Elk Ridge Outfitters is a full-service operation.
If you show up with nothing, we can probably handle it. We have all the towels, bedding, pillows, and blankets at the lodge. Bring what you would normally use and need while hunting.
Before you pack
All your equipment including your gun needs to be properly sighted in within two weeks of your hunt dates, with the same ammunition that you plan to use during the hunt.
- buying additional ammunition is difficult because our hunt area is quite a distance from town
- you will have access to a gun range however, sighting in a rifle is time-consuming and we encourage you to sight your rifle before you arrive
- select shooting sticks that you have sighted with before
