About the Hunt & Facilities
Hunters can stay at either the main lodge with it's comfortable accomodations or at the horse camp (at about 9500 ft), with it's more rustic appeal. There are 3 guest cabins and a comfortable cabin for meals for sharing tales of the hunt. Each cabin is equipped with two twin beds and propane heating. These cabins come fully equipped with on site staff & chef but still offer the rustic charm that makes this land so beautiful. Large camp fire for relaxing and replaying the events of the days hunt.
