As soon as you have purchased the hunt, we recommend that you purchase your hunting license either online or by mail from the Colorado Division of Wildlife at www.wildlife.state.co.us.  You can still purchase a license over the counter for 2nd and 3rd seasons when you arrive in Colorado.  We encourage everyone to take time to prepare physically for the hunt.  It will allow you to cover more territory (we have access to over 56.000 acres) and increase your chances of success.

For your travel plans, we recommend you reach Yampa a day before your pack in date.  We recommend lodging at Van Camp Cabins in Yampa, you must make reservations in advance.  The phone number is (970) 638-4254.  Details are available at http://www.coloradovacation.com/cabins/vancamp/index.html.   Yampa had several restaurants and you are only 30 miles south of Steamboat Springs.  If you plan to fly we can arrange for you to be picked up at the Yampa Valley Airport in Hayden, Colorado.

On your pack in day, you will be met in Yampa and will follow us by vehicle to the trail that leads to camp (elevation 10,000 ft.).  Your gear will be packed and transported by mule and you ride depending on trail conditions, you may walk downhill about one mile to camp (elevation 8,700 ft.).  For your equipment, we recommend Thinsulate and Gortex for cold weather hunting.  It is not uncommon for snow during the rifle seasons so please prepare for it.  For the mules sake, keep your gear to a maximum of 65 pounds and have your gear in one or two duffel bags.  When packing your gear, make sure that all your items that are breakable are packed with something around them (socks, coat etc.).

We look forward to seeing you this fall and we will do everything to make sure that you have a memorable hunt.
