"I wanted to thank you and your wranglers again for providing us with  an excellent hunting experience. You provided a hunting opportunity  and rocky mountain adventure that positioned my hunting party superbly  within the heart of elk country. Your accommodations and amenities  provided for a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere after a long  day of hunting. A great time with great memories were made with Peak  to Creek Outfitters. We all look forward to a return trip in the  future for another successful and memorable hunt with you folks.

Best wishes for continued success and thanks again for everything!"

Elk Hunting in Colorado"I had a great hunt this past fall with Peak to Creek. I want to thank Gene, and his awesome wranglers-Joe and Conner for the best drop camp I have ever had. The best tent,cots, wood stove, cooking essentials I have ever seen on my past 5 drops with other outfitters. Lots of precut fire wood, great water and no shortage of that, great easy horses, riding instructions from the wranglers, prompt check ins. A great camp and in nice elk country. Did I mention a 6-5 bull on day 2 of my hunt! As I was skinning and taking care of it at 7pm-I thought I should tell them I had a bull down-1 mile from my camp. I was prepared to stay all night and take care of it, but the wranglers dropped what they were doing to ride in the middle of the night to help me. That's unheard of...thanks is all I can say and I will see you again this coming fall...counting the days! "

"Gene, Robert, and Lynn Lee were amazing guides and set us up with a wonderful camp to gather great memories and an amazing hunt of a lifetime! Scenery of the rocky mountains was breathtaking from dusk to dawn just off the beaten path from camp. Elk bugles echoed through the mountains and every member of my hunt came out with a filled tag. I recommend Peak to Creak outfitters to any hunter looking to take there first elk or keep their elk hunting tradition alive. Thank you Gene, Robert, and Lynn Lee once again!"

"I want to thank the outfitter Gene, and wranglers Cowboy Joe + Conner for their commitment and dedication to providing their clients with a very memorable and satisfying hunting adventure in the Rocky Mountains of Southern Colorado. These guys work hard to make sure that you have everything you need in the back country! If you want to get away from the day to day grind of everyday life, then Peak To Creek Outfitters can take you into the mountains on horseback to a little piece of heaven where you can hunt with family/friends + make memories that will last a lifetime. Our group truly had a great experience from start to finish. We look forward to getting back out there as soon as we can! Take it all in because time flies when you're having this much fun!"
