4 Week Big Game Guide and Packer Master Course

May 7 – June 1, 2019

4-Week Guide and Packer Course- $ 4400

Large elk herds are still down in the low country providing great viewing and hunting practice opportunities.
The cow elk are calving during this time. The fishing is generally pretty good, but undammed streams will have high muddy water.
It is a good time to hunt spring black bear. Usually pretty mild weather and without the summer bugs.


June 11 – July 6, 2019

The snowpack has receded to allow for longer hikes into the backcountry. The bull elk will have good antler growth by now. The high mountain streams and lakes have awesome fishing.

Can you picture in your mind….fall colors, frosty mornings and bugling elk? Well, it’s that time of year.
Fly fishing cow camp with a hopper pattern is phenomenal during the pack trip.
