Guided and Catered Rifle and Archery Hunts

Sawtooth Zone Elk Tags Available ( until July 31 must go along with a guided or drop camp hunt)

$5000 per person 2 on 1 hunt

Pioneer Outfitters hunts Elk and Deer in Unit 36 and 36-1 for controlled hunts. We have superb opportunities for elk, deer and bear. 

Our first hunts are generally archery hunts, starting August 30th and running through September 14th for antlered, and through September 30th for antlerless. Archery hunts provide warm days and cool nights; elk are bugling, providing opportunities for nice bulls. We have well timbered areas with high mountain meadows and sagebrush.

Rifle season begins October 15th and runs through November 8th. There is usually snow on the later hunts, facilitating tracking and spotting elk as they move towards winter range.

Deer hunting begins October 10th and ends October 30th. This is an antlered only hunt on which you can use any weapon.


Guided Trophy Species start at $8000.  Guided Mountain goat and Big Horn sheep

There are also excellent opportunities for mountain goat, by permit only; 36-3 and 36-4 (prefered) are the controlled hunt areas for mountain goat.  By lottery only. Includes everything all of the guided elk hunts offer. Call for more details and hunt specifications. 

Drop Camp Hunts

Starts at $4000 (per person, does includes tag but not hunting license) 

Prices are based on a seven day trip. 

Drop camps are for experienced hunters who do not require guides or cooks. With a drop camp, we provide all of the gear necessary for a comfortable camp. We will take you and your gear in on horseback and familiarize you with the area. We will pack your game out at no additional charge as long as we can reach it with the pack animals. We do not leave horses in camp, but we do check on you 1-2 times during your stay.
