Archery Hunts
Archery hunters please remember to bring proof of previous archery license. For example, old archery hunting tags from any other state.

You must have these with you on your hunt to buy an archery stamp when you arrive in Montana or purchase your archery stamp online at If you have any questions call 406-847-5593.

Six full days of hunting (early September to late September). Any Archery hunt, I’d highly recommend buying a bear tag, too. The past few years we’ve been seeing an incredible amount of bear during archery season.

Black Bear
Season starts mid September to mid October. Most Fall bear hunts are done in high elevations off huckleberry patches with spectacular views.

Spring bear starts April-15 through May-31 and is done in mountain meadows and grassy hillsides.

Rifle & Deer
Season–(late October to late November). Most elk/deer combos we concentrate hunting elk daily, by doing so run across a whitetail or mule deer.

Hunting begins early December until mid March.

For more information and more trophy shots, call me, email me, or visit our trophy gallery.

Backcountry Camps
Used in archery & rifle. September through November. Call for details.
