Horseback Wilderness Hunt on Public Land

Our deluxe guided hunts are as good as you will find anywhere! These are classic, Rocky Mountain High Country horseback hunts. Elk are our main target on these hunts, but mule deer and black bears are also common and can be hunted for no additional charge.

To provide the best hunting experience possible, we usually only book 6 hunters per season into our deluxe guided camps. All hunts are based out of a fully outfitted base camp, canvas cook tents, and sleeping tents with wood stoves are provided, along with comfortable cots, tables, and chairs to make camp your home away from home. Each camp is fully staffed with cooks and guides. All food and drinks are provided and prepared for you each day.

Tags are bought Over-The-Counter

Each morning, you will ride out of camp with your guide into the area you will be hunting for the day. You will return to camp each evening to a fresh-cooked meal and a warm fire.

The Area

Our horseback deluxe guided hunts take place in the San Juan National Forest in Colorado, Game Management Units 74, 75, or 751. We have one of the largest and most diverse permit areas in the state. We have many reserved camp locations and most of them are between 6 and 10 miles on horseback from the trailhead. Elevations we hunt range from 8500ft to 12500ft. We hunt everything from lower ponderosa pine and scrub oak country all the way up to alpine meadows. Where you hunt depends on the season. Because of the size of the area, we are able to move our camp and follow the migration pattern of the game. Most areas we hunt can be accessed by horseback and then hunted on foot. Being in good physical condition will greatly increase your enjoyment and success on this hunt.

Base price is per person for 2x1 guided Archery hunt. Make it a Muzzleloader or Rifle hunt for an additional fee per person. Make it 1x1 guided, add additional guided days or non hunting guests for additional fees.
