Quality Affordable Western Hunts in Northwestern Colorado

Archery and Rifle Hunting Opportunities in Colorado's Best Areas







We specialize in providing quality hunts at very affordable prices!

 All hunts are 2:1 (client to guide). Our hunts take place in GMU 22 and/or GMU 3 in Northwest Colorado close to Meeker and Craig, CO.  This area is home to one of the largest Elk and Mule Deer herds in the U.S.  We hunt remote areas, by 4wd and foot.   


**All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management**


Hunting whitetails and fishing for trout while growing up in the hills of West Virginia instilled in me a lifelong love for the outdoors and appreciation for the beauty of game and fish.  Outdoor living for me has never been a hobby, but, rather, a way of life.  This naturally led to a desire to make my living in the woods and on the stream.


In September 2015, I decided to follow my dream and turn my lifelong passion into a profession as a hunting and fishing guide. I drove cross-country to Whitehall, MT and met Bill DeShaw for the first time when I enrolled in his Professional Hunting Guide Schools.  During an enlightening and successful 10-day guiding course, Bill offered me an internship at his Wyoming Hunting Outfitters operation in Buffalo, WY.  I jumped at the chance and was on my way to making my dream a reality, and turning my passion into my profession.


After sharing a very successful Deer and Antelope season in WY, Bill approached me about joining his guiding operation in CO.  Soon we reached an agreement that would not just allow me the opportunity to operate my own guiding business, but, more importantly, to learn under the mentorship of a 39-year veteran. Bill’s commitment to the continued success of his legacy and life’s work is invaluable to me as a business owner, outfitter, and guide.


We look forward to sharing our passion for the outdoors and a Western Hunting Experience with you soon.

Good Will Policy

It has always been our goal to provide our Clients with a Professional, Traditional Western style hunt. Our Clients will tell you that we will do our absolute best to see that you get a chance to get shooting. Now we all know that there is a lot more to hunting than just filling your tag. The true Western Hunt embodies so much more than just that! 


Even though we offer very successful hunts, sometimes the hunting can even get tough for us! After all, this is true fair chase hunting in very remote areas.  Many variables are beyond our control. And  as everybody knows, there are NO GUARANTEES  IN FAIR CHASE HUNTING. 


That being said, you as a hunter invest quite a bit of money on your hunting adictions! In order to offer you some protection, and maybe make it a bit easier to book your trip with Colorado Outfitted Hunts,  and to prove what kind of a Professional Hunting Company we are, we have adopted a Good Will Policy.  It will consist of the following:


A hunter will be entitled to a 10% Discount off of regular pricing on their next hunt with us if they do not see one legal animal that they hold a tag for. Hunters who qualify for the discount must have finished their hunt. If they passed, missed or wounded an animal, they do not qualify.  


We will always endeavor to provide our Clients with actual Benefits as an incentive to book their hunt with us.


Good Hunting!
