Archery info and photos
Archery hunting for elk is one of the most exciting hunts a bow hunter can go on! It is a very high quality hunt with lots of action. Bull elk are in the rut and that means bugling. It is not uncommon to hear 4 to 5 bulls bugling in one canyon. Bulls can come charging in , or it may take 2 to 3 hours to finally call a big bull into bow range.
The elk in our area do not migrate, they remain here year round. They are scattered from the valley bottoms at 5000 feet to the mountain ridges, the highest elevations averaging about 7000 feet. Logging trails and hiking trails penetrate certain areas allowing the hunter easier and faster access. There is no doubt in our minds this is one of the most exciting and rewarding hunts an archer can go on.
Our archery hunts are a 1 on 1 full service hunt that includes home cooked meals,
bedsand propane heat, game retrieval, transportation to and
should have least 70# draw weight or more. Arrows must weigh at least
grains. We don’t allow mechanical broad heads that open on impact; we’ve
lost too many animals with these. A good heavy 3 or 4 bladed broad head is
recommended. We don’t
recommend carbon arrows; the material they’re made of doesn’t allow a bad
hit animal to heal. Over
draws are ok. Learn to use a hands free type cow elk call. Archery hunters will
be required to shoot a target with a guide before they hunt.
