About Avalanche Basin Outfitters
We offer premium guided hunts in the Big Belt Mountains of Central Montana.
Our goal is to provide enjoyable, top quality hunting trips for Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer and Antelope.
All hunts are fair chase only.
We are located in the Big Belt Mountain Range northwest of White Sulphur Springs, MT, area number 446. We hunt 4 private ranches totaling 46,000 acres for elk hunting. These ranches include 7 main drainages, the largest being Beaver Creek and Elk Creek. The ridges and south slopes are covered with scattered timber and numerous basins. Elevations vary from 4,650 ft. to 6,900 ft. The tops of these ridges offer miles of open parks and benches where much of our hunting takes place. The north slopes are steep with heavy red fir, lodge pole pine, and quaking aspen timber for cover.
Destination point is White Sulphur Springs, Montana. The closest commercial airport is Helena Regional Airport in Helena, Montana. We provide all transportation to and from camps. We also provide airport pickup on request.
We work out of a modern camp during the week. The camp consists of a clean, comfortable cook house, propane heated cabins (2 people per cabin), and hot showers. We can drive into the camp and travel by 4x4 vehicles to different areas and drainages throughout the week. This enables hunters to access much of the area and harvest the best animals available during their hunt. It also enables us to accommodate people of mixed ages and physical abilities. We offer both 2 hunters per 1 guide, and 1 hunter per 1 guide rates to insure personal service.
We provide all camp, equipment, food, guides and accommodations while you are hunting. You will need to bring your personal effects, sleeping bag, binoculars, ammunition, boots and clothing. You are also responsible for license fees, taxidermy fees, meat processing & shipping.
