ROUGH CANYON OUTFITTERS offer Elk and Mule Deer hunts in Western Colorado. We also offer hunts in Southeastern Utah in the Limited Entry units in the Manti-LaSal National Forest. We have a variety of hunting options and camps to fit your needs. We go the extra mile to ensure a successful and enjoyable hunt.


We offer guided archery and rifle hunts for elk, moose, and mule deer in the backcountry of unit 421. These hunts are on public land, via special use permit, in the Grand Mesa National Forest. Our base camp is at 9500ft and is remote but still accessible via SXS and ATV . Our tent camp accommodations are very comfortable and camp food is top notch.  We have an extensive knowledge of the area that translates into successful hunts. 

We also offer rifle mule deer hunts in units 72/73 in an area known for amazing mule deer quality. These hunts will be on 2500+ acres of private property and we will target 150" to 170" deer with 180"+ possible. These hunts are low pressure with a very high success rate. This is a non-physically demanding hunt. We can offer accommodations or clients can stay in town and just hunt with us.

We also offer guided and DIY hunts in unit 071. We have a DIY camp with private property that is a drive to cabin camp with remote access that is surrounded by non-motorized National Forest.  We also offer pack in trips to the Lizard Head Wilderness area. This is the perfect area for the DIY hunters who want more out of their hunt. We also offer guided hunts near Rico, CO. This unit went draw for archery a few years ago and can still be drawn with zero points but it has limited the pressure and increased elk numbers.

Our Utah hunts are for Bull Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear and Mountain Lions in the San Juan, La Sal, and Central Mtns, Manti units. Most of these hunts take several years to draw and the right crew to make your dreams come true.
