    Wow! When thinking about beautiful country, think here! When considering true openness and untamed wilderness, this is the place! What an amazing hunt we had at the Shults' Cow Camp. Todd and Michelle are absolutely, top-notch people. They run a beautiful ranch on some of the best hunting grounds I've ever seen. The cabin we stayed in was rustic, charming, rugged, warm and made for an excellent place to gather your thoughts for the next morning. Plus, the solar powered water well provided a very well received wash down after a few days of hunting! The cabin is wired for lights although you would need to bring your own generator. We found camp lanterns and headlamps to be sufficient. The terrain is rugged but has several two-track roads/paths that made travel quite easy with an atv. This was my first Elk bow hunt and I came up short. I blame myself, this place has them, along with Mule Deer (we saw several) Black Bear, Mountian Lions, coyotes, etc. etc. Todd & Michelle, Thank You!

    I had the privilege of hunting the Shults' property with my brother-in-law as well as meeting Todd & Michelle during my stay. First, they're an amazing, hardworking family who are 5th generation cattle ranchers. Michelle was fantastic at prompt communication surrounding the planning of our trip and Todd also showed us around when we first arrived. The ranch is absolutely beautiful and offers easy access to thousands of acres of BLM land to hunt in addition to the two sections of private land that makes up the Cow Camp ranch. There's of water in and around the ranch in the forms of stock tanks and one large reservoir that sits on the Shults' property. We stayed in the hunting cabin and used it as our base camp for the trip. While I give our trip a 5-star rating, the hunting cabin is not a 5-star accommodation, which was clearly communicated to us by Michelle prior to our trip. It's a very bare-bones cabin but has a wood-burning stove which is a welcomed luxury on freezing nights and a bunch of wood-framed beds that you can throw your bedrolls on. I'd suggest bringing sleeping mats and/or cots along with your sleeping bags as well as your own plates/cutlery/cups. There's also a solar-powered well right next to the cabin that pumps out delicious drinking water as long as there's sunshine. Also outside the cabin, there's a massive fire pit that we used to cook steaks over and keep us warm while we enjoyed the beautiful, silent, star-filled nights with some bourbons. I'd highly suggest you bring an ATV/side-by-side or horses to fully access everywhere on the ranch and adjacent BLM. Finally, to the hunt. We did an over the counter archery elk hunt which ran us out-of-staters ~$670/tag. We were able to locate elk on our second day by hearing a few different pairs of bulls fighting and doing some light bugling but, of course, they were in the steepest, nastiest timber on the property. Unfortunately, it was full moon 2 nights of our hunt and it turned out that the elk went nocturnal. We'd find steaming elk scat at first light and sat water we knew they were using until dark but to no avail. While we never got our eyes on the elk, we also never saw another hunter & we had a fantastic trip that we'll be talking about for years to come. Thanks, Todd & Michelle, can't wait to book our next trip!
