"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

"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

Trophy Bull Elk

Colorado Trophy Elk $8500

Lone Star Outfitters offers over 50 years experience in hunting these big game animals and has focused on a prime area in southern Colorado noted for the high quality genetics and prime habitat. Owner, Walt Isenhour, has over 30 years experience pursuing trophy bull elk and has identified the area just north of the Vermejo Park and Hill Ranch as a key area for harvesting bulls of the highest quality. Our hunters have taken 46 bulls scoring over 320 since 2004 with the largest bull, a massive 7 x 7 scoring 366, topping the list. We encourage our hunters to pass on any bull scoring less than 320. Please visit our Photo Gallery for the excitement. Unit 851 is primarily private land with game management plans in place that insure the future of these trophy animals.

Lone Star Outfitters offers private ranch hunts in the heart of trophy elk country. We provide our hunters with fair chase hunts for trophy, monster bull elk. The famed Vermejo Park and Hill ranches are just 6.5 miles south and southwest of our ranch in Colorado. These surrounding private ranches now offer over 1,000,000 acres of prime trophy elk habitat and an elk herd of proven genetics. Our goal is to provide reasonable priced hunts for these proven trophy, quality bulls.
