If you are tired of running into atv’s and hunters everywhere you go then it is time to try one of our hunts in a roadless area of Colorado.  Only horses and foot traffic are allowed in the majority of  my permit.

In our trophy roadless area we have taken two Boone and Crockett and two Pope and Young Elk. Colorado’s elk herds are and will stay the largest of all western states. The quality of our Elk has risen since the 4-point or better rule. More heavy horned five and six point bulls now exist, they are no longer uncommon in Colorado. In our timber areas there are many springs and wallows to attract and hold the Elk. Our area is very diverse, with open areas that have lots of bunch grass and buck brush, lush meadows hidden in the dark timber and aspen grove areas. There are scattered springs and creeks that hold game in the area. The lower country is full of oak brush that attracts Elk and Mule Deer with the acorns and abundant cover provided. The remote settings and pristine beauty all add to your exciting adventure in the rugged atmosphere of the Rockies! Colorado Elk herds are at an all time high. Thanks to the 4-point restriction our young bulls have been protected and this has given us more mature bulls. Some of these mature bulls will be spotted yearly.

If you haven’t yet experienced a horse back hunt, where few hunters roam, you owe it to yourself. We have many hunting packages available to hunt the majestic monarchs of the Gunnison National Forest.

Pope and Young Elk

We offer fully guided hunts, 1×1, to semi & unguided packages. We generally allow no more than six hunters in a camp unless they are part of the same group. Horses and mules will be used to pack you into camp. We will leave camp daily on horseback or foot. Horseback rides vary daily, from one to two hours depending on where and how your guide plans to hunt. Mules will be taken with the guide daily to pack your backpacks and gear for a safer ride. Game will generally be packed out in non-prime time hunting! To enjoy your hunt to the fullest, hunters should be in good physical condition and willing to work hard. Guided pack-in camp hunts are all 1×1 or 2×1 Rifle hunts. Come and enjoy the hunt of a lifetime in the great Rockies of Colorado.

Although Western Colorado Outfitters does not guarantee all guests their game, we feel each individual has a great chance of filling their tags. Our camps are covered by a radio system for your safety. Most of our hunts are conducted on our US Forest Service Permits. All hunts are fair chase in scenic Colorado.
