We provide limited “guided” hunting opportunities. We believe that limiting the number of guided hunts will continue our long history of successful trophy quality harvests. Our hunt success is enhanced by the large “closed road” areas and very limited access. There are some areas open to ATVs nearby, but be sure to respect the rules of the forest by staying on designated roads for such use.
We hunt Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope, Moose and an assortment of other game animals in the Hoback region of Wyoming. This remote, rugged back country is known for producing top quality trophies. A quick glance through any of the North America big game record books will make you realize that you will be hunting in a premier area, with the very real potential of taking a record book animal. Elk Hunts for our rifle combination hunts are held when many of the bulls are still bugling. Bow hunters will also enjoy great hunting opportunities during the prime weeks of early bugling.
Sublette County is home to the largest Mule Deer herd in Wyoming. Trophy class bucks are taken every year from the Hoback region. Deer season begins in mid September and runs into early October, providing ample time to harvest a trophy class buck.
At Big Country Outfitters, our main emphasis is on providing a few “quality” guided hunts, rather than a large number of mediocre hunting opportunities.
Our hunts are designed for a single party of guided hunters. Since we limit the number of hunters, you can count on getting special attention, great service and an experienced guide who knows the area. Our guides spend much of the summer scouting for the fall season.
All non-resident Big Game hunting in Wyoming is regulated by a draw system. When you apply you will have a choice of “Special” or “Regular” draw. Entering the “Special” draw costs more but it increases your chance of being drawn if you do not have any preference points built up.
If you prefer to hunt on your own, we also provide the option of choosing between one of our comfortable “Drop Camps” or cabin rentals. Our Drop Camp services include packing you and your gear, in and out of your hunt area. You will be provided with a tent, stove, firewood, propane, lanterns, table and chairs, cots and all necessary cooking utensils. You must, however, provide your own food and personal items.
Cabin rentals during hunting season are also available at the ranch. With this option you can choose to cook for yourself or join others for home cooked meals at an additional cost. You are welcome to bring your own horses if you want.
Transportation is available to and from the Jackson Hole Airport, or there is a shuttle available directly from the Salt Lake City airport.
