    LRH Group Hunt for elk in the western Wyoming mountains in 2016. We have hunted elk with Non-Typical Outfitters 3 times including in 2015. (I am writing this a few days before I head out for the 2015 hunt).

    The following is what I wrote last year:

    ================================

    We have had great results! In 2014 we had 6 bulls down in the first 3 days of the hunt.

    A report on the 2013 hunt is HERE.

    A report on the 2014 hunt is HERE.
    ================================

    To reserve for 2016 you must first indicate in the forum thread your commitment to immediately send in a deposit check to the outfitter. Download the booking form HERE, print out and mail to the outfitter. Indicate on the Booking Form that you are signing up for the 2015 LRH Group Elk Hunt. And whether it is the ARCHERY or RIFLE hunt. You also must email me when you have placed the check in the mail to the outfitter. Let me know your LRH screen name, your real name and contact info. Len@LongRangeHunting.com

    Bull elk hunt:
    • Hunt cost is $4,195 for two-on-one guiding or one-on one for $1,000 more

    • Non-Typical Outfitters
    • Total of 8 to 10 hunters in camp for rifle and for archery
    • Bull elk
    • Rifle or archery
    • 85% success rate but even better than that for those in good shape and good shooters

    • Horseback each day
    • High country wilderness (7,000 to 8,000 feet)
    • Long Range friendly outfitter

    • Deposit of $1,000 is only requirement until successful draw in 2016
    • Two elk Preference points needed in Regular Draw. One point needed for the more expensive Special Draw. (based on 2014 draw odds) Although ZERO points drew at an 86% rate in 2014 with the Special Draw. CORRECTION: THAT WAS 86% IN 2013 BUT 64% in 2014 SPECIAL DRAW.

    In 2016 we are fortunate that outfitter Robb Wiley has offered us the chance to hunt in his new area described below. READ THE LAST PARAGRAPH

    Hey Len, I'm in for two spots if possible, one for me and one for my wife. We have one point for elk now and would apply in the special draw to get the tag. I've shot a few Elk before but she has never hunted Elk. I asked her what was the one animal she wanted to hunt in North America and she said Elk. This hunt sounds like the perfect one to do it on!

    Ray, I would buy another one.

    The activity is so strong, I think it'll be full very soon.

    Len.
    Sign me up for this one on the one on one in the new area. I sent Rob and Brenda a deposit about two months ago. I planned to hunt regardless next year but I was really hoping to get in with you guys again. This is Justin from the 2014 hunt, by the way. It'll be me and my Dad again and a non hunting guest who is an old army buddy of mine who is coming to spot for me. I'll down load the form and get it sent in and they already have my deposit. I also have one point and I'm going to put in for the special draw. I am looking forward to this so much. Well it's off to the gym to prepare for the new extra rugged terrain haha, as if the regular rugged terrain out there wasn't tough enough.
