Archery Elk Hunting

There is a chill in the air as your eyes open to the still darkness of a high mountain Montana morning. A loud shrill blasts mere yards from your tent, followed by another and another. The hunt is on.

A Stockton Outfitters’ archery hunt is just the ticket for an adrenaline addict. The reveille of bugling Bulls signals the beginning of archery season. Our guides, all excellent callers, specialize in guiding archers to trophy bulls. We take more than our share of “Pope and Young Record” Animals every year. Our elk are renowned for their superior genetics and the majesty of their racks. The biggest recorded bull taken from our camp scored a massive 419 gross. (see our world record in the Trophy Room)

A Stockton Bow Hunt is guaranteed to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, as your guide will use an array of calls to bring your trophy screaming toward you. With Big Bulls whistling from 10 to 30 yards, your opportunity for success is uncommonly high. Over 80% of our hunters get a good shot at an elk.

Both mule deer and white tails range the same areas as our elk so opportunity to take a second trophy is high as well.

Client Testimonials

Sam Broyles, Dallas, TXArchery - '12

Thanks for the awesome hunting adventure. The time we spent on the mountain taught me to be a better hunter and gave me memories to last a lifetime. Bowhunting for elk has always been a dream of mine and Stockton Outfitters exceeded my expectations. You showed true professionalism on the final day of the hunt, hwen you hunted as hard or harder as the previous days. My missed opportunities still run through my head; however, there will be more hunts in our future.

Tim Gardner (by Kim) - Grasonville, MDArchery - '12

Tim has not stopped smiling yet. Everything was perfect and he is already planning another trip. Stockton's staff was amazing and really made everything flow. Mark, you were wonderful in helping me book this trip for Tim's 50th Birthday. You were exetremely professional and your knowledge of the lands and animals were spot on. Personally I couldn't believe he was done and home so early. We will forever sing your praises and he swears to do it again.

Ricky Young - Cleveland, TNArchery - '14

I had a great hunt and really appreciate all the hard work that was put into it. You have a first class camp, the best wilderness camp I have ever been in. The food was excellent, and Chef Kole did a wonderful job. I really enjoyed to talking to Skippy, I would have enjoyed hunting with either of you. You both seemed very knowledgeable and you worked hard to insure I got an elk. Even if I hadn't gotten an elk, I would have been happy with the whole experience, but it was nice to hunt with a guy who wanted me to get an elk as bad as I did!

Steve Gruber, Star of Limbsaver's Outdoor America (OLN)Archery - '05

We had over 14 encounters in 4 days of hunting with Stockton Outfitters, LLC. One of the biggest highlights of my carreer was when my guide and I staulked up on two bulls sparing at about 50 yards. I will hunt with Mark "Be the Elk" Shutey and Stockton Outfitters, any time, any place, and any where. Stockton Outfitters is truly a class above the rest.

John Crawford - Fort Wayne, INArchery - '09

My hunt with Stockton Outfitters this fall was excellent. The calling, the stalk through the woods, and my taking the difficult quartering toward shot comprise one of my best hunting memories. The Bull dropping in 10 yards was a nice bonus. Great Hunt!! Thanks Mark.

Mark Bittrick - Janesville, WIArchery - '07

This was the fifth tent camp I hunted elk from. Yours was the nicest I've been in. The lantern on the walk way, the carpet in the tents and the table and chair were a nice touch. But the icing on the cake was my Bull. Thanks for your honesty and a great experience.
