Welcome to Wyoming
Expeditions. We specialize in ELK HUNTING! Unlike many outfitters in the west,
we don’t claim to hunt numerous species, nor do we want to. We do what we love -
ELK HUNTING and it is our PASSION. We love hunting elk in the rut and in the
migration. That is why we hunt the “Thorofare“ just outside of Yellowstone.
Elk hunting camp is in
Northwest Wyoming in the Teton Wilderness of the Bridger-Teton National Forest 9
miles from the Southeastern corner of Yellowstone National Park. We hunt the
headwaters of the Thorofare River. The “Thorofare” is considered to be the
entire drainage that drains to the Thorofare River in Wyoming elk area 60. The
Thorofare is so named because of the migration routes for the big game in this
drainage - it is a Thorofare!

In 2010, We had 30 elk hunters who:
We recognize that it is important for outfitters to prove their stats: Here are
the pictures of the elk from 2010:
- Killed 23 bulls (77%)
- 29 / 30 (97%) shot at an elk .
- 30 /30 (100%) had opportunity .
All outfitters have good web site; however, they need to substantiate their
claims. Our group photos above as well as our free magazine does just that.

successful hunt should not be measured just by the kill but by the memories that
our hunters carry with them for the rest of their life. If you seek a great
hunt, free chase, a true adventure and stories to tell your buddies, children or
grandchildren then you are on the right page. Bottom line, hunter success is so
good because there are so many elk in our area.
This is a remote
wilderness hunt and wilderness means no roads, no permanent improvements, no
chainsaws nor generators. This is an old fashion expedition where traveling is
done on horses and mules. Hunters are provided a knowledgeable hunting guide, a
cook and hot meals, a wrangler to care for the horses and mules, spacious wall
tents with a wood stove and a cot with a foam pad. We ride out of camp every
morning into some of the most awesome mountain country that God created. We
prefer to glass, call, spot and stalk but we will accommodate our hunter’s
preference. The elk in our area are very vocal and respond well to calls
especially in the early hunts. The elevation of camp is around 8500 feet and the
tree line is about 10,000 feet and the elk will be somewhere in between. We
offer 8 day hunts with one day to travel to camp, 6 days of hunting and one day
to travel back to Cody. It will be an unforgettable experience that will keep
calling you back every fall.
OUR HUNTING AREA SO GOOD?
1) We are in
Wyoming and there is a drawing for elk tags via a lottery. Tags are limited and
therefore hunting pressure is limited but not difficult to draw. Wyoming Game
and Fish does a great job of taking care of the elk herds by limiting hunting.
2) We have a huge area. Our area is 9 miles in one direction and 6 miles in the
other direction. Although not exactly square, it is a huge area. Some outfitters
have a great hunting area but because they book too many hunters with too small
of an area, they push the elk out of their area. We do not do this. A huge
hunting area alone does not provide great hunting, so read on.
3) We are close to Yellowstone National Park which is 2.2 million acres where
hunting is not allowed.
4) We are far from the road. To get to our camp, we travel 7 to 8 hours on
horses and mules. When hunting season starts, the elk don’t always stand near
5) There are thousands of acres of grass. There is plenty of feed for the elk.
Even the woods have a lot of grass. The woods are not so thick to keep the grass
6) There is a migration from Yellowstone that moves through our area. If you
catch it right, it is a sight to see. The Thorofare was named this because of
the migration routes.
7) Rifle hunting in the
rut. Yes - you heard it right. Rifle season starts September 10 and our first
three rifle hunts are in various stages of the rut. If that does not get your
blood pumping then this hunt is not for you. The elk are very vocal in our area
and respond well to both bugling and cow calling. Sometimes they even come
If you want to hunt with an outfit that is passionate about elk hunting and
guides that just can’t wait for opening day of elk season - the same as children
can’t wait for Christmas, then you are on the right web page.
I invite you to look at our photo gallery.
If you like to
read hunting stories, then sign up for our magazine. It will have a rundown of
our hunting season and best of all, it will have stories of adventure from our
hunters. Our magazine
should be complete sometime in November and I would like to send you one,

by, you will be glad you did. Plan on spending the whole day.
