Our hunting areas support a number of elk herds, with trophy elk bulls taken frequently enough on our elk hunts. Our hunting areas also support ample populations of whitetail deer, mule deer and black bear, increasing the chances of success across species. This terrain is more challenging to hunt elk in, no doubt, but we have had good luck in past years and expect that to continue in the future since our elk herds are in better shape today than they have been in thirty years!
With an abundance of Mule Deer in this part of Montana, it is safe to say that Mule Deer is what we do best. We have high success rates on our mule deer hunts and for those deer hunters patient enough to pass up the numerous smaller bucks that they will see, trophy mule deer have been the rule rather than the exception.
For hunters interested in whitetail deer hunting, we have some super bucks and Boone and Crocket will confirm that the Flathead National Forest is one of the largest producers of trophy whitetail deer in the country. We have a variety of choices to hunt Whitetails either in combination with other species or targeting whitetails specifically.
Black bears are plentiful in western Montana and are legal game. The Swan Valley produces the best color phased bears in the state. We hunt black bears in the spring exclusively and in the fall in combination with our other hunts.
Lion Hunts are offered beginning in December and are run out of US Forest Service and private timber leased land east of Kalispell. We utilize experience hounds men and dogs to “tree” cats. This is a unique experience and we have great cats. It will be necessary to apply for a special permit in either Hunting District (HD) 102, 103, 120 or 130. We aslo guide in district 132 which is still open quota.
