yeah

but its a limited unit, so depending on what season you want to hunt, you may need a point or 10. Probably the most overvalued muzzleloader hunt in the state by nonresidents though.

is it muzzerloader only? We

is it muzzerloader only? We are setting this hunt through a friend of my dad.. i have the actual brochure for the hunt with the info and costs... but there is NO contact # for the outfitter... Im waiting on more info from dads friend.. Here is whats on the brochure:

Colorado Rocky Mountain Elk Hunt 2012

2011

$354 send by april 5

-3 processing fee

-25 perference point cost

$326 returned june 2011

 

2012

$549 tag cost - april

$5 conservation stamp

$554 Total cost

Total cost of receiving an elk tage in one of the best areas in Colorado

$ 28 + $554 = $582

Other Cost:

$1100 to be packed into a spike camp. tent,stove,cooking utencils furnished. Just bring food, clothes, rifle and misc...

--ALL INFO TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM BROCHURE--

To be honest is sounds cheap..

They also supply the horses and they will help us get to our camp site anywhere from 8 to 10 miles in... they also will send in riders 1-2 times a day to check on us.. The have 8 camps across Area 66 with a limit of no more than 6 hunters per camp (there will be 5 of us)

no

I just meant that the muzzleloader hunt there must hyped up by someone.  It takes 4 points for a resident, but 10 for a nonresident.  Should tell you something when the out of staters value a hunt 2.5 times as much as the residents.  It takes 0 points to draw in rifle season for a resident.

 

But that does seem cheap.  I'd be careful.  Good area though.
