This archery elk hunt takes place in the high country of unit 20 near Rocky Mountain National Park, which is home to some of the biggest bulls in the state. Non-residents can draw this archery tag with only a few points and be in an area that consistently produces 300” bulls and better. This high camp is accessed by horseback where you and your guide will hunt on foot from a comfortable wall tent camp. We only take one hunter at a time on this hunt, guided 1×1. This area is not for the faint of heart. It requires the hunter to be in top physical condition as you’ll be hunting at 10,000’. However, the rewards can be great!
