Overall we have just over a 70% success rate:
Opportunity rate is measured by the hunter seeing game and having a chance to harvest. If a hunter does not harvest, it is a result of them passing on a smaller animal or missing a shot.
We provide a one-on-one hunting experience for our guests, however we are also able to accommodate if you would like to hunt with a family member or friend. All our guides are very experienced and work together during the hunting season. Expect to hunt with a variety of our guides over the course of the five-day hunt.
Our guides will pick up each guest from the main ranch compound by vehicle or ATV and travel a short distance to the different hunting areas. Once you get to the hunting area, we use several different tactics including setting up in ground blinds as well as spot and stalk techniques.
For more in-depth information, check out A Typical Day on the Plan Your Trip page.
We recommend that our hunters feel comfortable shooting out to 50 yards with a bow and 300-350 yards with a rifle. When it comes to caliber of rifle, we recommend 270, 300, 7MM with a 130-180 grain bullet.
The C Lazy U Ranch is located just outside of Granby, Colorado. We sit at 8,200 ft of elevation and hunt +/- 1000 ft in Grand County. We are about 90 miles North West of Denver International Airport.
Visit the C Lazy U website's Maps & Directions page for maps of the ranch and detailed information on getting here.
We recommend one local taxidermist who offers a wide range of services. More information is available upon request.
C Lazy U Outfitters can offer multiple processing options for hunters who successfully harvest and animal. Due to the volume of animals being harvested in the area processors are unable to turn them over in a 24-hr. period. You will have 3 options for animal after a successful hunt. It is important to remember that this is an additional cost not included in the hunt package. A general rule of thumb is to expect processing fee of around $500 , and a shipping fee of up to $1,000 based on your location and shipping method.
Shipping cost for meat can add up fast given the speedy delivery needed for perishable products. Here are some options to think about before you arrive:
The ranch offers a variety of other activities, including horseback riding, fly fishing, trap shooting, guided hiking and mountain biking, as well as spa services at the Lazy You Spa.
The C Lazy U Ranch is a year-round guest ranch that accommodates family travel, business retreats and weddings along with the hunting program. Although we may only have three to six hunters on property at one time, expect to see other guests participating in meetings or activities. The ranch promotes a family environment accommodating to all ages and interests. Look to meet some new people during your stay in which we all can share our great hunting stories from the day!
