Your outfitters are Larry Large and Luke Clayton. When these two seasoned outdoorsmen decided to join forces and offer private land archery elk hunts on an exclusive ranch in Colorado, their ideas of what makes up a good elk hunt were parallel. Both desired to offer hunts where their guests would feel comfortable the moment they arrived in camp. The ranch at Steamboat Springs, where the hunts take place, certainly fills the bill in regards to beautiful scenery, tons of elk and a very comfortable cabin from which to hunt. We have been outfitting hunts on this ranch for the past five years. Larry guided here for many years before L & L Outfitters was formed and we began doing our own hunts. You can rest assured we know the elk patterns well. We book a limited number of hunters each week so there is no overcrowding.
Our camp is situated in a little valley overlooking a meadow where elk and bear are frequently spotted from the cabin. From the porch, via good optics, a great deal of scouting is done on the side of Sleeping Giant Mountain. It’s, common to spot 10 to 30 head of elk bedded down up in the higher elevations and bear up and feeding. During archery season the bear feed all day in preparation of hibernation.

What are your chances of killing an elk?? Through the years, our hunters shot opportunities inside 40 yards have been close to 90 percent but these are wild animals living in their native habitat of rugged mountain country. The only guarantee we or any other honest outfitter can make is that we will do our dead level best to get you within bow range of an elk and, our success rate is very high!! Truly, “Being There” in elk camp and on this beautiful Colorado ranch is a huge part of the hunt.
Colorado law requires that anyone born on or after January 1, 1949, complete an approved hunter education course before applying for or buying a Colorado hunting license.
