Wyoming Elk Hunting Thorofare area

To ALL

We are planning a fully guided elk hunt in Wyoming, near Cody in the , Thorofare area near SE corner of Yellowstone.
Anyone hunted this recently and have any trouble with Grizzly, or wolves on the elk?

Just doing a little research and wanting the experts to weigh in...
thanks

Re: Wyoming Elk Hunting Thorofare area

I have hunted this area 5 Times with 3 different outfitters. By far the best outfitter to hunt with is Elk Hunting Cody Wyoming | Big Game Hunts WY | Wyoming Expeditions

Bears they are everywhere! 2 Years ago a hunter in our group saw a sow and a cub 100 yards away. The hunter decided to take a picture of the bears. The sow bear charged the hunter shot his gun up in the air to scare the bear she kept coming. the hunter ended up reloading his gun and killing her 5 feet in front of him.

Another time one of the members of our group shot an Elk and we were not sure how well he was hit so we let him go and came back the next day. What a mistake there were 15 grizzly bears on the elk. The guide horses and pack mules were all tangeled up and spooking. We were extremely lucky someone did not get killed. Hunting in the Thorofare is a true hunting adventure! it's a bonus if you kill an elk. Which there are lots and lots of animals. Its just a challenge to get to some of them.

Thanks so much for the comment and guidance....
I will check out the outfitter you mentioned.

Have you (or anyone) ever hunted with Pass Creek outfitters, same area? If so, any comments?
That is who we initially contacted and talked too..
thanks

WOW! Soooo who said you have to go to Africa to hunt dangerous game?!?

I'd be bringing a LRH rig *plus* another hard-shooting, fast big-bore personal protection rifle just for the bears

Though it's not 'til next year, enjoy your hunt (and all the prep for it!!!). We'll be looking here for the pics and your write-up!

Re: Wyoming Elk Hunting Thorofare area

Well apparently not...in fact Africa sounds safer!
We are still in the early planning stages, which as anyone knows is fun.

Last elk hunt I went on (2001) was Montana near Yellowstone and saw 10 grizzlies in one week, and two packs of wolves...beautiful rugged wild country. Our group of 4 killed 3 nice bulls....

But for now we are weighing all of our options in 3 states. Great advice here though by the experts....
thanks again,
Mighty Man
