Colorado Flat Tops Elk Hunting

Our hunting trips consist of everything from a drive-in glamping style camp, an 8 - mile horseback ride to a remote wall tent in a non-motorized area, to spiking out several nights in a minimalist backpacking camp. This allows us to cater to all levels of physical ability.
