Elk, Deer & Moose Hunts
The Spotted Horse Ranch has been Outfitting hunters since 1961. We have two camps, as well as ten guest cabins at the ranch. We currently own more than fifty horses, so we will be sure to have one to suit your style. Elk, Deer, and Moose hunts take place from our Hunter Creek Camp, located sixteen miles into the backcountry. This camp is the larger of the two, in the heart of 152,000 acres of the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
Such amenities as a heated shower tent, large cook and dining tent, and running water are in place during the summer season as well as the fall hunting season. Accommodations are canvas wall tents, 10’X12’, each equipped with wood stove for heat, cots, pads, nightstands, and lights. Hunters sleep two to a tent. Two private restroom facilities are available. Dining is in our spacious cook tent, and meals are served family style. Soda pop, water, juice and beer are provided to each hunter. We are happy to pack any other beverages to camp for you. While hearty food is the rule, special diets can be attended to as well.
On arrival at the Spotted Horse Ranch, you will have all the amenities of the Ranch available for you use, including lodging in one of our guest cabins, hot-tub, sauna, and all meals. We can transport you to a 100-yard range just south of Jackson to check your rifle. To ensure that our horses stay fresh and healthy, we rotate each day to a different horse. Two horses and a saddle will be selected for you for the following days ride into Hunter Creek Camp. Scabbards and saddlebags are provided as well. Wyoming State Law allows up to six hunters to one guide in our area, but we have found that two to one gives not only a better quality hunt, but increases our success ratio as well. Reaching camp on the second night, Dinner will be served and plans formulated for the next morning’s hunt.
You will have a total of seven nights in Hunter Creek Camp, riding/hunting, out on day eight to return to the ranch. All meat and trophies are cared for by experienced packers, and transported to the ranch to our walk-in meat cooler. Meat processing and taxidermy are both available in Jackson. The country we hunt is steep and rugged, and much hunting will be done on foot as well as horseback; please consider the physical nature of such a hunt.
Antelope Hunting is a day hunt from the Ranch. Transportation by vehicle and all meals are provided. A typical antelope hunt would be: Breakfast at the Ranch at 5:30, depart for hunting areas by six A.M. A sack lunch is provided. We usually return to the ranch by seven P.M. for dinner.
