Colorado is perhaps one of the most popular destinations for big game hunters. Big game animals include white-tailed and mule deer, pronghorn, black bear, moose, and most notably, Rocky Mountain elk. With seemingly endless stretches of backcountry and hundreds of professional outfitters, Colorado is filled with opportunity for every hunter.
Colorado offers some of the best fishing in the country with its 6,000 miles of rivers and streams as well as 2,000 lakes and reservoirs. World-famous for its trout fishing, the waters of Colorado are home to species including brooks, lakes, cutthroats, rainbows, and browns. For those willing to sacrifice the comfort of home and warmth, Colorado is a popular spot for ice fishing during the heart of winter.
