Western Colorado Outfitters has been providing quality archery, muzzleloader, and rifle hunts in Colorado Since 1976. We offer Elk Hunts, Mule Deer Hunts, Mountain Lion / Cougar hunts and Black Bear hunts on a Permit that is administered by the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forest. Join us for some of the best hunting in Western Colorado!

Whether you are looking for a fully guided Elk Hunt and Mule Deer hunt, or want to do it yourself on a  self guided drop camp or base camp  hunt, we offer a large variety of hunting options. We hunt in Colorado game management unit (GMU)  62. You can also use our base camp as a place to stay for your Trophy Elk Unit 61, or Desert Bighorn hunt in Unit 62. The best way to answer some of your questions is to just give us a call. Please leave a message so I can call you back! A contact page is also available for e-mail correspondence.


2024 & 2025 / We are almost full for rifle seasons at the Base Camp. We have a few drop camp openings.  If you want to hunt the rut consider an Archery hunt, we still have plenty of openings. Our atv drop camps have been popular also.  Check them out on the unguided page.

**If you are planning ahead for early rifle next year call me about getting preference points in March 2024. I still have openings for 1st rifle (draw) in 2025.


Thank you for considering us for your hunting trip to Colorado.

Every day is a gift from God. Good luck in your hunting future!
