This outfitter has picked up a new area that hasn't had any recent pressure in it in years past. They're looking for a few adventurous hunters who wish to explore the area with them while having the opportunity to take quality game in a territory that has been underutilized in recent years. This is a 1:1 fully guided 9 day hunt and a great opportunity to hunt archery pre-rut or hunt rifle during the rut! Early September will be bow only any bull hunts, while the prime rut dates in mid-September and into early October has a 6 point restriction for bulls and a rifle can be used. Hunter will stay in a small private rustic cabin with electricity powered by a generator. Hunter can choose to add a black bear, whitetail, or mule deer to the hunt. Black bear is purely opportunistic and there will be a $500.00 kill fee if a bear is taken.
