Tom White "Being led around by one of Jim's guides, Dave Bunker, I found myself in elk herds every day of the hunt with more than half a dozen opportunities to drop a bull. But I told Dave I'm holding out for a big 6x6. Instead, on the morning of the fifth day and by God's good grace, I dropped this big toad. So hands down, this was the most exciting and exhausting hunt I've ever been on ... Thanks guys!" ... Tom White, Sculptor ... www.tomwhitestudio.com

Ralph's 2010 6x6 Bull

If you are interested in a quality late season elk hunt, I have found the place to go! Loco Mountain Outfitters, Cotopaxi, Colorado. Not just good but great food, sleeping accomodations, hot showers, and guides who can help you with your hunting skills to that elk of a life time. That thin air can be tough at times. But when that elk steps out there you forget about any problems you have had to that point. Mine was a big one (6X6) and the guide had to quarter it to get it out, but it was all worth it. Our group of six got five elk (three six by six or better) and we had a heck of a time. Save your money, get in shape and give them a call!!!

Jim,

Well, ANOTHER!! hunt with Loco and I brought something home AGAIN!!!! I'm trying to sum up my experience this year so here goes......... 70 degree weather one day, then 3 days later I'm in 10 inches of snow...Crazy? I thought I had hit and lost a big mule deer. Crazy? With the help of prayer and one of your guides,Doug, I found my trophy. Crazy? No. With the help of guide Dave, I had a trophy elk called up to within 22 yards. Crazy? No. I got to experience God's country and feel His presence? Crazy? No.

You have a bunch of guides who are very skilled and also Crazy. No they are Loco. My trip can only be summed up with one word. Crazy. No, Loco. Loco Mountain Outfitters. Once again I have been able to enjoy a Co. hunting trip, do the things I wanted to do, have great food and a place to stay, and be with and meet people who love the outdoors. I'm fixing to go show off my horns from Loco Mountain to my buddies. See ya!!!!!!!!!

Joe's Mountain Lion from his 2008 Loco Mountain Outfitter's hunt with Roger Rupp

Jim,

Here are some pictures of the lion I killed last January. The pictures were taken in my trophy room. I built that ledge several years ago specifically for this lion whenever I got it. Thanks to Loco Mountain outfitters I now have the lion I have hoped for since I was a boy.

Now I need a nice elk. I hope to realize that dream next October when I once again will be hunting with Loco Mountain outfitters in Colorado.

Hey Jim...

Just a quick note to thank you for a fantastic hunt this past season!!  Everything was top-notch again this year, and Casey and I are looking forward to our next hunt with LMO.  (Make sure you rehire those great cooks!!!!)

We really got into the animals this year which shows how well your guides know the hunt territory.  I never saw so many quality bulls!  Too bad I could only get a running shot at the "monster" on Gallister, but I'm quite satisfied with the nice 5x5 I got at Dick's Peak.

Casey almost got a shot at his buddy, so we both had plenty of exciting times.  Add in our nice Mulies, and it doesn't get any better than that!!  

Say hi to Dave, Joel, Mike, and the "Unit" for us.  See you in this fall!!

Regards,

Curt F.

Wow, what can I say? Thanks for the memories. It's a great tribute to you and your guides. When a guy who has never hunted big game before can come down to your ranch with a bow and can take down a big 6x6 bull elk. I don't think I could've scripted it any better.
I would also like to thank you for your hospitality I really felt like it was my ranch for the 5 days of my hunt. Thanks.

Jim,

I wanted to let you now how much that we enjoyed our trip with all of you.  I am just a regular working guy so when I go on a hunting trip I need to know that my money is well spent.  My trip with you was just that.

I was very happy with your accommodations.  We were fed well, we had warm comfortable beds and good people to have conversations with.  We were treated as we had known everyone for a long time.

The guides that we dealt with Dave, Doug and Mark were great.  They made sure they knew what each person was wanting out of their trip and planned every night just what was going to happen for each of us the next day.  They never hesitated to get any of us where we needed to have the chance at the game we wanted.  

The old saying with any big game hunting (Go where no one else wants to and you will find the animals) they took us there.  On top of mountains that most people only dream about or see pictures of.

Hello Jim

Just wanted to say hello and thank you for a GREAT TRIP. We had a blast.

The hunting was fantastic, the scenery was spectacular and the company was excellent. The folks from JERSEY were a lot of fun and your crew of guides were OUTSTANDING.  I am very impressed at how hard your guides work for the hunters, they really do make things happen. A special thank you to MIKE and DOUG for tracking my buck as far as they did.  My first elk was really fun, just before dark as the snow was starting to fall at 9000 ft.  What a memory. Thank you to Mike and Doug and Terry and Pete, who were fellow hunters who helped recover my elk. It was tough going to get him back to the truck.

My buck was a real team effort, with You, Doug, Jeremy, Pete and Terry all pitching in right at sun down on the LAST DAY of the hunt!!! That was really exciting. Hello and THANK YOU to GEORGE, what a character. Supper time and Story time at the lodge was priceless, absolutely worth every penny. The hunting and scenery were just a bonus. DAVE, JOEL and BLUE were a riot. Ya'll give a whole new meaning to "HUNT LIKE YOU MEAN IT."

KAREN had a lot of fun helping around the lodge and hauling hunters and  guides.  Thanks for letting her tag along. She is ready to go back.

Hello to all the guys in JERSEY, Hope every body is doing good. It sure was fun.  

JIM, I will recommend you to anybody. Thanks again for a great trip. Hope to see you next year.  Happy Holidays.

Sincerely

JEFF and KAREN H., Hempstead, Texas

Jim,

I wanted to take a minute to express my pleasure with the Elk hunt that we just completed with Loco Mountain Outfitters.  Our accommodations were fine, the food was great and the Guide, Dave was even better.  He has probably told you how he worked his tail off to help me get my elk at last light on the final day.  He did work hard and we never gave up!  We saw a lot of elk and a lot of nice country and met some wonderful people. 

Thank you for coordinating the effort.  I made a CD of the pictures that I took, and made some notes on them to preserve my memory and I am sending you a copy.

Once again, thanks for an enjoyable hunt and be sure and give Dave a big Attaboy.

Sincerely,

Dick
