Wilderness Pack-in Hunting

Wilderness Pack-in elk hunting
Recent Photos

This is the ultimate in elk and mule deer hunting. No fences to bind you or the game,  just miles of seemingly endless big game habitat. There is no greater hunting accomplishment than having harvested a wilderness bull elk or timberline mule deer. Pack-in hunts are our specialty. We raise and train most all of our stock for the rigors of this type of hunt. All of our equipment is top notch and has been field tested, tried and true in the wilderness. Having outfitted in these same areas for over 30 years we know the game herds and the country they travel. Action Adventures is a full time outfitter and pack-in hunting is what we do best.

We offer wilderness pack-in hunts in both limited units as well as over-the-counter units. Our wall tent camps include all the amenities and are strategically positioned to give you the best opportunity on your hunt. Camps are kept small to keep pressure low.
