Horseback riding is the mainstay of your visit here. Miles and miles of trails take you through this special country of high meadows and dark, cool forests. Our experienced wranglers will select a horse for you based on your ability and past experience. An evening cookout ride with Western entertainment will undoubtedly be a high point of your vacation.
In addition, guided fishing excursions to nearby lakes and trout streams are offered. Some of the finest flyfishing in the West is found in the Dubois area. Cutthroat, brown, brook, and rainbow trout abound in crystal clear mountain waters.
For those who prefer to hike, we have numerous guided and unguided opportunities. For the photo enthusiast, we offer 360 degrees of unobstructed scenery. The Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are short drives away.
Evening activities vary. We have slide shows, cowboy poetry, horseshoes, campfires and rodeo. A Saturday night in the old west town of Dubois is a must! We also offer Wilderness Pack Trips, Walking Trips, and Fall hunting.
Our hunting area is the most magnificent Dunoir Valley located northwest of Dubois, Wyoming. The Dunoir remains one of the last truly abundant wildlife and virtually hunter - free areas in the state, if not the entire West. We provide nearly everything for your hunt such as saddles, rifle scabbards and saddle bags, and you will enjoy a comfortable, modern cabin and excellent, hearty meals. All you provide is license, rifle, ammunition, and other personal hunting gear. Please don't hesitate to call or write us for additional hunting information. You'll find the hunting excellent, the crew superbly qualified, and the country spectacular.
We'd love to have you along for the fun, excitement, and sheer pleasure of a true Rocky Mountain big game hunt!
"There is a place in Northwestern Wyoming to the Northeast of Jackson Hole and adjacent to Yellowstone National Park that is the largest intact Wilderness area in the lower 48 States"
Travel with us by horseback into this special country, home of many of the great mountain ranges of the West: the Tetons, the Wind Rivers, and the Absarokas.
The activities are varied and exciting - riding in search of wildlife: deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, trumpeter swans, eagles, bear, beaver; picnicking upon the grandest of high country, the Continental Divide; hiking into a patch of Rocky Mountain wildflowers as multi-colored as an artist's palette; fishing for cutthroat, brook, and rainbow trout in the cool, dark holes of the nearby river or creek.
The days are all yours in this Rocky Mountain solitude for fishing, hiking, flowers, warm sunshine, and evenings huddled around the campfire gasping at the canopy of stars.
