Wyoming has often been called the first state in outdoor America. We have unbelievably blue skies, awe-inspiring natural wonders, landscapes that can be found nowhere else in the world, and oh yes, we have been called a hunters paradise.
Wyoming is a place where you can still glimpse the true American west. It is the state where the myth of the cowboy was born and cowboys still exist. It is a land of wide-open spaces, and exciting places. When it comes to national parks, forests and monuments, Wyoming boasts a number of firsts, including America’s first national monument, Devils Tower. Wyoming is also home to the nations’ first national forest, Shoshone National Forest, and Yellowstone National Park, the world's first national park.
Our ranch is one of the oldest in Wyoming, founded in 1878 along the Bozeman Trail. The 88 Ranch became famous for its bucking horses and was a welcome stage stop for many weary travelers. Herds of longhorn cattle were trailed past the ranch headed to Montana and herds of buffalo and packs of gray wolves were plentiful. The 88 Ranch has a colorful history and we invite you to come and experience true western hospitality at its finest. We are forever west.
88 Ranch Outfitters has been outfitting hunters since 1981. We are a family run guiding and outfitting operation. We hunt on 90,000 acres of private land. We offer hunts that are second to none. Keeping tabs on the game movement throughout the year and knowing where the trophies are is our business. We offer quality hunts for trophy animals, while offering special management hunts. Our goal is to provide everyone with the opportunity of a quality hunting experience. We pride ourselves on our 100% success rate. Our game herds are in great shape, and now is the time to book your hunt!
Our camp is located at our ranch headquarters 40 miles north of Douglas, Wyoming in the middle of the Powder River Basin. The nearest airport is the Casper/Natrona County International Airport (CPR). Both Delta and United serve this area. Some hunters choose to fly into Denver International Airport (DIA), located in Denver, Colorado. DIA is approximately 270 miles from the ranch, and will be a little less than a five hour drive. You provide your own transportation to and from the ranch.
Wyoming has been called the most uncomplicated 98,000 square miles in America. So why not make a simple choice and come and see it for yourself- you won’t be disappointed!
