Hello Fellow Hunters,

Just a note to say hello and let you know how the hunting experiences have been over the past few seasons for Dave Parri’s Outfitting & Guide Service.

Entering my 26th season, I have learned quite a bit about the outfitting business and have grown to know Unit 18, The Troublesome Basin intimately and feel we are at an all time high with outfitting operations.

In game management units 18 & 181 the Troublesome Creek Drainage, the elk population stands at 4,550 elk with a bull-to-cow estimated ratio of 21-26 bulls for every 100 cows.  1st, 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons are consistently averaging a 50% or better success rate.  Annually we harvest bulls averaging in the 250-300 inch class with occasional 300+ bulls up to 350 inch class.

Deer populations in the Middle Park area units 18, 181, 27, 28, 37, and 371 estimate 16,870 deer with an average of 30-35 bucks to every 100 does.  We readily see bucks in the 20-26 inch class with occasional bucks in the 26-30 inch class, averaging in the 170-200 inch class in size.
