With over 30 years of guiding under his belt this outfitter is the professor of outfitters. He comes from a line of outfitters that date back for 3 generations in 1867 where his great grandfather started in Wyoming living off the land. I have one important philosophy that I learned from over 30 years as an outfitter and guide, and I always keep it in mind : to give you the best hunting experience possible. Each hunter is greeted with a smile and lots of enthusiasm, because we want you to leave with good memories and new friends.
The ranch has over 12,000 acres of both private and lease land, and the area has abundant wildlife, including deer, elk, antelope, moose, mountain lion and bear. We conduct all our hunts on our private land and also the BLM, the Medicine Bow National Forest, the Platte River Wilderness area and the Savage Run Wilderness area of Southern Wyoming. Transportation during the hunt usually includes a combination of 4WD, horseback and walking. We have worked hard to build our reputation for success and we will work harder to you to keep that record standing.
All hunts are one guide for every two hunters with the exception of Mountain Lion Hunts which have one guide per hunter. We have a number of different hunts, different seasons and different weapons to be able to almost cover every date and animal.
Wilderness Elk Hunts
We can hunt elk right from the front door of our ranch house. The elk migrate down to our hay meadows in September during the archery season, and we usually have upwards of 200 head living on the ranch by the time rifle season begins. We have comfortable accommodations at our ranch house, with room enough to sleep eight. Meals are served family style, and the view from our living room is breathtaking! If you want a real wilderness experience, we also hunt in the North Platte and Savage Run Wilderness areas by horseback. My father built a log cabin years ago between the two wilderness areas, and we will set up a base camp there, and hunt by horseback during the day. This camp has all the comforts of home, with a kitchen set up in the cabin for meals, and large wall tents with stoves in them for sleeping. We generally limit the number of hunters in camp to no more than six. For all of our elk hunts whether on the ranch or in the wilderness area, there is an experienced cook on hand to prepare all your meals, and we always have a minimum of one guide for every two hunters. We hunt early in the morning and late in the evening, with sack lunches provided during the day. Most of the Hunting takes place between elevations of 8,000 to 10,000 feet. We usually average about an 80% success rate on our elk hunts.
All the elk areas that we hunt are a general license area, and drawing odds for the "special" licenses are usually 80% or better.
We hunt deer on our 12,000 acre ranch in the Snowy Range Mountains near Saratoga Wyoming. This area has historically been a real producer of Boone and Crockett quality trophy Mule Deer bucks. Most of our ranch hunts are conducted by 4wd vehicle, and accommodations are at the ranch house, which comfortably sleeps eight people. Meals are served family style, with sack lunches provided during the day. If you would rather have a real wilderness experience, we also hunt from our cabin located between the Platte River wilderness and the Savage Run Wilderness areas, where we will travel on horseback into some very rugged terrain. Our camp has all the comforts of home, with the same set - up as our wilderness elk hunts. We limit the number of hunters at our wilderness camp to no more than six. For all of our deer hunts, the price includes all meals and lodging, and we always have a minimum of one guide for every two hunters. Deer hunts can also be hunted in combination with either elk or antelope just be certain to check with us on the hunt dates. Our success rate for deer is usually about 90%. We hunt region D for deer, and the drawing success odds for the "special" licenses are usually 100%.

Bucks are plentiful, and this is the perfect hunt for a first - time hunter who is just being introduced to the sport of hunting. Our antelope hunts are conducted by 4WD vehicle, and accommodations are at the ranch house. The price of a three day hunt includes all meals and lodging, and we always have one guide for every
