Only Hank and Jamie have hunted the ranch for the past 15 years. Approximately 200 head of elk make the ranch their sanctuary from other hunters in the surrounding National Forest in the fall.
We offered opportunities for a trophy elk hunt of a lifetime in 2021 for the 2022 season to a very limited number of special guests. Demand exceeded the numbers we were willing to take by 300%. Tags were available over the counter but sold out the day they went on sale at 10 am on December 10, 2021, for the October 15 to 22, 2022 hunt. Only three of the six who wanted to hunt were successful. The others have deer tags and will be hunting and I am sure will be back when successful in a future elk tag sale.
If you would like to hunt with us in 2023 let us know before the end of November 2022. We have a strong preference for families hunting together. That makes families stronger and our nation stronger.
Arrive on October 13 for two days of scouting before opening day on October 15. Hunt until all tags have been filled or the season ends. That has taken two days since we started hunting the ranch except for one year when wolves and cougar were on the ranch. We will prepare our own meals just like a real backcountry hunt except we will be staying in the Lodge. $8,900 per person hunting. $390 per day for anyone joining but not hunting. $3,000 deposit per person to confirm your hunt.
This trophy bull will be back again this season.
We will make final decisions by December 6, in time for the tag sale on December 10.
