We are blessed to be located right next to the best of both worlds. Our hunts in New Mexico for desert sheep are world class well managed units for monster sheep. Colorado sheep hunting offers a huge number of tags and units across the state with over all good quality sheep in almost every unit.

Our Sheep guiding division of Compass West Outfitters is often over seen by world class sheep hunting expert and taxidermist, John Gardner. John has guided one-on-one back pack sheep and goat hunts for the last 20+ years. With his years of experience of guiding only sheep and goat hunts, anything John has planned for your dream hunt will not disappoint.  Our other sheep hunting guides spend their summer in the high country or the desert lowlands of New Mexico looking for your dream sheep.

Colorado Sheep Hunting:
Compass West Outfitters is a priority permit use holder in the San Juan National Forest, Colorado as well as the Rio Grande National Forest. We are licensed, bonded and insured Colorado outfitter #1929, these are the main areas we hunt. However hunters need to understand that many national forest areas have a policy that allows priority permit holders in Colorado (we hold 2), to apply for and obtain special use permit for special hunts such as big horn sheep and mountain goat outside their primary areas.

As a result of this privilege we have been able to assist hunters with their special hunt in almost any area of Colorado for sheep over the past 10 years. We have had excellent success (95%) in obtaining permits in almost any area of Colorado we have tried to including many national forest areas outside the primary permits that we hold. We have enjoyed this special privilege on many hunts allowing hunters to have a little more freedom in choosing their outfitter or guide for this very special hunt. Soon as you contact us we will attempt to receive a verbal ok on the permit from the area managers. Once we have the verbal I will let you know, and begin the permit process. Once I have obtained the approval for that hunt and permit, we will at that time issue the required contracts and information regarding your hunt. Again we have been 95% successful getting the permits and in the 5% unsuccessful we have known on the first phone call that permits were not possible.

John Gardner has been in the business of chasing sheep in Colorado for over 20 years. Guiding for us as well as many other outfitters in the state as a sheep only guide over the past 2 decades in Colorado plus New Mexico and Nevada. If we are unable to obtain the necessary permits for your hunt, we can refer you to the very best priority use permit holders in that area that we know or trust will take care of you. S8, S9, S15, S16, S21, S28, S29, S31, S33 , S3, S4, S35 are some of the hunts we love that are outside our normal permit area but we are damn good at what we do, and will bust our butts for you in any area!

With a 90% harvest on goat and sheep hunts with a firearm for the last two decades, don’t wait to call us today and make that sheep hunting dream a reality with Compass West Outfitters.
