TROPHY ELK HUNTS
Trophy Rocky Mountain bull elk are one of the most sought-after big game animals in the world. Hunting these 340-inch+ animals is as difficult as it is rewarding. At South Creek Outfitters, we know that location, knowledge, patience, skill, and commitment make up the formula for a successful harvest of a trophy bull elk.
WHO WE ARE
For more than twenty years, South Creek Outfitters has guided big game hunts in the West on some of the best private land in the country. With over seven decades of combined experience and expert knowledge among our guides, we feel we have a competitive advantage that is tough to beat. Although we cannot guarantee you will harvest, we do guarantee we will make every effort to provide you with an enjoyable and comfortable hunting experience.
WHAT WE OFFER
We offer five-day hunts led by one of our professional, experienced guides. All our hunts are guided one-on-one.
Our season dates are September 1 to September 25.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR HUNT
If you plan to fly into Salt Lake City International, we can arrange your transportation to and from the airport and will meet you at the property the day before your hunt starts. After you arrive, you will be introduced to your guide and enjoy a great home-cooked meal.
Our camp has all the comforts of home: electricity, internet, running water, phone, satellite TV, and comfortable camp trailers to sleep in. To see a detailed list of needed items to bring, please download the packing checklist below.
Before your hunt, we will review the property rules, answer any questions you might have, and we will have you shoot your gun for accuracy. A typical morning starts with a light breakfast, then, you and your guide will head out for the morning hunt before first light in one of our trucks. We will have lunch for you when you return and, after the evening hunt is over, a home-cooked dinner. We also provide all drinks, snacks, and goodies. (Please note we do not provide alcohol.)
Once you have harvested your animal, your guide will be responsible for capping, cleaning, quartering and transporting your bull to camp. Your guide can help you arrange to have the meat processed and the trophy prepared.

All our hunts take place on private property consisting of over 80,000 acres of trophy bull elk paradise. The scenery is breathtaking and varied: rolling hills; sagebrush flats; alfalfa fields; deep, pine-covered draws; and peaks reaching above 8,500 feet. This variety will accommodate nearly any type of hunter and hunting party—whether you prefer to hike, to drive and glass from trucks, or to sit in a blind. Our camp and properties are set up perfectly for those who wish to enjoy their hunt with son(s), daughter(s), or a significant other.
Over the years, our success rate is 80-95% for 320-inch+ bull elk. This property always produces a handful of bulls that score over 350. Please reference the photo section of our website to see the quality of bulls taken on this property.
Our base camp has all the comforts of home: satellite TV, electricity, WiFi internet, toilets, showers, and comfortable camp trailers. Cell phone reception should be good in camp.
At South Creek Outfitters, one valuable benefit we provide is guaranteed tags. You will not need to draw this permit. Once your hunt is booked and paid for, we will supply you with the proper tags and licenses.
All elk hunts are set up in a one-on-one format with you and your guide, and are scheduled for five days.
