Terrain & Hunting Methods
All of the
property hunted in both South Dakota and Wyoming are private working ranches
that Western Gateway Outfitters has the exclusive
hunting rights to. By strictly limiting the number of hunters
on each property and allowing animals to mature, the hunting
second to none. The terrain we hunt antelope in varies from
flat to moderately rough. The mule deer country is moderately
rough to extremely rough with open country as well as areas
of brushy finger draws and heavily timbered ponderosa pine hillsides.
The areas we hunt for merriams turkeys, whitetails and elk have a
lot of ponderosa pine and oak draws, deep canyons and hills that
roll out into more open farm and ranch country.
method of hunting we do is spot and stalk, with the exception
whitetail and antelope hunts, which are done from ground blinds and tree stands.
Four-wheel drive trucks are used to access and get around the
ranches. All hunting is
done on foot. The better your physical
condition the better your odds for a real trophy,
but with the
amount of land that we hunt along with the varied terrains,
we can cater
to most hunters.
