RIFLE HUNT or ARCHERY HUNT - 2015 This time we will have 2 groups. One for archery and one for rifle. I will be present for both hunts. I will be using my crossbow in the archery hunt. Wyoming allows them. If successful then, I will still come for the rifle hunt. In this case I hope to be invited to tag along for a bit with some of our LRH Group rifle hunters.

This is the same elk hunt that we did last October, 2013 and are doing again this October, 2014. ================================= SCOUTING REPORT Here is what I wrote in the Sept. 2014 LRH Newsletter: “Ten days ago I returned from the mountains of western Wyoming. There I spent two giddy days on horse and foot scouting for elk with Non-Typical Outfitters' Robb Wiley and three of his guides. For me this was a preview of our upcoming *October, 2014 LRH GROUP ELK HUNT. The first morning we saw 25 bulls. Twenty-two of the twenty-five were 5's and 6's and the rest were 3 or 4 point. Incredible. We went to a different area the second morning and even though it was raining with poor visibility we saw 12 more there. Pre-season scouting is a huge factor in the success of NTO in hunting for big bucks and bulls. I felt very privileged to "look under the hood” and see just how they do it.” ================================ A report on the 2013 hunt is HERE. A report on the 2014 hunt is HERE.
