Our base camp is nestled in the heart of the elk’s wintering range, and let’s us get close to our quarry by 4 WD and two feet. Our Rifle hunts are conducted from the warmth and comfort of the lodge, as the heavy snows in the high country move the elk down to lower ground. Our lodge-based hunts combine the mobility and the flexibility to hunt the entirety of our 187+ square miles permit area.
Over the past 40+ years, Stockton Outfitters’ guides have led hunters to scores of record elk in the Big Hole Valley. The Bull quality and genetics in our area has remained consistent and our Rifle Elk Success Rate averages 30%. Our herds maintain a 30% Bull to cow ratio, which is among the highest in the Country.
Combination Elk/Deer licenses are available through the State of Montana. Both mule deer and white tails range the same areas as our elk so opportunity to take a second trophy is high as well. Stockton Outfitters charges NO TROPHY FEES and allows hunters to submit for Elk-B (cow) and Deer-b (doe) licenses at no additional charge.
