Drop Camps

We offer furnished drop camps where we set the camp up prior to your arrival. The following is a list of what we furnish. A 12x14 or larger cook tent, woodburning stove, 2-burner propane stove, table, at least two 5-gallon water jugs, 2 propane lanterns, 2 dishpans, 1 handwashing pan, 2 skillets, 2 kettles, 1 griddle, 1 large coffee pot, 2 serving bowls, 1 pitcher, knives, serving spoons, forks, turners, etc., adequate table knives, forks, spoons, cups and plates for your size party.

For sleeping quarters, a wall tent will be set up for each four people. It will be equipped with a propane lantern, wood stove, and plastic ground cover. We also furnish an axe, shovel, bow saw, hammer and pliers. Propane for the cook stove and a pit type toilet will also be furnished. You must supply your own food and propane for your lantern. We do not supply firewood for your camp.

We also offer unfurnished drop camps where you furnish all your own equipment.  We pack you and your equipment in and drop you off in a good hunting location. 

Also included are saddle horses to ride in and out, 1-1/2 pack animals per person in and out, and your game packed out. Additional pack animals will cost $150.00 in and $150.00 out. We have a limit of 150# per pack animal, and this may be even less if items are too bulky or odd-shaped so they don't make suitable loads. The amount loaded on a pack animal will be decided by the packer. We do not pack  heavy cots or duffel bags longer than 28" or more than 48" in circumference, or excess liquor. Where we have to pack multiple cases of beer or other liquor we will charge $200.00 per pack animal load!

For all hunts, you'll need to bring a variety of warm clothing, warm waterproof footwear plus a change of footwear, gloves, a good two-piece rainsuit, knife, hatchet, small nylon rope, gun and ammo, or bow and arrows, good warm sleeping bag, binoculars, camera, towels, washcloths, chapstick, sun screen and of course proper license or licenses. Game bags and black pepper are good to have especially for archery muzzle loader seasons.

If you plan to drive to our pack station, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is a good idea. If you plan to fly, several rental companies have vehicles to rent at the Montrose or Grand Junction airports.
