Family owned and operated for over 30 years, Mule Creek Outfitters is the heart of the M Lazy C ranch and offers some of the very best hunting and fishing in Colorado. We believe in fair chase hunting and have a deep admiration and respect for animals we hunt and fish. If you’re looking for a true hunting/fishing experience in some of the most beautiful country Colorado has to offer, you’ve come to the right place!

Mule Creek Outfitters has one of the largest huntable areas available to both resident and non-resident hunters. We have permits for 5 Game Management Units (GMU’s) within the beautiful Pike National Forest (including the coveted Lost Creek Wilderness).

GMU 50 • GMU 58 • GMU 500 • GMU 501 • GMU 581

Whether you draw a limited tag, or you’re hunting Over-the-Counter (OTC), we’ve got you covered for all seasons (rifle, archery, and muzzle loading). We have no “off-the-shelf” hunts, every hunt is different, and every group is unique. It’s our goal to personally tailor your hunt to you and your group. Let us guide you in relentless pursuit of timeless memories, and God willing, some Elk!

Please give me a call or drop me a line, thanks so much,

Fishing

Right in our back yard we have World Class Gold Medal trout fishing at Spinney Mountain, Tarryall and 11 Mile. The 11 Mile is known internationally for its trophy sized northern pike, rainbows, cutthroats and browns taken all year long. The comeback is due to the successful techniques used by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to manage the reservoir's trout and pike fisheries.

Looking for a little more solitude and backcountry flyfishing opportunities? The Lost Creek Wilderness is a secret jem for those fishermen who love to have fun throwing out big ole dry flys, don't care what size fish you catch, and are willing to get off the grid. The waters of the Lost Creek, Wigwam Creek, Goose Creeks, and Craig Creek are home to countless delicious brookies! If you know where to look, you can find miles and miles of very low gradient stream with many undiscovered deep pools holding much larger than expected brook trout.

We can guide to these spots on foot or horseback, flyfishing or spin casting! You'd be hard pressed to find any better fishing in such a peaceful and scenic setting.

Give me a call and let's set up the perfect fishing trip for you.
