Unbelievable amount of elk

Great hunt. Owners and guides are top notch. Only reason I didn't give the hunt 5 stars is because we unfortunately got stuck in the same lodge as the group of alcoholics that were there at the same time as us. We couldn't fill our tags And get out of there fast enough.

Overall Impression: very favorable

Recommend: without hesitation

Reviewer Comments: Dick and Cheryl Dodds run a top notch elk hunt in North Colorado. All details were considered, hundreds of elk seen, and the food was good. This is not a rich mans hunt with a fancy lodge, just a high quality, helpfull outfit that was a huge improvement over my 2006 hunt in NW Colorado (See "Higher Ground" review this site)Elkhorn seperates the hunters, and you can expect to see dozens if not hundreds of elk and deer a day. If you have any skill with a rifle, you will do well here. Very recommended.

Reviewer Comments: Dick's operation is one of the most hunter friendly, and is the best I have been able to attend. The knowledge of his guides, the quantity of game, the quality of the camp personnel were all terrific.

Reviewer Comments: My Guide Jim? knew his stuff. Very expereienced guide and joy to hunt with. My other guide was a nice kid but not really woods-smart. I think Dick has a great operation and would suggest them if you are looking for a good, quanity hunt where you will see a lot of elk.

Reviewer Comments: First class hunt. There were 9 hunters in camp and all of us filled our tags. Pronghorn were so numerous that we could have filled our tags by noon on first day. Excellent opportunities for 14"+ bucks.

Species Hunted: Antelope

Game Quality: Poor 10" or less

Accommodation Quality: like 6 guys in a fishhouse

Camp Condition: poor - transfer case needed re

Food Quality: poor

Guide Experience: poor, at field judging

Other Personal Experience: poor

Overall Impression: poor

Recommend: NO WAY!

Reviewer Comments: I saw a total of 3 antelope bucks and shot one that the guide told me it was a typical 13" buck, and it turned out to be a non-typical 10". The guide left a full bladder and rectum in the animal after field dressing it. When I went to butcher it, the meat was contaminated with urine, and fecal matter. The sleeping quarters was like having to sleep in a small fish house with 6 guys. Too cozy for me! When I booked the hunt I was told by a very reputable consulting firm that the average hunter sees up to 50 bucks a day! Not based on my experience. Large amounts of antelope in NW Colorado do not exist there!

Ontario Hunting Information

Ontario is often considered a sportsman's paradise. This large province contains huge sections of wilderness, filled with thousands of lakes that provide excellent habitat for Canada moose and black bear. Excellent fishing for walleye, northern pike, muskie, smallmouth bass and other species can often be combined with a hunt. From spike camps to 5-star lodges, there are lodges, guides and outfitters for every adventure and every taste.

Manitoba Hunting Information

Manitoba is known as a top destination for avid waterfowl hunters. Huge flocks of ducks and geese can be found from the Arctic coast of Hudson Bay to the prairie potholes on the southern border of this Canadian province. There is no legal requirement for non-resident waterfowl hunters to use a guide, but many are available and a high percentage of non-Canadian hunters utilize them. In addition black bear, Canada moose and whitetails are hunted throughout the province.

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.
