While Joining Us in a Thrilling Guided Archery Elk Hunt

Big Timber Outfitters is your premiere choice for bow hunting trophy archery elk. Our hunts last 8 days, with 1 day in, 1 day out, and 6 days in the field. Archery tags are available over the counter on a first come, first serve basis, and we are very fortunate to be assigned Idaho hunting Unit 29. Our exclusive area covers approximately 300 square miles and boasts some of Idaho's finest trophy bulls. Plus, Idaho Fish and Game has limited the number of rifle hunts in our area by designating the area as controlled hunt only, making it a prime trophy location!

Take the Trails to Archery Elk

Upon arrival at the trailhead, you enjoy a 2 to 3-hour scenic horseback ride to camp along Big Timber Creek, into the heart of big elk habitat. Our camps are furnished with comfortable tents and wood stoves, and come with delicious home-cooked meals, gentle mountain horses, and friendly, professional guides for your ultimate elk hunting experience. From camp, you and your guide easily access game trails, wallows, or blinds, or you may prefer to stalk the many ridges, creeks, and hundreds of small hidden meadows in search of your backcountry trophy.


Man Standing by Horses

Once you head out in search of archery elk, you can traverse 300 square miles of hunting terrain. This terrain consists of high mountain meadows and wallows. Pre-scouting is always done before you arrive in order to locate the elk for our hunters, and archery elk hunting trips are available on a one-on-one guide/hunter ratio to help you come home with the prize. Although we don’t guarantee you will harvest an animal, we do guarantee that you will be in the middle of elk country. We have a lot of archery elk and some Trophy Bulls!
