About Us

Muddy Draw Outdoors, LLC was born by two Wyoming natives and is the by-product of a passion to hunt elk.  Both Jim Dahl and Josh Cozzens share a parallel obsession to get in the trees and chase bugling bulls.  They love sharing this opportunity with clients and are devoted to showing them some of the finest hunting Wyoming has to offer.


The name Muddy Draw Outdoors is in reference to a mutual favorite place of both Josh's and Jim's to chase rutting bulls on their hunting grounds.


We welcome you to join us on your next Wyoming hunting adventure where the memories made won't be easy to forget! 

Hunts and Pricing

  • Welcome to a Wyoming elk hunt of a lifetime!  Our hunts take place in the famed Area 7 of southeast Wyoming on a ranch in the heart of elk country.  We are permitted for both State and National Forest lands surrounding the ranch and when combined with the ranch property, allow us to hunt over 27,000 acres.  We limit the number of hunters we take to offer a truly exceptional property with very little pressure.


  • Accommodations will be at one of two homes on the ranch.  It is a great place to enjoy a home cooked meal and relax after a day of hunting.  The elk hunting starts literally right out the front door!  All of the country we hunt can accessed by 4x4 which allows for great glassing and spot and stalk hunting.  We also have numerous tree stand locations, water holes and wallows we can hunt, and of course chasing bugles and calling elk, which is always an incredible experience!


  • We are avid hunters and have a passion for the outdoors and elk hunting.  We have over 40 years working, hunting and guiding on the ranch.  We know the property!  We will adapt to each hunting situation and individual hunter.  This property has produced mature trophy bulls consistently year after year, most scoring 300 - 330.  There is also the very real possibility of harvesting a bull 350+.  The biggest bull taken to date on the ranch was during an archery hunt and scored an amazing 399-4/8!


  • Area 7 is a highly sought after tag that usually takes 5+ points to draw.  We can help manage and track preference points for you and help with the application process.  We also offer cow hunts, which is a great way to experience a Wyoming elk hunt on the ranch while continuing to build preference points.


  • Our experience and knowledge of the country we hunt and our willingness to work hard, allows us to provide you with unparalleled service and the opportunity to experience a great Wyoming elk hunt.  We look forward to sharing our passion with you!
