In mid October we head over to our unit 28 area
for opening season there. We see a lot of elk on these late hunts
and use spot and stalk techniques, along with bugling. November
has us glassing for those big bulls up on the ridges. During this
time the elk
are moving to their winter range and with elk numbers high we offer
an excellent opportunity to harvest a mature bull. Our stock will
get us into this remote country but most of the hunting will be
done on foot.
We offer high country trophy mule deer hunts
in combination with our elk hunts. These late season hunts are a
great time to harvest a trophy buck. The general archery season
in our area is in December for elk and deer (either sex). We hunt
out of the B-C Ranch in comfortable log cabins. The elk and deer
are on their winter range and offer plenty of opportunity to the
Our success rate averages 70% for elk and 80%
for deer. Of the elk harvested 85% are 5x5s or better and of the
deer harvested, 65% score 170 points or better.
Join us in the summer for a wilderness adventure in the Salmon River Mountains.
