Just returned from our now annual elk hunt. We have been hunting the west elk wilderness near gunnison Colorado using west elk wilderness outfitters for the last few years. They offer very reasonable guided and drop camp trips for elk and mule deer. It's great because it's a full wilderness experience, no motors, atvs, etc. Just wall camps and horses/mules. The guy that runs it does an exceptional job and I highly recommend them. They even have a dog that is trained to retrieve you beer from the cooler.
I shot a 4x5, as did my dad and our friends shot a nice 5x6 and 6x6.
I shot mine in the last minutes of the last day of the last season. 285 yards.
If you are looking to do an elk trip I would highly suggest using them for either their fully guided trips or their drop camps.I can't say enough excellent things about the owner and his crew. They truly do an exceptional job and are some of the hardest working people I have ever met.
i just figured I couldn't post our pictures and not give the guys who make it possible a big thanks.
