Max of six per camp, but usually 4-5 guys will be in camp at once. This area has a lot of roads and so it is not a very physically demanding hunt. Hunters will start high on the plateaus and glass the canyons for big bulls. Hunter should be comfortable with 300-600 yard shots. Bigger bulls may require longer shots. Experienced guides will help with shot set up and provide shooting tripods. This is the perfect place in Colorado to cash in those elk points! Option to add additional hunting days or a mule deer if drawn.
