BACKCOUNTRY ARCHERY HUNT
OCTOBER 3-9, 2017
Our archery elk & deer hunt promises 7 days of excitement and exhilaration in a wilderness setting. The Sun River Elk herd is over 2500 in number and in early October, the fall rut season is in full swing. Our guides use their knowledge of the area and calling to draw in the big bulls of 300 - 375 B & C score. We consistently get trophy animals within 10 - 30 yards.
BACKCOUNTRY RIFLE SEASON HUNTS
OCTOBER 24 - 31 ◆ NOVEMBER 3 - 10 ◆ NOVEMBER 13-20
The migration season begins in mid-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.
