For the second year in a row, my wife and I drove cross-country to hunt elk and mule deer with Donna, Jake and the crew at UCO. This year, I was teamed up with guide Brian Smith and we had a great time putting in the work and reaping the rewards! Had a full day after tagging my elk to... More

Had a ton of fun. Hiking was hard but was worth it to get to see the landscape. Getting the mule deer on the last day was a definite bonus. Justin and Aaron were great and good for a lot of laughs. Hope to be able to come back some day.

The room we had in the lodge was very comfortable and provided plenty of space for clothes and gear. All the food was fantastic! Our guide worked hard and was a big... More

There can be no greater compliment of service, than sharing stories with my friends and planning for a return trip to Upper Canyon Outfitters. Choosing between fishing, back country horse trips, and / or fall hunting are all options. The grandeur of the country, the sincerity and generosity of the people, and the resulting experiences make this a special place.... More

Good but could have been much better. The kitchen appliances need to be updated. We thought we would be hunting private land and not public. It would have been better if we could have killed at least one whitetail on the private land.

We had a great Elk & Mule Deer hunt!!! Good food and excellent hospitality. Would highly recommend UCO to any sportsman. Guides were very accommodating and worked very hard to achieve success. Rooms were very very nice! No complaints what so ever!! We love the UCO family. Thanks for providing us with a great memory. Sincerely The Shinsky Group

The weather and animals cooperated and were a great compliment to the top notch location, employees and management of UCO. Get in good shape and take a trip to the Ruby River Valley, Snowcrest and Greenhorn Mountains !!!

My wife and I stayed at the Upper Canyon Outfitters for a week in October 2015 for an outdoor adventure. The staff was very professional, the food was great and the hospitality was superb. We were treated like family while we were there and we lacked for nothing. We had a great time!

In July 2013 my wife and I made our first visit to Upper Canyon Outfitters in Alder Montana and our first impression was “This is a First Class Operation”. It is November 2015 and my fourth trip to Upper Canyon, for two weeks of Elk and Deer hunting has come to a close. The Upper Canyon staff and friends have... More
