Pen and Ink of Bugling Bull Elk


Packing out an elk on mules.


All of our hunts during the archery season and general rifle seasons are semi-guided.  This type of hunt provides a high degree of independence and provides the camp and staff resources that allow you to utilize your time for hunting rather than maintenance.

The Wilderness Base Camp is pre-set.  We staff the trip with a cook/camp tender.  The cook takes care of all kitchen and camp tending duties.  All food is provided.  Our packer will check in with the camp regularly to retrieve game.

The pack trip into camp is done with saddle horse and pack mules.  Camp staff will provide you with advice on navigating the terrain and insight on how wildlife uses the hunt area.  Our semi-guided hunt has been polished with decades of practice.

Who The Semi-Guided Hunt is For

This hunt is designed for hunters who have the experience and skills necessary to hunt in a wilderness setting without the accompaniment of a guide.  All hunting is done on foot.  For safety considerations, and so there is adequate manpower to bone and hang meat, hunters will need to go out in pairs.

Hunters should be in good physical condition, able to dress their own game, and be proficient with GPS and topographical maps.

Care of Game and Packing Meat

It is the hunter’s responsibility to dress, cape, and hang game.  The successful hunter will need to lead the packer back to where meat has been hung and help him load the mules.  Meat will then be packed back to camp.
At the end of the hunt we will pack meat and antlers back to your vehicle at the trailhead.

Personal Equipment

We will send you recommendations on personal equipment when you book your hunt.
Hunters are limited to 65 lbs. of personal gear, including duffel, daypack and sleeping bag.  The weight restriction does not apply to your rifle, bow, or the clothing and boots you wear on the ride into camp.  Going light is an essential part of the wilderness hunting experience.
