Archery elk hunts take place September 1st thru the 30th from a wall tent camp on the Bighorn National Forest that you can drive to. Camp is located on the scenic Tongue River drainage at 7,000 ft. Meals are served in a 16x20 cook tent. You will stay in a 12x14 wall tent with a floor, custom wood stoves, lanterns, and XL padded cots which make for a comfortable stay. Locating a bugling bull and then getting in close and calling him in makes for one of the most exciting hunts in North America. Spot and stalk, blinds and treestands are also used to arrow bulls. Pick-ups and ATV'S are used to get to hunting areas and then you will be on foot. Being in good shape on this hunt is important and will make your hunt more enjoyable. Bulls average 280 to 320 on these hunts with the opportunity for bigger bulls. These are 1x1 guided hunts. Shot opportunity is 90% to 100% most years. If required we have horses available for packing your elk out. We guide in units 37, 38 and 39 which take 2-8 preference points to draw most years.Camp is located on the scenic Tongue River drainage at 7,000 ft. Meals are served in a 16x20 cook tent.

Rifle elk hunts take place Oct. 15-Nov. 5 from the same wall tent camp as the archery hunts. Some bugling action can be expected the first week of hunting with bulls breaking off into bachelor groups throughout the season. You will spend most of your time glassing from vantage points trying to locate a big bull. Sometimes we are lucky enough to catch some bugling this time of year which makes for an exciting hunt. Weather will be a factor during the hunt. Cold and snow always help. All elk are resident elk and are always in the area, snow and cold just make them more visible. Bulls will range in size from 280"-320" with 350" plus bulls in the area. Hunter success rates have averaged 75% with 100% shot opportunity most years. These are 2x1 hunts. We primarily guide in unit 38 during rifle season which takes 3 to 6 preference points to draw.
