THE CAMP If your are looking for an outfitter who can provide a comfortable camp in a pristine wilderness setting, then let us at the BUCKHORN RANCH do it for you. Our camp, located on Silvertip Creek in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, part of the Flathead National Forest, has been in continuous use for over fifty years. We provide heated tents and delicious home-cooked meals at breakfast and suppertime. A sack lunch is provided for the noon meal and coffee is available anytime in camp.
"Silvertip City" hunting camp is accessible only by hiking or on horseback. We use only sensible well-trained horses, but good physical condition is helpful as we pack in about twelve miles to hunting districts 140, 151 and 150.
We hunt mainly for elk, but we also hunt mule deer, mountain goats and black bear. Mountain goats are hunted on a drawn permit only. Non-resident licenses are obtained from the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, Helena, Montana 59601, (406) 444-2535. We will be happy to assist you in the application process.
The BUCKHORN RANCH operates just one camp, concentrating on quality rather than quantity. Our 10 day hunts consist of a maximum of six hunters unless one larger party books the entire hunt. While you may not see elk every day of the hunt we have had excellent success in the past and our experienced guides help you to have a safe, successful, enjoyable hunt. Our standard hunt is one guide for every two hunters and our trophy bull elk hunt is one guide per hunter.
When dates are confirmed, a deposit is required with the balance due at the beginning of the hunt in cash, cashiers check, or money order. (80% of the deposit will be returned only if a license is not available due to sell out.) We meet you at the motel and travel to the trail head the morning of the hunt.
If you are an archer, we can provide a guided or semi-guided hunt in September. Or, you might like to inquire about a spring black bear hunt from Apdl 15 to June 1 or a whitetail, mule deer or moose (by permit) hunt in November in the Eureka area.
Should you decide to come hunt with us, you should plan on bringing a cold weather sleeping bag, rubber and leather footwear and warm clothing, including longjohns. Rain gear may also be necessary as the weather is unpredictable anytime of the year in the beautiful Bob Marshall Wilderness. Look for soft wool outer garments as practically all of the newer synthetic materials are noisy in the brush.
Hunting dates are as follows:
September 14 to September 23
September 26 to October 5
October 8 to October 17
October 20 to October 29
November 1 to November 10
*November 13 to November 22
*Late Hunt also in Eureka Area

Located in the heart of "Whitetail Country", we at Buckhorn Ranch can provide you with a quality Montana deer hunt. (Whitetail or Mule Deer). We operate from our home place here on Pinkham Creek with easy access to the Kootenai National Forest lands surrounding us. Meals & lodging are included in this 5 day hunt.
While it might be possible to arrange for an earlier deer hunt our usual beginning date is November 13th and continues through the Thanksgiving week-end closing date. A large percentage of these deer hunts are taking place during the rut.
