High Country Elk Hunts:
elk hunting in wyoming 2018

If you have always dreamed of harvesting a bull elk or bettering the one you already have, this is the hunt for you. Natural winter range and various nearby winter feed grounds have provided us with a high population of elk. Our elk hunts take place from high mountain basins to lower timber-covered hills with large meadows.

Archery season opens Sept. 1st and goes through Sept. 25th. With the use of horses and hunting from remote camps we are able to reach far into the backcountry and bugle bulls that don't receive much hunting pressure providing us with many shot opportunities and a high success ratio. This is a super hunt for the serious archer intent on taking a bull with their bow.

Rifle season opens Sept. 26th and runs through October 31st enabling us to rifle hunt a good portion of the rut. Our area holds a large number of elk giving us the ability to show hunters several bulls during their hunt. Good elk numbers with high bull to cow ratios provide us with high quality elk hunting the entire season.

2018 was a great fall hunting elk. We started the archery season off taking 2 nice 6-point bulls first day out. The second week of archery was tough from one of our camps due to the smoke of forest fires burning in the area, this made for some tough hunting. Rifle season started on Sept. 26th with a bang!! Literally. We were 100% success from 1 of our camps that week and the other 2 camps had great success with hunters connecting on bulls and getting shot opportunities. Good weather and lots of sunshine had the bulls talking and lots of action. The season kept on a roll through the second week from our pack in wilderness hunt. The opening week from our drive to camp was a blast with lots of elk in the area. We had 8 clients in camp that week and connected on 6 bulls with everyone having opportunities. If every fall was like the 2018 elk season life would be easy. Good weather and lots of elk. I can't stress enough to be in good shape. The better physical condition you are in the higher your chances at being successful on taking home a bull. We see year after year the clients in better physical shape; able to ride, hike, and shoot straight are consistently more successful on the hunt. A big thank you to everyone: Guides, Packers, Cooks and Clients for a great elk year.

The 2017 elk season was definitely thumbs up and went as good as we could have had with the conditions we faced. With a freak early snow in mid Sept. of over 2 feet in the high elevations many of the elk changed their usual patterns and the opening week of elk was not as we had hoped. In our scouting before the big storm, we had located several nice 340 plus class bulls and we were licking our chops waiting to go after them on opening day. But, the deep snow moved them out of the high basins we had been watching them in and down to the thick timber. Thanks to the effort of the guides putting out 110% we were able to go 75% harvest on bulls the first week. From there things continued to go our way and the opening week from our drive-in camp on October 15th was as good as we have seen going 100% and knocking down some nice bulls. The second week was also stellar and all but 1 hunter tagged out on a bull that week. Thanks to everyone that made 2017 a success.

2015 produced some of the best horn growth and quality bulls we have seen in a long time. This season was like many of the past elk seasons with peaks and valleys throughout the fall. Archery season saw some great action and we took several nice bulls with a couple of real trophies being wounded or missed. Rifle season started off great bagging some nice bulls and harvesting near 100% out of a couple of our camps, but having some tougher luck in other places. (We did have 3 big, 300 plus inch bulls wounded and lost this fall. All 3 were shot with 7mm�s. FYI, in my opinion, if you are hunting elk with a 7mm make sure to have a heavy grain bullet and shoot them through the front shoulder. A 30 cal. is still a guide�s favorite caliber. ) With warm weather and lots of feed and vegetation from a wet summer and spring, the elk were able to spend more time than usual in the timber making hunting tougher than usual. Predators continue to play a roll in western Wyoming and this fall we were affected by some factors that were out of our control. Overall though, it was a great fall and many clients went home with some awesome memories and great bulls.

The 2014 elk season was a lot like the steep mountains that we hunt full of high peaks and a few low valleys but overall we had a great year. Archery season was one of the best we have had with lots of screaming bulls echoing up and down the canyons. The majority of the archers were able to make their shots count and we put several nice bulls on the ground, making for one of the highest success archery seasons we have had. Opening day of rifle season was beautiful, sunny, and a perfect day to be in the mountains hunting elk. With lots of elk being seen and heard we took some great bulls opening day. That night, however, the rain set in and the next 5 days were more like hunting in a monsoon rainforest than high mountains of western Wyoming. The endless downpour of rain made conditions tough for locating and getting on bulls, but we were still able to connect on a few more good bulls before the hunt ended. The remainder of the season was tougher than usual on elk hunting, but with lots of hard work and some luck we continued to find bulls and fill our pack strings with meat and horns. Some awesome bulls were taken this fall with a few being as big of bulls as we take. A big thanks to all our 2014 elk hunters for their hard work and never give up attitudes.

After having a banner fall for elk in 2012, most of the 2013 elk season was at the mercy of mother nature and the elements she can deal out. At daylight on opening day of rifle season it looked more like mid December in the wilderness high country, not late Sept. The 2 Clients I was guiding and myself were at 9,000ft in a blizzard with snow up to our waists at first daylight. Where in years past we had been in herds of elk with rutting bulls echoing up the canyon now we found ourselves in a winter wonderland with blowing snow and low visibility. This was the setup to the rest of our elk season; snow, rain, wet, and dispersed herds of elk made for tough hunting conditions but overall it was a very good season with some awesome bulls taken and some great memories made. The cold wet weather may have also put lady luck on the side of some nice big bulls, fogged up scopes, frozen firing pins or a cold rattled hunter gave several bulls the opportunity to make another season and kept them off the Trophy Mountain website. So far this winter we have seen some quality big bulls and high numbers of mature bulls on the winter grounds giving us the expectation of an awesome fall of elk hunting in 2014.

2012 was one of the best elk seasons we have ever had. The majority of our season was what a hunter dreams elk hunting to be. Great horn growth and ample elk made 2012 a load of fun and one to remember. The addition of our end of the road drive-in camp also gave us an extra boost of great elk hunting as that area doesn�t open until Oct. 15th and has a ton of elk along with some great bulls. In 2012 we were near 100% opportunity on rifle and archery elk hunts and had a very high harvest success with most bulls taken being 5 and 6 point bulls.
