H & H is situated in the heart of Northwest Colorado’s elk country. They are a fully-licensed, bonded and insured Colorado outfitter. John and Tawny are third-generation Meekerites and are currently training the fourth generation as future replacements.H & H specializes in elk, mule deer, and antelope hunts. Guided hunts are designed to allow the hunter to enjoy all the aspects of the outdoors and a quality big game hunt. They prefer hunters to focus on the hunt, so they limit the hunter’s responsibilities to eating, sleeping and of course hunting while they do all the rest.H & H also has a state-of-the-art meat processing center with the ability to process your game professionally and quickly. In many instances you can take it with you when you head home. If not, your meat will be shipped within a week or two. Their processing plant is located west of Meeker, and since its inception in 1993, it has become a local favorite for many big game hunters. What started as a small operation to handle personal clients’ game has rapidly grown and is consistently processing up to 600 deer and elk annually. Cleanliness and good service are their top priority. They always handle your game with utmost care and special attention is given to detail. H & H Processing offers a variety of options in preparation of your meat and trophies.For more information, contact John or Tawny at (970) 878-5151 or (970) 878-5126 or online at
