We are a full service elk hunting guide outfit guiding hunts in the Bob Marshall Wilderness and Swan Valley areas of Montana off of horseback. Our hunting areas support a number of elk herds, with elk bulls taken frequently enough on our elk hunts. Our hunting areas also support ample populations of whitetail and mule deer and color phase black bear, increasing the chances of success across species. This terrain is more challenging to hunt elk in, no doubt, no flat land here. With the expertise and skill provided by our guides, we have had good luck in past years, and expect that to continue in the future. Our elk herds are in better shape today than they have been in thirty years!
For hunters interested in whitetail deer hunting, we have some super bucks and Boone and Crockett will confirm that the Flathead National Forest is one of the largest producers of trophy whitetail deer on public land in the country. We have a variety of choices to hunt whitetails either in combination with other species or targeting whitetails specifically. This is our highest success category for our hunts, and whitetail deer are too often over looked in Montana.
With the presence of mountain mule deer in this part of Montana, it is safe to say that high country mule deer hunts are our passion. Our guides provide great success rates on our guided mule deer hunts for those deer hunters willing to put in the extra effort to go up high for a mountain mule deer. Make no mistake, mountain mule deer are tough, and hunting them is even tougher, but for those that have the drive and physical ability to get up high, these hunts are remarkably rewarding.
On this hunt we can get either a mule deer or a whitetail.
