Customer Testimonials

I just wanted to take a moment to send my appreciation for the hunt I went on during archery season of '14. Your entire setup was first class. From the moment I arrived to the time we packed out camp it was obvious your organization was very experienced in ensuring a good time to the hunters. On top of that, the knowledge you and your team have of the area and the elk allowed me the opportunity to harvest a beautiful bull elk. As it was a semi guided hunt, the confidence you gave me with the one day of having help and showing me the area and how to find elk proved invaluable to my success. I never once felt lost or ill advised the entire trip. As much as the success of the hunt, the atmosphere provided in camp was also second to none. From day one we all felt like family and shared many laughs and stories. The food was great and the convenience of being able to grab food and save my time to hunt truly did make a difference. It was an experience that will not be soon forgotten and I can't wait to get back up there and do it again. I can assure you that if I am traveling to hunt elk, it will be with you and your wonderful family!

"If you just want to walk in the woods for a week with your rifle over your shoulder then go do it. If you want to shoot an elk, call Surface Creek Outfitters, it is as simple as that."

Still enjoy reviewing your web site, pictures are great. Looks like almost every year gets better, congratulations to you and everybody doing their various jobs.  After hunting with you for 30 years, never missing a season, it is hard not being in Camp.  Also want to thank you and the guides for getting me off the mountain the day of my heart attack. I certainly feel without you, the helicopter and the Montrose Hospital, I would not be here now.  You can certainly use me as a reference. Keep up the good hunts, you truly have a respected Outfitting Operation. Still want to get back to thank you in person.



The experience I had hunting with you and your guides were Top Notch, First Class. Coming to Colorado to Elk Hunt 2 years in a row was a great adventure and to harvest my first 5 by 6 Bull Elk made the experience that more exciting. The food was excellent,  hot meals every night and lunch bags provided what more could a hunter ask for ? The tents were furnished with propane heaters made the cold nights comfortable.  I will return for many years to come. Again thanks for a great experience.
