Happy Holidays to everyone and many thanks for all your cards and letters! The river’s pretty much froze up, but the good old wind has kept the hillsides open with plenty of chow for our resident elk herd. Thus far it’s been cold, but mild enough that winter doesn’t feel like it’s really set in. We could use some snow. FWP estimates the Northern elk herd at 10,000.
I thought I’d take a minute to offer some insight on booking a Montana elk hunt with us here at Dome Mountain. As an outfitter, we offer “Outfitter Guaranteed Tags". What this means is there’s no waiting and wondering once you book a hunt, no lottery, no draw, no gambles-you’re guaranteed a tag. Once we’ve received your innitial deposit, we’ll mail you the license information (not complicated at all if you know yourself well enough).
The license is the easy part, the preparation might be just a little harder. Matter of fact, the only thing that’s tougher than preparing so you get the most out of your hunt is the anticipation in counting the days leading up to your hunt. I work with each individual client to make sure we cover all the bases, from physical preparation, having the right gear and getting in the right mental mindset. It’s our goal here at Dome Mountain to make sure you have a hunt that exceeds not only your expectations, but industry standards.
I highly suggest you call our references. I can’t list these numbers on the sight, so you’ll have to contact me direct, toll free at 800-313-4868. All of our references are voluntary, they’re not paid to say anything, they will tell you how it is. It’s important that their description of the hunt closely mirrors your ideas of what type of hunt your looking for.
Upon booking a hunt we can give you the dates of your hunt, discuss initial details, and from that point on, the anticipation begins. Keep in mind, the only dumb questions might be the ones you don’t ask. I’ve not heard one dumb question in planning over 10,000 hunts, so you’ll be fine. Our hunters have been successful in the past because they recognize our operation as something they know they’re going to enjoy. Give us a call, lets find out if this hunt is for you.
Thanks again and may you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday!
See You on the Mountain
