THE HUNT                    

at Western Sky Outfitters we have a passion for wilderness hunting.  In order to effectively hunt the most remote corners of our great state, we designed our extreme wilderness hunt. These hunts have the highest success rate on quality animals!  we have killed many deer scoring over 190" with the biggest being a 210" buck.  We have also killed many elk that scored over 330" with the largest in 2018 scoring 384"! DUE TO THE EXTREM AND REMOTE NATURE OF THE AREA IT IS BEST TO HUNT 1X1 WITH YOUR GUIDE.  You will be packed in to a small but comfortable base camp on horseback 6-18 miles from the nearest trailhead.  Yes thats up to 18 miles in!  You don't get any further from the road anywhere in Colorado!  You will be left with your guide to glass for game from your tent.  Base camps will be one of our top of the line insulated tents.  these tents are designed to be heated by the heat given off by the lantern and cook stove.  These camps are TYPICALLY set up for tWO people only, ONE hunters and one guide and are supplied with cots and a table.  All food is included on these hunts, but meals are more basic and you and your guide will prepare them.  You will hunt out of camp with your guide each day on foot.  Our extreme wilderness hunts are designed to be lightweight and mobile, light gear and a good pack are recommended since you and your guide may spike camp out overnight.  Be prepared to spend your days hiking and glassing remote mountain valleys and slopes.  Top physical condition is a must!  All hunts are 7 days, 5 full days of hunting and 2 days of travel to and from camp.


THE AREA 

Our extreme wilderness hunts take place on the San Juan National Forest in Colorado Game Management Units 74, 75, and 751.  We hunt Colorado's Largest designated wilderness area, the Weminuche Wilderness.  The Weminuche is comprised of 487,912 acres of rugged and remote mountains and valleys. Three peaks in our area rise above 14,000ft.  No motorized or wheeled vehicles are allowed in the wilderness, so foot and horseback are the only ways in.  We target the valleys deep within the wilderness that get the least traffic and hunting pressure.  You will see few, if any other hunters on these hunts.  This is a truly special and unique part of Colorado, and this is a special and unique hunt designed to hunt this area as effectively as possible.  Its a hunt you wont forget!
