Scouting Report

Because we perform thorough scouting, we give you the best shot at the the largest animals our units have to offer. Peak hunting season starts in the fall and starts at higher elevations where the animals were congregating during the summer. As the weather gets colder, the animals and the hunting move lower in elevation to escape the cold and snowfall. Certain hunts are best performed after fresh snowfall, such as Mountain Lion and Bobcat.
