Any suggestions for elk outfitters for rife season

I am interested in hunting elk in either 2010 or 2011 and would like referrals. My buddies are either broke from the bad economy or not into traveling and so I am on my own. Anyone have a suggestion for an outfitter? Someone you've actually hunted with?

Re: Any suggestions for elk outfitters for rife season

Depending on what you are looking for I would recommend STC Outfitters, Cloud Croft NM, http://www.stcoutfitting.com/ Steve is a hard working, class act that lives where he hunts. Steve's elk hunts are not "pack in" (horses) but you can hear elk bugle from the bunk house. I have a nice 330 6X6, and my dad has a nice 275 5X5 from the same trip.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: Any suggestions for elk outfitters for rife season

You beat me to it, Coonhound. I was going to suggest Larry be contacted. http://www.premierhuntingadventures.com/
I met Larry at the Harrisburg show last year and he does have some great hunts available at great prices. He also sponsors this site.

Let me add a couple of outfitters I have hunted with and would recommend unconditionally.

Garvey Brothers- Website

I hunted with Stan Garvey back in 1999. His outfit is located near the town of Nucla, Colorado, and it is in a limited draw area. That is the only drawback. You have to apply several years to get enough preference points to go, but if you have that kind of time, it is a great hunt in the Uncompahgre of Louis Lamour fame.

Heaven's Gate Outffiters- Website

I have hunted with Darwin Vander Esch and his folks several times. Elk licenses are not draw, but over the counter in Idaho. You can do a horseback trip and hunt out of tent camps or you can do a more "civilized" hunt and stay in their bunkhouse. They do have elk.

Star Valley- website

I have hunted both elk and mule deer with George Herold's outfit. George runs a gun shop in Waynesboro during the off season. His hunting territory is in the Bridger Teton Wilderness, and it is a horseback hunt. The elk hunting takes place in the high country. This is also a true western hunt, but you will stay in camp in comfortable wall tents and be fed in a dining tent.

If you want to hunt elk with a rifle during the rut, maybe British Columbia would be more to your liking. I have never hunted elk there, but there are a few outfitters who have decent elk populations that I do know about.


I have also hunted elk in New Mexico with Milligan Brand Outfitters. If you want my take on them, pm me.

If you want to know anything more about any of my hunts, drop me a pm.

Re: Any suggestions for elk outfitters for rife season

All depends on how much you want to spend. I've hunted in BC and Montana. I was a little dissapointed in the BC one but the Montana one was a hard working outfitter. If you are interested I can give you more details.
