Improving your Odds in Rifle Season


  • Heavy Bullets that are made to penetrate thick boned animals. NO BALLISTIC TIPS

  • A light rifle is best for packing into the mountains long distances

  • Gun cover (We use Solo Hunter Brand)


  • The average shot taken in this country is anywhere from 300 to 500 yards across a canyon. We will work our hardest to get you in as close as possible but be comfortable with at least a 300-yard shot. Anything farther will improve your odds of tagging a bull.

  • Our guides will make sure your rifle and caliber bullets will be enough to shoot the distance if a scenario presents itself.

  • Our elk are crossed with Roosevelt elk species allowing them to weigh upwards of 800 lbs.

  • The foot pounds of energy in a bullet should far exceed the weight of an animal.


Long range shooting done unethically gives this practice a bad name. Make sure that the caliber you choose is meant to be shot at a distance.

A 6.5 Creedmoor is meant for target practice and is not a good rifle to shoot an elk in this country at a distance with.

Calibers we Recommend

  • 300 short mag

  • 7 mm

  • 28 nosler
