Colorado Outfitters?

Hello Everyone,

I am a new member of this forum and am looking for feedback on Outfitters in Colorado. Myself and 3 other hunters are planning a 2010 second rifle season hunt. The two specific ones we are considering are as follows:

1. Colorado Private Ranches - Units 741,52,444,15 or 26
2. Silver Peaks Outfitters - Units 70,71 or 711

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Colorado Outfitters?

I did a quick search for them through the CDOW website and neither came up on the list of Licensed Outfitters.

Maybe you want to look yourself. http://www.coloradooutfitters.org/

Colorado Outfitters?

Thanks for the reply RaghornHS!

I as well could not find them on the Colorado Outfitters website.

Here is the info off the Silverpeaks website:

Silver Peaks Outfitters is registered with the State of Colorado (#786)
BONDED AND INSURED.
We are authorized under commercial use permit with theUSFS and BLM to utilize
public lands in SW Colorado consisting of about 200,000 acres.

Does this seem like proper credentials?

Licensed Outfitters

The reason you cannot determine if Colorado Private Ranches is a licensed outfitter is because they are not. This business (last time I checked) was run by a fellow named Kaufman in Louisana. They lease ranches and they sublet use for hunting for a trespass fee. This doesn't mean you should or should not hunt with them, it means they are not to the best of my knowledge a licenses CO outfitter.

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) website has a database available to the public. Here you can look up anyone to see if they are in fact a licenses CO outfitter and if so the status of that license. See:

Good hunting
