Enjoy big game archery and rifle trophy hunts in the heart of the Washakie Wilderness’ Shoshone National Forest. This top quality hunting camp is owned and operated by a third generation outfitter and Wyoming native, Carl Sauerwein.
We take pride in serving you with top-notch guides, cooks, wranglers and horses. We offer fully guided hunts for Elk, Big Horn Sheep, Mule Deer, Moose, Mountain Goat and Antelope that are second to none. Come check out our wide variety of wildlife spanning in the areas between Cody and Jackson Hole!
We specialize in elk hunting and feel we are second to none with the quality of hunt we offer. We offer both archery and rifle hunts from our wilderness tent camp. We access the camp and hunt from horses which allow us to move easily thru the back country. With resident elk numbers strong and a great migration we have a high success on 5 and 6 point bulls. Many of our hunters have killed some of the best and biggest bulls in the state of Wyoming and have received awards for them.
Our archery hunts are done in September during the height of the rut. These hunts are exciting and challenging and will prove to be a trip of a life time. With a camp history of 90% opportunity and a 33% kill rate on mature bulls (We base our success more on the experience and the quality of the hunt). These hunts are great for both the beginning archer to the most experienced. We offer Three 7 day hunts in September and have 4 to 6 hunters per week.
We offer Three 7 day rifle hunts during the general season in October. We hunt from our wilderness tent camp and use horses to access the area. With a strong resident heard and a great migration we have the opportunity to hunt mature bulls all season long. With an average of 6 hunters per week in camp our clients can enjoy great success on 5 and 6 point bulls. Please contact us for more information.
Late Season Bull Elk Hunts (November & December)
Late season bull elk tags are truly some of the coveted most coveted licenses in Wyoming and the western United States. Boulder Basin Outfitters offers Trophy bull elk hunts in many of the top areas in Northwest Wyoming. Growing up in an outfitting family in the Cody, Wyoming area I have 100+ years of combined experience and 30+ years of hands on experience of hunting trophy bulls. My Guides and I have guided many clients to record book bulls in Wyoming and have received top awards and recognition for this. Please contact us for more information if you are interested in these trophy hunts and the areas we hunt.
We offer mule deer hunts from our ranch house and our wilderness camp. We use horses to access migration areas and winter range on the wilderness. We have a high success rate on 4 and 5 point bucks and they score 150 inches and up. We offer three 5 day hunts in late October and early November. We also offer combo hunts with elk and antelope.
Big Horn Sheep
I was born and raised in the Wapiti Valley and have lived my entire life on the same ranch.
My Grandfather and my Father were outfitters and well known sheep hunters. I grew up scouting sheep and hunting them with my father. I have been hunting sheep ever since I can remember. I feel there is no greater thrill than hunting these beautiful Big Horn Sheep.
Our Big Horn Sheep hunting areas are 2, 3, 4, & 5 with trophy rams in each of these areas. These tags are very difficult to draw so we place a strong commitment to finding you the ram of your choice. Pre-hunt scouting for rams is an important part of the service we offer. These hunts are done in rugged mountains and require physical fitness.
With the preference point system now in place in Wyoming, we suggest that you purchase preference points every year, even if you are not ready to go on your big horn sheep dream hunt. This will improve your chances of a draw at which time you are ready to apply.
Our Sheep camps are spike camps that have an experienced guide and a wrangler/cook.
The spike camps are made up of Teepee tents and a cook fly to shelter you from the elements while you enjoy good wholesome meals.
Spike camps make the rams more easily accessible but you will find them warm and comfortable.
Having the wrangler/cook in camp makes it so that all the guide and hunter have to do is hunt that trophy Big Horn Sheep of your dreams.
Most of our hunting is done on horseback and hiking.
Patience is the name of the game with Big Horn Sheep hunting.
The hunter’s patience determines the size of ram taken.
Our hunts are 10 days. One day in and one day out with 8 full days of hunting.
Longer hunts can be arranged if desired.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
Our Mule We hunt many areas through Wyoming for antelope. We hunt on both public land and private ranches. These are high success hunts and are fun and exciting for hunters of all ages and abilities. We offer both archery and rifle hunts in September & October.
Moose and Mt. Goat
If you are interested in hunting Moose or Mt. Goat, please contact us for more information. For any other pricing on our big game hunts visit our rates and information page.
Most of our Black Bear hunting is done from our camp in Boulder Basin. Spring Archery is the 15th – 30th of April. Spring Rifle is May 1st – June 15th.
These are 7 day hunts. We use the sight and stalk method as baiting is not permitted. Hunt dates are flexible.
Fall Black Bear hunting will be combined with an elk license. The cost of this combination is an additional $500. After you fill your elk tag, this gives you the opportunity to hunt the remaining duration of the hunt. (Bear licenses must be purchased in addition to the elk license.) The season is dependent on the mortality rate of female bears.
