MONTANA ELK HUNTS

FALL HUNTS START WITH ARCHERY

We cover a lot of ground on these elk hunts so 4 hunters per hunt is the maximum We also utilize spike camps as needed. Guides are experienced in bugling and early season habits of the rutting bull elk. This is a pack in hunt and camps are first rate.

GENERAL SEASON RIFLE HUNTS

Rugged country and winter range provides the essentials for a good elk population. We have found that the single most important thing that our hunters can bring with them is an enthusiastic attitude and a sincere desire to hunt. If you combine that with proper equipment and some preparation on your part, including getting into shape and lots of practice with your rifle at quick close targets as well as long range ones, keeping in mind a good hunt should not be measured by the size of the trophy but of a mutual satisfying hunting experience. We work hard to give each client a memorable hunt, fairly priced.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The day starts at 4:00 am for the cook and guides, we have coffee and discuss the upcoming events of the day. Between 4:30 and 5:00 the guides catch, grain and saddle all stock that will be used that day. I will arrive at your tent approximately at 5:00 to light your stove and lantern and if you are lucky, a cup of coffee. A hearty breakfast will be served at 5:30. Conversation will continue about the day’s hunt. Sometime before 6:30 visit the outhouse. We will be riding out around 6:30 am with lunch, water, gun, daypack, etc.

We will be riding to the pre-arranged hunting spot usually between 45 minutes and 2 hours, where the horses will be tied for the day. Grab your lunch, water, daypack and gun.  Don’t forget the ammunition! The hunting for the rest of the day will be on foot. You will arrive back at the horses in the evening tired and satisfied with a good day’s hunt and looking forward to a good camp meal. If you have harvested your elk, your guide will field dress it, likely it will be left overnight and the next day will be spent retrieving and packing it to camp or the ranch depending on time.

WISDOM FROM JEFF FREEMAN

My favorite gun is a 338 mag with 225 nosler partition bullets. I believe in good quality scopes, Leopold or Swarovski will never let you down. I harvest trophy deer only, I believe in shot placement kills, heart lung area. Shots can be 50 to 300 yards so don’t be surprised.

Bring good foot gear. I recommend insulated pack type boot with removable liners, dry weather boots and plenty of wool and cotton socks. Boots with air bob soles are best, regular vibram sole do not work well when side-hilling.

Limit your pack to 70 pounds. Choose your clothing carefully. Wool shirts and pants, flannel shirt and technical gear are perfect. Bring a heavy and light wool or technical jacket such as Sitka Gear .

I hope this will help with planning your hunt. We are committed to giving you our very best hunting adventure that you hoped for. Are you up for the challenge?
