Drop Camps and Guided Hunts
Drop Camps and Spike Camps
sawbuck Outfitters drop camps and spike camps are reasonably priced and very popular. You are dropped off by our packers at a fully outfitted drop camps (food not included) by horseback. Our drop camps are fully outfitted with all of the standard camp essentials: canvas tents, propane stoves, propane lights, cots, tables, and all the cooking gear you will need. These are wilderness drop camps, where you are taken in and dropped off by horseback at these drop camps. We then let you know where animals have been seen and harvested in the past. The drop camps are recommended for experienced hunters who want to get deep into the back country without all of packing in and setting up of a wilderness camp. We highly recommend renting a Satellite phone for a couple of reasons. One reason being your safety, and secondly, to communicate with us if you get meat down. Once you call after the animal is shot, we can schedule to pack out your harvested animal.
Colorado Guided Hunts
Sawbuck Outfitters guided Colorado hunts are traditional horse and mule pack in hunting camps. These guided hunts are in the West Elk and Raggeds Wilderness areas in the Gunnison National Forest. No motorized vehicles are allowed in these areas. This improves the quality of the guided hunts and your hunting experience. Professional guides and experienced mountain horses get you to those remote areas where you will find game. During your guided hunts we hunt hard using calls and the stalking method, depending on the season. Our chef cooks hardy mountain meals for those long days in the woods. The camp accommodations are dry canvas tents with wood and propane stoves, propane lights, cots with pads, and tables. Our guided hunts and camps are limited to small groups. Sawbuck Outfitters will provide you with a safe, ethical, comfortable, and exciting wilderness hunting experience.
***Guided hunts are only upon special request and limited.
