Hunting Bison in the Shadow of the Tetons

December 1st, 2011

Live Water Properties Broker, Matt MacMillan, grins as he poses with his prized buffalo. Jackson, Wyoming’s National Elk Refuge is one of the few places in the US where you can hunt free ranging wild bison. Matt pulled a special tag with limited permits this hunting season. The refuge suggests hunters pass a bison identification exam available online as a tool to help hunters differentiate between bulls and cows. A one to two-year-old bull and a mature cow are difficult to distinguish. To learn more about how you can go bison hunting in the shadow of the Tetons, click here.

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
