At the south end of the Gros Ventre range, Green River Outfitters offers deer and elk hunts, as well as a wide variety of other summer and winter activities, such as fishing and snowmobiling. Bill Webb has operated out of his base camp, Rim Buck Lodge, along Jack Creek for the last 15 years. This permanent, historical cabin provides a rustic atmosphere perfect for the hunting experience. It also provides comfort and protection for those early winter storms that can occur anytime during hunting season. Camp comes complete with a sauna, and even teepees during warm weather. The equipment and camps are more than adequate but not luxurious, and the horses come from good mountain stock.
Horses are important here, since much of the best deer hunting is in steep, rugged country. The terrain rises steadily to the crest of the range, which is also the eastern border of the Gros Ventre Wilderness. Be forewarned. This isn't easy hunting! You need to be in condition to take advantage of the hunting potential. While horses are used to get into hunting country, much of the actual hunting can involve walking at altitudes between 8,000 and 10,000 feet.
Once you leave camp, you'll be in elk country, riding through a series of rolling, aspen-covered hills with interspersed meadows and black timber as you climb steadily higher. I have hunted this area many times, and my son, Mark, guided for Webb years ago, so I can say for certain that trophies are available........(continued)
