Colorado Mule Deer Outfitter Reviews

They have the birds!

The owners were extremely quick to respond once I reached out to them via Book Your Hunt. Once I arrived, I met up with Bo (owner) and Tanner (guide) and they were extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the turkey patterns. I had two days to hunt and both days, multiple times we had mature birds close. Tanner went above and beyond to try and put me in the best spot possible to harvest a bird. He was super friendly and an expert at calling. Bo called multiple times each day to make sure things were going well, which I appreciated. I was lucky enough to harvest a bird on the last afternoon. The terrain was relatively easy to traverse which was nice. I will definitely be booking with them in the future. Thanks again for a great time! Read review on
