About the Elk
Elk are mostly found in the forest, forest edge, and alpine meadows in North America and Northeast Asia. Deer are smaller than elk which makes them more difficult to hunt than deer. A mature male elk weighs around seven hundred pounds, while deer weigh three hundred pounds. Because of the difference in size, elk have more muscle mass than deer. For this reason, elk can cover much more ground at a much faster pace than any deer.
You will need to be in shape to hunt elk. You will be covering a long distance when embarking on your elk hunt because of their fast pace and the ground they cover. You will have to hike uphill and trod downhill with your heavy backpack, but our team is there to assist you with your trek.
Elk antlers are significantly larger than those of deer and point upward at a steeper angle. Elk can stand five feet tall at the shoulder. They have a shaggy coat, while deer have a short coat.
The elk’s unique sound is called a bugle and it is loud enough to carry for miles making elk easy to find for the hunt.
Hunters can choose to bow hunt, rifle hunt, pistol hunt, or black powder hunt elk. We also offer long range shooting instruction. We accommodate all types of hunters and even hunters with physical disabilities. We have high quality deer at Squaw Mountain Ranch.
When is the Best Time to Hunt Elk?

You have the best possible elk hunting experience waiting for you at Squaw Mountain Ranch in Texas, but let’s back up for a minute: what defines the best possible elk hunting trip of your life?

Whether it comes to safety, as well as information about proper hunting techniques, and your prey, we have the specialists that don’t just work a job—they’ve been hunting for their entire lives, and they’re dedicated to providing you with the best possible hunting service ever. You’ve been hunting before, but you haven’t had this kind of service to back you, or a ranch like ours. It’s not juts about hunting, but about the downtime between the hunts.
You want your own space to shake off the dust, and relax at the end of day one. Relax in the comfort of your own private cabin where you can think about the day, rest and recoup, and get right back out into the hunt. These come with everything you’ll need, including access to meals and a stocked bar in the central ranch. What better way to unwind in the evening than not having to cook, and leaning back to a cold brew? Exactly—nothing is better.
It just makes sense—you’re out in the woods all day, you’ve been hiking and carrying your gear, and your body is tired. The ranch is also to relax and rejuvenate after the hunt. Take advantage of the pool and hot tub to relax, and prep yourself for the next day. When you finally find your way out of the comfort of the hot tub, head on over to the firepit where you can enjoy a few beers and trade stories. It’s everything you were hoping for, and nobody can offer it like Squaw Mountain Ranch.
