You can try Luke Novich of 4 Dot outfitters, based out of Twin Bridges. He bought the operation from Merritt Pride (Lost Fork Outfitters) I did some guide work for Merritt years ago when he operated out of the Madison Valley.

4 Dot hunts in the Ruby Range, and has a combo Elk/Deer hunt @ $5800 (2x1)

Thanks @gillettehunter you beat me to it on posting a link to my 2020 hunt!

@Nature Boy , I have hunted with Rising Son Outfitters multiple times over the past 20 years. For rifle hunts, they are booked up about 3 years in advanced and a week long rifle hunt is about $7k, plus another $1k for non-resident deer/elk combo tag. Montana also has a preference point system that you need to probably do about 2 years ahead of your hunt to be sure to draw tags.

This is my 2017 hunt report

Thank you. Did you hunt with them?
No. I’m in the same boat as you. Looking for a cheaper elk hunt. I’ve spoken to both gentleman and both are nice guys. I know Individuals who hunted with elk creek with positive feedback.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
