Rifle – October
Archery – September
This is truly a special place to hunt bull elk. This outfitter offers elite, trophy outfitted elk hunts in the heart of the Laramie Mountain Range on more than 300,000 private acres. Their guides have led hunters to numerous Wyoming Outfitters and Guides Association awards over the last decade. The September archery hunt is really something to experience. The fall colors and the beauty of the ranch, while experiencing one of the most spectacular sights in nature – the Rocky Mountain elk rut – is hard to beat. Also, remember, in Wyoming crossbows are legal. The mid-October through mid-November rifle season is also a very high quality experience as you will be hunting bulls headed to their winter range and starting to bachelor-up . The ranch offers five star lodging and outstanding meals. Sportsmen must have 12 or more elk preference points in order to draw an area 7 tag.
