After 2 decades in the business, let
me address one of the worse questions you can ask an outfitter-
"What is your success rate?"
Due to the fact so many of my
competitors misrepresent there success rates, it is senseless to
answer this question. Many outfitters fog the issue with words
like 'hunter opportunity', 'most years', 'generally', 'about'
and some just lie. If you choose an outfitter based on his
success rate, you probably made the decision to hunt with a liar
instead of an honest outfitter.
Our success rate is always
as good or better than our competitors and in the same price
Most hunters don't
realize how precious elk really are. Let me compare Wisconsin
deer hunting vs. Montana elk hunting. Montana has 160,000 elk.
Wisconsin has 1,800,000 deer. That's Eleven times more game!
Montana is 2.5 times larger than Wisconsin, which means it is 27
times harder to kill an elk in Montana then it is to kill 1 deer
in Wisconsin. Wisconsin hunters kill 330,000 deer annually,
which means if Montana elk hunters were to enjoy that same
success, we would have to kill every elk in the state plus
170,000 beef cows!
When you come out elk hunting,
please bring realistic expectations.
We want all of our potential hunters to understand that:
~Every year we send hunters home with nothing more than fond
memories and every year we send hunters home with the trophy of
~Taking a Bull Elk on fair chase terms is one of the finest yet
hardest trophies to acquire in North America.
~We have had hunts with 100% kill and others with 0%; kill rates
vary greatly with weather, physical ability and hunters
willingness to hunt every day of their hunt.
~All of our hunters pay for a first class fair chase hunt and
all hunters receive a first class fair chase hunt.
