Hunting in Colorado at C Lazy U

C Lazy U Outfitters offers all-inclusive big game hunting trips for elk, mule deer, moose, and pronghorn antelope in Colorado, with archery, muzzle loader and rifle hunts from September through November. Our guided hunting trips are led by experienced guides in a fair-chase environment on predominately private land, with some public land on the property boundaries.

Bring home a prize trophy mule deer, thanks to C Lazy U’s substantial resident herd and the migratory route that bisects the property, which brings in those elusive monster bucks.

From the Horse's Mouth

Dear Paul,

I wanted to write to you and express my gratitude for the great elk hunt and experience I had at the C Lazy U. Your attention to detail, knowledge of the area, elk movements and habits is next to none. Although, I was overwhelmed, at times at the ranch, your down to earth demeanor was much appreciated.

I have hunted elk in five different states on D.I.Y. hunts, drop camps, horseback hunts, ranch hunts in the past 40 years, but my experience at the C Lazy U will always be one that I will remember fondly, because of your friendly manner and great personality.

Also, one of your guides (I forget his name) was great. He helped pack out my elk, helped load it in my truck and packed it in ice. After being a State Game Warden for 30 years, it was a refreshing experience to have someone make sure I filled out my license correctly, attached it to my elk and send me on my way. Please thank him for me.

All in all, it was a great hunt and I am extremely satisfied with everything. If I can ever do anything for you in Northern Wisconsin, please give me a call.

~Bart H.
