K Lazy 3’s Montana Wilderness elk hunts are conducted in Hunting District 280, which is one of only three areas in the state that offer early season bugle hunts (rifle), starting September 15th. Located in the Scapegoat Wilderness, HD 280 has a brow-tine bull regulation and that produces an excellent mature bull-to-cow ratio. Our elk numbers are above Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks objectives; this also enables our hunters to harvest a cow, should they desire. The elk hunts are limited to 6 hunters per hunt.
Days start early in hunting camp, with an early horseback ride out after a hearty family-style breakfast, putting hunters in a prime hunting area before dawn. Elk hunting days are generally spent on foot, ending up back at camp or at the pickup point where the horses are waiting to carry hunters back to camp. For those who prefer a more relaxed hunt, a short hike from camp is available and can also be productive.
Hunting camp is down right comfortable
Guests will enjoy a large, wholesome family-style dinner and the opportunity to trade stories about the one you bagged (or the one that got away). The accommodations in the K Lazy 3 hunting camps consist of an 18×24 cook tent, 14×17 sleeping tents (each holds up to 4), a shower tent, and a tack/equipment tent. Each sleeping tent holds cots and foam pads, a wood stove, plenty of room for personal gear, and is comfortable and prepared for all types of weather. Meals are prepared by a fulltime cook and served family-style in the cook tent for breakfast and dinner, with daily sack lunches provided for each hunter. Guests will enjoy nourishing meals of roasts, ham, turkey, steaks and plenty of fresh baked goodies.
