Frazier Outfitting is privileged to offer outstanding Elk , Moose, and Mule Deer hunting in unit 76 and Big Horn Sheep in sheep unit 33. We offer fully guided and semi guided hunts and we also offer drop camps. We operate during archery, muzzleloader, early rifle, 1st rifle and 2nd rifle seasons. Unit 76 is considered to be one of Colorado’s best units, it is famous for the quantity and quality of it animals but also for its rugged and remote beauty of its scenic high country. It encompasses some of the highest altitude elk hunts in the country. Our guides know this country and bring a lifetime of experience hunting. We offer a true fair chase hunt, focusing on the experience of the hunt . Unit 76 is a long wait to draw and is considered the hunt of a lifetime, so you have waited this long for this tag, why not do it right and hunt with the best ….. Frazier Outfitting.
At Frazier Outfitting we have multiple camp locations and even cabin lodging so we are ready for all types of weather conditions and all types of hunting conditions. Our guides are some of the finest anywhere, led by Daylan Nixon who literally grew up on this mountain and started working with the hunters at a young age and started guiding as soon as he was old enough. The rest of the guides are hand selected for their knowledge, love of the area, hunting expertise and deep respect for the animals they hunt. The fact that unit 76 tags are so limited greatly reduces the number of hunters which combined with the size of the region means lots of land with very limited hunting pressure and fantastic elk counts. Although we cannot promise absolute success we do have over 75% “opportunity” rate where our guided hunters had at least a shot at a harvest eligible animal, we do however guarantee the best hunting experience we can provide and we strive to make it a memory that you will cherish your entire life.
The Frazier Outfitting base camps are about 11,000 feet elevation and have a canvas cook tent with wood burning stove, dining area and recreational area. We then have 6 person nylon Dome tents which are plenty big enough for 2 hunters and their gear each comes with cots and deluxe air mattresses. Camp is situated in a remote, scenic, high mountain valley located about a 2 1/2 hour horseback ride from the trailhead. This brings us closer to the prime hunting areas, which means you can be in a morning shooting position in a matter of minutes from camp. And with our well trained horses at the ready you can access the more remote areas of our hunting grid. We provide 3 full meals with a quick breakfast while heading out of camp before first light, sandwiches and snacks for a midday meal while hunting and a robust, hearty, warm meal for dinner to recharge from a strenuous days hunt.
We offer Drop Camps, Semi Guided and Fully guided trips: many are confused by these terms so here is how we define them:
Drop Camp: The hunters supply all of their gear and food, Frazier provides horseback transportation for gear and hunters into a mutually agreed upon camp location on a preset date. Hunters will need to have a reliable form of satellite communication to let us know of safety status, harvest status and pick up requirements. Frazier will then do game retrieval and camp and hunter pack out as required with 24 to 36 hour notice as resources are available.
Semi Guided: Frazier will supply all of the gear, food and a cook/camp manger. Hunters will only need to supply sleeping bag, pillow, hunting gear and personal effects. Frazier will provide the hunters with horse transportation into and out of one of our base camps. Hunters will hunt alone and on foot daily from our base camp. Game retrieval for fully field dressed animals from a horse accessible location is part of the service.
Fully guided is the same as semi except you will hunt with an experienced Frazier guide from Horseback every day. In addition the Frazier guides will prepare your harvested animal for travel back to your vehicle.
All associates are CPR and emergency preparedness trained; in addition we have satellite communication in camp for whatever emergencies may arise.
