General Season Rifle Hunts
in Yellowstone Area (Semi-Guided)


Our hunting area north of Yellowstone National Park has one of the best elk populations in the state, largely due to the fact that private ranches provide year-round food and secure habitat. In addition, when inclement weather arrives between mid-October and Thanksgiving, the hunting is often considered the finest in the world!

For an area that has such good elk hunting, the deer hunting isn't too bad either! We can hunt the mule deer rut in our area, which usually takes place from early November through Thanksgiving. Average mature bucks would be 20 to 24 inches wide, although we have taken several in the 30 inch class.

In addition, we have taken voluntary steps in the past 10 years to manage our deer and elk herds for larger animals. See reverse trophy fees.


Our elk/mule deer combination semi-guided hunt price varies according to party size. Not all weeks are available for semi-guided hunting.

What We Provide

  • Guided hunts include 1 guide for each 3-4 hunters. If you don't have partners, we may be able to provide some for you. However, I will give you a better price on your hunt if you gather your own hunting party.

  • We have comfortable, but not plush sleeping and dining facilities for our guests. You can get a shower, use a phone, and sleep in a bed every night. The price of your hunt includes pick up and delivery to the Bozeman, Montana airport for those who wish to arrive by airplane.

  • Access to the hunting area can be by horse, 4WD, on foot, or a combination of the above. This is your hunt, we can make it as demanding or as relaxed as you want.

  • We provide game retrieval and transportation of meat to a meat processor. Should you desire to take your game home with you unprocessed, we will hang it for you (indoors) for the week. We also provide trophy preparation (caping) and transportation to a taxidermist, should you desire. You will have to pay for all meat processing, meat shipping, taxidermy work, and trophy shipping.

  • An unforgettable experience in the great Montana outdoors.
How This Hunt Varies From Our Fully Guided Hunts

You stay in the same great facilities, eat the same great food as our fully guided hunters. Your game meat gets the same special attention, and your trophy is exceptionally cared for. You will not have much one-on-one time with your guide, you do need to be in good physical shape, and you need to be an "outdoorsman" who can navigate in tough terrain without guiding.
