With the end of the 2016 Elk Hunt Season quickly approaching for many, and for some has already come to an end. Now is the time to start planning your 2017 Elk Hunt!
The deadline for your 2017 Elk Hunt application is January 31, 2017. We’d like to present to you the 3 Hunts we have to offer:
Hunt 1 – River bottom Elk
This hunt is a limited quota area. It will take preference points to draw this area. Over the last ten years in this camp we have had a success rate of 37 out of 38 trophy bull hunters. This area has easy terrain making it one of the easiest and most successful hunts in the State. This area has a high bull to cow ratio making it an archer’s dream. You will be spending a lot of time glassing rolling hillsides and hay meadows looking for the right trophy bull.
Hunt 2 – Foothill Elk
This is a General area making tags more available then limited quota but you will still have to draw this tag. Deadline is January 31 of each calendar year. This ranch is easy to hunt we have four wheel drive access to all parts of the ranch. It has gentle rolling hills covered in ponderosa and lodge pole pine. The elk herds range in sizes of 5 to 250 depending on the time of year you hunt them. These elk usually stay in the meadows during the morning and evenings and head up to the dense pine for mid day cover.
Hunt 3 – Mountain Elk
This ranch is new to the Tyler Sims Outfitting operation. 2012 was the first year we guided on this ranch and with 100% success on trophy bulls we could not let this ranch go. Before 2012 this ranch had not been hunted for 15 years. You will again see herds from 5 to 250 depending on the time of the year you book your hunt. We only offer a limited number of hunts on this ranch. This ranch is the most physical elk hunting ranch I have to offer but the rewards are worth it. You will be glassing rolling foothills, timber parks, and two different drainages. This hunt is also a tent camp. You will be staying in wall tents and guides will prepare meals for you on the spot. Once you fill out you will be transported to our main lodge.
