1) Arrival & Departure
Plan on arriving the day before your hunt starts, after 1 p.m., please. We'll fix you dinner and have an orientation session. If you arrive earlier than the day before your hunt, you will need to make hotel reservations. We can make recommendations if you wish. Departure after your last day is ideally by 9 a.m.
Due to our remote location, we have a lack of current weather information. Therefore, we turn to the Internet to obtain the closest local weather reports. By entering the local zip codes into a weather based web site, (like www.weatherchannel.com), we get a semi-accurate idea of what the upcoming weather might be. Come prepared for any temperature range.
3) Flying In
Guests flying commercially into the area will be met at the Denver airport. There is no charge for pickup and return. If you are flying commercially, please contact your airlines regarding weight limitations and transport of weapons, game and antlers.
4) Licenses (ALL BY DRAWING)
All licenses are by drawing, and must be applied for by the first week of March thru April 6, 2024. Plan early! All hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1949 must have hunter safety cards.
Hunts are strictly limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis after you draw a CO tag. A $500 non-refundable reservation fee is required to reserve a hunt with GPO. After you draw your CO limited tag, contact GPO to reserve your hunt. 50% non-refundable payment with reservations is required, then the final payment is due 30 days before the start of the hunt. Drop camps where GPO is not guiding, 50% non-refundable fee is due at time of reservation and the remaining balance is due 30 days before the drop camp date starts. For limited antelope, bear and whitetail hunts, contact us for availability and pricing.
6) Meat Processing and Shipping
We have a game processor in our area that we can recommend to you. We can arrange to have your wild game taken to the meat processor for you. There is a $60 transport fee for this service. The game processing fee will be arranged with the processor. There is also the additional cost of shipping your meat home. The processo:rs can also help with shipping. Usually, they process the meat, flash freeze it, and then Federal Express it, on dry ice, to your location. The cost depends on the weight of your meat and your shipping zone. Shipping your meat on dry ice through Federal Express can be expensive, for an estimate please call Federal Express at 1-800-463-3339. *Prices are subject to change without notification.
7) Shipping Your Gear, Meat and Antlers
Do NOT use the postal Service. If you would like to ship your gear to our house you may UPS it to yourself at the following address:
292 Rock Rd.
Bailey, CO 80421
Be sure to get insurance and tracking on the shipment.
One of the most frequent questions we get is in regards to tips. Tips are greatly appreciated by your guide. If he has anyone helping him, he will be splitting those tips accordingly. Customarily, tips start at 10 percent and average 15% of the cost of the hunt for your guide.
9) What to Bring
Visit our gear and checklists page. We provide all transportation within the hunting area, meals and accommodations during your hunt. You are responsible for your weapon, ammunition, hunting license, hunter safety card, clothing, personal effects, game processing, and taxidermy.
