Client Testimonials

2019 Mike C. ElkRuss, 

Myself, Mike Cigich and Marty Moyer would like to thank you for an awesome experience. We just got home after spending 1st rifle in your swamp creek camp. Mike got a bull, Marty had an opportunity and I had a great time filled with memories.

I also wanted to tell you about your guides. Devin made great decisions during the week that lead to Mike harvesting his bull and he is a horse when it comes to hauling out elk quarters. That brings me to double J. He is a man among men. I can’t say enough good things about him. Is there any way you could create a yearly award ,in excellence, for your employees? I bet you’d call it the “Johnston” like the “Heisman.” However, it wouldn’t be fair because he would win it every year.  Hopefully I have a son soon so I can name him Jason.

Thanks again for the experience!

"I had a great time fishing at Colorado Outfitters last summer! We did lake fishing the first day where I was catching cutthroats in the 14-16 inch range and the next day we fished some fast action, small river water catching brookies in the 10-12 inch range on dry flies! While I had fished with my guide, Bob Terwilliger before in his previous guiding job, this was my first time here. Needless to say, I'll be back as fishing, scenery and horses were great!"

I had the good fortune to choose Outfitters as the professional guide service for my Colorado Moose hunt. This team of men was recommended to me by a friend that owns a cabin in the area and has knowledge of all things related to hunting.  The choice of COO was perfect. These outfitters were prepared. They had done a lot of scouting for moose ahead of my arrival so when I got there we were ready to get in the field and hunt.

We were up at 4:30am every morning so we could be in the woods well ahead of first light and we hunted until ½ hour after sunset each day.  We hunted hard and the guide was always aware of every movement and sound that could help us succeed.

We saw bull and cow moose, buck and doe deer and bull and cow elk. My guide, Russ Lambert was always first to see game and always had a strategy to approach the situation we encountered.  Russ went the extra mile to make sure I was completely satisfied each day with our progress and the evolution of our hunt.

The team at COO is knowledgeable, hard working, friendly and 100% committed to the success of their clients.  The food was excellent and plentiful, the accommodations comfortable.

Russ saw my cow the late afternoon of the second day of the hunt. I was able to fell the cow and Russ had her skinned and gutted and ready for transport within an hour.

I can recommend Colorado Outfitters with the highest confidence.  I am 63 and have hunted for 48 years. I know excellence in the field and these folks are the very best guide service one could choose for their future hunt.

Thanks to you and Colorado Outfitters for creating a special Father-Son horse pack trip in to the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness.  Your guide, Trent, was a true professional, especially taking care of our safety and ensuring that my son and I had a memorable experience.  The trip had great food, great views, great fishing, and great horses.  An all around great adventure high in the Rocky Mountains.  Thank you again.  I will be a return client.
