Reviewer Comments: Dave and Abe know how to put you on elk and both live and breathe this stuff. And the elk they put us on were incredible animals. Looking back on my notes of the hunt there were ten bulls called in, fortunately two of which offered shots for both my brother-in-law and myself. My brother-in-law arrowed a real nice bull opening morning and I got a beautiful 7x7 three days later.

Reviewer Comments: I just returned from hunting elk on the 5E ranch(elk creek family outfitters) in north central Montana. A hunt of a lifetime seems appropiate to say without hesitation.This area is remote enough to hold a large herd of elk and it does. It is also surrounded by miles of private property.I shot my bull a 6x7 on the first day with a bow and my friend connected on day four with a 7x7 after having about 8-10 close encounters with some real slammers. It is difficult to put into words the great time we had with good,friendly,knoledgable people who love to hunt as much as i do.We hunted deep coulees mountain meadows and irrigation ponds.Dave and Abe father and son were our hosts,both are bow hunters who call,rattle and know how to get em comin(sometimes on the run). Give me a call if you need or want more information. tom ogorzalek-manahawkin n.j. 609-660-1542

Reviewer Comments: I have been fortunate enough to be a guest on the 5E for the past 3 seasons.I have hunted hard the back country of Montana for 14 years and have never had the opportunity on bulls like I have hunting on the 5E. The bulls are very callable and Abe and Dave have become experts at calling them in. I had many shot opportunities and was able to harvest 2 smaller 6 points in these past years. The ranch holds some true trophies, 340 plus herd bulls have been common each year with a couple that I can only imagine what they might have scored. In the morning just before light you would step out on the deck to hear sometimes 8-10 different bulls bugling. I would recommend this hunt to anyone searching for either a first time bull or a chance at a true Montana trophy. Give me a call if you want any more information about my experience with Elk Creek Family Outfitters. Bart May Bozeman, Montana 406-586-8664

Reviewer Comments: Dave and his son did a great job helping me to harvest my first elk. Felt like I was hunting with old friends. The number of large elk was unbelievable. They did a good job of calling and stalking the elk with several opporunities before I was able to harvest a nice 6x5 elk. If you want to see and hear a large number of elk and have a chance at shooting a real trophy than contact these guys. I plan to return next year and openings are limited. Call for questions.

New Mexico Hunting Information

New Mexico is one of the top destinations for trophy Elk and Antelope hunting. Draw odds can be tough depending on the unit but landowner tags are also available for those who don't draw. Mule Deer are plentiful but generally of average size. Only a couple of units and reservations consistently produce big muleys.

Iowa Hunting Information

Iowa is one of the best Midwestern states for monster whitetail bucks. Non-residents must apply for a tag in their annual drawing. Archery tags are the most sought after and depending on what units you apply for generally take 2-4 years to draw.

more > >

Utah Hunting Information

Utah has recently been outstanding for trophy elk, but the best tags take many years to draw. Utah does have conservation tags available for purchase that allow hunters to bypass the drawing. Given the high demand for these premium tags prices can be high. In the past Utah has been a top trophy mule deer state but recently only a handful of units consistently produce B&C caliber deer.
