Hunting Big Game in Colorado with KB Outdoors, Inc. License(s): Colorado #2955
" I elk hunted with KB Outdoors Inc. 1st season 2014 and have nothing but praise for the operation. Everyone involved were very professional, always on time, and did everything in their power to insure a good and safe hunt. Kyle and his guides are accomplished hunters and all know the area very well if they are telling you something listen as they have seen or done it in this very area before. Don't guide your guide I saw one older hunter doing this last year all I can say is you paid for this experience if you think you can do it yourself why did you hire a guide? Listen and learn! I had Kyle's father as my guide and I learned more in one hunting trip than I could have learned in 10 years of hunting on my own. The area hunted is varying terrain but nothing to extreme if your in any kind of shape at all but expect to do some hiking. Also plan on some sitting as there are times of day where you must scan openings for game movement. The elevation is not terrible in Colorado terms but do yourself a favor if you are a flat lander and get close by a couple days before your hunt to get acclimated. There are a couple towns very close by that have some very interesting history and there is a lake super close to your hunting area for some trout fishing. Shooting can be anything from in your face out to scary distances so know your gun and practice to be confident in your shooting abilities when the time comes to pull the trigger. This is a quality elk area expect to see good elk but not huge numbers so you will want to be able to take the shots the elk decide to give you. Lots of good mule deer running around also I ended up wishing for a deer tag at times while elk hunting. Sometimes lunch! Or a stop after a days hunt at the ranch house is great. Kyle's grandpa lives there on the ranch and is a long time hunter of the area as was Kyle's great grandfather. Lots of good hunting stories from days past and some old time hunting pictures too. Everything involved in my hunt made for a great time and no I didn't shoot an elk but after seeing what I saw of the area and the quality of the hunt put on by KB Outdoors. I'm booked to go again this year hoping the elk gods will be smiling on me this time! -Ted Weichselbaum
"I booked a mule deer hunt with KB Outdoors this past hunting season and have nothing but great things to say about them. It was my first mule deer hunt, and was a very memorable and successful hunt. I really enjoyed the time spent with the guides and the overall experience. I highly recommend them and will definitely be booking more hunts with them in the future."
"I have been fortunate to hunt and fish in many special places in North America and beyond. During those adventures I have met many interesting guides and outfitters, most of them are good, a few that were okay, and a couple bad. KB Outdoors, Kyle Lopez, his family and guides are truly exceptional. I have known the Lopez family for many, many years. Nobody will work harder to make your hunt a success than Kyle and crew. It’s in his blood, it’s what he loves and it shows. In my experience, a hunt becomes special when you have awesome habitat with great animals, and guides that know their stuff. Throw that in with people you really enjoy being around and it’s a home run.
I am very thankful to Kyle and the whole family for making our hunts an adventure; for making it the experience we were looking for and not just worrying about pulling the trigger. I want to learn about the animals, the terrain and the habitat. Kyle knows there is more to a hunt than just punching the tag, and I appreciate that about an outfitter. Don’t get me wrong, Kyle knows what quality animals are, and has got the success photos to prove it. Heck, he took one of the biggest mule deer in the world! Regardless of what success means to each individual, KB Outdoors has proven to me that they can make it happen, thanks Kyle!"
