Archery Elk and Mule Deer Hunting

Archery hunting at Nine Mile is fabulous! Our bow hunters experience nearly 100% shot opportunity rates on legal bulls (4 points or better on one side). In our area, either-sex private-land archery elk tags are over-the-counter. In the mornings we typically walk and call, and you can expect to hear numerous bulls bugling each morning. In fact, when conditions are right, it's not uncommon to hear nearly a dozen bulls a day. In the evenings, we sit on one of many strategically placed tree stands or platform stands watching wallows, water holes, or agricultural fields. All stands are placed with the hunter's best opportunities in mind and provide close-up encounters with the elk. Our guides are archers themselves and know what it takes to get you in close to that bull you've been waiting for and get you a good close shot. Many of our archery hunters have several opportunities at legal bulls in the course of a 5-day hunt. The physical demands on this hunt are fairly easy, as far as elk hunting goes, but you should be prepared to walk 1-3 miles a day at an elevation of 7000'- 8000'.

All hunters are asked to be proficient shooting fixed blade broadheads out to at least 30 yards. Most shots are close, but the more comfortable you are at shooting out to 30 yards, the better your chances of success will be. If you've hunted other places and found slow action in archery season, then this is the place to come. We've got elk! Bowhunting for mule deer is available on a limited basis at Nine Mile, so if you're interested, please contact us for availability.

Wounding Policy:
If you wound an animal (draw blood), every attempt will be made to recover the animal. If it is not recovered, then your hunt will be over.
