It doesn't get any better than a successful trophy Elk hunt and that is exactly what Call of the Wild Outfitting LLC has been providing for its clients since 1997. We strive to provide an outstanding value for our hunters and our 85%+ success rate on 300+ point Wild Fair Chase Bulls has put a lot of smiles on a lot of our hunter's faces. Whether your quest involves harvesting a trophy elk, deer, bear, turkey or a little trout fishing you need look no farther than the O'Neill Ranches.

I know it sounds amazing, but our clients have harvested over 250 wild bull elk scoring over 300” since 1997 with 40-50 of those bulls breaking the 350”mark. Bulls measuring over 350” and even 370” are hunted on the ranch every year with the average bull taken over the last 20 years scoring between 320 – 330” Boone and Crockett Points. Three bulls over the 350” mark were harvested during the 2017 rifle and archery seasons. (See the photos in the Hall of Fame Photo Gallery)

Our 8585 acre private ranch is in Game Management Unit 851 and is located about 30 minutes west of Trinidad Colorado, in the beautiful Sangre De Cristo Mountain Foothills. Our "end of the road" property, with no public access, joins Ted Turner's famous 586,000 acre Vermejo Park Ranch for 4 miles along our southern border. We also share a 3 mile border with the Hill Ranch, one of Colorado's premier Ranching for Wildlife properties, that last year required 25 preference points to draw a license.

There is no grand secret to our success. We simply manage the resource properly by providing the best food, shelter and water that we and Mother Nature can provide. That coupled with outstanding guides and a strict limitation on the number of hunters each year provides the optimal conditions that allows us to harvest the type of trophy animals that our clients have come to expect.

If you are seeking a truly exceptional hunting experience then contact me at Call of the Wild Outfitting. I will be glad to supply references and will be happy to discuss your hunting plans with you. Should you decide to hunt with us you will become part of a select group of hunters that have come to trust us to provide them with a top notch trophy hunting adventure.
