Unit 61 is hands down one of Colorado’s most exciting units to hunt. This is a great unit for harvesting bulls in the 310″-330″ range. There are bulls up to 365 inches killed here every year. Unit 61 has the best bull to cow ratio of all the units we hunt. This allows for a long active rut. In a typical week of hunting we will see a lot of average 280-310″ 6 point bulls as we search for the larger trophy elk. We take a great deal of pride in being the best outfitter in the unit. We have a year around scouting program and run over 20 game cameras in the unit. As a client of ours you will receive monthly updates during the summer showing you what we have found during our scouting trips.
Our hunts are fully furnished and guided. We have a lot of terrain options and hunting techniques to accommodate hunters of almost any physical condition. Transportation during your hunt will vary from trucks, ATVs, and UTVs. Horse accessed hunting is also available upon request. Hunting will vary from you and your guide intensively glassing to locate elk, then using spot and stalk techniques, or calling/bugling setups to get you into comfortable shooting distances. We also conduct some hunting from blinds and tree stands over active wallows and water sources.
We advise clients to practice shooting up to 400 yards to be fully prepared for longer shot opportunities that commonly present themselves in this area.
Lodging is a modern wall tent camp located at 9,000ft in the heart of elk country. Camp is complete with hard wood floors, high end cots and a generator for electric power in the mornings and evenings.
Full kitchen with cook and home made meals are provided before and after each day of hunting. We also provide sack lunches for the field. You will appreciate our hard work ethics and first class western hospitality.
Most seasons we allow hunters to arrive two days prior to the start of your hunt. This allows you to get settled in and spend one full day scouting with your guide before your hunt starts.
Quality is our #1 focus.
Please keep in mind this is a draw unit and requires years of applying to draw.
