TRAILS WEST
OUTFITTERS

2016 CAMP REPORT 

The final chapter for the 2016 season is now closed for TRAILS WEST OUTFITTERS.  We would like to take this opportunity to look back on our year and reflect on the outstanding fly fishing trips, pack trips and fall hunting season. 

Summer Memories… It goes without saying, we experience some of the most outstanding fly fishing in the Greater Yellowstone Area, on the Greybull River.  The comfortable base camp and close proximity of the camp to the Greybull River provided maximum time on the water.  We enjoyed a number of family and group adventures who made memories for a lifetime.  They enjoyed riding the high country vistas viewing wildlife, wildflowers and in general just spending time in a comfortable camp setting that provided dramatic sunrises and sunsets.

The Hunting Season… The elk numbers on the Greybull River continue to be strong and we average a 75% - 90% success rate with 100% opportunity for our hunters.  We continue to see and have the opportunity to hunt mature, quality bulls in our hunt areas.  The high country of the Greybull River is an outstanding area for Bighorn Sheep hunting and we were pleased with the quality of the sheep that our hunters took home.  It goes without saying, our success is due to the professional and talented guides, camp cooks and staff who continue to provide top notch guiding and assistance in making our wilderness camps the best to be found.  Thank you to the crew of TRAILS WEST OUTFITTERS!

The Application Period for a WY 2017 Elk License...The application period for a WY Elk License is just around the corner (January 1 - 31, 2017).  Attention Late Season Cow Elk Hunters….  If you are interested in hunting cow elk in 2017, we encourage you to apply during the January application period.  For your convenience, we have provided WY G & F Applications Dates in this newsletter.   

Our Announcement...This was a year of milestones for Trails West Outfitters. This year was the 30th year of outfitting for Bob.  Over the years, many wonderful clients have become life-long friends.  As the years have passed, we realized what an opportunity we have been blessed with.  We have often referred to the Stuart Creek camp as an “Office With a View”.   It truly can’t get any better when you are in the mountains!  The years of operation included the Deer Lake Camp and Gem Lake Camp in the Bighorns and the Stuart Creek and Anderson camps located on the Greybull River.

Although the journey was not always easy, it was always rewarding.  We shared many laughs over dinner about phenomenal fly fishing days….the struggles and triumphant victory of successfully hunting wild sheep...and outstanding stalks and the taking of trophy elk. 

At this point in our Camp Report it is time to announce that we have sold the Trails West Outfitters outfitting business.  We could not be more pleased that Josh Martoglio and Cole and Elaine Benton, will be taking the reins for the outfitting camps on the Greybull River.  They bring years of outfitting experience to this new venture.  They have extensive experience in big game hunting and summer pack trips. 

Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our past clients for their commitment and dedication over the years to our outfitting business and for the many friendships that we have formed.  We also wish to congratulate Josh, Cole and Elaine for continuing the legacy of Outfitting on the Greybull River.
