Overall Impression: A Wonderful Experience

After much research, reference checking, etc., I settled on Ute Creek Outfitters and the Rio Costilla Park Ranch as perhaps the best opportunity within my means for me to harvest a trophy 6 X 6 Elk. I sure was not disappointed. Not only is the ranch well managed for elk, but the people (outfitters, guides, community of Costilla, NM) are extremely friendly and courteous making you feel most welcome and at home. Add this to their experience and familiarity with the 82,000 acre ranch, and you've got a winner. They will give you the opportunity, the rest is up to you. The accomodations were good and convenient to the ranch. The food was too good and too plentiful. For those who have not been to the mountains in the west, the views are breathtaking. There is no way you can take a picture of this and capture what you are feeling and experiencing as you stand there in awe. With a good network of trail roads throughout the ranch, Ute Creek Outfitters can accomodate many physically challenged hunters and help them with reasonable opportunities for success. If I sound biased, I am because I truly had a wonderful experience, bagged perhaps my 6 X 6 elk of a lifetime and met some wonderful people whom I sincerely hope to see again. Great place, great hunt, great people. You can't go wrong.
