Additional Big Game Hunting Information
TEPEE BASIN ARCHERY & RIFLE HUNTS
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 the 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. 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, great food 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!
PRIVATE LEASE HUNTS
Blast and 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 filled foothills of the Gravelly Range. 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.
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.
