Comanche Wilderness Outfitters
Does anyone have any info on comanche wilderness outfitters. I want to plan a Co mule deer hunt for next year, I have 5 preference points and was thinking about checking into them. Thanks
My experience is limited to a couple of years of Whitetail hunts where I paid a trespass fee.
Scott takes some awesome Muleys each year as well as great elk. As far as I know, he's got a very good reputation.
I'd do it if that's what you're looking for.
Elkhtr. Scott Limmer is on the site from time to time, I'm sure he will see this post. He runs a good outfit.
I know him personally and he is a straight-up guy. I hooked up a good friend with him for an elk hunt this year, so I'll get a first-hand report.
He has some excellent leases for BIG plains muleys. Genesis (a frequent contributor to the whitetail forum) went on a CO plains muley hunt with him a couple of years ago, and despite hunting in 5 days of horrendous weather, wind, sandstorms, etc.. managed to get his buddy in position to miss a shot at a legit 190-class typical
I have never hunted with him, but he has asked me to guide for him a couple of times (for which I didn't have the time), so I might question his judgment in choosing guides! :)
I hunted with him in 2004. The guide I was paired with was a great guy and we had a blast. Scott was very organized and runs a tight ship. If a guided hunt in Eastern CO was on my list, CWO would be my first choice.
Scott is a great guy. I hunted Antelope with CWO in 2000, scored 77, drew a Goat Tag in 2005 that he gave me great intell on the unit took a 9.5 inch goat and drew a Moose tag this year that he offered info on as well (Can't afford a guided hunt this year or I would have hired him and I would get a B&C Bull I am sure). If you want a trophy buck--- hire Scott.
I have not hunted with Scott, but I thought I should tell of my experience with him.
I researched him first for mule deer, and he would be my pick if I were going to use an outfitter.
In 2006 I won the Colorado Moose Raffle tag. I talked to Scott and he was very helpful even after I decided I would be hunting DIY. He actually called my wife, during the hunt, to check and see how I was doing and to let me know that his booked hunter had scored and I could call him if I needed help.
Scott was very helpful with straight up honest perspective when I was sweating having Colo sheep and moose tags in same year. Advised me that for my goals I did not need a moose guide as long as I had plenty of time to hunt, which I did. Gotta appreciate guys who want to help you make the right decision for you vs. a hard sell.
