Spur Outfitters

Wyoming

 

At Spur Outfitters, customer service is our number one goal. We strive to show our clients an exciting and complete hunting trip, not based solely on the kill but on the total outdoor experience.

 

Surrounded by the Sierra Madre and Snowy Range mountains, the Silver Spur Ranches of Wyoming consist of 55,000 deeded acres in south-central Wyoming. As one of the largest cattle producing ranches in the country, the ranch is also home to a large population of both fish and wildlife. Elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, antelope, black bear and mountain lions reside on these properties, along with great populations of wild rainbow, brown and brook trout.

 

Due to the expanse of the ranch and conservation efforts, you can be assured to have no competition from other hunters and experience a hunt of a lifetime.

 

With proper management of these species, recreational opportunities are endless here for the avid hunter and fisherman.

 

We offer a fully outfitted experience with quality guides.

 

Spur Outfitters makes the following commitment to our clients:

  • Provide experienced, knowledgeable, properly equipped guides.

Shooting Sports

 

In 2006 the Silver Spur Ranch constructed a 10 station sporting clays course for its guests. Over time the course has become popular with the local shotgun shooters of the valley. Annually, the 4-H Foundation of Wyoming holds the "Platte River Shootout" at our facility; a fundraising event for the 4-H Foundation's shooting sports program, consisting of a 2 day shooting event involving 120-150 shooters. BBQ's, calcuttas, and a lot of clay shooting takes place during this event. We encourage any of our guests with interest in this event to get involved and support our local 4-H shooting sports program.

 

10 Station Course / 100 Round $40/round

Varmint Shooting

 

The agricultural lands of the Wyoming Silver Spur Ranch properties provide our shooting clients a tremendous opportunity for some of the best target shooting in the country. With a very large population of both Wyoming ground squirrels and white tailed prairie dogs, Spur Outfitters offers its guests the opportunity to hunt our properties during the summer months. We allow this activity as a management tool for the properties, as these rodents are very destructive to the ranchlands and the crops grown on the properties. Coyotes are also hunted; another management tool for the enhancement of our big game populations.

 

Prairie dog shoots are conducted May through August.

 

Coyote hunting is open year round; best hunting is during the winter months. No license is required.

 

Prairie Dog Shoots

$150 Per Day / Per Person(no lodging or meals)

$300 Per Day / Per Person Lodging at Hanging Bull Lodge and meals

(Guides for coyote hunting - $200 / day additional charge)


*Gratuities are not included in pricing!
