Wyoming is God’s country, and we invite you to come see it for yourself.

Enjoy trophy big game archery and rifle hunts in the heart of the Bridger Teton National Forest. This top-notch hunting camp is owned and operated by a fourth generation family of outfitters and Wyoming natives, Colby and Codi Gines. Our hunts, for the most part are tough, rigorous adventures in some of the most awesome, rugged landscape in North America. You don’t have to be Charles Atlas to be successful on our hunts but you’ll enjoy yourself more if you are in shape and practice at home a lot with your rifle and/or bow. Our success ratio and average trophy size compares favorably with any wilderness outfitter in North America. The Yellowstone fires of ’88 have caused increased forage production. Several mild winters in a row have enabled older trophy game to survive. These factors plus favorable hunting weather, for the most part, have given past hunters great success on all species. We hunt the same country made famous by Theodore Roosevelt, Jack O’Connor, Col. Townsend Whelen, Warren Page and other hunting greats. Our hunts are true, old-fashioned, western, mountain, pack train, horseback adventures. On your hunt, you can learn about horsemanship, horse packing, wildlife, geology, weather, history, wilderness ethics, camping, cooking, the cowboy way of life, and much more! You’ll learn glassing techniques, stalking-skills, game calling, natural history and wildlife habits. There are few secrets in hunting camp, we travel, work, hunt and live as a team and family. We’ll be eating lots of hearty food in camp: steaks, ham, bacon, sausage, turkey, vegetables, fruits, pies, bread, cakes, cookies, and candy bars. You’ll find our hunts and our camp to be the finest in Wyoming. We are located in the Bridger Teton National Forest also known as the Thorofare. Our area lies along the South East boundary of the Yellowstone National Park which is 2.2 million acres where hunting is not allowed. The word Thorofare itself was taken from the many Elk, Deer, Moose, Sheep, and Bear migration trails that run through the area. Our camp sets at an elevation of 8,600 feet and lies along Mountain Creek which drains into the Thorofare River.

We begin our regular season elk and big horn sheep hunts on morning number one at the Irma Hotel, downtown Cody, Wyoming at 6am. From here, we transport all hunters to Eagle Creek Trailhead. This trailhead is located just 5 miles from Yellowstone National Parks’ East Entrance. This is where we get the hunters acquainted with there horses and give short lessons if needed. All gear and supplies get packed onto the horses and mules by our expert packers and guides. Once our mule trains are packed and loaded, it’s time to hit the trail. You will be happy to know that a short distance of our ride is through spectacular, Yellowstone National Park. The ride to camp is 24 miles of the most beautiful country known to man. We like to take a short break for lunch about half way up the trail. Before you know it, we will be riding into our Mountain Creek camp. This camp is what you will proudly be calling home for the following eight days. Your adventure will be filled with extensive hunting, 3 huge meals a day, and an experience you will be sure to never forget. Call today to reserve your hunt!
