Winter 2016 lion - Cordell, OK

Just one chance is all it's going to take. Cliff Carney and his family will be the guide service you been searching for your whole life. From the great food Dusty and and the kids prepare to the actual hunt it's a never ending adventure. Can't wait to make it back to Colorado on my next hunt with Carneys guide service.


Winter 2015 - Centennial, CO

I hunted with many outfitters around the country, and Carney's Guide Service is a the top of the list when it comes to honesty, hard work and dedication. These people truly love what they do. I booked a lion hunt for my 16 year old son and these folks had a giant tom lion located before we ever arrived and it didn't take long on the first day of the hunt to find his fresh track and get him treed. I would recommend Carneys Guide Service and there team to anyone.

Winter 2012 - Ogden, UT

Just wanted to say thank you, to everyone at Carney's Guide Service for making my Mountain Lion hunting experience better than any other hunt I've been on. Cliff's love and passion for his hounds and hunting are unmatched. There is no one in the business who could possibly work harder than Carney's Guide Service. I will be back.

March 2016 - Hotchkiss, CO where hunted From Fort Loudon, Pa

This was going to be the first mountain lion hunt I was ever on. Reading up on the best conditions to harvest one I found fresh snow was the best. I wasn't able to get to Colorado until mid March but figured they would still have snow. But as it happened it was warm and no snow. Reading about lion hunting I knew this dry ground hunting would be hard. But as it happened Cliff's dogs are fantastic! We ran lions on the dry ground all 4 days we hunted. The fourth day we started early and found fresh sign. His great dogs treed the big tom . I will definitely be back for another lion hunt with my grandson. And hopefully an elk hunt. Cliff and his family are wonderful people! And the food was great! You could not ask for a more hardworking and respectful guiding operation!!!

January 2016 - Montrose, CO.

Top Shelf! That's how we describe Cliff Carney and his Guide Service. We never expected to cut a track first off, and come home with an amazing Lion on the first day... but we did! I couldn't have asked for a better hunt, from beginning to end it was an amazing experience. Thanks to Cliff, Shawn, Mike and all of those amazing dogs our memories of this hunt will last forever!!!

third season 2015 - Traverse City, MI

I am 4 for 4 on elk hunts, this was the first time hunting with Cliff & this is the first time I owe the elk to the guide. He saw them when I didn't, set up the plan and the plan came together. He talked me thru the shots & I've never seen anybody cut up an elk like he did, I've cut all my animals up but I felt like I was in his way. He carried a front and a back quarter at the same time, I've never seen that before. He is the hardest working guide I've dealt with and this elk is more his than mine. Dusty food was better than the other camps I've dealt with, you can tell they care.



I can't say enough about the outstanding experience I had with Carney's Guide Service. The accommodations and food were fantastic! Cliff and Scott were extremely knowledgable, and put me on bugling elk from the start! Cliff goes above and beyond to ensure you have a great hunt. I already booked my 2014 Mule Deer hunt with Cliff, and plan on returning for many years to come!
