Merino Mountain is known for consistently producing quality bull elk. Typography is diverse and it includes lush creek bottoms, open avalanche shoots, high benches, dark timber, and above timberline alpine tundra. This camp offers some of the best elk hunting in over-the-counter unit 65. We first started hunting this area in 2014 and since then it has quickly become a top producing elk camp.
