Of all the world's great species of big game, nothing quite matches the American Elk. It is a grand and majestic creature, whose magnificent presence and autumn bugles are a constant reality at Quinlan Ranch. Six to seven thousand wild Elk migrate through the Quinlan Ranch each year. This makes for great hunting every week of the hunt season. Hunters are continually astonished at the number of Elk on the Quinlan Ranch.
Each hunt is five days long. There are six rifle Elk hunts, three archery hunts, and two rifle Elk/Mule Deer hunts currently scheduled between September and late November. Contact us to schedule a hunt or inquire about additional hunt dates.
