Private Land Outfitted Hunts
This is one of the best combination elk and deer hunts you will find. There are also a large number of black bears in the early seasons. This productive ranch is completely behind locked gates. This hunt is a hybrid of a guided hunt and a drop camp. You are provided with lodging, 2 home cooked meals, along with a sack lunch each day, pack horses, and a guide in camp to show you the ranch, plus GPS coordinates of the best spots. This hunt allows you the freedom of a drop camp, to hunt on your own without all the cooking and camp chores. You will hunt out of our private ranch that also accesses several thousand acres of land locked national forest. The lower end of the ranch adjoins a remote state wildlife area. All you have to do is concentrate on bagging that big bull. You are outfitted with everything you need to have a successful hunt. If you like the challenge of elk hunting on your own with all the extras of a full service hunt without the high price tag, this is the one for you. Comparable guided hunts would run in excess of $5000. These are great hunts for the veteran hunter and novice alike. You will have a comfortable cabin to stay in and the finest in home cooked meals. Anyone filling their tags early can fish for rainbows and brookies in our private lake. The ranch can be reached by 4WD, and provides a great opportunity for those that can't get around like they use to. There are miles of road less forest for those wanting to hunt this remote unspoiled area.

Wilderness Backcountry Bow Hunts
The wilderness backcountry bow hunt is our newest offering. We are not new to archery or wilderness hunting. But we have developed this new hunt to maximize your opportunity at taking home a trophy of a lifetime. We took the amenities of a big base camp and shrunk them down to a small spike camp style hunt. By employing small camps we are able to camp closer to the game and spend less time on horseback riding to and from hunting areas giving you more time to spend in the field hunting.
These 2 hunter 1 guide camps are located deep in the heart of elk county that is only accessible by foot or horseback. We pack all of your gear into camp by horseback. Then you are left with your guide for 6 days of remarkable hunting. The hunting area consists of deep grassy valleys, stands of dark timber, high ridges, and parks of alpine tundra above timberline. Numerous wallows decorate the many secluded basins. Mornings usually include bugling bulls. Afternoons will find you sitting active wallows or high on a ridge glassing elk.
