Swan Mountain Outfitters Hunting Services

swan lake outfittersSince Swan Mountain Outfitters operate a guide school, they get to hand select from their best graduates and groom them into some of the country’s best elk guides. The guides at Swan Mountain Outfitters are very deliberate in the techniques they use to get hunters within range of world class elk. 

To start off, the Swan Mountain Outfitters’ guide will take 2 hunters at a time and travel as much as 2 days on horseback to reach prime elk territory. Once in the targeted area, the Swan Mountain Outfitters’ guide will utilize a spike camp. At the spike camp, scent control is in effect and there aren’t any open fires or other scent creating activities that can ruin a hunt’s chances. They are serious about maximizing your success.

Once in the designated hunting area, your experienced guide will use the best spot and stalk techniques as well as the best calling methods to give you the best chance at killing an elk. The average archery elk hunt is a 7 day hunt that normally consists of 2 days for travel and 5 days for hunting.
