ELK HUNTS


OutWest Guides offers true western style, wilderness elk hunts from horseback. Chances of connecting with branch-antlered bulls are excellent, and trophy bulls ranging from 290 inches to 325 inches are taken each year, with bulls in the 330-350 inch range roaming our outfitting area. We offer drop camps, semi-guided hunts, fully guided wilderness hunts, and comfortable lodge hunts! In recent years we have seen our elk herd grow an increasing number of sizable bulls, and the numbers of elk in our area are terrific.  Our elk hunts are fair chase hunts in a wilderness setting.

We outfit in the rugged Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness area and part of the Raggeds Wilderness area surrounding Marble, Colorado, in the southern part of Game Management Unit 43. Our wilderness camps are accessed only by foot or by horseback. There is no ATV access to any of our camps. Our camps are stout wall tents with wood stoves, cook stoves, cots, floors, and as comfortable as we can make it when everything is packed in on horseback.

Spot and Stalk Black Bear Hunt


SPECIAL HUNT – September Rifle Bear Hunt- This is a challenging hunt, but we do have a lot of bear in our area. You need to be in good shape, and be ready to make the shot count when your opportunity presents itself. Bears are very elusive and can be hard to find during daylight hours, so we spend plenty of time in the summer scouting to find their hangouts. Do not expect to see multiple bears each day. Expect one good opportunity during your hunt, and make it count! This is a very challenging hunt,  because black bear are very tough to pattern.  Expect to hunt hard for one good opportunity.
