Description

A great opportunity for a drop camp DIY hunt in Colorado. This is an over-the-counter unit. Archery pack-in and pack-out dates are flexible because the season is four weeks. The second week of the season and the last week (after muzzleloader is over) are the most popular times for archers. Hunter must have a patient mindset to hunt the first week of archery season. However, some of the biggest bulls are killed in the pre-rut before they have gotten the cows together. Archery season is the best time of the year to be in the Flat Tops. The weather is good and the elk are bugling. It is also the time of year where it isn’t abnormal to go an entire hunt without seeing another hunter. All drop camp hunt packages are 7 days (1 day pack-in, 5 days hunting, 1 day pack-out). However, hunters can add days to archery drop camps at a rate of $125 per day, per hunter.

          Description

          The drop camp is the soul of the wilderness outfitter. Not for the faint of heart, this do-it-yourself option was born in the age of the self sufficient hunter. All the hunter needs is the logistics of getting away from the trail-head and the help of a mule’s back getting game and supplies in/out of the deep wilderness. Camp gear has improved over time and modern technology has perfected logistics. However, the experience is mostly unchanged since its birth over a hundred years ago. The outfitter will get you packed into camps, and setup with all the outfitted gear. You do the huntin’, and outfitter will pack the meat and camp.
