LRH Group Hunt for elk in the western Wyoming mountains in 2017. We have hunted elk with Non-Typical Outfitters 4 times including in 2015.

The following is what I wrote a couple years ago:

“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.”

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

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.

A report on the 2015 hunt is HERE. There you can read about what a factor weather can be in the success of a hunt.

And HERE is the story of my own hunt in 2015.

A report on the 2016 hunt is HERE.

5 elk points. Hmmmmm. I ain't getting any younger either.
Only 3 hours from where I live.
I've been on the waiting list for deer with Non Typical for 3 years now.

Congrats on the Bulls taken on the 2016 hunt.

Good Morning Len,
I spoke with the folks over at Non-Typical Outfitters and they think I have a decent chance of getting drawn. I filled out the form and put the deposit in the mail.

If I ever get younger that's where I'll put my max points. A good crew!

Hey Len. Spoke to Robb this morning and we're going to fill the last 3 spots! I'm bringing my bro-in-law, who's also a member on the site, and my dad to hunt. I'm also bringing my 12 year old son to ride horses and shadow us each day. Sending in the paperwork and deposits this week. We. Are. Pumped!

Not to be the nay sayer but this is a epic winter this year.
6+ feet of snow so far and no end to it in the near future.
The winterkill is sure to be bad this year. Just something to consider.
