*Proof of a hunter education course is required to hunt in Colorado if you were born on or after January 1st 1949. A hunt is considered officially over when your tag is filled or hunt days have expired. Filled hunters are welcome to stay in camp for total number of hunt days. Although Western Colorado Outfitters does not guarantee all guests their game, we feel each individual has a great chance of filling their tags. Our camps are also covered by a radio system for your safety, to be used in emergencies only. All hunts are fair chase in scenic Colorado. Hunts are conducted on the Uncompahgre National Forest.
