We have partnered with High Lonesome Outfitters in the Sarvis Creek Wilderness southeast of Steamboat Springs for assistance with the drop camp, packing in all our equipment, the use of their horses and packing out our elk. This hunt offers a true western back country experience! Hunters will be packed in via horseback a day before the hunt and packed out at the end of the hunt. This unit offers high quality habitat hunting pinyon, juniper and sagebrush ridges between 8,500ft and 11,000ft. The bulls in this unit range 280″-300″ on average with regular trophies taken at 300″ +. 3rd season rifle, boasts the highest success rates for bulls taken in Colorado. The changing seasons and temperature offers hunters the rare opportunity to hunt bulls as they transition from higher elevation down to their winter ranges.
The amenities do not stop there; camp chefs will prepare all your meals. Hunters will awake to a warm breakfast to start their day and sent with a boxed lunch to accompany them on their daily adventure. During 3rd rifle we hunt all day so we don’t miss any action. Hunters will return for dinner awaiting them after a long day of hunting. So if you enjoy the solitude of mother nature in the backcountry you do not want to miss this hunt.
Our hunts are all inclusive. We don’t tack on trophy fees, ATV rental, packing out your elk, assistance with processing and taxidermy, etc…
Due to the back country terrain we will be hunting, hunters are encouraged to use Horses to access their hunts each day if they feel their bodies just aren’t up for hiking anymore. Horses can be provided for the duration of your hunt for $595.
Hunters are responsible for providing their own personal hunting gear, clothing, tags and guide gratuity. Minturn Anglers is a proud dealer of Sitka Gear and our trained professionals will be happy to go over all your necessary preparations from your clothing down to your gear and tags.
