Challenge Outfitters (license #373) operates hunts indepently from Bull Basin Outfitters and is based out of a tent/yurt camp located on the border of the Piney Valley Ranch in game management unit 36. While the camp is actually on private property, the hunts are conducted on both private and adjacent public lands located in the White River National Forest. Clients access the camp by four wheel drive roads through the ranch. The camp is a combination of yurts and tents that provide for cooking and sleeping during the hunt. The camp is furnished to provide for heat, cots, lanterns stoves and all cooking utensils, clients bring their own personal gear and food.
Several thousand acres are available to hunters on the Ranch and in the National Forest, and numbers of clients are limited in the camp at a time to between 4-6, ensuring for a high quality experience. The area is ideal elk habitat, and clients have in the past have had very good success during the rifle and archery seasons. Access through much of the area is either by foot, and guests can determine how they'd like to customize their hunt. Guides can be added to the base price of the hunt for fees listed in the panel to the left.
