Our drop camps are a DIY style hunt for the self-sufficient hunter. Hunters who are successful in this style of hunt put in work before they arrive & have a game plan for their hunt.
We will send you in the right direction and leave you with tips and techniques on how to be successful. We will provide lodging accommodations in the form of an outfitter tent easily accessible by vehicle. We do not offer any pack-in camps at this time.
Our drop camps are fully equipped with the basic living essentials. Our camps are fully equipped with cooking supplies, a wood stove, propane, lighting, water, shower, cots for sleeping, chairs, tables, and we'll make sure you don't run out of firewood!
You are responsible for your own food, coolers, bedroll, hunting equipment/gear, transportation, and getting your game out.
Disclosure - we do not guarantee we can help get your game out. It is crucial that you get the hide off of your animal as quickly as possible, if not you take the chance of your meat spoiling.
We have 2 drop camp options available 1 located high on the mountain and 1 located in the high desert. We will place you according to the weather. A 4x4 is good but it is best if you have a UTV or ATV to bring for these hunts.
