At 2.3 million acres it is the largest contiguous area of protected wilderness in the continental United States. Together with the adjacent Gospel Hump Wilderness and surrounding unprotected roadless Forest Service land, it is the core of a 3.3 million acre roadless area.

Most of our hunters are satisfied, repeat customers, and they're our best advertisement. Feel free to call our references and let them tell you what our services are like.

Typical Day

Our Elk Season begins in September and runs through October. Deer season begins in September and runs through November. We offer September Rifle hunts during the rut. We are allocated a certain amount of tags for September, these hunts fill up fast!

Our October hunts are very promising as well. Many times Elk will still be bugling in early October. If we have snow, it makes the elk move more frequently and are easier to spot. The fires in the last few years have burned many acres creating excellent habitat and creating great hunting opportunities. We find ourselves using spotting scopes more than ever before. This is some of the best spot and stalk hunting in the nation, it is not uncommon to see many trophy class elk/deer during your Hunt.

Sleeping and meals

The country is steep and rugged. Because of its remote location and the ruggedness of the area, you will more than likely not see another hunter.

Besides the Guided Hunts, we also offer Drop Camps. You must supply your own food on this type of hunt. There will be no guide, packer , or cook left in a Drop Camp. We drop you off and pick you up 6 days later.

Camps are clean and comfortable. Depending on location and resources, you’ll find your accommodations in a dome tent or a wall tent. Most camps are made up of 3-4 tents plus a shower tent, and a latrine. We have comfortable cots with pads for your added comfort.

Other Information

Success Rate

After 2 decades in the business, let me address one of the worse questions you can ask an outfitter- "What is your success rate?"

Due to the fact so many of my competitors misrepresent there success rates, it is senseless to answer this question. Many outfitters fog the issue with words like 'hunter opportunity', 'most years', 'generally', 'about' and some just lie. If you choose an outfitter based on his success rate, you probably made the decision to hunt with a liar instead of an honest outfitter.

Our success rate is always as good or better than our competitors and in the same price range.
