Colorado Bow Hunts
Bow Hunting is our Specialty! We have been taking bow hunters successfully for over 25 years. These many years of experience have given us the knowledge required to get you well within bow hunting range. If you have never had the opportunity to hunt elk during the rut, you don't know what you are missing. Crisp cool mornings, elk bugling in the pre-dawn darkness, the musky smell of an elk wallow. All this coupled with the excitement of close encounters with one of natures most intense big game animals, makes for an exhilarating hunt. There is definitely nothing like bow hunting for elk in the wilds of Colorado.
Trophy timberline mule deer is our passion. For those willing to take the journey a true trophy experience awaits you.Backcountry Bow Hunt Timberline Mule Deer Private Land Drop Camps
Wilderness Backcountry Bow Hunts
The wilderness backcountry bow hunt is our newest offering. We are not new to archery or wilderness hunting. But we have developed this new hunt to maximize your opportunity at taking home a trophy of a lifetime. We took the amenities of a big base camp and shrunk them down to a small spike camp style hunt. By employing small camps we are able to camp closer to the game and spend less time on horseback riding to and from hunting areas giving you more time to spend in the field hunting.
These 2 hunter 1 guide camps are located deep in the heart of elk county that is only accessible by foot or horseback. We pack all of your gear into camp by horseback. Then you are left with your guide for 6 days of remarkable hunting. The hunting area consists of deep grassy valleys, stands of dark timber, high ridges, and parks of alpine tundra above timberline. Numerous wallows decorate the many secluded basins. Mornings usually include bugling bulls. Afternoons will find you sitting active wallows or high on a ridge glassing elk.

Wilderness Pack-in Timberline Mule Deer Hunting
For this hunt we pack deep into the Uncompahgre Wilderness and hunt these Monster Mule Deer above timberline and beyond. Each summer these big boys call this area home. For several years we have only hunted elk in these drainages, and left the deer undisturbed. After years of scouting and drooling over these bucks we have opened the first two weeks of archery season to hunt these trophies. There has not been trophy potential like this for 30 years. This is the most action packed hunt available today.
This hunt is not for everyone.
These mule deer are living in extreme altitudes and tremendously tough country. If you are up to the challenge the game is there for the taking.
