Wyoming elk rifle hunt offers high success on 5x5 and 6x6 bulls

If you want to do a back-country hunt for trophy bull elk, call us. This outfitter is one of the few who is authorized to maintain an off-road camp in the Wyoming Range near Afton, Wyoming. Most other outfitters must ride back to roads every night. Feb. 1 is the deadline to apply for Wyoming elk permits.

Hunts.Net Customer Pat O'Brien of Minnesota bowhunted with this outfitter. "This was the best hunt I've ever enjoyed," he said. "I saw lots of elk, including several great bulls, and we had lots of bugling action. Even though I didn't get a bull, I highly recommend this hunt. The outfitter put out every effort to help me score. I couldn't have asked for a better hunt."

The outfitter this year offers three different five-day elk hunts: guided, semiguided and unguided. The guided hunt includes a guide per hunter and all the usual services. A semiguided hunt means you'll ride horses to the hunting area, where the guide will drop you off for the day. A non-guided hunt means you'll ride horses into the main camp, from which you'll hunt on foot with no guide. All three hunts include tent quarters in main camp as well as meals, and your meat will be packed to the trailhead, which is eight miles from camp. We suggest the only experienced, successful elk hunters book the semiguided or non-guided hunts.

Typically hunter success runs from 75 to 80 percent on guided hunts with semi-guided and unguided hunts not doing as well. There are a few big bulls in the area, sometimes exceeding 350 B&C points, but most rifle hunters take average 5x5 and 6x6 bulls.
