4 days guided 2×1 is $3,250 and if you draw an antelope tag he allows you to take one the first 2 weeks of deer season at no additional charge. Hunters stay in a local motel for about $70 per room at their own expense along with restaurant meals or they can stay in an old mobile home on the ranch and do their own meals.

Hunt dates are about October 20 to Thanksgiving. Hunters y into Rapid City or Billings and rent a car for the 2 1/2 hour drive.

Montana has changed their deer license program, so now you can typically draw an elk/ deer license for $944 and then apply for the special draw for bull elk in this trophy unit and it is very unlikely that you would draw so you should get back $383, so your deer license is only $561. If you do draw the elk tag this is a great trophy unit and the outfitter will upgrade your hunt to include a bull on a trophy fee basis for only $2,500. Montana now allows you to purchase a bonus point from June to September for $50. Deer/elk draw deadline is March 15 and pronghorn draw deadline is early June. Reserve your spot now for the next available opening in 2018. Hunt WD427.
