Pack Trip Trophy Elk Hunts Overview:

Bring a group of up to 8 hunters to hunt elk from our hunting camp at Hawks Rest in Yellowstone Meadows, the most remote area in the lower 48 states. This riparian area serves as a major migration corridor for Yellowstone elk as they travel to their winter feeding grounds.

In a fun daily ritual, guides draw cards to determine their pecking order for hunting grounds. Then two hunters pair off with a guide to spend the day in spectacular Teton Wilderness working to fill their tags.

At the end of each day, you'll return to camp for a hearty meal with all the trimmings and a chance to swap hunting stories around the fire.

10-Day Teton Wilderness Pack Hunts

(Elk Hunts During the Rut)
10-day hunts are built around the rut. While we can find good hunting in easier terrain, most of the best hunting will be in the steep high country, mountain plateaus, across rocky ridges, and in spectacular mountains best accessed by foot.

No matter where you kill out, we'll get your animal back to civilization for you. That's vital when you're farther from a road in any direction than you can be anywhere else in the continental U.S.

7- or 8-Day Teton Wilderness Pack Hunts

(Elk Only During Migration)
Also based at our remote Hawks Rest Camp on the Yellowstone River in the Teton Wilderness, you can choose to hunt elk with a Wyoming tag during prime migration season.

Since the animals are migrating, they tend to spend more time in accessible valley floors. That means these hunts have the potential to be much less strenuous.


Hawks Rest Camp

One of the most remote places in the lower 48


Pack in 28 miles from base camp at Turpin Meadows to Hawks Rest Camp on the southeast corner of Yellowstone National Park. Our exclusive camp is sited between the Yellowstone River and the Thorofare River (Area 60 on a Game & Fish map).

Not only will you be hunting in one of the best trophy elk camps in the United States but you will also be hunting in a country that looks the same as it did 100 years ago.


Our fully equipped camp has earned its excellent reputation by hiring reputable licensed guides, maintaining a clean, comfortable camp, serving good food and supplying good horses, mules and equipment.

Camp Amenities:

  • Cook tent
  • Shower tent
  • Sleeping tents with cots, foam mattresses, lanterns, and wood-burning stoves
  • Endless firewood supply for warmth and comfort

Packing Instruction

Total bag weight:

40 pounds each

Total bag count:

2 duffel bags no longer than 36 inches

General Gear:

Your gear should fit into one or two duffel bags, with your bedroll rolled separately. However, it's better to use two or three shorter duffel bags than one big one. Please limit each bag to 40 pounds or less.

We want you to take what you need, but please remember that all gear must be packed in nearly 30 miles by mule.


Please bring a rifle with a high-velocity load and flat trajectory with which you're familiar to ensure your best chance at your trophy elk.

Shots will vary from 25 to 600 yards, but most shots are about 200 to 300 yards. We recommend you sight your rifle in at 200 to 300 yards.


You may wish to insure your rifle and other valuable equipment against damage or loss during the hunt.

Yellowstone Outfitters accepts no responsibility for lost or damaged personal gear.
