Craig ranks 77th in Outdoor Life’s list of best towns for sportsmen

While hunters travel all over Colorado each year to bag big game, Craig offers one thing other towns don’t, Rob Schmitzer said. “We have the big game hunting and a large population of other wildlife,” he said. “But, we have hundreds of thousands of acres of public land that are not over-utilized. Craig offers solitude.” In Outdoor Life magazine’s fourth annual rankings of the top 200 towns for sportsmen, Craig was ranked 77th, dropping nine spots from last year.
