Late August seen Mr. Lynn Stinson return for his 3rd trip at Silvertine, this time he set his sites on harvesting a 500" Manitoban and a 500" Roosevelt. We he gotit done, and it was one of the longest 24hr days we ever had. The Mantioban was shot at daybreak, right out of the gate first day, and as majority of retrievals go very easy, just hard heavy work as the Manitobans are very large bodied. the Roosevelt on the other hand was right at dark, and too boot, like 1300lb Coastal Roosevelt, in a swampy area that took majority of the night to retrieve it. All in all it was a very long day, thanks Jason and Corey for your back-breaking hard work! The Manitoban scored out at 537" and the Roosevelt at 543". Congrats Lynn and see ya in November for that big whitetail!
2018 Guest Mr. Jerrett and his 17yr old son Gavyn were hunting for a specific 440" Rocky Mtn Elk on his gold package for 3 days here on the expansive Silvertine Ranch. On the first day Mr. Jerrett passed up a good shot opportunity on the big Rocky Mtn. the first evening, as his son had just killed his bull, and this decision in most cases can bite you in the butt, but in his situation it proved to be a good one for him. The last evening of the last day things were not looking good for Mr. Jerrett and him going home with that 440 Rocky Mtn. Elk he wanted as they never had another sighting of the bull. But, as things happen here on this ranch, about an hour before dark, at the edge of the lake a 60" wide massive Roosevelt Elk Bull stepped out of the thick spruce forest. A quick discussion with his guide Jason Shaw about upgrading, and the bull was shot at 140 yards and rolled down the hill from one clean killing shot. The bull scored 515" and has an amazing 60" outside spread! Congrats Mr. Jerrett. For more photos of this bull from different angles visit my website and the "500 CLUB" tab.
Our 2018 season has started with this 17 year old gentlemen, Regan shooting a gorgeous 390" Rocky Mtn. Elk, a special thanks to his Grandfather Bill bringing him up here for his first elk hunt from Texas. Bill and Regan hunted hard for 2 days before we spotted this bull bedded down in the brush on Rock Hill. After a failed attempt to get a shot at the bull in the brush, he moved off, and we jockeyed around threw the trees trying to get another opportunity. Suddenly there he was, the shooting sticks went up and Regan got up there and got business done! The bull ran about 40 yards and died right on the summit of the hill, giving us one of the best photo opportunities I have seen in years, a spectacular view of Yogi lake and area. Congrats Regan!
Don't find yourself standing there this fall again staring at the bottom of your empty deep-freezer?

I am here to offer all of you that got skunked during the regular hunting season an great opportunity!

Silvertine Wildlife Co. has grown to a point where I am now offering winter MEAT HUNTS at the EXACT same price as if I were to load my surplus animals onto a truck and ship them to the abattoir. Hunters can come and experience a REAL fully guided hunt for Yearling Elk, Tibetan Yak, or Bison. They can harvest as much meat as their budget allows, they determine the hunt price, not me! Meats Hunts are $5.99 per pound (hanging carcass weight) of your choice of game animal. I charge a realistic DAILY FEE to cover the services provided, as all your meals, accommodations, field prep, skinning, and guide services are included!

Snow flakes flutter and chase each other in the air, +2 Celsius, the chickadees are dancing and chirping in the trees, squirrels nattering in the distance, a light south wind blows threw the tree tops sounding like a river rustling in the distance, we slowly sneak, one step, another step, wait, watch, listen. This goes on dawn until 4pm, no elk, only tracks.
Then Mark mutters under his breath, "Elk", and an outstretched arm points, we stop and watch as the old lead cow travels past us threw the timber 50 years away, then another, and another...OMG, there must have been 50 of them! the cows and calves chirping and mewing like an orchestra. But then the 51st one is a regal old bull, with dark chocolate antlers with polished "Silverttine's" falling back over his rump. Mark looks at me wide eyed . . . . I wink, and nod with approval.
It's days like this that remained ingrained in my memory forever, this is my thing, my life, this is why I hunt, and I LOVE it!
The last week has seen temps dip into the -30's here at the ranch. So today I found myself dreaming of a time when the cool mornings would turn into nice sunny Autumn days carrying the smells of the seasonal change and the bugle of the bull elk in the air. On one of those days repeat hunter Mr. Palmer and his son shot a magnificent 455" Bull elk! I am sick of winter already and looking forward to spring...man that's a long way away.
