The Greys River is home to monster mule deer, elk and moose. In fact, this area produces more record book mule deer than anywhere else in Wyoming and is in the top five worldwide for its trophy mulies. If you are looking for the mule deer trophy of a lifetime, you must consider the Greys River region in western Wyoming.
The Box Y Lodge is the only lodge along the Greys River. Our hunters enjoy individual heated sleeping cabins and private baths in an idyllic mountain setting. The lodge has a large commercial kitchen, spacious dining area and a living room for relaxing. This might be one of the most comfortable hunting camps you’ve ever experienced. More importantly, it’s surrounded by trophy big game country.
Horsepower is the key to hunting this rugged Greys River country, and we have plenty of it. Our horses are veterans of the trails and proven partners on these hunts. We have enough stock that you’ll never have to ride the same horse two days in a row. They get plenty of rest in the Box Y pastures.
On mule deer hunts, we must impose a client weight limit of 250 pounds due to the steep terrain. We will be hunting alpine bowls, boulder fields and timbered areas around 9,000 ft. Quality binoculars and spotting scopes are critical as most of the day is spent glassing. Shooting long distances with confidence is essential. Hunters must prepare physically and mentally for this challenging and exciting hunt.
Hunters with 4 or more preference points for mule deer have 100% draw odds for this license. However, Wyoming reserves 25% of the available licenses for those with no points. So don’t be afraid to apply for a tag!
In addition to monster mule deer, the Greys River is home to a large, resident Elk herd. This herd is growing and has continued to increase over the last couple of years. A high bull-to-cow ratio means good odds for success.
Our elk hunts are not quite as physical as the mule deer hunts, since we don’t have to pursue elk as high into the mountains. However, it’s still a good idea to be physically fit for this hunt. A typical day is spent glassing, riding and hiking to different areas looking for elk. The license draw odds for Elk are good; in fact, you can draw an elk license with no points using a special license. If you have 2 or more preference points for elk, license draw odds are 100% using the regular license. For more on the preference point system, see page 35 in our brochure.
The Greys River country is also home to a very healthy population of Shiras moose. The population has flourished over the last few years and a day without seeing a moose is rare. We may use horses or 4x4 vehicles on this hunt, depending on the time of year. Hiking through rough terrain is expected, but it’s much less physically demanding than the mule deer hunts. This area produces good Bulls each year and offers one of the best opportunities in Wyoming to hunt and harvest a Bull Moose. While licenses can be hard to draw, remember that 25% of the available license quota is reserved for hunters not at the top of the point system. Give us a call and we will be glad to discuss a Moose hunt with you.
