The Hunt

  We specialize in high quality horseback hunts in the game rich Gallatin Mountains of south-central Montana, near the edge of Yellowstone National Park. One of the West's all time best game ranges, the mountains of the central Gallatin Range, drift into the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park harboring large herds of big game.


From willow laced stream bottoms through golden meadows and dark timber ridges of the high country, superb elk, deer and bear take cover to the wind swept slopes of Packsaddle, Twin and Ramshorn Peaks. As home of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep as well as Mountain goat, you'll hunt abundant game with chances at good trophies.

Mule deer taken by Bear's Den Outfitters on our 64 square mile hunt area near the edge of Yellowstone National Park.From our base camp on Fisher Creek you'll hunt an area encompassing some 64 square miles. It straddles one of the major migration routes of the Yellowstone elk herd, estimated at 15,000 animals. Big bulls from park herds replenish our range yearly, which are at an all time high. Of course, we can't guarantee you'll kill a six point bull, but you will see elk. Our success rate on mature bulls averages 60% or better.


Early season bow hunting during the rut in September is especially exciting. Rut crazed bulls answer the bugle readily and come in close. In the first week of the ' 2001 season, we called in eight bulls.


In addition to unsurpassed pack-in hunting for Trophy Elk, Mule Deer, Moose, Sheep and Goat  in the Gallatin Mountains, we also offer exciting and less demanding hunting from 4WD vehicles for Trophy Whitetails, Mule Deer, and Antelope on one of the largest  private ranches in south-central Montana.

The Camp

  Hunting Montana's Big Sky with Bear's Den Outfitters is more than just hunting. It's warm carpeted tents on cold nights, hot cowboy coffee on chilly mornings, and food your Grandma might have made, and plenty of it. Our cooks bake fresh cakes, pies, cobbler, and cookies daily. Our breakfasts are all "cooked-to-order." Wrap your belly around eggs (any way you want 'me), omelets, flap-jacks, toast, ham, bacon or sausage (one or all three at every breakfast), home fries, juice...well you get the aroma. Our lunches are just as good. Whether you prefer it hot in camp (homemade soups, chili, fresh fruit) or wish to take a big sack lunch to go, we'll ensure you don't go hungry.
Montana trophy elk hunting the Big Sky with Bear's Den Outfitters is more than just hunting.Finish off the day with cocktails and hors d'oeurves, telling stories of the day's hunt. Then sidestep up to a dinner of custom cut beef steaks, pork loins, or barbecued chicken and ribs.


You may groan when you stagger off to your warm sleeping quarters with foam-cushioned beds, but you'll be rarin' to go when you smell the next morning's fresh coffee, mixed with a tang of fresh pine woodsmoke and pure high mountain air. You'll understand why one outdoor writer calls a high mountain hunting camp "the closest thing to heaven on earth."
 
 

Trophy Care

  We provide our client's with some unique services not provided by most outfitters: a full facility trophy care and butcher shop "on-site". We employ a professional meat cutter at the Bear's Den Ranch on the Wineglass Mountain south of Livingston. So if you kill a six point bull, he could be caped out, butchered, and wrapped to order. The meat is froze, ready to ship, and the cape sent to the taxidermist, all within 48 hours, at no extra charge.
 
 

Safety

We are always in contact with the home ranch. This gives everyone a huge safety and efficiency advantage. Need to stay in touch with the home office or just want to feel secure when out in the wilderness? You've got it with Bear's Den Outfitters. We don't cut corners because we want you to have the best hunt of your life!


Your Guides

Because we keep our groups small, six hunters or less, we have a perfect ratio of one guide to two hunters. For an extra charge, we'll make the ratio one on one. Our top four guides share over sixty years experience at hunting, guiding, and outfitting in Montana. The rest of the crew-cooks, wranglers, and packers- are equally competent. Our guides have worked for us for six years or more.
