Harris Hunts provides exceptional opportunities for both rifle and archery elk hunting across various trophy units, and general tag areas, spanning central to eastern Montana.
The home ranch lies in the special draw units 700 and 410. This is a trophy unit, where bulls can be expected to score in the 340-380 range, with larger bulls likely. We typically use tree stands, elevated or ground blinds for these hunts, but depending on the situation, a spot and stalk option could possibly be utilized.
