Troublesome Basin

It’s one of the most undisturbed pieces of Earth in America – a place that’s as natural as the horse you’ll be riding in on.

Troublesome Basin in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest is home to a plethora of wild animals, trees, birds and home to some of the most incredible views in Colorado. The basin  basically connects Rocky Mountain National Park and Routt National Forest, so it’s a high traffic area for animals, considering it features some of the lowest elevations in the Rocky Mountains.

We hunt elk and deer throughout the year in the Troublesome Basin, but those aren’t the only animals that call this treasured land home. Bobcats, eagles, falcons and black bears are sometimes spotted while we pursue trophy elk across 80,000 acres of the Troublesome Basin.

There’s not too many places left in the U.S. where the only access to hunting area is by horseback. It’s real camping. We set up heated and lighted tents with cots at night, and have breakfast lunch and dinner all outdoors.

Many outfitters can offer to the opportunity to take a monster elk, but none of them can offer to do it on public land that’s so untouched you’ll feel like you’re in a different part of the world.

Come join us this fall for elk and deer hunting season. You’ll be accompanied by great guides, cooks and incredible outdoor scenery. It’s the way hunting was meant to be, and something that’s never changed around here.
