Reviewer Comments: Tom's operation is first rate. I hunted with him (he was one of the guides as well) during an archery elk hunt. My first time elk hunting. Tom is extremely ethical and expects this from his hunters. His operation was very well organized, and you always knew well in advance what the plan would be for each hunt. This was a Lodge based hunt with plenty of walking each morning and night. Expect close shots. Tom made sure we practiced at 5 and 10 yds - that was a very real possiblity given the terrain we hunted. We were close to elk every hunt, but not within bow range every hunt due to wind swirling, animals having something else in mind etc, but the possibility of a close encounter was there every day. I ultimately got a average 5x5 bugling like crazy with an 18 yd shot on the third morning- it is still going on the wall, if nothing else other than due to the great memories of the hunt..... Everything about the 5 day hunt/7 day stay was very very good. I would come back in a heart beat. All the guides were great - they interacted with everyone in camp, not just "their hunters" great stories, everyone gave each other good natured guy crap about their bows (Mathews v. Bowtech -"my XYZ would've just pinned him to the tree and you wouldn't have had to worry about a blood trail at all) etc. Most everyone had an opportunity - some botched due to hunter error like pulling the trigger on your release before the bull got to a shooting lane (one hunter did this twice in one day). Out of 10 hunters, 4 took home an animal. Only downside is that this is an over the counter license area of Colorado. The really big bulls are few and far between. But there are lots of legal bulls in the area - did not see another hunter the entire time (frequently we were on BLM land).
