Big Game Hunting 

When the leaves start to rustle,  the nights get frosty and the elk begin to bugle, we turn our full attention to hunting.  Our main hunting camp is on the Big Salmon River, in the heart of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, 24 miles from the end of the road.  Area 150 is one of the few to allow rifle hunting for elk during the peak of the rut.  We also offer hunting for Mule Deer, Black Bear, Mountain Goat, and Mountain Lion.

When the leaves start to rustle, the nights get frosty, and the elk begin to bugle, we turn our full attention to hunting. We hunt the vast Bob Marshall Wilderness area. The country is remote, rugged and sometimes steep. Since 1987 our reputation has steadily grown for smoothly run fair chase hunting. No corners are cut when preparing for your hunt, you will be pleasantly surprised at our clean comfortable base camp 24 miles from the end of the road. We serve excellent meals, use the finest equipment, and provide excellent horses raised on our ranch for your comfort and safety. From camp we travel by horseback to different drainages during each hunt. This enables us to access some of the most remote and beautiful area's in the country. It also allows us to accommodate people of mixed ages and physical abilities.

Area 150 is one of the few to allow early season rifle hunts for trophy bulls during the peak of the rut, enjoy hunting bugled in bulls from 5 to 40 yards in one of the largest elk herds is the country. We hunt 9 major drainages on these early season hunts, from dark timber, to open slides and meadows, to high open country and everything in between. Elevations vary from 4400 ft to over 7000.

We also offer hunting for Black Bear, Mountain Goat, and Mountain Lion. 

 Each hunter is responsible for all license fee's, and any taxidermy, meat processing and shipping.  Please call or write if you have any question's or need further information.  We hope you will join us for that special hunting trip you are looking for.

Packing For Your Hunt:

Below is a list that might be helpful as you get ready for your hunt. Please bear in mind as you go through this, a packer’s dream is a client with two army sized duffel bags and a rifle (we provide scabbards) with a combined weight of 70 to 80 pounds. Keep out a warm coat, and rain gear to be worn or tied to the back of your saddle. When you arrive, please have everything you need for the trip into the backcountry packed separately from your street clothes you will need when you return. This way we can pack everything up the night before we go in and get an early start the next morning. Please remember to let us know of any fragile or breakable items so proper precautions can be taken when we pack them.
