As soon as you have
purchased the hunt, we recommend that you purchase your hunting
license either online or by mail from the Colorado Division of
www.wildlife.state.co.us. You can also purchase an
archery license over the counter when you get to Colorado.
All clients born after 1949 need to have a Hunter's Safety Card to
purchase a Big Game License. Broadheads must have a minimum
of two cutting edges 7/8" (Colorado Law Requirement).
We encourage everyone
to take time to prepare physically for the hunt. It will
allow you to cover more territory (we have access to over 56.000
acres) and increase your chances of success.
For your travel plans,
we recommend you reach Yampa a day before your pack in date.
We recommend lodging at Van Camp Cabins in Yampa, you must make
reservations in advance. The phone number is (970) 638-4254.

Yampa had several restaurants and you are only 30 miles south of
Steamboat Springs. If you plan to fly we can arrange for you
to be picked up at the Yampa Valley Airport in Hayden, Colorado.
On your pack in day,
you will be met in Yampa and will follow us by vehicle to the
trail that leads to camp (elevation 10,000 ft.). Your gear
will be packed and transported by mule and you will head to camp
(elevation 8,700 ft.). For your equipment, we recommend
Thinsulate and Gortex for cold weather hunting. It is not
uncommon for snow during the Archery seasons so please prepare for
it. For the mules sake, keep your gear to a maximum of 65
pounds and have your gear in one or two duffel bags.
We look forward to
seeing you this fall and we will do everything to make sure that
you have a memorable hunt.
