Bliss Creek Camp is located 22 miles into the Washakie Wilderness of the Shoshone National Forest. NW Wyoming
Our ARCHERY ELK SEASON is in September - and this is a true wilderness experience! This is known as the "Majestic Bugle Season!" Shooting success at bulls 40 yards or less has averaged around 75% over the past 2 decades.
GENERAL RIFLE ELK SEASON is October 1-21, and we run 7-day hunts with one or two hunters per guide. Hunting will vary from calling in bulls to glassing and staling to still hunting through timber.
LATE SEASON ELK is in November and this is during the migration out of the high fall range down to the winter range. It is not uncommon to see herds of 100-200 elk. The chance of getting a really big bull are high and success rates are near 100% on 300 B&C bulls!
Bliss Creek Camp, in the Washakie Wilderness of the Shoshone National Forest, consist of wall tents, log beds with comfortable mattresses, wood burning stoves and heated showers. The camp cook prepares delicious, hearty family-style meals in the cook tent while the guide and hunters share stories about the day's hunt.
Our Spring Black Bear hunts are conducted in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming from May 1 - June 15. We have 100% success rate, but we only take 6 hunters a year. So if you want a Black Bear, you better book early! We hunt over baits at 6000 to 9000 feet and some of our bait stations have been set up for over 30 years!
