These archery Montana guided elk hunts are high in the Beaverhead National Forest back country and offer a true wilderness experience!  As we ride horseback to camp, one can understand why so many elk call the Wall Creek area home.  The habitat is perfect for these animals, with large meadows connecting timbered drainages and mountains. 

This is the only area that is closed to motorized vehicles in the Gravely Mountain Range after the 1st week of September.  I believe we benefit greatly, with bull to cow ratios notably higher in this area.  Elk are far more comfortable and harassed much less frequently during the archery season (rut time) as well as the rifle season and tend to gather in large herds.  This is probably the most impressive place I’ve hunted during archery season. 

The large herds of elk will often produce 10-12 mature bulls, creating quite a scene when there are cows in the herd that are done playing hard to get.  I’ve spent many long nights in the wall tents trying to sleep through the songs of wapiti who are “Addicted To Love”.  We concentrate primarily on elk and a good number of black bear however there are some nice mule deer bucks in the area. 

As is the case in most wilderness hunts, being in great physical condition will greatly increase your odds of harvesting a nice bull elk, bear or muley buck.  We can't guarantee success, but you will see plenty of game.  It's not uncommon to see herds of a hundred or more elk at a time and we anticipate daily encounters with elk.  Seeing other hunters is rare and only occasional during the weekends.  

We boast a comfortable wall tent camp at 8,900 feet, with cots and pads, a great cook and an awesome view.  If getting back into wilds of Montana is what you are looking for, this will fulfill your dreams of Elk Country!

Tepee Basin Archery & Rifle Hunts

Blast & Cast Outfitters would like to invite you on a rifle or archery hunt in the beautiful Madison Valley that offers a wide variety of trophy Big Game Animals in a spectacular setting.  Come along and hunt for Elk, Deer (both whitetail and muleys) and Antelope all on the same hunt.  Numerous leases offer a wide variety of excellent hunting opportunities. 

We hunt from stands, spot and stock and creep through the rocks and creek bottoms.  The terrain varies from swampy big whitetail stands, to open antelope prairies and draws, to the elk and muley filled foothills of the Tobacco Root and Gravelly Mountains.  These animals are attracted to the alfalfa in the valley and make daily treks between the bedding areas and the food source. 

These hunts are all fair chase and the animals may come and go as they please. The only thing between the elk and the security of their favorite bedding area is us. You’ll find yourself breathing hard and trembling as we watch them frolic, bugle and call. These animals are vocal from early September to mid-November.  They are receptive to calling during this entire time, but the most effective calling is during archery season, Sept through mid Oct. 

We have recently acquired another excellent whitetail and antelope lease on a beautiful 6,800 acre ranch in the Madison Valley. 2009 was our first year hunting this property and we had a “BLAST”!  We are very excited and pleased to offer this additional property as part of an excellent hunt to share with our guests. We are very successful in all aspects and this hunt can be for all ages.

The hunt can be as physical as you would like to make it, but of course the better physical condition one is in the better chance of being able to get and make the shot! With that said, the patient still hunter is often as successful as the lean & mean walking machine! We encourage hunting with family and especially with kids. We also can acquire a limited number of special big game licenses for your kids for a discounted price on a first come first serve basis.

This hunt does not include lodging and meals, however there are many accommodations that vary in price range and services in the area that we can help you with.
