Elk Hunting on the Rome Hill Ranch

October 14th, 2013

The abundant wildlife of Rome Hill Ranch adds magnificent value to the overall ranch experience. Elk hunting is tremendous with the average herd ranging from 300 to 800 elk. In 2010, it is said that a game warden counted upwards of 1,200 elk on the ranch. The genetics of the herd coupled with the prime habitat of the ranch provide the ideal situation for large bull elk. Hunting has been managed and patrolled by 2 outfitters in the past to ensure quality animals. In 2011, a heavy 7×7 bull was taken by a local high school student. Take a look at a few of these recent trophy shots and see for yourself the rewards of elk hunting on the Rome Hill Ranch» More: Elk Hunting on the Rome Hill Ranch

Bull Elk Hunt

September 23rd, 2011

By: Alex Maher

Took a short walk Monday morning solo to try out a new area east of Moran, in Grizzly country, planned to be back to the truck by 10am on a 3 mile loop.  I heard a bull bugle at 7am downwind of me, and despite an attempt to circle downwind of him, he never made another peep.  I’m guessing he smelled me coming.  I continued on through the thick timber, picking up more elk sign as I went, marked a huge watering hole on the GPS (probably where that bull had bugled), and I bugled every 20 minutes with no responses.  At 8am, I sat down on a log in the middle of a well-traveled elk trail to have a snack.  With about one bite left on the granola bar, I heard a half-bugle up ahead in the timber 200 yards or so.  » More: Bull Elk Hunt

Bighorn Sheep Hunt

October 18th, 2010

By: Terry Fieseler sheep-hunt2

The hunt started on August 15th with the opening of archery season, when I hunted with my longbow.   It was very hard to find rams in an area that I would have the chance to make a stalk.  The terrain was so steep and rugged with cliffs and rock slides.  At an elevation of 10,000 feet plus, it is extremely hard to get within my 20 – 25 yard range to take a a shot.  I was able to stalk 3 rams one day and closed the distance to 100 yards before the rams winded me and the stalk was over.  I had been climbing for over 7 hours at this point, sometimes using both hands and my bow just to stay on the cliff face… » More: Bighorn Sheep Hunt

Wyoming Elk Hunt

October 7th, 2009

tatetop1Every Fall I find myself in the hillsides in and around Jackson, Wyoming, in search of resident bull elk.  The elk found near Jackson earlier in the season are generally smaller than bulls in “the Park” who migrate south later in the year.  I prefer to bow hunt during the early weeks of September when the weather is warmer and the elk are vocal and actively seeking their harems.  In my opinion, this time of year is more enjoyable than waiting for the larger elk and the beginning of rifle season which typically entails snowy weather.   » More: Wyoming Elk Hunt
