One of the most difficult things to discover in the world of big-game hunting is a quality elk hunting operation offered at an affordable price. Save yourself the grief and aggravation and take advantage of the free research already conducted by Cabela's Outdoor Adventures. There are three different hunting scenarios to choose from. The most affordable trip takes place on the National Forest, via pack-in horseback, and is conducted from a comfortable wall tent camp. A step up from this option is a hunt on the forest conducted from comfortable cabins.The premier trip takes place from a deluxe lodge and offers 5,000 acres of private land at your disposal. All trips offer free mule deer hunting if you can draw the tag (70% chance of drawing).

"I chose this hunt solely on the basis that Cabela's advertised it. I have been a loyal fan and customer for 15 years and have always had a good experience. Thanks for the help in arranging this trip of a lifetime to help me celebrate my military retirement. I will hopefully be talking with you soon to book another trip." B.B. (2014 2nd rifle season)

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help with kyle's and my hunt. "Everything was great from the accommodations, to the guides, and the food. Our guide Matt put us on elk right from the start. I was able to take a nice 6x6 bull with a 303 yd shot. Again i thank you and i look forward to working with cabelas outdoor adventures for my next hunt." (T.N. 2014)
