Rugged Rack LLC

Image title

Rugged Rack Outfitters was established in 2001 and is a licensed Colorado Guide and Outfitter. We operate on some of the most game-rich private property Western Colorado has to offer. We try harder to ensure that you have a quality hunt with great memories to last a lifetime. We have just the right mixture of experienced guides, hearty home-cooked meals, and comfortable accommodations to make your hunting trip worth every dollar. It's our goal to provide each hunter who books a hunt, with a quality experience.

We specialize primarily in guided hunts but do offer a small number of un-guided hunts as well. Our quality shot opportunity rates are excellent on mule deer and elk every year, (90%+) for rifle deer/elk & archery deer, 70% archery elk. This should continue for years to come with healthy herd numbers and a limited number of hunters taken each year. Our guides are top-notch with a vast knowledge of the game we hunt and the land they inhabit. Our ranches range from 5,000 to 9,000 feet in elevation with a wide variety of terrain consisting of cedar and sage up into oak brush, aspen, and spruce.

We have a limited number of archery, muzzleloader, and rifle landowner mule deer vouchers for sale each year for those unsuccessful in the draw or those with no preference points.

We would be happy to provide a list of references upon request for those who would like to visit with some of our previous clients.

All or part of this operation is conducted on public land under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Services.
