La Garita Wilderness is a great choice for your Colorado dream hunt with over-the-counter bow, 2nd and 3rd rifle hunts, as well as great draw odds on 1st rifle, 4th rifle and muzzleloader hunts. This camp loves to hunt high country and do very well on early season hunts in this area. These camps are located at 10-11,000 feet and are near the prime rutting areas these elk inhabit. With large open areas and bugling elk, the hunt method of choice is a mix of spot and stalk on foot and the possibility of some horseback hunting if you desire.
