Thorofare Elk Hunt

Leave Cody and have an 8 hour horse ride into area over Deer Creek Trail.
Sept 10th season opens. One of the lower 48 most remote areas. Great scenery, lots of Elkand Grizzly Bears. While I was hunting I kille a 5X5 Elk and Mule deer and saw 13 bears. 2 were sows with 2 cubs, 1 was a sow with one cub and 5 were solo bears. One of the guys with me had his elk taken by a bear before we could quarter it up and hang it on a bear pole. One of the best hunting trips you can have, Been there twice now.

You can have your Grizzly bears! I'll stay over in the Big Horns where about all we have is an occasional wolf! Be safe!!!

Re: Thorofare Elk Hunt

that is a hunt I'd really like to do before I get much older . I've been looking at these for probably 5 years or so . none of my buddies want to do this or I probably would have hunted it by now . what guide did you use ? I kind of liked what I read about hidden creek outfitters they were called thorofare outfitters . thanks Jim

Re: Thorofare Elk Hunt

I haven't been in that country for a few years now. Backpacked over the pass on deer creek trail a few times. I had somebody pick me up on pacific creek one year after I walked it all the way through. Grizzlies got so bad I quit fooling with it and the wolves ate most of the elk so I haven't been there in a few years. If you need another guy I would like to see that country again. Do you have horses or going to rent them? I hunted it back in the 70's-80's and it was very good then. I would like to see some of my old hotspots.
