"Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up, as did men of another age, to the challenge of nature. In the hills and on the water the character of a man comes out." Abram T. Collier

Lone Star Outfitters

"There is a passion for hunting something deeply implanted in the human breast." Charles Dickens

Trophy Bull Elk Hunting

"The true trophy hunter is a self-disciplined perfectionist seeking a single animal, the ancient patriarch well past his prime that is often an outcast from his own kind... If successful, he will enshrine the trophy in a place of honor. This is a more noble and fitting end than dying on some lost and lonely ledge where the scavengers will pick his bones, and his magnificent horns will weather away and be lost forever." Elgin Gates

Trophy Mule Deer Hunting

"Growing up, I've enjoyed hunting with my father." Dale Earnhardt

Trophy Pronghorn Antelope Hunting

"Now I see the secret of making the best person, it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth." Walt Whitman

Trophy Black Bear Hunting

"What was big was not the antlers, but the chance. What was full was not the meatpole but the memory of the hunt." Aldo Leopold

Florida Osceola Turkey Hunting

"Take you kids hunting or you will end up hunting for your kids." Ted Nugent

Colorado Merriam's Turkey Hunting

"The great primitive outer world is still unconquered, and there are impulses within the beast of man not yet measured, curbed and devitalized, which are the essential motives of life. Therefore without, without wantonness, and without cruelty, we shall hunt as long as the arm has strength, the eye glistens, and the heart throbs. Lead On!." Saxton Pope

Texas Trophy Whitetail Deer Hunting

"I hunt because I love the entire process: the preparations, the excitement, and sustained suspense of trying to match my woods lore against the finely honed instincts of these creatures. On most days spent in the woods, I come home with an honestly earned feeling that something good has taken place. It makes no difference whether or not I got anything: it has to do with how the day was spent." Fred Bear

Wild Hog Hunting

"I do not hunt for the joy of killing but for the joy of living, and the inexpressible pleasure of mingling my life however briefly, with that of a wild creature that I respect, admire and value." John Madson

Merriam's Turkey

Colorado Spring &
Fall Merriam's Turkey $1950

This area is truly blessed with one of the most productive flocks of Merriam's turkey in southern Colorado. It is quite common to see 50 to 100 turkeys per day while hunting, with many Toms in groups of 5 to 10. These birds are not call shy, due to the lack of hunting pressure on private lands, and make an exciting hunt. Colorado offers both spring and fall turkey seasons and we offer hunts in both seasons.

The Spring Turkey Season opens in mid-April and runs through late May. We are offering 6 hunts this year starting early May so book your preferred week soon for the best times.

The Fall Turkey Season runs from early September until early October. These dates overlay the fall elk and deer archery and muzzle loading seasons and the early fall bear season. For that reason, we only offer fall turkey hunts the last week of September.

All our turkey hunts are for 2 days, usually filling tags on the first day. Meals and lodging are provided in our comfortable cabin camp. Discount room rates can be arranged, in nearby Trinidad Colorado, for the days prior and following the hunt upon request. We provide all transportation while hunting. Additional hunting days can be provided for $500.00 per day should the birds not cooperate.
