Montana Outfitters - Guided Elk Hunts

 2009 Elk Rifle Hunting in the Last Best Part of the Last Best Place

MontanaOutfitters.Com (MOCom), affiliated with the Horse Prairie Ranch (HPR) in southwest Montana, is the only overnight USFS outfitter with authorization to conduct overnight guided hunts into tens of thousands of acres of roadless wilderness areas of the Beaverhead National Forest, above the HPR.

MOCom guided elk hunts average 5 days of hunting in remote and rugged mountains, with elevations ranging from 6,500 to 9,800 feet.  Hunters are welcomed at the LakeSide Lodge at the HPR for orientation and to prepare for a 2 hour pack trip to a remote backcountry camp.  MOCom guests hunt on horseback and on foot from a backcountry camp.  MOCom fair chase group hunts result in kill success rates of between zero and 100%, depending upon weather, luck, and/or a hunter's physical abilities.  MOCom advises all hunters to prepare for a MOCom hunt by rigorous exercise in advance of the hunt.  This will not only contribute to a hunterís health but also increase the chances of a successful hunt.  Our guarantee is for a memorable hunt!

Hunters arrive on Saturdays, hunt from the backcountry camp or the LakeSide guest area all week.  Departures will be the next Saturday morning from the LakeSide area.  The HPR lodges are located on HPR property next to the USFS border and offer private rooms.  The MOCom backcountry camp is located approximately 2 hours by horseback from the LakeSide area.  The camp features white wall tents, wood stoves, air-mattresses, metal bunk beds, and carpet.  ATV hunting is not allowed from the Backcountry camp.

MOCom provides one experienced guide per two hunters.  The guides know the country and are very skilled hunters.  All hunting is only on public lands (BLM and USFS).
