HUNT

Ruby Valley is a magical place for sportsmen. Our hunts are fair chase and we abide by all game laws set by the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks. We accommodate both archery and rifle private land hunts in Southwestern Montana. 

We offer 1:1 hunts with experienced guides, each hunt is tailored to meet the hunter's needs. Hunts are all inclusive and include lodging, meals, beverages, transportation, taxidermy drop-off, meat processing drop-off and application services.

We ask for 25% deposit at booking to reserve your UTV and your bed, neither of which you will want to be without! All booking, hunt and payment details will be on a case-by-case basis. We book with a limited number of sportsmen each year to do our part in conserving wildlife for generations to come.

BIG GAME COMBO

Montana offers a unique opportunity to harvest two big game animals during the same hunt, deer (whitetail or mule deer) and elk.

 

Montana is home to one of the largest elk populations in the country. Rack and Reel Montana hunts several different ranches which offer the ability to hunt different herds of elk throughout the week.

 

The Ruby Valley is home to great deer hunting. You'll be hard pressed to find better general unit bucks and country. Spectacular scenery, wall worthy bucks, and a hardworking outfitter and guides will create an experience you won't soon forget.

Hunters can expect to see elk and mule deer on the same day, while whitetail properties are lower in the valley. In 2021, Rack and Reel guides provided hunters with 100% shot opportunity of both elk and deer.

BLACK BEAR

When the snow comes off, hungry bears are out and about in the spring. This is the perfect time to find them feeding on fresh shoots of green grass on sunny slopes. This is typically a more laid back hunt with opportunity to see color phase bears. Montana black bear hunts are spot and stalk. Black Bear tags can be purchased over the counter and require the hunter to pass a bear identification test prior to hunting.

BISON

This is an excellent opportunity to harvest this magnificent animal without waiting for years in a draw that some states require. Although not a wild bison hunt, a bison makes a great addition to any trophy room. Bison can be hunted exclusively or added to any big game hunt for an impressive combo.
