Would Recommend: If you are a hunter-yes

Overall Impression: excellent

I've rifle hunted with this outfitter multiple times and have gotten a bull elk every year-there are pictures of my last bull on the web site and video-big old 6x6 herd bull. I've been elk hunting for more than 20 years in every western state. This hunt is my favorite. Conrad is a character but he has a very good heart and runs a top notch outfit. This is not a wilderness hunt as you stay in excellent accomodations including a shower nicer than my home shower but regardless you are expected to be a hunter and to work hard. You drive to hunt locations each day and some drives especially to some prime draw areas can be a pretty good drive. The country hunted is beautiful elk habitat but as with any open range hunting you have to find the elk. As with any elk hunt the elk numbers can be affected by weather conditions, other hunters and rut related behavior. Each year I've hunted there I had different challenges but with the help of the outfitters "gut feelings" and the guides talents I've always found and harvested a bull elk. Planning on going back in 2010 and will take my son on his first elk hunt with me. I suggest you take advantage of the Gunnison area if you hunt here before and/or after the hunt and the flyfishing is great!
