Lake City Outfitters
There are all kinds of ways to hunt western big game animals, ours happens to be a full blown expedition into the wilderness of Colorado. We’ll ride horses, sleep in wall tents, and pursue game into areas that seem forbidding to most people.
Most of our hunting will take place above 11,000 ft. and up to 13,000 ft. The air is thin, but we will likely not see anyone other than those in our camp. Our area provides awesome elk bugling action during the archery seasons, and into the rifle seasons most years. This makes for great calling opportunities, but there are also excellent spot and stalk opportunities throughout our area.
Unit 66 is a limited quota draw area. This translates into – less hunters, more elk, and better elk quality. Our area has been hunted lightly over past several years, which also increases the average age of bulls. This gives our clients an above average chance at an above average Colorado bull.
For those with enough points, unit 66 is one of the best Mule Deer areas of the state. Drawing the tag takes patience, but it could produce a trophy deer scoring over 180in.
Our clients stay in heated canvas wall tents equipped with cots, tables, and stools. Breakfast and dinner are always warm meals at camp and lunch is usually taken in the field. Hunters will arrive the morning before the hunt, and will ride by horseback to base camp. Our camps are located several miles from the nearest road and are only accessible by foot or horseback. We use calm, gentle, and sure-footed horses, so even the least experienced horseman will enjoy travel through the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains searching for that one special trophy.
