Re: Wyoming Elk Hunting Thorofare area

OK, thanks for all the suggestions and guidance on the elk hunt....
Moving on to Colorado perhaps.

Received some good feedback from references from an outfitter called, Steamboat Lake Outfitters, that hunts the Zirkel wilderness in CO Game units... GMU’s 14 and 214


Anyone here have any info on this outfitter, hunted with them or in these units?
Thanks in advance for the help and comments!

I like the sound of this hunt. It's in my future for sure.

I'd be bringing a LRH rig *plus* another hard-shooting, fast big-bore personal protection rifle just for the bears

Just be sure to file down the sights a little bit on said rig.

Re: Wyoming Elk Hunting Thorofare area

I made two hunts in this area this past season and I can tell you bears are there. We were approached by a bear on my first hunt where the guide had to take measures in chasing the bear off.

The second hunt, we had one hunter in camp that was mauled by a sow protecting a kill (carcas) and her cubs.

Now with that being said and that reality, it is the most beautiful and remote area to hunt. I was successful with a huge 6 x 6 along with the other 4 hunters scoring the same.

I like this area so much that I have already booked for the same area for 2014.

AS I hunt mostly DIY, by myself I stay well away from the bear units. Wolves don't bother me, big bears do !!!

Re: Wyoming Elk Hunting Thorofare area

I have a 475 Turnbull and a 375 H&H, and a 41 Mag revolver, are these the right tools for the job, 1 rifle, 1 sidearm?

Bear spray should always be your first defense.
