2015 Colorado Elk Hunt

April 21, 2016

In October of 2016 I was able to help great friend and client Dr. Carroll Walker harvest a great non-typical bull on public land in northwestern Colorado. Check out the pictures and his testimonial!


“I’m glad that I made a connection with Zach for this 2015 elk hunt. He had all the equipment needed for a successful hunt. Before opening day glassing and scouting was essential to locate several mature bulls. On the day before the season opened several hunters moved into the area that we planned on hunting. We decided to hike further up the mountain in the dark to get a head start. We listened to elk bugling through the night. Two hours before sunrise we moved further up the mountain.

We crawled about 50 yards to get in position. Then we had to wait for legal hunting light. Zach told me that there was big non-typical that I needed to shoot. I could not believe that my hunt was going to be over in the first 10 minutes of the first

day. I have been on a lot of guided hunts and Zach is at the top of my list for preparation, hard work and success.” – Dr. Carroll Walker

My Bio

Zach Knowles is a professional outfitter and guide as well as doing contract camera work for an outdoor television show in some of the most extreme destinations anywhere in the world. He thrives in the harsh places and isn't afraid to take on any challenge in any terrain. Zach’s family has been in the hunting and outfitting business since he was a small child and he spent a lot of his young years in Saskatchewan where his father outfitted 70+ deer and bear hunts a year. At 12 years old Zach harvested an elk, mule deer, and antelope on a trip to Wyoming and it was then that his love of the mountains and western hunting was born. Since then he has gone on to guide and harvest many more animals from Alaska to Mexico, to the Middle East. He owns and operates Xtreme Outfitters, running 60+ whitetail, mule deer, mountain lion, and sheep hunts a year. When he’s not guiding or hunting for himself, you'll find him in the team roping arena or at the ranch taking care of his commercial cow herd.
