Colorado Rifle Elk Hunting

Join us at AEI Guide and Outfitter for your Rifle elk hunt in Colorado! Since 1984 AEI Guide and Outfitter has been guiding rifle elk hunters through the Colorado high country for the ultimate encounter with a monster bull elk.

Rifle Hunting and Guide Options

Join AEI Guide and Outfitter for an amazing adventure! We are prepared to hike you deep into wild elk country or to set you up in established stand sites. Our guides will ensure you a first class hunt and we promise to work as hard to give you the best opportunity at success. If you are fortunate to harvest an animal, your guide, along with AEI Guide and Outfitter staff, will field dress and pack your animal out for you. Gunnison offers quality meat processing and taxidermy services to get your trophy ready for travel. 

Fully-Guided Rifle Elk Hunt
Our fully-guided elk hunts gives you the opportunity to hunt one-on-one or one-on-two with an experienced Colorado elk guide. This hunt takes place on nearly 360,000 acres of Gunnison National Forest and the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness. 

Semi-Guided Rifle Elk Hunt
The semi-guided hunt allows you to hunt on established stands and blinds on both private (~2,000 acres) and public lands. This is a stand-hunt only, but we provide transportation to and from stand locations each hunt.

Self-Guided Rifle Elk Hunt
For more experienced hunters, the non-guided hunt is another option. Be prepared to accept the challenge of the unpredictable Rocky Mountain weather and hunt hard from dawn to dusk. We will look over maps with you and point you in the right direciton. This hunt takes place on nearly 360,000 acres of Gunnison National Forest and the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness. 

* All of our hunting options include food, lodging and pack-out services!
