A true horseback Elk hunt for Trophy Quality Bulls. A first season or second season elk hunt in one of Oregon's Big Bull units. Average harvest size of bulls are mature 5 & 6 point bulls scoring 280-300 B&C. Largest bulls busting the 350 B&C mark. We average 90% opportunity on mature bulls and a 75% harvest record. Average distance of shots are in the 300 yards range. With the use of horses and the wide variety of land topography we are able to assist and accommodate a wide range of physical mobility and hunting skillsets. This is a hunt that is as much about harvest as it is about an opportunity to experience the true nature of a traditional old time horseback elk hunt. Meals and lodging provided as well and quality guides with years of experience in the area. Guaranteed tags available for non-residents though the Oregon Outfitter Tag Program. Small camp sizes range from 6 hunters and under. This is a hunt you will look back on for year to come. I also have private land hunt
