BACKCOUNTRY ARCHERY HUNTS 2022

SEPTEMBER 18-25
ARRIVAL: September 17, DEPARTURE: September 26

Our September archery hunt promises excitement and exhilaration in a wilderness setting. The Sun River Elk herd is over 1500 in number and in September, the fall breeding season is in full swing. Bugling is very effective in this archery only area that has many concentrations of Elk and Mule Deer. Our guides use their knowledge of the area and calling to draw in the big bulls to put you within shooting distance. 

BACKCOUNTRY RIFLE HUNTS 2022

OCTOBER 25 – NOVEMBER 1
ARRIVAL: October 24, DEPARTURE: November 2

NOVEMBER 4-11
ARRIVAL: November 3, DEPARTURE: November 12

The migration season begins in late-October. Each day begins before dawn to plan the day’s strategy over breakfast, and then head out by horseback for the day’s hunt. Fair chase methods are used, employing saddle horses when desirable, but doing a lot of stalking, glassing and tracking on foot. We may do some aggressive hiking, depending on the location of game. Chances are good for a lot of snow and cold weather, causing the elk to herd up for their annual trek to the lower elevations. We know the country and game habits well, and will do our best to put you in a position to score a successful kill. Although we do take our share of trophy animals each year, we do not make any guarantees on game taken. With top notch equipment, courteous and knowledgeable staff, we will do our best to give you a rewarding and memorable hunting experience. A list of references that you may contact will gladly be provided.
