MEDICINE LAKE OUTFITTERS is a wilderness expeditions outfitter specializing in hunting and fishing pack trips by horse and mule into the backcountry of the greater Yellowstone region.  We have been in business continually since 1974.  Our base of operations is located west of Bozeman Montana along the Gallatin River.

During the summer months we guide fly fishing expeditions in Yellowstone Park.  From September through November we outfit elk and deer hunts in the mountain ranges to the north and west of the Park.  Montana elk hunting is our specialty.

You will find our staff competent, friendly, and knowledgeable; concerned with your safety and the ultimate success of your hunt.

Our goal is to provide you with the finest quality backcountry hunting experience in an atmosphere of relaxed western hospitality.
