    Being a successful outfitter means 60 to 80

    hour work weeks most of the year. It begins with

    strategic advertising, website, sport shows, -

    recruitment and retention of clientele and

    finally culminates with the hunt or fishing

    trip itself. Livestock, trucks, trailers and camp

    equipment must be cared for year round, and

    then, there is the paperwork. Federal and State

    agencies need, require, demand record keep-

    ing such as employee records, BLM and Forest

    permits, Outfitters Registration, vehicle and

    liability insurance, and the list goes on.

    Some outfitters prudently join COA and other

    professional organizations, and a few become

    active in those organizations. Even fewer give

    selflessly of their time and energy, attending

    countless meetings and taking on leadership


    All of the above describes Jeanne Horne.

    Jeanne is a single person who not only operates

    a successful outfitting business but has been

    actively involved in the Colorado Outfitters

    Association for over a decade and has made

    time to be our dedicated Secretary for the past

    10 years. She is truly a valued asset of this


    Congratulations Jeanne! We honor you with

    respect and appreciation for the person you




    Jeanne Horne is our Outf itter of The Year for 2012.
