Montana Elk Hunting Trips
Montana elk hunting can be a very
exciting and rewarding hunt. Our elk leases consist of
private lands here in Park county region 3, elk hunting
district 315 and 393. Approximately 50% of the elk
harvest in the state of Montana comes from region 3. We
can accommodate a very limited number of trophy elk
hunters each year to provide a quality hunt.
We offer a combo hunt for elk which includes a mule deer or
whitetail deer hunt. This will allow you to harvest a trophy whitetail or trophy mule deer in addition to the elk.
This way, we can also offer you some the finest trophy whitetail deer hunting and trophy mule deer hunting available in the country during your trophy elk hunt.
Our elk hunting is done on semi-rugged to
moderately rolling terrain. Success often depends on
the conditioning of the hunter. For elk hunters, we
have access to private land in one of the best
hunting regions in the state of Montana . Generally
we can access most areas by 4 x 4 vehicle and then
walk by foot to get into areas to glass for elk. We
are there to assist you in the calling, harvesting,
and removal of an elk or any other helpful
suggestions you need in order to make your hunt more
successful. Elk hunting can be challenging,
frustrating, and exhilarating all at the same time.
Elk can travel long distances and can be very
unpredictable at times. We cannot guarantee anyone
an elk, but will try to do everything we can in
order to help you harvest your trophy bull elk, and
encourage the harvest of cow elk to maintain a
balanced, healthy elk herd. You have the option to
use the spot and stalk method or calling, which is
best in late September, or a combination of
both--whatever you prefer. This can be an enjoyable
time afield with a buddy while also having the
chance to harvest a trophy whitetail or trophy mule
deer here in Montana during your elk hunting
The Rut: Where we are located in southwestern Montana at the foothills of the Crazy Mountains, peak breeding activity is observed around the 21st of September on our leases. Some of the
private ground that we have access rights
to hold some great timber for bow hunters trying to call in raging bulls in September. Bugling bulls revealing
their locations are easier for planning set-ups and calling for bow hunters at this time of year. The last two weeks in September are generally good for archery elk hunts during peak breeding activity.
