Would Recommend: Yes! and have!

Overall Impression: Impressive operation

I hunted with Lee the first morning and just at day break out came a nice 6x6 bull with his harem of 15 cows and some smaller bulls. The woods were singing with bugles from every corner of the meadow. To make a long story short, upon being winded, we ran like hell to an area Lee though the bull wold try to make an escape. Low and behold, Lee was right! I harvest a good 6x6 bull at 75 yards. He later scored 334 B & C. First morning of the hunt and I struck pay dirt. My complete story with pictures will be published in the Big Game Adventures Magazine this January. I would and have recommended this hunt. You need to book early as I belive they have the first two rifle hunts book well in advance. I'll be hunting with Lee and Baba again in 2004. My brother make another treip (his third) this 2002 season and harvested a nice 6x6 as well. They have an excellent operation and the Rio Costilla Park has done an excellent job of trophy management for elk and mule deer.
