Colorado Elk & Mule Deer Hunting Outfitters

OutWest Guides is a hunting outfitter specializing in guiding trophy mule deer hunting and elk hunting in Colorado. We offer fully guided elk and mule deer hunts, drop camps, and semi-guided hunts.

Wilderness hunting

Our elk and mule deer hunts are fair chase hunts in a wilderness setting. We outfit in the rugged Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness area surrounding Marble, Colorado, in the southern part of Game Management Unit 43. Our wilderness camps are accessed only by foot or by horseback. There is no ATV access to any of our camps. Our camps are stout wall tents with wood stoves and cook stoves, cots, floors, and as comfortable as we can make it when everything is packed in on horseback.

Trophy mule deer hunting

Our wilderness mule deer hunts offer an excellent chance at a 28” trophy buck scoring in the 180 class or better. We scout the high-country bucks and know where to find the big boys. Those lucky hunters who draw a Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness tag for Unit 43 should give us a call. Another terrific hunt is a wilderness muzzleloader hunt for mule deer. The licenses are under-subscribed and you’ll see lots of big mule deer! Our wilderness hunts are challenging, physical hunts in a gorgeous setting. We suggest our high-country hunts for hard-core hunters who are in good physical condition and want to hunt hard for an outstanding trophy mule deer.

Private land mule deer hunts

Don’t forget our Unit 43 ranch lease for third and fourth rifle season bucks! Two hunters only, fully guided only, and chances are excellent of bagging a monster mule deer. This is a walk-in hunt on private land, where the big bucks come down during the rut to find all the does. This is the winter range for all those high-country mule deer bucks. An excellent hunt. This is a great hunt for those who want to glass a bunch of nice bucks every day and have a relatively easy hunt. This is not a physically demanding hunt, and it books quickly. Call now if you're interested!

Colorado's Premium Big Game Outfitters

We are Colorado elk hunting guides. OutWest Guides offers quality wilderness elk hunts from horseback. Chances of connecting with branch-antlered bulls are excellent. We offer drop camps, semi-guided hunts, fully guided wilderness hunts, and comfortable lodge hunts! In recent years we have seen our elk herd grow an increasing number of sizeable bulls, and the numbers of elk in our area are terrific.

Lodge hunts

Some of our hunters really enjoy “roughing it” in a wilderness tent camp. Other hunters like the comforts of home. For those of you who want a hot shower, a home-cooked meal, and watching Monday Night Football on satellite TV, our lodge hunts are for you. The success rate for our hunters on our lodge hunts is about the same as for the guys who choose the wilderness hunts. We keep horses in our corrals in Marble, saddle up in the dark, and we’re on the trail before daylight. For third- and fourth-season hunts, this is a terrific way to find a nice bull. Our hunters who want to put some meat in the freezer have great success at harvesting cow elk on our lodge hunts.

Our hunter intro packet has a wealth of information on our Colorado elk hunts, from license applications and season dates to a list of elk hunting gear, how to care for meat, and much more.
