Guide Information

Thank you for your interest in guiding for OMM! We’re doing five hunts in serving 33 young hunters. Here’s the essential info:

HUNT DATES/LENGTH/DAILY OPERATIONS:  All hunts are over weekends, beginning on Friday at noon and ending Monday at noon. You must be there at noon Friday, but we understand if you have to work Monday. You can leave late Sunday night.

HUNT 1 (Pronghorn): Oct 18-21

HUNT 2 (Cow Elk): Jan 3-6

HUNT 3 (Cow Elk): Jan 10-13

HUNT 4 (Cow Elk): Jan 17-20

HUNT 5 (Cow Elk): Jan 24-27

FRIDAY: Arrival, camp setup, range operations, hunt class for youth/mentors, and Campfire Talk 1 (more info below).

SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Hunt hard all day with Campfire Talks 2 and 3 at night.

MONDAY: Recovery operations and depart NLT noon.

LOCATION/HUNTING STYLE: All hunts occur on 80,00 acres of private land leased exclusively by Tri-State Outfitters in the Peyton, Colorado area (approximately 20 miles NE of Colorado Springs). This is an incredible property: last year 19 of the 21 young hunters harvested an animal. We saw approximately 100 pronghorn per day and elk in the hundreds – that’s not an exaggeration.

BASECAMP: We’ll basecamp out of Tri-State’s Lodge in Peyton. Everyone will sleep in a heated area with cots provided. We’ll have use of a modern bathroom, a heated area to eat, and a beautiful room in the Lodge for our Campfire Talks.

HUNT TEAM ORGANIZATION: As a guide, you’ll have one youth/mentor team assigned to you. Almost every youth is new to hunting, along with the mentors. You’ll not just be a guide–you’ll be teaching them how to big game hunt.

GEAR TO BRING/VEHICLES/SKINNING SHED: We ask you to bring a rangefinder, binoculars, and field dressing gear. We can lend you these items if you don’t have them. You must bring your own vehicle, as you’ll be hunting from it. A 2WD vehicle is fine for the October Hunt but 4WD is required for the January Hunts. We’ll have use of a professional skinning shed with power winches and a walk-in cooler.

REIMBURSEMENT: We’ll reimburse your gas costs to and from your house up to $400, as well as whatever gas you use while on the hunt.

BOOK REQUIREMENT: Our Campfire Talks are discussions based on the book, “Wild At Heart” by John Eldredge. EVERYONE on the hunt participates in these discussions–as such, you’re required to read/listen to it as well.

CAMPFIRE TALKS: Each night we conduct Campfire Talks to help the young men begin to answer 4 questions:

1. What does it mean to be a man?

2. How do I become one?

3. What does a woman need in a Godly man?

4. How do I become truly alive?

VALUES: OMM’s an unabashedly Christian ministry with conservative Christian values. We believe the Bible is the literal Word of God and is the indisputable guide in how to live one’s life. Additionally, below are OMM’s Core Beliefs. We respectfully ask you to only apply if your values and beliefs align with ours. We believe:

* That boys need a guide in the journey to manhood

* Masculinity is bestowed by a man or a group of men

* While men and women should be valued equally, God made them differently. Men and women have distinct, God-ordained roles.
