We hunt elk, we live elk, we have a passion for elk. We are avid bowmen ourselves, with the two lead guides having a combined 36 years of bowhunting experience. There is nothing quite like chasing elk in the fall, it frees the spirit and lets one disconnect from the stresses of everyday life. We offer a variety of elk hunts. Wilderness hunts with guaranteed tags, spot and stalk archery hunts with guaranteed tags, November spike hunts with guaranteed tags, early and late season cow hunts with guaranteed tags and trophy rifle hunts with a select number of guaranteed tags. We utilize a private land base camp, backcountry wall tent camps, as well as off your back bivy camps. HCO owns 30 head of bullet proof mountain stock to support our backcountry endeavors. We operate in outstanding elk units, with high density and good trophy quality. HCO has your elk hunt.
Rates and Dates
Days shown indicate hunting days in the field. Hunting days can be affected by up to a half day (typically in addition to the dates shown) depending on camp location and other factors. HCO asks hunters to arrive and depart at the day and time indicated on the booking contract. HCO will typically limit it to two (2) hunters per camp with a maximum of four (4). HCO has a 3D archery range and rifle range for hunters to dial in their weapon on the afternoon prior to the first day of the hunt. All HCO hunts include lodging, transportation, guides, stock, tack, food and gear for rent during their respective hunts. Taxidermy and processing are not included. HCO can ship meat 2 or 3 day UPS following the season for the cost of shipping plus a holding fee for the processor. We can also deliver trophies to a taxidermist for a small gas surcharge at which point payments and shipping would be negotiated with the taxidermist directly. If you are driving, please bring coolers for meat. Accommodations outside of the hunting days can be set up at The Watermark Inn in Challis, Idaho. Add-ons can be affected by seasonality and location. Please contact us to discuss add-ons. Dates and prices are subject to change.
