Archery Hunts $3000
Most archery hunting takes place in tree stands along our farm field edges rimmed by creek and river bottoms. Included in our private hunting grounds are archery zones where no rifles are allowed in any season. During Montana’s specified archery season (September through the beginning of October), archers can take a trophy whitetail because the bucks are relaxed and have distinct feeding patterns near the barley and alfalfa fields, however we invite our archers to book hunts during our general season as well. The rut begins the last 3 weeks of November providing another great opportunity to take a trophy Montana whitetail or mule deer with a bow.
Rifle Hunts $3500
Rifle hunting begins in our general season (middle of October through November) and whitetail and mule deer begin to rut the last 3 weeks of November. Our style of rifle hunting mostly entails spot and stalk or sitting on bluffs overlooking the creek and river bottoms and farm fields.
To ensure better trophies for our current and future guests, we require all deer harvested during archery and rifle season to be a mature deer at least 4.5 years of age. During general hunting season, our guides are available to aid you in deciding on which deer to harvest. A $500 fee will be assessed to the hunter for shooting an immature deer. This will hopefully enable us to meet our goal for all hunters to harvest a quality trophy whitetail deer!
Note: an additional fee of $750 will be added to your total if you desire to hunt an antelope as well.
Processing Your Kill
Augusta has two meat processors and one professional taxidermist for your convenience. It is the hunter’s responsibility to have the meat processed. If you do not take the meat home with you, we will give it away to a family in need or to the Augusta food pantry after you have paid for the meat to be processed.
A $1500 deposit is required for each hunter to secure your hunting dates with us. We accept cash, check, Visa, or Venmo. Please make checks out to MARK YOUNG OUTFITTERS LLC, with the remaining balance due upon arrival. After we receive your deposit, you will need to get your license.
There are two types of deer licenses available to you in our area. A non-resident Big Game Elk/Deer Combination general license is $1,046 and includes elk, deer, fish and waterfowl. Please make sure it says Big Game because an Elk Only Combination tag does not include a deer. There is also a Deer Only Combination general license which costs $612 and includes deer and waterfowl. The Big Game license is more expensive but gives you a higher chance of drawing a deer tag. You must purchase the PREFERENCE (bonus) POINT. The cost is $52 and increases your odds of getting a license. The more bonus points you build up, the higher your chance is of drawing a tag. You can purchase one bonus point per year. This year (2020) the license is due by APRIL 1st!
For more information on the licenses and bonus points go to http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/licenses/all/nonresidentCombo.html or call Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks at (406) 444-2950.
Hunts include lodging at the newly remodeled 130 year old Oscar Kenck house or one of our restored cabins. Book early to make certain you have all the paperwork completed because all license applications must be done online with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks before APRIL 1st!
