If you are looking for a true Wilderness hunt, that is deep enough in the back country for you to experience a true horseback, fair chase experience, in wild country that supports excellent elk, whitetail and mule deer habitat with an opportunity to harvest a respectable bull or buck, then this hunt is for you. This is not an “easy” hunt. Terrain can be challenging. Taking an elk on a Fair Chase hunt in the backcountry is one of the greatest trophy and memories you can have. We work hard to make you successful, but not everyone will harvest an elk. Mother Nature is in control, weather, predators and early migrations effect success and are out of our control. Come with a realistic expectation for a great hunt, in spectacular country and the opportunity to harvest a trophy.

Black Bear are common and may be hunted as the primary species or in conjunction with our Elk/Deer hunts. Hunters must take and pass a bear identification test before purchasing a Black Bear hunting license. There are two ways to take the test and receive your certification: • ONLINE at Montana Fish Wildlife & Park’s website at fwp.mt.gov and search ’Bear ID Test’ OR • MAIL IN – Request a mail-in test by calling 406-444-2535. Licenses will be available online or over the counter.
If you are interested in harvesting a wolf, we suggest that you buy a wolf tag (or 2 or 3) and hunt in conjunction with our other hunts. Wolf hunting is generally opportunistic when we focus on elk and deer. However, 2 of our hunting guides are some of the best “wolf howlers” anywhere. We often take a morning or evening and hunt specifically for wolves.
