Elk Hunting Guide & Outfitter

As a Outfitter/guide service we offer Elk hunts, We do not sell elk. All Elk hunts are fair chase, wild Elk hunts. Shooting skills are very important and Archery or rifle hunting clients that wound Elk will notch your tag while hunting at our camps.  We do not offer any high fence or game farm type hunts. Licenses are sold by the respective state and the cost is the hunters responsibility. We will help you with the licensing process. Hunts are 2 hunters per guide unless specified.

Success rates are VERY client dependent. Clients must be able to ride a horse and that includes mounting and dismounting by themselves, hiking in the rugged Selway Bitterroot mountains, shooting at distances required and taking instruction from guides. Clients unable to preform the tasks required will greatly reduce the chances to harvest a elk.

We guide a couple of these each year. We have never sent an elk hunter home without an elk in this area.  The 2017 season scored 342" a 335" and a 330" bulls for our lucky clients in this area.The 2 biggest bulls ever taken with Redbone Outfitting in this area Scored 394 and 405 gross score.  We do these elk hunts by special arrangement and you should give us a call or email us for more information. Keep in mind you must DRAW a special permit (Montana hunting district 620 or 621) to hunt this area.

Idaho Rifle Elk Hunts Drop camp elk hunts and Archery Elk hunts Take place in Idaho hunting unit 12 and we have great success with our elk hunts there. These great elk hunts take place in the northern reaches of the Selway bitterroot wilderness in Idaho along the Montana border. Elk licenses are available on a first come basis here and are normally available through the summer prior to Elk season. These hunts are either base camp or pack in hunts, we recomend the base camp option as it gives the guides more options if the Elk are moving. These camps are a short 1 1/2 hour drive from Missoula Montana.
