Best of the West is one of the most diversified outfitters in the industry, holding permits in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Bureau of Land Management, State and Private lands. This gives unmatched ability to hunt various species, follow a migration due to early snow fall and limit pressure on our hunting areas.

Our staff works hard at providing you with premier hunting and fly-fishing opportunities in Wyoming’s finest big game and fishery habitats.  We provide you with a premier opportunity for your general hunting needs while you build points, but also cater to your limited quota trophy area needs, after you have accrued the necessary preference points.

Not only considered to be the Best of the West, but also owner Bruce Lindsey is a lifelong hunter, woodsman, fisherman, outfitter, rancher and stockman, spending more than three quarters of the year in the outdoors and back-country.  When he is not scouting, guiding or hunting big game, he is hunting predators and caring for livestock on his family ranch through the off season.

Bruce is one of the most professional and personal individuals that you could ever meet. He and his staff are extremely committed to making your trip, not only successful, but the most memorable experience in life.

 

Best of the West owns and/or operates four camps.  Three of which are in and around the Greys River Ranger District in the renowned trophy deer region G and H, general elk areas 90 & 94, moose area 24 and bighorn sheep area 24.  These camps are located just west of Big Piney, Wyoming.

Our wilderness camp is within the Black Rock Ranger District in deer region E, general elk area 70 and bighorn sheep area 4 located just west of Dubois, Wyoming.

All four camps are located within the boundaries of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the lower drive-in camp is set on South Piney Creek, the upper pack-in camp is located at the head of the East Fork of the Greys River, the Lake Alice summer pack-in camp and the wilderness pack-in camp sets alongside Cub Creek.

These camps offer hunting opportunities for trophy mule deer, elk, antelope, bear, moose and sheep.  Also offering summer activities such as progressive pack trips, fly-fishing, wildlife viewing, hiking, trail-riding or our long-range shooting school.

Lake Alice is one of the most majestic, largest naturally formed mountain lakes in Wyoming.  This is a pack-in summer camp set in the Wyoming Range.  Providing unreal fly-fishing opportunities for the rare Bonneville Cutthroat trout and a ready environment for trail-riding, hiking, or relaxing at camp, as well as a realistic setting for our long-range hunting shooting school.

All trips are professionally guided and staffed, complete with classic Dutch oven meals, comfortable wall tent camps, well-maintained equipment, gentle livestock and unbelievable views.

We outfit, guide and entertain a limited number of clients each year, this insures that you will have a primer experience.  Also available are summer fly-fishing trips to pursue the Wyoming Cutt-Slam, pack-trips, trail-riding trips a horseback into the Forest and Wilderness areas of Wyoming for wildlife viewing.

Best of the West believes that a top-quality staff is paramount to the outfitters ability in providing clients with the most successful adventure possible. Therefore, we search out to hire the best guides, cooks, camp jacks and wranglers available. These positions require more than just expertise, but a real passion and love for this way of life.

Being a professional guide requires intimate knowledge of our hunt areas, the species sought after and their behaviors.  Our guides possess not only the passion, but maybe more importantly the perseverance to hunt every day, all day and all season long to locate you the best trophy’s possible.

Preseason scouting for big game begins in early June and will continue until our hunts end in mid-January.  We spend a great deal of time locating game animals, learning their daily patterns, understanding their migration routes and developing an understanding of how they behave in the various seasons and weather patterns throughout the year.  This preseason activity is crucial in giving our guides the knowledge they need to provide you with a shot opportunity and ultimately success in harvesting your game species.

Playing a huge role in our high success is our guide’s ability to proficiently hunt the game we seek, but also having superior knowledge in how to set up the shot on your trophy for ultimate success.  Our guides have an uncanny ability to set up each shot for the best opportunity.

We are also continually searching out and working with some of the industry’s most proficient gun smiths to build the best long-range hunting rifles available and long-range marksmen’s in the country to teach in our long-range hunting shooting schools to better, not only your abilities, but our own as well.

Best of the West Outfitters attention to detail, diverse permit holdings, outstanding staff, good equipment, gentle livestock, passion for hunting, and the greatest dedication to your personal success, makes us the obvious choice in an outfitting company.

These reasons are why we openly encourage you to research other outfitters, contact our references and above all take the time to visit with us to gain the confidence you need to book your adventure of a lifetime.
