This was my first experience ever with a guide/outfitter operation. All I can really say is that the rest of them have some very big shoes to fill after my experience with the guys and accommodations at Elk Camp Outfitters, that's if I ever use anyone besides them again. We did a 4 man drop camp during the first rifle season. From the minute we walked up to the lodge it felt like I was visiting with old friends and not just another hunter. Ashley, Nick and the rest of the crew are some of the best people I've met. They are genuine and friendly full of great advise and tips. The ride into our drop camp was great and the camping accommodations took me by total surprise. The hunting and wildlife was awesome. We seen wildlife every day, from beavers and deer to deer and elk! We filled 2 out of 4 tags with very respectable bulls. We have already booked our hunt for next year and I cant wait! if you've ever wondered if a drop camp or guide is worth it, coming from a do-it-yourself elk hunter, it is! Couldnt recommend Ashley and his crew more!
