Wheaton Creek Ranch - a great place to hunt Elk

Wheaton Creek Ranch offers a fantastic guided elk hunting experience to the veteran hunter and novice alike. The varied terrain allows for almost any style of hunting. We had 100 percent success killing five elk in three days and then took advantage of the packing facilities to do our own butchering. Bottom line everyone went home with loads of meat and great memories. Kathy the hostess/cook kept us in good food while Dennis the guide kept us on point until the tags were filled and then helped us with the finer points of butchery. I could not have asked for a better experience.

I had a great hunt that ended with a nice 5 by 5. I did not use a guide as I have hunted this ranch for many years and know it well. The food was top notch. First class meat storage and processing.

2014 elk hunt

This was my third hunt at wheaton creek ranch, I greatly enjoy the hunt and have harvested an elk every year. This is not an easy hunt, you will have to be able to scout and track these animals.
