After going on an elk / mule deer hunt in 2003 with Butte Creek Outfitters, I didnt think that my experience then could be topped. Well, I was wrong. I just returned from my second wilderness hunt into the Thorofare region of Wyoming with Ron and his Butte Creek crew. This was in fact the hunt of a lifetime. It began snowing shortly before we started our 7 hour pack / ride into camp. By the time it stopped coming down there was 18 inches on the ground. The snow apparently made the game decide to move because from that point on it was an elk and deer smorgasbord. They were literaly everywhere. By the end of the week when the shooting stopped there were seven 6 point or better bull elk and six 4 x 4 or better mule deer on the ground. The elk ranged in size from a very respectable 6 x 5 to my huge and heavy 9 x 5 non typical. This elk had at least 3 of its points broken off and camp scored at approximately 360 SCI points. Had it not been for the broken off points the elk would have been approximately 402 inches!!! Two of the other bulls killed were in the 325 inch class as well. Needless to say the elk hunting was exceptional. All of the deer taken had 21 - 23 inch spreads and were nice and tall. Bigger deer were seen with some of them being shot at and missed. It was not uncommon to see over 200 deer a day. In additon to the great hunting, one of the best reasons to use Butte Creek as your outfitter is the crew that Ron has. Everyone is a multiple year employee and they are very dedicated to making sure that everything goes right for each and every hunter. Ron, the owner, is also always in camp. You never have to worry that someone is off the program and any issues that you may have are quickly addressed. The food with Butte Creek is always outstanding and very plentiful. This year was no exception. If you are considering a wilderness hunt Butte Creek Outfitters should be on your list. If you want additional information feel free to contact me.
