Southeastern Wyoming First Class Elk Hunt

Description

This southeastern Wyoming private ranch is quickly gaining notoriety as one of the state’s premier elk hunting destinations. In totality the ranch is over 60,000 acres (95 square miles) and varies from 6,400-8600 feet in elevation. The lower portions of the ranch feature rolling grasslands containing cottonwoods within the drainages which gradually give way to the hogbacks containing an array of pine, willow, and low brush plant varieties. This hunt can be as physically demanding as a hunter desires but as an overall rule of thumb it is low impact. A developed road system within the ranch makes cutting distances simple and eliminates brutally long hikes.

Spot and stalk hunting as well as calling are almost exclusively used regardless of weapon choice to hunt the bulls that call this area home. Often time’s hunters will find themselves sitting on a high vantage point at daybreak, glassing the vast landscape until a suitable bull is found. This outfitter and his experienced team of guides have produced excellent results for not only rifle hunters but also bow/crossbow hunters. Elk here experience such minimal hunting pressure they will bugle willingly and often time come in hard to calling. The 2018 archery season produced a 100%+ shot opportunity as well as 100% harvest for archery hunters.

Due to the immense size of the ranch as well as limited offtake the quality of the bulls is ever improving. Extensive preseason scouting is done to ensure every hunter has the best chance possible to harvest a mature animal. No more than four elk hunters are allowed on the ranch at one time and twelve total hunts are offered each season.  

Lodging consists of a five bedroom/ four bath rock house that has acted as a focal point in the region for over a century. The lodge has been renovated with all modern conveniences but still holds onto its deep western roots. A caretaker will be present to provide all meals and ensure your stay is one to remember.  

Tags for this hunt can be drawn with 1 preference point in the “special”  making this a very simple hunt to plan.
