Premier Colorado Hunting

   Welcome to Snake River Outfitters (SRO), home to First Class Hunts on First Class Ranches.  We are located northwest of Steamboat Springs, Colorado and are proud to provide only the finest hunting ranches that this area has to offer.

   All of the ranches within our organization have met a certain criteria. We only accept ranches that can provide you "the client", with a private, first class, fair chase, enjoyable hunting experience. While harvest is imperative, we feel that the quality of the hunt should also be of great magnitude.

   Our ranches consist of approximately 75,000 deeded acres of private hunting with complete control of the borders to insure no outside interference, thus allowing our clientele an enjoyable, relaxing outdoor experience.

   Due to our commitment to wildlife management and complete control of these borders, we have an amazing number of animals. Over the last 17 years, SRO has achieved a remarkable harvest percentage of 94.8% on branch antlered bull elk. Through this site we have attempted to give you an idea of the overall size range of these bulls. If what you're looking for is a fair chase hunt where game is plentiful, the hunt is relaxing and you are almost assured of harvesting a bull, then these ranches are for you.

   In addition to the base elk hunt, SRO also offers hunts for mule deer and antelope. This gives you the opportunity to harvest two or three animals on one hunt. In the past 7 years, we have had a 90% success rate with all deer hunters. Please see side bar for more information and pictures on our exceptional deer hunting. For a sneak preview we will tell you we harvest only mature Mule Deer and for many years our ranches have produced some of the largest bucks taken in Northwest Colorado.

   All game care in the field will be provided by Snake River Outfitters. At the hunters request we will transport your carcass to the local meat processor. All processing, taxidermy and shipping charges are the responsibility of the hunter. All hunts will be run on a harvest or wound basis. The wounding of any animal shall result in the completion of the hunt for that species.

   Our ranches are equipped with housing and facilities that provide hot running water, electricity, beds and most modern conveniences.  Our cooks prepare and serve meals daily that are some of the finest western meals available. We feel that after a day of hunting, a hot shower and a fine meal adds to the enjoyment of any hunting trip. The only equipment, you the hunter, must provide is your rifle, ammunition, sleeping bag and clothing.

   Snake River Outfitters feels fortunate to manage such productive ranches. We strive to provide our clients with a successful, enjoyable hunt that you will always remember.
