In my over 60 years of quite successful bow hunting all over North America I can honestly say I have never had a more organized, knowledgeable and hard working outfitter than than Paul and his crew, and I've had some good ones. Grandpa Chuck, you get a special mention for the great breakfasts, lunches and dinners you made including a different fresh baked pie every day.
Fantastic camp, great horses, knowledgeable hosts. Paul's operation is family run with three generations in camp. We loved that. And for a remote wall tent camp there were many creature comforts not expected. Go 7-days on most backcountry elk hunts and you'll have a newfound appreciation for grandpa's cooking and Beaver Creek's heated shower tent.
I hunted with Beaver Creek Outfitters the second week in November. I had never been on a guided hunt before and I must say it was everything I expected and more. The livestock was excellent. The food was better than home. I saw game (elk and mule deer) every day I was there. I hope to go back and I would recommend booking a hunt with Paul. You'll get your money's worth.
The week I spent with you far exceeded any expectations I had. To shoot a 6x5 elk on the first day in the camp was a foretaste of the week to follow, and shooting a nice mule deer Thursday topped off the week. By my count in the journal I kept, I saw over 300 head of elk during the week, and over 100 mule deer.
I hunted the last week of November and we saw game everyday. I took a 6x5 Elk and a 4x4 Mule Deer on the third full day of the hunt. The animals were taken within a two hour period. For a first hunt this was one hell of a start. I only hope its not my last. I would highly recommend this hunt.
Everyone went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our hunt and had all the supplies necessary to be comfortable and successful on our hunt. Especially was I impressed with the amount of game seen on this hunt. The deer I shot was the largest I've ever killed. He will definitely wind up on a wall in my study for others to see.
