Keith Hartman of Adventures West Recreation presents Big Bull Ranches. This group of intensively managed Trophy game ranches has produced some of the largest SCI bull elk taken over the last decade. Each ranch is individually managed based on game populations and available habitat on thousands of acres of private land. These ranches are located in the lower 48 states, and several locations throughout Canada.

These well-managed ranches will produce some high scoring bulls. In short, when you harvest a trophy bull from one of our Big Bull Ranch locations, we are confident it will make you eligible for the Safari Club International record book. So here's a chance to make that dream of a lifetime come true.

Your Hunt

Hunting methods will range from spot and stalk, drives, stands and the ever exciting bugling. These hunts are not very physically demanding, but we would like to see our hunters in reasonable shape so you can remain in the field longer. We can tailor a hunt to your individual needs. Hunts take place when the animal's antlers become hard horned.

We hunt from September 1 through December, weather and road conditions permitting. Hunters have the option of their weapon of choice. Hunters can expect to see 20-50 bulls during their hunt and will have numerous opportunities at taking trophy bulls.


Hunter Guarantee

We are so confident in the quality of our ranches that we guarantee all our trophy elk hunts. If for some reason you are not completely satisfied with the quality of your hunt or the quality of the game seen, we will return to you 100% of all moneys you have paid to us prior to the discharge of your weapon.

Big Bull client Larry Patrick, Saskatchewan

We have maintained a 100% success rate for years and our policy is, "No game, no pay."
