Cargill Outfitters - Whitehall

Fishing: We offer float trips in the rivers, Jefferson, Madison or Big Hole, all located near here. You can catch browns, rainbows and whitefish. Mountain lakes are an option as well, located in scenic alpine areas where you can catch brook trout and cutthroat. A package can be fishing several different locations while staying at the Lodge; we offer excellent family opportunities.

Big Game Hunts: Elk and mule deer are our primary fall hunts. We hunt both archery and rifle seasons. Past success has been excellent on both species, ranging from 80 to 100 percent. We have hunts on both private property and Forest permits; location is the key to success. Bull elk 5x5 points or better are the target, and all deer must be 4x4 or better to be harvested. Most hunts are conducted on 25,000 acres of private land with an excellent resident herd. We use 4x4's and occasionally 4 wheelers. We custom fit a hunt that is just right for you. Moose, sheep, antelope, and mountain goats are on a permit drawing basis and if you draw a tag in any of our areas, we can assist you in your successful trip. Spring black bears cure the cabin fever from the long winter and when the bears come out, we are ready for them. These hunts take place from mid April to June, all hunts are fair chase spot and stalk, no bait or dogs are allowed in Montana. This very enjoyable time of year, viewing all the addition wildlife, the mountains are still capped with snow and the meadows are a beautiful green. We also offer mountain lion hunts from December through February.

Trail Rides: We offer trail rides for riders with all levels of experience, we have excellent stock and all tours are guided. Viewing of the Tobacco Root and Highland Mountains as well as the local ranges is an added bonus. Minimum of 2 hour rides, we can do lunch or dinner rides as well as Continental Divide rides.
