Hunting experience at Elk Ridge Outfitters: We hunt the Bridger Range northwest of Bozeman, hunting districts 393 and 312. This 28,000 acre private ranch takes in 2 major drainage’s. The ridges and slopes are covered with scattered timber and numerous basins. Elevations vary from 5,200 ft. to 7,200 ft. The Bridger Mountains of south central Montana offer hunters one of the highest success rates in Montana for elk. Private land and limited access allows us to manage elk numbers and limit bull harvest.
All hunts are seven full days of actual hunting. We run one guide for two hunters with 8 hunters per hunt maximum. You will enjoy the vast amounts of hunting country the ranch offers throughout the week. These elk do not migrate, spending late fall and early winter in high, secluded parks and ridges, where hunting pressure is minimal. This ranch offers 37 sections of this type of country, giving the option of letting some hunting country rest from week to week, and being a major key to our success on good bulls. Most of our hunting is done by glassing, spotting elk at first light, then stalking to within shooting distance. In the evenings we set up where elk or elk tracks were seen and wait for them to feed to us or feed to where a stalk is possible. You always have the option of passing up bulls due to size or difficult shot placement.
The terrain is fairly mild with high, rolling hills. It is important for you to be in good shape, as we hunt the best of the hard to find bulls the ranch offers. The guides that help us are seasoned hunters, and realize the importance of slow, quiet hunts. Although we cannot guarantee everyone an elk, our goal is for you to see game daily and have an enjoyable, successful hunt. 4×4 vehicles are used for getting to different hunting areas of the lease. This amounts to 15 to 45 minutes of traveling before daylight to get into good hunting. Lunches are packed with us daily. Horses are available if the hunting requires their use.
