$6600 SEPTEMBER RIFLE RUT UTAH ELK HUNT HAS 2 OPENINGS
Last fall this outfitter produced 18 bulls for his 20
hunters, the two unsuccessful hunters both had
opportunities. He runs 3 rifle rut hunts on this 15,000
private-acre ranch in the CWMU program allowing rifle hunts
in September. Hunt dates are September 13 to 17, 21 to 25 (2
openings) and 28 to October 2. Bulls normally average in the
280 class on either real nice 5 points or smaller 6 points.
Top bulls can reach 300 inches. Accommodations consist of
travel trailers taken up the mountain before the hunts.
Hunters fly into Salt Lake City and rent a car for the 1 ½
hour drive to camp or airport pickup is available for $200
per person roundtrip. Hunt EK310.
THIS SAME 15,000-ACRE RANCH OFFERS ONE UNGUIDED ELK
MUZZLELOADER HUNT FOR ONLY $3500 PER HUNTER FOR A GROUP OF 4
TO 5. GUARANTEED LICENSE ANY 5 DAYS FROM NOVEMBER 1 TO 10.
Typically the muzzleloader hunt has produced a little better
bull in past years as more elk come onto the ranch. In 2013
the 4 unguided muzzleloader hunters took home 3 bulls. The
guides are sheep fanatics and after the mule deer hunt they
leave to guide sheep hunters, leaving the ranch open for the
muzzleloader elk hunt. Most guys hunt spot and stalk and
take their own quads. They stay in a motel in Evanston only
35 minutes from the ranch. Morgan is about 35 miles away and
has a processing plant to take your bulls. Mostly hunt the
lower elevation at that time of year and it has always been
accessible in the past. In-lines are legal with no bullet or
powder restrictions, but only 1X power scopes or open sights
are legal. This is typically a high success do-it-yourself
hunt with pretty good quality on a 15,000-acre private
ranch. You will need a group of 4 or 5, but you get the
ranch exclusively. Hunt EKMZ310.
SOUTHEASTERN MONTANA MULE DEER/WHITETAIL RANCH ONLY $3250
WITH 2014 OPENINGS
This rancher/outfitter has been 100% on nice mature bucks
averaging 23 to 25 inches with good mass gross scoring in
the 160’s, with the chance on 170 to 180-inch deer. Deer
tags are good for either mule deer or whitetails and he
takes some nice whitetails.
In 2013 he had 3 early season whitetail hunters take 3
bucks, 2 between 145 and 150 and a 165-inch buck. 5 days
guided 2x1 and hunters pay for their own meals and lodging
at the local motel for about $60 per room. Hunt dates are
about October 20 to Thanksgiving. If a hunter draws a
pronghorn tag he can take one the first 2 weeks of the deer
season at no charge. Hunters fly into Rapid City or Billings
and rent a car for the 2 and a half hour drive.
Montana has changed their deer license program, so now you
can typically draw an elk/deer license for $944 and then
apply for the special draw for bull elk in this trophy unit
and it is very unlikely that you would draw so you should
get back $383, so your deer license is only $561. If you do
draw the elk tag this is a great trophy unit and the
outfitter will upgrade your hunt to include a bull on a
$2,500 trophy fee only. Montana now allows you to purchase a
bonus point from June to September for $50. DEER AND ELK
DRAW DEADLINE IS MARCH 15 and pronghorn draw deadline is
early June. Hunt MD427.

ranch is allocated 21 deer tags, but the outfitter only
wants to take about 8 trophy bucks and quite a few
management deer priced at only $2,200. This outfitter
specializes in quality deer and wants to make this ranch
another trophy ranch like his current one. Hunt

CHEAP $2500 TEXAS FREE-RANGE HUNT
This ranch has not been commercially hunted since 2008 and
has been in the family as a working cattle ranch since in
the 1930’s, but the drought forced them to sell off the
cattle in February of 2012. The rancher would like to take a
group of 4 hunters for a 3-day hunt priced at $2,500 each
anytime from early October until the end of February. The
ranch has 8 hunting blinds with spin-cast feeders with most
bucks being mature 8-points in the 110 to 120-inch class and
anticipating larger. Hunters can take one buck of any size
and possibly a doe for meat. The ranch is located in the

ELEPHANT HUNTS ON THE
ONLY $38,000 ALL INCLUSIVE

border a couple years ago with 5 elephant permits. Success
has been 100 percent on bulls averaging in the 35 to 45
pound range, with top end reaching about 55 pounds. We
expect 2015 may be the last year we will be able to hunt
this prime elephant area., due to a large mining operation start up. This is a
10-day hunt priced at a very reasonable $38,000 all
inclusive and at press time there were 2 permits available

spots and covering country by vehicle looking for fresh
tracks then hiking. The last 2 hunters tagged out in 4 days
and 6 days. Hunts normally take place in August and
September with the ranch providing 5-star accommodations.

days. Hippos can also be taken in this area.
RANCHING FOR WILDLIFE
20,000 PRIVATE ACRES
ONLY $4250 GUARANTEED TAG
LOTS OF ELK NEAR 100 PERCENT
2014 is full and 2015 is about 1/2 full already!
If you are looking for a good elk hunt at an exceptional price, please
take a look at this hunt for 2015!! Here is a high success hunt on private land that
has guaranteed licenses issued from the state, no drawings.
This ranch is allocated 42 elk tags from the state
and we expect them to harvest near 100 percent due to the ranch location
in a very high migration route along with the number of resident elk on
the ranch. Success in both
2012 and 2011 were close to 100 percent for both elk and mule deer.
This is a high success hunt priced at a bargain rate
of only $4,250. Since this ranch is in the Ranching For Wildlife Program he can
hunt from September 5 to December 5 with rifles. Most bulls taken will
be a 5x5 averaging in the 230 to 260 class and top bulls reach the
280-inch category. Resident elk are hunted on the early hunts during the
rut. Typically the elk
hunting gets better on the later hunts. Starting about mid-November more
elk move onto the property due to pressure on public land and the normal
migration out of the high country. The ranch is located at about
7500-foot elevation has good access and this is not necessarily a
physical hunt. Hunters come in on Saturday; hunt Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday, and Wednesday (4 days), leave Thursday. New lodge
accommodations, meals, guided 2x1 and airport pickup in Hayden is
can be added to the early elk hunts for only $2,200 and the ranch
produces nice bucks averaging 73 to 78 inches. This hunt is very high
success on all species. Very limited openings. HCU’s Craig Green has
been on this hunt. Hunt EK226.
Below are some client's photos from some recent hunts!
I shot it the first morning of the hunt even though there
was little snow. It was a very good time and good hunt, just like all the other
hunts you have booked for me. My wife also had a good time as a non hunter. She
traveled with us till we crossed the tracks, then stayed with the truck. Again
thanks! Thanks, Gary Heubel (Hunt ML21)
