Our whitetail hunts are tree stand hunts over feed piles and scent scrapes. Stand locations will be established months in advance to have a full log book of information on the inventory of bucks available to each stand. We will show you the folder of trail camera pictures for your stand prior to sitting, then you decide what buck you want to target.
Our stands are safe, solid, and ready to hunt when you arrive. We use all types of tree stands from ladder stands to hang on stands and self climbers. Each stand has its own benefits and we use whatever is needed to accomplish as close to perfect stand location as possible.
Our mule deer hunts are typically spot and stalk, but it is very common to have mule deer frequently visiting out mountain whitetail stand locations, so we will often have opportunities at both whitetail and mule deer on the same stand. Our seasons overlap during some of our season and we coordinate trip dates to include both species.
We have Rocky Mountain Elk herds roaming in and out of our feeding stations as well and we can also combo deer and elk together because the seasons overlap for a few weeks out of the season. Most units are any antlered bull.
During our September hunts, black bear and cougar is also open the entire month with any legal weapon. It is common for us to target bears in the morning, with a bow or rifle, then sit in a tree stand for deer and elk in the evening.
We are not only in a target rich environment but we also have high quality of game in all species. Bucks over 150", bears over 350 lbs, and bull elk breaking 300" are no surprise when we see them on trail camera. You will not sit a tree stand unless it has a buck at least pope and young quality. It is your decision what you choose to harvest, as long as it is legal.
We have between 30-40 stand locations and no more than 4 hunters in camp at a time. We typically book 12-14 deer hunters a year. We are very fortunate to not have to hunt our stands every week of the season. We book two weeks in September, two weeks in November and one week in December. We're able to avoid back to back deer hunters because our moose season fills the gaps. Over hunting stands is not an issue in our operation and returning clients are happy to tell you that.
Hunts are $4000.00 for a 6 day hunt and includes lodging and meals.
For combo trips, after the first animal is harvested, it is an additonal $500 to continue hunting dor another species.
For example, if a hunter harvests a deer, that us included in the original price. To continue hunting for elk or bear it is an additional $500. If an elk is harvested, it is then another $500 to continue hunting for black bear.
Turkey season is April 15th to may 30th. Call or e-mail for openings. It is $1200 for 3 days all inclusive with 2 bird limit.
All hunters choosing to stay at our lodge will have a bed to sleep in (no bunk beds), two people per room, living area, washer/dryer, and home cooked meals.
All Deer, Elk, Bear, and Cougar tags are over the counter and can be purchased on arrival or prior to the hunt. Tags and licenses are not included in the price of the hunt.
