After a few years of hunting Colorado on our own it was decided that we hire an outfitter and try out a drop camp. In 1992 that was Tom Mainer and Chair Mountain Stables in the Coal Basin area on the outskirts of Redstone, Colorado. All in all we saw elk, we saw deer, heck we saw bear. We packed out, eventually, with 3 bucks and 2 does. The experience stuck with us and nearly every other year since we've climbed up on a horse and gained elevation to our home on the mountain range.
