This HFA Endorsed Outfitter, invites you to experience Montana guided elk hunts and fair chase guided hunts for mule deer, moose, bighorn sheep, and mountain goat. Rifle and archery hunts are also available for cougar, moose, big horn sheep, mountain goat, and bison hunts. They deliver incredible elk hunting in some of the most beautiful land the Big Sky State of Montana can offer.

They have some of the best Montana guided big game hunts you can find. Montana offers a special pre-rifle season for archery enthusiasts. Mid to late September is generally the prime rut period for elk in our area and offers some very exciting bow hunting. Their guides are experienced archery hunters and can do an excellent job of getting you on the elk. The archery season is the only season in southwest Montana where you will have the opportunity to see and hear bull elk "bugle" in the wild. The rut will typically be over by the time rifle season opens.

When it comes to Montana guided big game hunts, their general hunting season runs for five (5) weeks, opening on either the third or fourth Sunday of October and closing on the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Your non-resident license includes an elk tag, deer tag, or both depending on which you decide to purchase. The general season is open to buck deer and branch-antlered elk only.

General Info:
In camp guests are provided heated sleeping tents, cots, and a foam mattress. All meals are served family style in a clean wholesome manner. The cooks take great pride in their meals and serve plenty of food for the heartiest appetite. The camps have ample tents and space for privacy. They offer women hunters/guests an excellent opportunity to feel completely comfortable on a back-country hunt.

Their horses are gentle with good mountain savvy. A professional guide accompanies each two hunters. Our guides are unique - all have up-to-date first aid, are good horsemen, and they know the country and game habits. All hunts are fair chase with the hunter and only the hunter pulling the trigger. Guides will not hunt in competition with you, their job is assist you in finding the game and take care of it after you bag it. They do ask that each and every hunter get in the best physical condition possible as this is rough country and we hunt hard from daylight until dark. They also ask that you do a lot of practice shooting during the year. Shoot from odd positions, standing, prone, etc., do not use a rest other than to sight in your rifle. Most shots will be quick and less than 150 yards. Wild elk and deer will not stand around and wait for you to find a rest to shoot from, often you will have less than ten seconds.

Camps are in beautiful scenic back-country, accessible only by foot or horseback. The camps are in the Gallatin National Forest of southwest Montana, just north of Yellowstone National Park (Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks hunt areas 308, 310, 311, 315 and 580 for elk).

The only items you furnish are your rifle, sleeping bag, personal effects and license. A recommended list of clothes to bring will be sent to you upon receipt of your reservation. Spouses/guests are welcome in camp as hunting or non-hunting clients. Rates for non-hunters are $200/day.

The number of days quoted for each hunt includes 1/2 day for packing into camp and 1/2 day for packing out. Your game is transported back to the ranch where provisions can be made for cold storage, cutting, shipping, taxidermy work, etc. Hunter stands all costs for processing game. Each hunt is detailed in a written contract and there are no hidden costs.

Guide gratuity is at the option of each client, and is not included in the hunt fee. Some form of gratuity certainly helps a guide feel that his hard work was appreciated.
