A great opportunity to go on a once in a lifetime hunt after you draw your Henry Mountains Bison tag! This outfitter is available for all season hunts. All meals and lodging will be provided for this hunt. Depending on the season drawn, weather may determine where hunter stays. If weather is too cold for a trailer, outfitter will supply a motel in the closest town (about a one hour's drive to the hunting area). This outfitter has had 100% success on mature bulls the last 10 years. Outfitter also does have permission on private land in the unit. Once a bull is down, if horses are needed for the pack out, outfitter will supply them with no additional cost. This unit holds roughly 300 bison. The terrain can be challenging and hunter's must be ready to hike. Outfitter will supply ATVs and side x sides for field transportation but there are areas that will need to be accessed by foot. Hunter will need to be prepared to glass in mornings and evenings and to close the distance when the target bull is located. Non-hunters can accompany for a small fee.
