Coffeepot High Country Outfitters, Inc. is owned and operated by Kelley and Monte Sanburg, of Montrose, Colorado. Kelley (Field) and Monte married in 1984. Natives of Montrose, they have lived their entire lives farming, running livestock and hunting the western slope high country of Colorado. They are both fourth generation family members in the Uncompahgre Valley (where Montrose is located). The outfitting business has been a stronghold for the family for three generations and making “Coffeepot” a reality has been the goal for many years. It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication to put the business together, but with patience and persistence the high standards and goals of Coffeepot Outfitters have come to surface. There is a wide range of services they offer between big game hunting, fishing and outdoor adventures. Each package is designed with the consumer’s safety and satisfaction in mind. They are steadfast in their ideals of providing services to the best of their abilities and being recognized in our profession as a top-notch outfit.
Kelley graduated from Colorado State University in 1984 with a B.S. in Agricultural Business, at which she returned home to raise horses, cattle and ranch in Montrose. Monte has worked in the mining, ranching, and construction fields since high school. He has been traveling about the United State as a superintendent for Pinnacle Construction out of Omaha, Nebraska for the past several years. The primary focus for them both is however, the guide and outfitting business.
Monte has been guiding for elk and mule deer since he was a young boy and knows how to set people up for a successful hunt in the country that he has hunted himself for many years. Kelley handles the business end, the horses and packing in and out of remote camps. They have a team of guides, wranglers, cooks and helpers that make this whole thing work very well. They pride themselves on honesty and integrity.
If you are looking for an outfitter to provide you with an honest and memorable hunting trip or perhaps an unforgettable family vacation in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, you have found one! Colorado high country is known for its elk herds and mule deer hunting, as well as its spectacular Rocky Mountains with the majesty of the Continental Divide running the length of the state. Our country is filled with the vivid colors of quaking aspen trees, various wildlife and and the timberline tundra. We pride ourselves on being one of the best elk and mule deer hunting outfitters around, so please take a moment and see the many services we offer.
We are full-time, year-round dedicated outfitters. Our families are proud to have five generations of history here in the Uncompahgre Valley of Western Colorado. We specialize in mule deer and elk hunting. We have resident herds of elk and mule deer found in some of the most coveted hunting grounds in the western region. We offer private land guided hunts with comfortable lodge accommodations as well as National Forest pack in drop camps. These hunts are located just east of Montrose, Colorado in Game Management Units (GMU) 64 and 65 with elk licenses still available over the counter. These hunts are in addition to our premier wilderness pack-in horse hunts in Colorado Trophy GMU 66 located in Lake City, Colorado. Our Lake City hunts take some prior planning for preference points and obtaining your hunting licenses which we are more than happy to assist you with. Our advantage is that we operate in three game management units so we can work with you to help make sure you receive a license for the species and season you want. Black bear, moose, mountain lion and other wildlife species roam the mountains with the deer and elk and we are right in the middle of them. Our goal is to provide a quality hunt or outdoor experience for you that will bring you, your friends and family back year after year to join our Coffeepot family.
In addition to our excellent big game hunting opportunities we offer summer vacation adventures including trail riding, fishing, pack trips and special family outings. You name it and we can do it for you. Just click on the buttons above for more information on your area of interest.
