License and Season Information

Lay of the Land:

Bull Basin Cabin: A cabin on 40 acres private with 20,000 acres national forest access 200 yards from the back of the cabin and walking access only.  Other hunters have to walk 8 miles around to get there so you will probably be alone. This cabin will sleep 3 to 6 hunters and make a great hunting cabin, not a lot of flash but in the great location.  The property is at 9500' elevation and perfect for elk with closest public access 2 miles away so it takes work for anyone else to get up there.  The cabin is on the back side of the private land, so no one hunts it. It is in a way that National Forest hunters do not go there but do push deer and elk to you. Do not forget you can shoot right out of the cabin door as you leave in the morning. The road to it is accessible by 4WD Truck or ATV. Pockets like this are famous for producing bucks and bulls that no one has ever seen before. The heat is wood stove, cooking is propane and since you are off the grid the electrical is from the cabin generator. Water is hauled to the cabin for you, so you have all the comforts of home in this well insulated cabin.

Party Size (min/max for booking):

Bull Basin cabin 3 minimum to 6 max.

Mode of Travel:

Drive to cabins. Recommend ATVs for getting to/from lodging or game retrieval only so as not to spook game. Horses ok too.
