How We Hunt Because of our proximity to the boundary line of Yellowstone National Park​,​ we hunt mornings and evenings​,​ allowing the elk to bed during the day. We access hunting areas primarily by truck and hiking. We sometimes use horses snowmobiles and four wheelers to pack out meat. Depending on the spot you’ll be hunting​,​ you’ll depart from camp an hour-half an hour before shooting light. You will return to camp for midday lunch and to plan your evening hunt. You’ll return to your hunt in early afternoon and hunt until dark. Then you’ll return to camp for dinner. Between hunts you can lunch​,​ nap​,​ fish​,​ visit nearby Gardiner or Yellowstone Park. We do hire a camp cook​,​ who will provide a light breakfast spread​,​ lunch and dinner for you and your fellow hunters. If you have any specific dietary needs​,​ please let us know in advance and go over your dietary needs with our cook when you arrive. Meat Processing Policy Successful hunters must pay for processing of their game meat even if they donate it to a local food bank in the area. Please enjoy your hunt and take responsible shots. Fishing The Yellowstone River (considered one of the premiere trout fishing rivers in the world) is on your doorstep. Numerous streams​,​ creeks​,​ and lakes will test your skill and offer a variety of rewarding challenges.
