There is a group of 4 of us that are looking to do a self guided drop camp hunt next fall. We are looking at either Colorado or Montana based on tag availability. Has anyone done this type of hunt or have any suggestions on outfitters?

You doing archery or rifle ? Can be a big difference between resident and migrating herds.

I did a drop camp hunt with Broken Arrow Outfitters out of Alder Montana. Erwin and Sherry run a great operation and are in the heart of the largest elk herd in Montana. Check their website, references, and they are at the Harrisburg Show main hall. Good luck!

We are looking to do a rifle hunt and I think there is mule deer overlap with certain areas in both states.

For Montana or Idaho you can do a lot worse that this outfit.
They offer drop camps in both Montana and Idaho.
I know this outfit has some good locations as I hunt around their areas in Montana and have spent some time scouting close to their Idaho camps. Keep in mind you will pack in away from the day foot hunting crowd.
I am considering a drop camp from them this year in Idaho as they offer an earlier season that will extend my hunting adventures.
Good Luck
Bitterroot.

Try WTR Outfitters in Montana!
We use to do drop camps for the early rifle bugle season in September. Not sure if they still do them, but it was some good hunting in the Bob Marshall!

I understand WTR was sold a few years back. I need to look into them and see if they still offer the drop camp option?

Yes, I think they were sold! It's been a few years since I've been there but it's my understanding that their operation is run the same as the Hooker's ran theirs.

You are right. They are still in business.
They had a good reputation as an outfitter for years and years.
Assuming the new management has a similar program… a guess of theirs would not be disappointed.
I did not notice the drop camp option in their hunting menu. I am not saying it is not offered I just could not find it on my search.
But once again this outfit was known around town as one of the best.
I week in the Bob…..That is not hard to take as well.
