What CCO Does
This high country wilderness paradise is accessible only by foot or horseback. Our Forest Service permit allows us access to guide on more land than any other outfitters in the surrounding area. We have access to take you anywhere within a nearly 115 square mile space of some of the most rugged and beautiful mountain country anywhere. We’ll take you in for a day of fishing, sightseeing, wildlife watching, photography shoots, or just to soak up the country. Or, if you’re up for more of an adventure, let’s stay the night in one of our base camps, and experience a campfire and the view of the stars from 12,000 feet. Or try a multi-day pack trip, seeing different country each day. Our hunts in the fall range from drop camps, to pack in services, to freight services if you get an animal down on your own. If you can dream of an adventure you’d like to experience, let us know and we’ll try and make it happen.
Bart has been hunting and packing into this 115 square mile area for over fifty years. He grew up in these mountains with his father and grandfather. He knows his way around a horse and an elk, and will always make you feel at ease and in good hands.
the daughter of Bart, Austin is a capable young woman who enjoys any time, rain or shine, spent in the mountains, especially if the view is from the back of a horse. She loves the horses and they come first when she's in charge. She managed Rainbow Trout Outfitters from 2021-2022 before taking a job in Texas as a ranch manager. She still sneaks away from time to time to help CCO.
Marvin grew up locally and knows his way around the mountains well. He has been involved in hunting operations all of his life. He is very good with horses, and connects well with people as well. Marvin is a very down-to-earth sort of guy, and will make your hunting or camping trip memorable. You're always in good hands when he is around!
The son of Bart, Dalton grew up hunting, fishing, and horseback riding with his dad. He knows his way around the canyons and has harvested a fair few animals of his own. He spent two years on a church mission in Mexico, and speaks both English and Spanish fluently.
Kent is very knowledgable about the area and knows all the ropes. He is very good with people and is very good with the livestock. He is honest and likable and will see you through your adventure.
Rocky is an experienced guide and knows the back country well. He has been riding in these mountains for years. You can count on never having a dull moment when Rocky is around as he always finds the humor in life.
Rocky left this world in October of 2021 after an accident with a tractor. He was a huge part of our operation, and we miss him every day. He is with us in spirit, always.
