Archery Hunting in Montana

Archery elk hunting 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.

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, cabins with beds and propane heat, game retrieval, transportation to and from the Bozeman airport. Price includes your Montana nonresident Big Game or Elk Combination license. You will arrive after 10:00 am of the first day of your hunt and hunt that evening, you will depart after the morning hunt on the last day of your hunt.

Bows should have least 70# draw weight or more. Arrows must weigh at least 500 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 of cow elk call. Archery hunters will be required to shoot a target with a guide before they hunt.
