Heppner Unit Public Land

This hunt takes place in the Heppner GMU in eastern Oregon. We operate under a special use permit allowing us to guide on public lands in the Heppner Ranger District of the Umatilla National Forest. The Heppner unit is one of the most applied for hunting units in the state issuing less than 700 tags a year to over 4000 applicants. It is a tough tag to draw as a non-resident taking between 5-6 years of applying before drawing the tag. The hunt offered is only available to non-Oregon residents. For 2018 there are 3 available. The terrain in the area is mountains with pine forests, along with some steep canyons. Expect to hike 8-10 miles a day.  This hunt is fully outfitted with 2 hunters per 1 guide. Lodging is in heated canvas wall tents with good hot meals prepared by our full time chef and camp host. Plan on arriving the day prior to the hunt season and leaving the day after. I have included the license and tag fees in the price of this hunt as each hunter is issued an outfitter tag which is guaranteed.

Trophy Bull Elk Muzzleloader Hunt

This hunt takes place on public lands only in the Heppner GMU. There are only 27 total tags which will be issued and only 1 goes to a non-resident. We have had 100% opportunity on this hunt. Often the bulls are still bugling and its at the tail end of the rut. The hunt dates for 2019 season will be October 12th-18th this will be a 7 day hunt with 1 on 1 guiding. Food and lodging will be provided. Below is a picture of the bull Frank harvested during the 2015 season, it was 1 of many bulls Frank had a chance to take. Frank also hunted with us in 2017. I get the tag every 2 years.
