ELK

Big Buck Outfitters, Inc. currently offers archery elk in Montana in a couple of different areas and we are very excited about our current Wyoming elk opportunities. The trophy quality is good to excellent, and it is realistic to hope for a 100 percent opportunity for success on mature bulls.

The Montana elk operation focuses on the area southeast of Billings. Big Buck Outfitters, Inc. hunts an area of about 15,000 acres with a resident herd of elk. No rifle hunts for bull elk are offered on this private property. The elk have been underhunted for years here, and have the genetics to get big – a Big Buck Outfitters, Inc. client got to within 80 yards of a 400+ bull on this property in 2003. Hunters should expect to be into elk every day and see 350 class bulls during the hunt. In 2008, a client harvested a 380 class bull that would have made 400" had the sides matched up! Big Buck Outfitters, Inc. asks that clients let immature bulls pass in favor of harvesting one of the mature bruisers on the property.

Big Buck Outfitters, Inc. has been developing a unique opportunity for private land elk hunting for years. This elk hunt takes place on private land during September with a rifle in Wyoming. The hunt is on a general Wyoming elk tag, and the Special tag for general elk has been 100% draw with no points for years now. So, it is possible to hunt elk during the rut with a rifle on a 100% draw tag. We have been developing food plots and water sources on these properties to attract and hold elk. These are a wary elk and not easy to hunt, but this should be high opportunity for success on 5x5 or better bulls.

Big Buck Outfitters, Inc. took a big step in developing Wyoming elk hunting opportunities by acquiring a Forest Service Permit in the Big Horn Mountains a few years ago. That country produces great bulls year in and year out, and 2011 was the first year of really capitalizing on the Big Horn Mountain lease. We were 5 for 6 on six-by-six bulls, and proved that the elk hunting on our permit was as good as we had hoped. The biggest bull harvested was 380” class and should net B&C after the drying period. The permit encompasses elk Areas 38 and 39. Although there is a random draw option, guaranteed draw is assured if the client plans the hunt and acquires points ahead. Generally, 2-4 points allows you to realize your elk hunting dreams with us. The preference point system ensures limited hunter impact and excellent quality bulls. The hunting area is huge, and the terrain can be rough and remote with amazingly beautiful vistas. Physical conditioning is important for this hunt. Lodging is either wall tents we can drive to or a motel high in the mountains – the choice is the client’s and can change in the middle of a hunt. Spike camping for a night or two sometimes helps the opportunity for harvesting a big bull, and is an option that is up to the individual client. Now is the time to start acquiring your preference points in Wyoming, so call for assistance in the process.
