2018 Elk Hunt
Vice-President, Finance Kansas Natural Gas Operating LC
I have had the opportunity to hunt with Rocky Mountain Outfitters of Colorado on two trips. The first was on public land and the second was on a private ranch. I had never been elk hunting before and was excited to have an opportunity to make it happen. I had done extensive research and narrowed down prospective outfitters to just a few. After visiting with Kevin Meland, I knew that I was going to hunt with Rocky Mountain Outfitters. As always, when trying something for the first time, like elk hunting at altitude, I was a little apprehensive about what I may have gotten myself into. From the moment I met Kevin at the trail head, all concerns quickly faded away.
For the public land hunt, we rode horseback up to our tent camp. The crew with Rocky Mountain Outfitters made sure I had a solid mount and provided excellent instruction on how to ride a horse on mountain trails. Once in camp, Kevin and Marc made every effort to make sure I was comfortable and ready to hunt. We hiked and rode in some of the most beautiful county I’ve ever been. The hunting was great! We were into elk every day. Kevin and Marc consistently put me in situations for hunting success and shot opportunities. This public land hunt was truly an adventure!
For my private ranch hunt, we utilized campers for sleeping and showers. We were able to get around the ranch using a side by side ATV. We still did a great deal of hiking. The scenery was breathtaking. Again, Rocky Mountain Outfitters’ attention to detail and genuine concern regarding my stay in camp and my hunting experience was outstanding. We saw elk every day and I saw some true giants. Again, Kevin and Marc consistently put me in situations to give me the best opportunity to take an elk.
My experience with Rocky Mountain Outfitters of Colorado has shown me that Kevin and Marc are men of high character. They have proven to me that they excel in providing a great hunting experience. They sweat the details and will make your time with them in camp or in the elk woods the best. We ate extremely well and the camp accommodations were very comfortable. I would recommend Rocky Mountain Outfitters of Colorado wholeheartedly! I can’t wait to hunt with them again in the future!
