Drop Camp DIY

Drop camp DIY.Saved some money by providing our own gear. Everything went smoothly from dinner and breakfast the day before from the wranglers to the pack out! I always felt that Ck ranch wanted to ensure we had a great time. Saw elk even called in a few. No shots but thats bowhunting! Awesome service and awesome views!

Species Hunted: Elk

Game Quality: Decent

Accommodation Quality: Good

Camp Condition: Great

Food Quality: Great

Guide Experience: Mostly very good

Other Personal Experience: Great

Overall Impression: Good

Recommend: Definitely

Reviewer Comments: Al and his family have run this outfit for decades. It's him, his wife, daughter, son, brother, and other kin and assorted good folk. They are the real deal. It's all public land, heavily hunted, so you're not guaranteed anything other than excellent effort and knowledge on their part. What else can you ask?

Reviewer Comments: A classic family-run operation. Everyone's good people - honest and hard working. In two hunts (one fully guided, one a drop camp) I've taken two bulls, all on public land. Gotta be willing to work, though, since it's rugged country.

Reviewer Comments: I have been on two hunts with this outfitter. Third trip is coming up. All the hunts have been unguided. Accomodations are great, the country is beautiful, and Al and his people are an honest hard working bunch. The chance of killing a P&Y bull isn't great, but the chance of getting a shot at a legal bull is (if you do your part, ie be in great shape, have some calling prowess, be willing to work). In short, Circle K ranch will hold up their end of the deal. If you hold up your end, you will have a great hunt.

Utah Hunting Information

Utah has recently been outstanding for trophy elk, but the best tags take many years to draw. Utah does have conservation tags available for purchase that allow hunters to bypass the drawing. Given the high demand for these premium tags prices can be high. In the past Utah has been a top trophy mule deer state but recently only a handful of units consistently produce B&C caliber deer.

Kansas Hunting Information

Kansas is one of the top producing monster whitetail buck states in the country. It also has some excellent turkey hunting and a few big mule deer in the western part of the state. Kansas has an excellent reputation as a top notch destination for upland birds. It has excellent populations of pheasant and quail due to the vast expanse of suitable prairie and grassland type habitat.
