"This was my first big hunt out west so being from the east coast, I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. The hunting was spectacular, the scenery was amazing, but the only thing that I tried to prepare for but couldn't was the altitude difference but after two days you get used to it. Adam was my guide and he was great! He has obviously put in a lot of what I call "sweat equity" in hiking and knowing where the elk are and when they are there. The lodge was fantastic. We had comfortable beds to sleep in, hot showers, and the food was excellent! I got a great bull the last day of the hunt that I ironically passed on a few days earlier but boy was it worth it! All in all, I had an excellent experience and would highly recommend Dark Timber Outfitters to anyone who is looking for a great elk hunt!"
