High Fence Elk Hunts. Are they for you?
Trying to get your chance at a bull elk over 350″ without waiting the years in takes to draw the “right” tag can be a VERY expensive and time consuming venture.
A solution to that issue, if cost is a concern, is to hunt big bulls on a high fence ranch. In the market for free ranging bulls of 350+ caliber you will pay anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 most of the time. Now, we all know guys who have gotten those kinds of bulls on lower cost hunts but if you want a place that can legitimately average those kinds of numbers then you are going to have to write a serious check.
As an alternative you can get into those kinds of bulls for $7-$10,000 on a high fence place. I’m with you…if you are saying to yourself that you’d rather kill a bull like that on free range. But, there are some very good, big property high fence elk hunts out west. We do work with a few outfitters who have large enough properties where you are going to have a very challenging hunt to get a bull.
If budget, time, or physical condition is an issue for you, look to high fence hunt for your monster bull solution.
