Wilderness Rifle Pack-in Hunts
This is the ultimate in elk hunting. The way elk should be hunted! No fences to bind you or the elk, just miles of seemingly endless elk habitat. There is no greater hunting accomplishment than having harvested a wilderness bull elk. Pack-in elk hunts are our specialty. We raise and train most all of our stock for the rigors of this type of hunt. All of our equipment is top notch and has been field tested, tried and true in the wilderness. Having outfitted in these same areas for over 20 years we have become very accustomed to the patterns of this particular herd. Oftentimes we know how they are going to react before they do. Action Adventures is a full time outfitter and hunting for elk hunting is what we do best.
Our guided camps are in a Limited Draw Unit that takes several years to draw a tag. This works out well because this popular hunt books up several years in advance. If you are looking for a truly exceptional Colorado Rifle Hunt planning ahead and getting a tag in a limited unit is well worth the wait.
You will be provided with a well outfitted camp, two home cooked meals, and a sack lunch each day. 1 knowledgeable guide per two hunters will assist you on your adventure. This trip is 5 days of hunting and 1 day of travel at each end for a total of 7 days. As with all of our trips nothing is spared to ensure your complete satisfaction.

You are provided with lodging, 2 home cooked meals, along with a sack lunch each day, pack horses, and a guide in camp to show you the ranch, plus GPS coordinates of the best spots. This hunt allows you the freedom of a drop camp, to hunt on your own without all the cooking and camp chores. You will hunt out of our private ranch that also accesses several thousand acres of land locked national forest. The lower end of the ranch adjoins a remote state wildlife area. All you have to do is concentrate on bagging that big bull. You are outfitted with everything you need to have a successful hunt. If you like the challenge of elk hunting on your own with all the extras of a full service hunt without the high price tag, this is the one for you. Comparable guided hunts would run in excess of $5000. These are great hunts for the veteran hunter and novice alike. You will have a comfortable cabin to stay in and the finest in home cooked meals. Anyone filling their tags early can fish for rainbows and brookies in our private lake. The ranch can be reached by 4WD, and provides a great opportunity for those that can't get around like they use to. There are miles of road less forest for those wanting to hunt this remote unspoiled area.
