Elk hunting rifle Colorado
Join us at AEI Guide and Outfitter for your Rifle elk hunt in Colorado! Since 1984 AEI Guide and Outfitter has been guiding rifle elk hunters through the Colorado high country for the ultimate encounter with a monster bull elk.
Rifle Hunting and Guide Options
We are prepared to hike with you deep into wild game habitat or to set you up in established stand sites. Our guides will ensure you a first class hunt. If you are fortunate to harvest an animal, your guide, along with AEI Guide and Outfitter staff, will field dress and pack out your trophy for you. Gunnison offers quality meat processing and taxidermy services to get your trophy ready for travel.
Our fully-guided archery rifle hunts give you the opportunity to hunt one-on-one or one-on-two with an experienced Colorado elk guide. Our guided hunts offer you the best chance at success in the field.
The semi-guided hunt allows you to hunt on established stands on both private and public lands. We have over 40 stand sets composed of raised box blinds, ladder stands and step stands. We hunt over established elk travel corridors and feeding areas.
Non-Guided or Self-Guided
For more experienced hunters, the non-guided hunt is another option. Be prepared to accept the challenge of the unpredictable Rocky Mountain weather and hunt hard from dawn to dusk. With this hunt option, we take care of food, lodging and pack-out services and we will look over maps and point you in the right direction, but you are on your own out in the elk woods.
