Ricky Taaffe, 2014

With tears in his eyes after his 2014 Trophy Hunt in Unit 201,
Ricky Taaffe said,"I waited 25 years to draw this tag and I can't say enough
how Colorado Outfitters they made my dream come true!"

Trophy Unit Hunts...GMU's 2 and 201

Colorado Outfitters is one of the few outfitters who hunt some of the most renowned trophy units in the state of Colorado.  For hunters who have spent years accumulating preference points for elk, you don't want to trust that investment to just any outfitter.  We have the track-record of finding, and putting some of the largest elk on the ground in these units.

Trophy elk hunts take place in the Brown's Park area GMU's 2 and 201. These hunts are a 1 on 1 hunt (1 guide to 1 hunter and actually we generally send a couple of guides and also a cameraman to film the experience).  It is a full 5 day hunt and if we don’t kill the bull you want within 5 days, additional days of hunting can be purchased. We are here to make sure this is the hunt of a lifetime and will do everything in our power to get you a chance at the bull of your dream!

For these hunts, you will stay at a private ranch near the hunting area where one of our staff lives and keeps track of the herd year round. Accommodations are first class as are the home cooked meals.

If you would like to discuss our knowledge about these units, and our recommendations for you application, please contact us.  We will also provide references upon request.

I had a great time fishing at Colorado Outfitters last summer! This was my first time here. Needless to say, I'll be back as fishing, scenery and horses were great!
