If you have always dreamed of harvesting a Rocky Mountain elk, or bettering the one that you already have, this is the hunt for you. We have a large resident herd of elk with a very high bull to cow ratio. Natural winter range and feed grounds are close by so we are not dependent on migration.
The terrain varies from rolling ridges of quaking aspen and pines to large north slope timber. All Rocky Mountain elk hunting is off of horses. We scout our area ahead of time and have many of our biggest bulls located prior to the season. For general season elk hunting, you will not find a better quality hunt. We have extremely high success and opportunity rates. This is high adventure, mountain, horseback hunting at its best in country that is clearly some of God’s finest handiwork. The season runs from October 1st through the end of the month.

Or, should I say hunts – plural. I must say, when I originally signed up to hunt with NTO, I was just checking off one of my bucket list hunts, but now that I have actually hunted with Non-Typical Outfitters, I can’t wait to do it again. My opinion is that Robb Wiley, co-owner of NTO, has surrounded himself with some great guys and that also includes Robert, the cook.
I wanted to share my experience at fulfilling one of my bucket list items, a wilderness hunt on horseback and the opportunity to hunt with Non-Typical Outfitters. Robb Wiley, who helped me book this hunt recommended a solo hunt, just me and a guide. His strong encouragement was 100% spot on and the additional cost, although a burden, was worth every penny. I always had other priorities, like expenses that were more important at the time, but recently I figured, finally (more…)
Our 2017 Elk season was filled with super successes, as well as super challenges. Our high success rate continued for most of our elk hunts this year. We did, however, have a couple of hunts where the hunting was some of the most difficult we’ve had. During those hunts we experienced a low harvest rate. We killed some of the best bulls we have ever taken out of western Wyoming this year. We harvested a solid number of bulls over 300 inches and many just good old, solid 6 point bulls. (more…)
Our 2016 Rocky Mountain Elk Hunt was one of our best to date. We had a very high harvest rate on most hunts. We had the ability to show most of our hunters many, many bulls. Some of the bulls were as big as they get for western Wyoming. Even the hunts where we did not punch everyone’s tag were still very successful. Some hunters passed 6 point bulls because they were seeing bigger ones. We had opportunities on and killed several bulls over 300 inches. (more…)
Our 2015 Bull Elk season was extremely challenging. The weather was a double edged sword. We started the season with record rainfall in the spring and early summer which added to the spectacular horn growth. We had multiple Bulls over 340, as well as many over 300 inches located in our preseason scouting. Many of our early mule deer hunters commented, “Wow, I need to get an Elk tag for this area!” This was due, of course, to how many spectacular bulls they were seeing. (more…)
Brenda and I have not had the chance to hunt together since starting a family 6 years ago. After hearing the news that Brenda was ready to come out of “hunting retirement”, I did not book any clients for the last week of October, 2014, so that we could test drive a hunt that we are going to be offering beginning 2015. Check out Brenda’s 2014 bull!
Our 2014 elk season was arguably the best elk year we’ve had to date. Although mother nature did not cooperate with the weather, we were still able to harvest a tremendous lineup of bulls. Our continued high bull-to-cow ratio is proving to be a great asset to our hunts. We have some of the best general season hunting in Wyoming currently.
Our archery hunt was “off the chart” successful (more…)
The 2013 elk season for Non-Typical Outfitters produced some tremendous high mountain Wyoming elk hunting opportunities. We harvested some great public land bulls. Our high bull to cow ratio provided everyone with multiple bull opportunities, some hunters had chances at over 20 bulls on their hunt. Everyone may not have seen the big old bull in range, but got to see a lot of elk regardless of the week. (more…)
The season of 2012 was another good year for elk hunting at Non-Typical Outfitters. It was our first year operating our new camp and it was a great success! We started the year with an archery hunt chasing some 340″-350″ class bulls.
One bull in particular we dubbed “Romeo.” We had several close calls with Romeo, but in the end (more…)
The 2011 elk season was a year of great opportunity. By day 4 of the first hunt we felt like we had been given opportunities at over 75 bulls. We harvested some great bulls this year, built some new friendships and continued to enjoy some old friendships as well. One of our long time return clients killed the biggest bull of his hunting career this year… congratulations Mark! (more…)
