Elk are perhaps the most impressive antlered animals on earth. Our Elk come from some of the best blood in the world. We have beautiful, large-bodied, heavy-antlered Elk. You simply will not find our caliber of Elk anywhere else and our prices are unbeatable. Why pay thousands to go out west for a trophy bull just to come out empty-handed or with a cow? We guarantee a shot at a magnificent bull elk worthy of any trophy room. If you do not tag-out, you only pay room and board. Elk are hunted beginning in September into January.
