"Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up, as did men of another age, to the challenge of nature. In the hills and on the water the character of a man comes out." Abram T. Collier
Trophy Bull Elk
Colorado Trophy Elk $7500
Lone Star Outfitters offers over 50 years experience in hunting these big game animals and has focused on a prime area in southern Colorado noted for the high quality genetics and prime habitat. Owner, Walt Isenhour, has over 30 years experience pursuing trophy bull elk and has identified the area just north of the Vermejo Park and Hill Ranch as a key area for harvesting bulls of the highest quality. Our hunters have taken 46 bulls scoring over 320 since 2004 with the largest bull, a massive 7 x 7 scoring 366, topping the list. We encourage our hunters to pass on any bull scoring less than 320. Please visit our Photo Gallery for the excitement. Unit 851 is primarily private land with game management plans in place that insure the future of these trophy animals.
Lone Star Outfitters offers private ranch hunts in the heart of trophy elk country. We provide our hunters with fair chase hunts for trophy, monster bull elk. The famed Vermejo Park and Hill ranches are just 6.5 miles south and southwest of our ranch in Colorado. These surrounding private ranches now offer over 1,000,000 acres of prime trophy elk habitat and an elk herd of proven genetics. Our goal is to provide reasonable priced hunts for these proven trophy, quality bulls.
