Elk Hunting Guides and Outfitters

Elk hunting is so much more than just meat in the freezer and antlers on the wall. It’s about the experience, the friendship, the challenge, the animals, the land, the despair…. and the excitement when it all comes together.


Hunters usually picture calling to bulls during the rut, but there are so many different elk hunting options.

We completely agree that every hunter should experience a bull screaming his way into a call at least once…twice….well every year if you can. There aren’t many things that compare to being in the woods during the elk rut. But there are so many options depending on your personal goals and budget. That’s what our service is all about. Let is know if you’d like to schedule a consultation.

We also work with a number of outfitters and landowners across the West who offer hunting vouchers, as well as a few great drop camps. See all of our elk hunting trips.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

Jesse Neveau

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.

There are three hunt-able sub-species of elk in North America classified by the Boone and Crockett club: The American; Roosevelt; and Tule elk. These amazing game animals have been gradually reclaiming their historical habitat across North America, and we offer great hunts for each of them. Their current range extends from Arizona and New Mexico to Idaho and Montana, and the Canadian provinces of BC and Alberta. You can also find them in New Zealand, or their next of kin, the Siberian Wapiti, in Russia and Kazakhstan.
