The Wind River region around Dubois is habitat for many big game and trophy animals: bighorn sheep, black bear, deer, elk, moose, mountain lion, and pronghorn, not to mention many game birds. Here’s how one hunter described the experience:

When we set out for the 15 mile ride to hunting camp,… it was gorgeous, sunny and 75 degrees, not exactly textbook elk hunting weather. But it was hard to complain, as the scenery was breathtaking and the ride fairly pleasant on… the dude horse. Camp was well-established, with spacious heated wall tents and a nice warm cook tent and fire circle for evening chats and libations. (Source:

Dubois is amply ready to welcome hunters to town after the busy summer season, with numerous motels and lodges, rental cabins, and experienced outfitters.
