Default Live Montana Elk Hunt

I can't wait any longer to start this thread, I'm flying out tomorrow to hunt with my buddy Forrest with Montana Trophy Outfitters for 10 days. We will be hunting 126,000 acres and we will be the only two on the ranch. I don't think I would be able to afford this but he cut me a killer deal for booking 3 years in a row.

There is a house on the ranch with running water so it won't exactly be roughing it, and I'm packing a little heavy this trip. We are planning on spending the night on the mountain if necessary. I've also got an Antelope tag in hand. Should be a great 10 days!!

So sorry that you will have to stay in such squalor prior to your departure to the entire 126000 acre place. Good luck.

Little back story. My friend Forrest was a guide in training for an outfit I used 6 years ago. He broke off shortly after and started his own outfit and has been very successful. We stayed in touch after that first trip and have fished together quite a bit, but haven't hunted together since that trip. He cut me this deal and I jumped on it for the next 3 years. So technically it's "guided" but really it's just two buddies hunting together on the land he has leased. If we tag out we plan to do a lot of looking and trying to get the rest of his season lined up.

I was going to take my fly fishing gear too, but if we tag out early I'm going to have my antelope tag. Also Forrest asked if we could split up after I tag out and we could try to find some more bulls for his next group. To top that off, his dad is guiding the Montana Bighorn Governors tag holder so I'll have the opportunity to help glass for him after the 5th of Sept.

Packed and ready. I know I'm going in way heavier than the last few years, but no reason to be without when we have a house to stay in and store gear.
