About the Outfitter:

We do our best to provide you with our 25 years of experience outfitting. These are semi-guided hunts which is perfect for your hunting freedom. The outfitter and guides work with you to get you set up overlooking hay fields, thoroughfares, and migration corridors where the elk travel. Their movement and the others hunting with you provide enough movement so that the elk move easily.

In addition, we hunt and harvest as many mountain Lions and coyotes as possible every year. With the large number of deer, elk and antelope on the property it is a great attractant to predators. This being eagles for the fawns along with coyotes and mountain lions from young to full size game. They travel to some degree with the food source.

Hunts to die for and elk have been dying for it for years. Being taken by archers, muzzleloaders and rifle hunters that have found this great area, and never leave. Hunters that hunt here know about the high density of elk and the low price of the hunt and stop looking for a place to hunt. The success speaks for its self.

Every year we take some great trophy deer and even antelope off the hayfields and perimeter areas.

We promote hunting and want you to have a good time and take-home an animal. We will assist you in getting set up in a great area then move with different hunters to move the large volume of elk around. They will come by your location. There is no need to walk all day as in some hunting. Sitting in a high traffic area we find that you see more elk and your shot accuracy is much better, because you are able to better plan your shot and have a good solid rest for you rifle as the elk come into range of you position.

License and Season Information

Lay of the Land:

The elk are hard on the hay fields so we are taking a few off this year to allow us to bail more hay. We graze very few to none of our cattle on the property so there is always plenty of feed for the elk left over along with the creek bottoms and hillsides. The hillsides also provide cover with the elk’s favorite cover, scrub oak, bitterbrush abounds in the area which provides 15% protein and is 50% digestible so it requires minimal energy to process and the maximum amount of protein. In relation to straight corn is only 7%. Nature takes care of its animals and all we do is provide a semi-safe place, with little traffic and a little harvest. Our deer, elk and antelope predators are kept at a bare minimum as we do not provide a safe haven for them on our properties.

Party Size:

One or more hunters per group.

Mode of Travel:

Vehicle, ATV and foot. Snowmobile for cow elk in December if enough snow.

Animal Quality:

Typical elk 4x4 to 6x6. Mule Deer 120” to 150”.

Success Rate:

100% opportunity and near 100% harvest rifle season. For those that can shoot we run close to 100% harvest. For those that can’t shoot they have plenty of opportunity and shoot a lot of bullets and have a good time. As we know elk can be extremely smart and the 14-year-old lead cows have been through these 14 times. For the archer and the muzzleloader hunters we run some of the highest success rates, even with the reduced range weapons. For the rifle shooter it gets no better than this if you want to fill your freezer with meat and put horns on your wall.

Hunt Difficulty:

Low impact meaning easier hiking than most hunts. Recommended for those that have difficulty getting around.
