Bow hunting for Antelope starts in late August, deer and elk starts September 1st. The antelope hunting is from permanent blinds by water holes, with shots of 12-20 yards. The deer hunting is from blinds and stalking. We hunt creek bottoms, side draws, and the “Pine Ridge”, an area with lots of pine trees and natural cover. Elk hunting is from stands, stalking and bugling.
Our on your own rifle antelope hunts include the use of our lodge and facilities and three days of access. Hunters provide their own food and drink, we do not offer any services with this hunt it is completely on your own. Groups of eight or more have the option of hunting mule deer at an additional cost.
Wyoming Weather is unpredictable, you should prepare for anything from snow to 90 degrees. Usually August through October provides good hunting weather.
A deposit is required to book a hunt, with balance due upon arrival (No personal checks). Deposit will be refunded if unsuccessful in drawing tags.
All guided hunts include lodging in our comfortable, bunkhouse complex, guide service, home cooked meals, and lots of good western hospitality.
You provide your license, hunting equipment, and personal gear and transportation to and from the ranch. We have a walk-in cooler and a chest freezer for those that want to process their own game meat, or we will take game to a processing facility for you. Expect to pay approximately $150 per animal at the processor.
Wyoming is on a computer drawing system for your license. Applications for Elk have to be submitted in January. Filing dates for Deer and Antelope are January 1 thru March 15. If you missed the application deadline, leftover licenses for deer or antelope are normally available for purchase after the initial drawing. We plan on having a 100% draw for antelope and deer tags, and expect about a 20% chance of drawing an elk tag.
