A bull elk bugle echoes through the high country on a cool September morning.  A camo clad archer waits excitedly as a herd bull pushes his cows in for a drink from a high mountain spring.  Elk hunting has always been a passion and a main event for us here at Rawhide Outfitters.  Our guides, all with a lifetime of experience,  have the knowledge, techniques and love of the hunt to ensure a fun and memorable hunt.  We've specialized in archery and rifle permit elk hunts in units 29 and 37-A since we began outfitting in 1989. We enjoyed high success rates in these units.  Since then we've added elk hunts in units 28, 36 and 36-B.

At Rawhide Outfitters our main priority has always been quality over quantity of hunts, being very careful to never over hunt an area.  We very seldom have over three elk hunters in a camp at a time.

Our one-on-one guided elk hunts last six days.  We pack in to our mountain camps using an experienced pack string of horses and mules.  We provide all the accommodations and equipment needed for a comfortable stay at our pre-established camps in wall tents.  Our full time camp cook prepares hearty, plentiful meals specializing in Dutch oven cooking, making this a highlight of the hunting camp experience.  Our clients have become our friends as most of them have returned to hunt with us year after year since we have started. If a small family run business that strives for quality and pays great attention to detail sounds right for you, please contact us or call for a list of our clientele.

Ask about late season mule deer hunts; also limited-draw trophy species of sheep, goats and moose.
