Wapiti Ridge is a high elevation elk camp that sits nearly at timberline. Herds of elk frequent the nearby creek bottom and open basins. The topography of this camp is more open meadows than dark timber, making it the rifle hunters dream hunting area. Archery hunters still have great success here catching elk moving between open meadows and stands of timber. Herds of elk can often be spotted from camp. The majority of elk have been harvested within one mile of camp.

2018 Forecast

Wapiti Ridge is always a high success camp. I see no reason 2018 would be any different. I look forward to doing some scouting in July. Check back for scouting reports.

2017 Recap

2017 only saw one group of drop camp hunters. They took home a solid 5×6 bull. On the last day of muzzleloader season, it was slow at another camp, so we rode over to hunt Wapiti Ridge. There were elk everywhere. The bulls were bugling and sparring, chasing cows so hard it made it difficult to get a shot lined up. There was one 7×7 bull that I estimate would have measured over 330 inches. It was probably one of the most enjoyable days I had hunting in 2017.
