Great Divide Outfitters | Colorado Elk Hunts in the San Juan National Forest

Our goal here at the Great Divide is to do the very best we can to see that your camp and hunt is exactly what we say it is. We will try to make this one of the most memorable trips you’ll ever have, whether you’re stalking a big Colorado bull elk or outmaneuvering an elusive Colorado mule deer.


Our hunting camps are at 8,000 – 9,500 feet and are located near Lemon reservoir bordering the beautiful San Juan National Forest and Mountains, 10 miles Northeast of Durango in southwest Colorado. Our hunts include a variety of terrain: deep canyons, dark timber and open meadows, prime locations for southwest Colorado elk or deer hunting, in Colorado hunting areas 75 / 751.

The kill ratio varies from season to season – trying to predict which season is best is like trying to predict Colorado weather. Although we cannot guarantee a game kill, you will be in great elk country. Whether you are hunting elk or mule deer we want to make your southwest Colorado hunting experience a great one!

The area that you will be hunting is accessed from our private property which makes it much more secluded and without the pressure of a lot of other hunters. This prime elk and mule deer habitat offers each of our hunters an excellent opportunity to harvest a quality animal.

We hope to see you in camp!
