Rocky Mountain Elk Colorado

North central Colorado is home to some of the best elk habitat in the west. This outfitter has many years of experience guiding elk and mule deer hunters throughout Colorado. All hunts are guided 2x1, but a 1x1 upgrade is available. Limiting the number of hunters taken each year has ensured that clients receive 100% of the outfitters, guides, and staff’s attention during their hunt. This is the reason our hunters leave satisfied after each elk hunting adventure.

This outfitter has exclusive hunting rights to over 200,000 acres of wilderness that borders the Rocky Mountain National Park. This wilderness pack-in hunt offers a great experience for bulls ranging in the 270”-320” class. The outfitter has 6 wilderness camps fully set-up with comfortable wall tents, cots, and stoves. There is a max of 6 elk hunters per week and 2 hunters with 1 guide per camp. The outfitter will rotate camps to keep the pressure off the elk. Rifle and archery hunts are 100% draw and muzzleloader is 50% draw. Success rates average around 70% on mature bulls across all seasons. Drop camp hunts are also available.

The outfitter also leases large private ranches that allow access to large landlocked tracts of public land. This unit is managed for a 45 bulls for 100 cows ratio and is home to a large resident herd of elk. During the regular archery, muzzleloader, and rifle seasons, you will be hunting mature bulls from the resident herd that range from 320”-380”. This hunt can be conducted from either wall tent camps or lodges depending on the weather and ranch being hunted. Archery tags take 2 points to draw while muzzleloader and first rifle season take 6 points. The second, third, and fourth rifle seasons typically take 3 points to draw.

After the rutting activity has stopped and the cold weather sets in, elk from the Rocky Mountain National Park start to migrate into this unit. This unit offers two special late season hunts to help manage the animals migrating out of the park. The hunt in late November through early December takes 4 points to draw. The hunt from middle January to late January takes 5 points to draw. Landowner tags are available for this hunt. You will stay in a nice lodge with comfortable accommodations and eat home cooked meals every night.

New Mexico Muzzleloader Bull

New Mexico Muzzleloader Bull

OAS client Mark was able to take this trophy elk on a recent trip to New Mexico. Mark was hunting during the muzzle loader season which offers the chance to catch the tail end of the rut while hunting with a weapon with a little longer reach then a bow. Mark killed this bull on day two of a five day hunt. Read more...


My Husband and I booked our honeymoon adventure through OAS two years ago. I knew that I was marrying a man who loved to hunt and he knew I wanted an unforgettable experience. We were not the easiest clients to work with; we wanted the hunt of a lifetime. A few things OAS was able to do for us: My husband wanted a great hunt, good food, and to stay within a budget. I asked for a lodge with pet-friendly accommodations, I wanted to hunt with my husband in a stand (not in a ground blind), and I wanted to use my bow. OAS was able to find a hunt that encompassed all of the things we wanted: a great lodge with 3 amazing meals provided every day, a company who accepted our small pets, and a guide willing to accommodate such a ‘needy girl’. I had the time of my life on this hunt! The week of our hunt I got the first kill and ended up with the largest bear of the week. I cannot image a more amazing experience to share than going to Canada and bringing home two Black Bears. Most couples bring home a few souvenirs and pictures from their honeymoon, we have two beautiful trophies mounted in our cabin that remind of us the amazing experience every day. Our hunt was great, our guides were the best, and all our travels were eased with the guidance we received from OAS. I can truly say that working with OAS has been our pleasure and we would recommend working with Chris to everyone!
