Welcome to Timber to Table Guide Service in western Colorado. We aren’t your typical hunting outfitter. As our name implies, we are focused on helping you put wild, healthy and delicious meat on your table.

Elk is about as good as it gets in terms of meat. 

One of our goals during your guided hunt in the West Elk Mountains of western Colorado is to educate you on how to process your own animal so in the future you’ll have the skills to bring whatever game you’re pursuing from the timber to your own table.

As much as we love food though, the hunt is equally revered. 

We are passionate about teaching respect for the animals, taking care of the meat they provide us, understanding the importance of our public lands and remembering to have a lot of fun while keeping an eye towards adventure. We are excited to offer a series of fantastic guided elk and deer hunt packages. We work especially hard to get youth and women hunting for the first time, and can accommodate any type of hunter and will work hard to make sure we give you a memorable and empowering experience.

“This was my trip out west for elk after years of hunting Whitetail in the Midwest, and thanks to Adam and Ana I had an incredible experience. They are both excellent teachers and I learned a great deal in my time with them. Adam is a great guide and thanks to him I was able to successfully get my first elk on the second day of my hunt after sneaking along the river following the herd. He answered all of my questions leading up to and after I took my elk and was a pleasure to hunt with. I was also able to process my elk with Ana and Adam. Ana is awesome at butchering the meat and I learned a number of new ways to cut meat from the bone that I look forward to using in the future. Now I have a freezer full of some of the best meat in the world and new knowledge that I can take with me into the future.”

It seems that for every good use that exists for drones there is an equally bad use.  Consider the usefulness of drones with regards to wildlife management in the form of collecting new data on antelope or mule deer migrations.  The agricultural industry can...
