Montana Wilderness Adventures at Hawley Mountain Guest Ranch

Experience the thrill of a hunting adventure in the wilderness north of Yellowstone Park. Hunt from our lodge or our back country camp up Meatrack Creek. You will be in spectacular mountain terrain that is also home to a multitude of wild beasts including mountain goats, moose, and elk.

Moose, mountain goat, and elk hunting are available from our back country camp. Licenses for both moose and mountain goat are obtained only by lottery. They are hard to get, but harvest is likely when you are able to get the tags.

Both elk and moose numbers have declined since the wolves have expanded into our hunting area from those planted in Yellowstone Park. (Mountain goats are still thriving.) The situation is probably dynamic as the wolves may move with the elk and drive some of them up to this area again. We had reduced the number of hunters we take to compensate for the low elk numbers, and we now are recommending that you book rifle season hunts with us after May in order for us to see what the spring populations look like. We will take a couple of archery hunters during the normal booking time, because the bulls are still reasonably easy to locate durning the rut even with the reduced elk populations. We have still been successful with our latest moose hunts.
