Bull Elk  

The Bitterroot National Forest is an expansive region, consisting of roughly 1 million acres and is located on the Western half of Montana along the Idaho boarder; the massive area encompassing both the Bitterroot and Sapphire Mountain Ranges. This area is commonly known as the Bitterroot Valley. We are licensed in the following Hunting Districts 204, 240, 250, 260, 261, & 270.

If you are looking for that Western Mountain Hunting Experience! This is a very rewarding but physically demanding hunt, where the better shape you are in then the better your odds of success will be. We utilize 4x4's to reach the trailheads early in the mornings, from there we will head out for the day on either foot or horseback. We typically pack a lunch and spend the day on the mountain but things can vary each day depending on weather and the hunting conditions. This is not a Trophy Bull Elk Hunt, most of our hunters that are presented with shots, are at mostly small to averaged size but respectable bulls in the 200 - 260 range, however there is always a possibility of hunting a larger 260 - 280+ bulls but that caliber of bull tends to be tougher to find. However, all veteran elk hunters know that any bull elk on public land is a good bull. If you're the kind of hunter that enjoys getting off of the beaten path and takes pride in working hard to take home a freezer full of wild meat, than this is the elk hunt for you!
