Hunting the Big Blue Wilderness is vast terrain of scrub oak, aspen, spruce and lodgepole pine climbing the ridges, creek valleys and rocky outcrops. Big Blue Wilderness is a non-motorized public access area.  Big game hunting in south western Colorado is a GREAT experience. Both the majestic elk and trophy mule deer are legendary to Unit 65 hunting area. The Elk herd in this region is resident to the area and many of the animals from this region are listed in both the Boone / Crockett and Pope / Young record books.  Travel to the high country spending the duration of the hunt in the heart of elk, mule deer and bighorn sheep country. Our experienced staff will help make your hunt a successful and enjoyable experience.

This is our premier hunt and what we specialize in. This is a 7-day trip with 5 days of fully guided hunting.  The trip starts by horseback to a remote fully furnished camp in wilderness. Once at camp your hunt is by foot only.  Your guide will provide food and cook for you, call for you (elk), provide trophy and meat care and help pack out your animal. If you are an extreme hunter this is the hunt for you. Being in excellent health and the best physical shape gives you the best chance to harvest a mature trophy animal. This hunt is restricted to individuals who weigh no more than 240 lbs. This restriction is required for the extreme conditions that may be encountered. The success rate on this hunt is high and it promises to be an experience of a lifetime.
