Hunting with Wayne Hill Outfitting for my first archery elk hunt was an awesome experience! The accommodations and food was excellent. Paul (my guide) did an amazing job guiding me through the rugged terrain and called in 3 nice bulls. Even though I wasn’t able to connect and close the deal, I look forward to returning for some unfinished business.

James Maciuk, TN 615-405-7611

Wayne and his crew did an outstanding job. Jared, my guide put me on a bull but I missed. They worked super hard everyday to make it happen. Food and accommodations have been top-notch. I will be back!

Enjoyed our entire week. Wayne and Annette run a first class operation. beautiful lodge, great food and knowledgeable guides. Jason (aka Smiley) got me into elk and places I didn’t think I could make it into. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality  archery elk hunt.

These guys will give you all they have to put you on the bull you’re looking for. The lodge is super clean and comfortable. The food is nothing short of amazing. The guides will truly give you everything they have to get you in position for the shot. If you are looking for a public land hunt in Montana, this is the place.

Enjoyed entire week. wayne and Annette are very nice people. Lodge is beautiful. Food really good. Guides and Wayne are bery knowledgeable. My guide Jake had me on bull elk 5 of the 7 days. I missed a bull at 20 yards.

Joe Camera, OH 440-315-3017

Wayne and Annette run a great operation. Food was excellent, lodge was great. All the guides were extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and how to get on the bulls. Paul was my guide. He had me on the bulls the first hour in the woods. He worked his butt off to get me into elk. Had seveal times I was able to knock an arrow. Even drew back a few times. Just not able to get a clear shot. but that is hunting. I won’t go anywhere else for my next hunt.

This hunt was my 70th birthday present to myself. Wayne, Annette and the crew made sure it was an excellent hunt and an overall excellent experience. I had a prime opportunity and just plain missed. I will do my best to return in the near future.

Before I even start talking about the elk hunting let me first say, the folks at Wayne Hill Outfitting were an absolute joy to be around. Annette is as pleasant as could be and Wayne is a riot. they both tell some great stories. The guides are all awesome, and they’re funny as hell. It’s like a fraternity. The food was amazing and there was plenty of it. The lunches were especially good. All in all I give the lodge 5 stars. PS Wayne’s trophy room is amazing.

Now for the elk hunting. This was my first ever guided hunt, and first elk hunt. I’ve both heard and read some horror stories, and rest assured you can put those fears behind you here. The guides work extremely hard to find the elk and get you a shot. Jared was my guide and he would Routinely go out in the evenings to bugle to find good spots for the next morning. I was happy to have 3 close encounters with a large bull and one shot opportunity. Even though I didn’t fill my tag, it was still an amazing experience. I hope to come back soon.

First of all I would like to thank everyone at Wayne Hill for making a lifetime dream come true. I couldn’t ask for a better experience for my first elk hunt. I was able to kill my bull on the first morning out. My guides, Jared and Micah were not only knowledgeable on calling and getting the bull in close, but are great guys to be on the mountain with. And a huge thank you to all the guys that went and packed it out for me. I can’t thank you all enough for the experience. “TOP NOTCH”

I have hunted with Wayne Hill 5 times, killing 3 bulls, and have never been disappointed. This past year my guide, Mark, and I hunted hard for 7 days but stuck with it and killed on the final morning. Mark never gave up despite a frustrating week. That’s a testament to how hard Wayne’s guides will work to get clients in front of animals. Wayne runs a great outfit and pays close attention to every detail to maximize every hunter’s opportunity to be successful. Annette runs the lodge as well as any five star hotel. The food is great. Wayne, Annette and the guides are great people who know how to hunt elk and how to make you feel at home. I hope to be back for hunt number 6.

  I had two opportunities, one at 10 yards and one at 50 yards. Saw 6 different bulls

Every aspect of the week long hunt was excellent as always! As long as you guys are in business, I will never hunt elk anywhere else! Planning on 2019! Can’t wait!!!

I called Wayne Hill Outfitting last January and talked to Annette. I asked her what would be my best option to take an elk on a once in a lifetime hunt. She told me bow hunting with them would give me the best opportunity.  So I bought a bow and practiced every day and walked every night to get ready. I am almost 61 years old. My guide Paul was 26. I got terrible blisters on my feet the first day of he hunt because I wore the wrong boots. Paul was great and sometimes even pulled me up the mountains. We got within 100 yards of a bull on the second day. Within 50 yards on the 6th day, but I did not feel comfortable taking the shot. Paul never gave up on me and we harvested a bull elk on the last day of the hunt. God is good! Wayne Hill is a great outfitter. The food was great and everyone treated me like a king. Thanks Annette for all the bandages and the warm meals. Wayne is  very, very knowledgeable. Paul is a great guide.

came again in this year, 2018. Killed nice 5×5 on his second day. Paul guided him again.

Wayne Hill Outfitting exceeded my expectations on every level. This outfit will provide you the best in meals, experienced guides, very comfortable accommodations, and customer service from the time you arrive until the time you depart. I took a nice 5×5 bull and am grateful for the “all in” mentality of the staff that made it possible. This was an amazing place to hunt and hope to be back much sooner than later!

This was my thirteenth hunt with Wayne and Annette, 8 of the hunts were archery elk. The first morning at 8AM Wayne called in a nice 5 x 5 inside of 25. Every archery hunt at Wayne Hill’s I have taken the shot or passed.

Couldn’t of asked for a better place to go for my first elk hunting experience. From the guides knowing every inch of mountain, to coming back to some of the best food and laughs you could ask for after a long day hunting. Had bulls within 50 yards and was able to put down a 4×3. Will be back next year to try and get another bull.

wounded one missed one

The bull came straight in and offered no shot. When he was less than 2 yards I had to move my bow so his rack would not hit it.”
