How To Hunt Elk in Wyoming in 2022

Hunting Elk in Wyoming with Table Mountain Outfitters

December 4th, 2023


The application window for a Wyoming elk license runs from January 4th to January 31st. That’s not a big window, so it’s time to get started! Here’s what you need to know, in order to hunt elk in Wyoming in 2024 or beyond…

Why Book with Table Mountain Outfitters to Hunt Elk in Wyoming?

It’s one of the best guided hunts you can choose in the western United States. Wyoming has healthy elk herds, and we hunt some of the best ground in the state. In fact, OUR ELK HUNTS typically have a 100% opportunity rate. Not many free range outfits can offer that kind of quality. Table Mountain makes it possible by limiting the number of hunters and carefully managing the resource. We hunt vast private ranches with no other hunting pressure, which allows us to hunt otherwise unpressured, free-range elk. This makes for some exciting encounters and up-close opportunities.

How to Hunt Elk In Wyoming in 2024?

First Thing’s First: YOU need to book with us so we can apply for you! The elk application deadline is January 31st. There are no “over the counter” opportunities for nonresidents to hunt elk in Wyoming and in most cases points will be required. However, we will take care of figuring all of that out for you and make the application process easy for you.

All you need to do is book with us!  We will then collect all the necessary information and license fees from you. We take care of the rest. No need to be intimidated or confused by the Wyoming application process. We will do our best to give you the best opportunity at drawing. Our elk hunts are in high demand so unfortunately, if you don’t book with us first, we will more than likely not have availability to take you hunting. So book with us today and leave the application headache to us. Call us now at 307-632-6352 or SEND US A MESSAGE.

Again, the Wyoming elk application window only runs from January 4th to January 31st! It might seem like the 2023 hunting season just ended. But believe it or not, now time to start planning your hunts for 2024 and beyond. CONTACT US FOR DETAILS RIGHT AWAY or call us at

How Should I Prepare for an Elk Hunt?

1. Get Your Hiking Legs Ready

We can accommodate hunters of all different abilities, but showing up ready to hike really makes a difference. The ability to cover ground and make a move to gain strategic positions and a shooting advantage increases the odds of not only harvesting a bull but harvesting the bull you want. Spend the off-season hiking, jogging and training for the hunt. The hard work will pay off in the field.

2. Prepare Your Gear

Showing up in brand new gear is a common mistake. During the off season this winter, break in your boots while training and give everything a test run to ensure it fits comfortably. Spend time hiking in your hunting pants and clothing to make sure nothing chaffes and that it’s all comfortable. Also, bring along lightweight rain gear just in case. Rain is not always common but staying dry can be the difference between having fun and being miserable.

3. Shoot Like Crazy

Confidence, Confidence, Confidence. It doesn’t matter if you’re hunting with a bow or rifle, shooting makes all the difference. Hit the range every week and even daily leading into the hunt. Use the same ammo and arrows for consistency as well. Walking into a hunt with confidence in your firearm and abilities is critical. Know your range and comfort levels, practice at different angles and from various shooting positions and focus on shot placement for a clean kill. We strongly discourage archery hunters from using single pin sights. See our previous blog post on that subject.
