Took my first elk hunt out of Ripple Creek lodge this fall. It was a great experience and I highly recommend this outfitter. Of note, if you decide to give it a try, it is a really demanding experience. If you aren't prepared to be on a horse for two hours a day in the dark going up and down a mountain and being at close to 10k feet altitude you're going to have it rough. Be in shape or it will hurt. Any bad reviews are people that just aren't prepared for what this is all about. But the cabins are warm, they have hot showers, and they staff makes sure you're fed and comfortable. It's a bit no frills but everyone is friendly and works hard. Highly recommend this place.
