Whitetail deer flourish in the little pockets,
hardly ever moving very far, many of them here die
from old age in these little places. Mule deer

during the rut, you bugling and them answering? The
sounds of "war" as they rip up the forest,
will it come to you or will it drift away silently
like a ghost in the forest? The anticipation and
trepidation as the bull comes crashing through the
timber towards you. Is it going to be the bull of
your dreams? Is it going to recognize you as a human
being, or just run right over the top of you! Will
it be the right bull for you? The thing about elk

by a digital game camera located at one of our bait
stations. The wolves arrived March 23rd 2007 and
were still there March 29th when we recovered the
camera. You can judge for your self the quality of

which may happen at any time or not at all.

some changes with our wolf hunts to ensure higher
success and more client satisfaction.

and worked as they eked out a living from the
wilderness. It was never an easy life for trappers,
but the rigors of their lives where far out weighed
by the surrounding natural beauties of the mountains
and the wildlife. Being able to see these things in
the raw is something in itself
offer six day "Trap Line Tours" where you
can learn how the trappers of the past harvested
furs. We don't expect you to live like the mountain
men did two hundred years a go; we even use modern
transport where necessary. But you will still learn
the techniques used by those extraordinary men and
experience nature as it has been for thousands of
