Deer/Elk Combo

A good outfitter tries to ensure that all their clients are treated respectfully and courteously; their pack and riding stock are well trained, well fed and reliable; their camps are clean, comfortable and well equipped; their staff is knowledgeable and skilled; they observe all game laws; they take good care of the meat they pack out; their operations run smoothly; and God willing, they find game. The rest is hunting, and your definition of success is up to you. This is my commitment.

Combination Elk and Deer Hunts

Area 317 

 brow tine bull elk or mule/whitetail deer buck -antlerless elk by permit only

Our 5 - day base camp hunts take place on the majestic Emigrant Peak located in the heart of the Absaroka Mountain range. (If you look close enough, you'll still see evidence of the gold mining era at the base of this spectacular mountain.)  Tim knows the area very well, being a fourth generation Montanan.  His great-grandparents helped settle this part of the Paradise Valley. 

Our hunting base is located in the middle of the Paradise Valley-through which the Yellowstone river flows and it's bordered by the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness to the East and the Gallatin National Forest to the West.  We usually take 2 hunters per 5-day hunt. This is an Old West Style Hunt and we abide by all fair chase ethics. It is all on public lands.

Bear Paw Outfitters, LLC is under permit with the Livingston, Montana Ranger Yellowstone District USDA Forest Service -Gallatin National Forest.

You will stay  at our base, in a comfortable bunkhouse ( small fridge, microwave, VCR) the bathroom and hot shower are in the basement at the house close by.  Bear Paw Outfitter's hospitality also includes home cooked meals in the morning and evening and a nutritious lunch packed for you to take to the hunting site.

We use only gentle guest horses and mules for our clients to reach the prime hunting areas.  From there we hunt on horses and mules or on foot depending upon the game location.  This allows us to carefully glass the hunting area in hopes of finding that trophy brow tine bull elk or deer.  

Our success over the years has not only been measured in the harvest of fine game animals, but also in our client's memories and satisfaction with all our efforts during each hunt to make the experience truly memorable and successful.  We specialize in providing the hunting experience that many only dream about. This is a physically demanding hunt!

Our guarantee is that you will be fed good and you will be satisfactorily tired at the end of your hunt.
