Jim, Cook and GuideAccommodations 
I left public lands in 1986 when I went full time on a private ranch. 

Camp accommodations are 12 x 14 portable cabins, insulated and heated by propane. They are quite comfortable and dry and provide for 3 hunters maximum per cabin. I have a 12 x 26 portable cook cabin complete with a full time cook providing home-style meals.

Transportation for hunting is four wheel drive vehicles. I do keep horses in camp in case we have to pack an elk out.  This is not a horseback hunt.

Gallatin Field in Bozeman, Montana is the nearest airport and arrangements can be made for you to be picked up there and brought to the ranch. If you drive you can leave your vehicle at the home ranch or if you have a pickup, you can also drive right to camp. It is much easier and a lot less expensive to get your game home if you drive.

As of Jan 1 2011 there will be no more guaranteed combo licenses through an outfitter. It was voted out fall of 2010 by the state of Montana through initiative I 161, after being in place for 15 years.

All 17,000 non resident licenses are in a general pool...If there are more than 17,000 applications by march 15th it will go to a drawing.

Antelope season overlaps with the first 2 weeks of the General Season so you will need to book your hunt in the first 2 hunts if you want to hunt antelope. Antelope permits are issued by drawing and I usually draw 40-50% of hunters who apply. There is no additional charge in the price of the hunt for antelope unless you're successful, then there is a $500 Trophy Fee.

Opening week antelope hunts will be available in early October.  If drawn, the cost will be $2000 for a *5 day hunt.

Refund Policy - 50% deposit at time of booking. Personal checks accepted for deposits. Balance due Sept 1 of year hunting. Cashiers check or money order for balance. If license would go on a draw, and you fail to draw, you may receive your deposit back, or defer to the next year, at current price.  If licenses would go to a draw, and you do draw a license and then fail to come for what ever reason, deposit is non-refundable unless slot can be refilled with another successful applicant.

*The hunt is over after an antelope has been taken.
