MUSSELSHELL OUTFITTERS, LLC IS A PATRON CORPORATE LIFE SPONSOR OF THE NWTF.
This hunt is one of the best kept secrets in Montana! We have a great population of true Merriam's turkey in our area and you can take 1 or 2 birds in the spring. The birds here are not hybrids and most have a very white tipped fan and wing feathers. Over the past 19 years outfitting this area we have helped hundreds of clients take the beautiful Merriam's turkey and many have completed grand slams or world slams with us.
We have prime areas to hunt and have many gobblers located at any given time. On this hunt a client is free to call his or her own bird if they wish or we are always happy to call for you. Either way, we will get you from the camp to the best areas to hunt each day and will stay in the field all day to help you in any way we can. We can hunt turkeys all day in Montana which gives us 15 hours hunting time per day if needed. If hunters do not take a bird early in the mornings, then late afternoon and evenings can be a turkey hunters dream in this area. This is a very high success hunt in very unique turkey country. Many clients tell us that the Merriam's here are the most beautiful birds they have ever seen. On this hunt you will most likely see a large quantity of other game such as deer, elk, antelope,pheasant, and possibly bobcat as an added bonus. We offer this hunt as a 1 bird, 2 day hunt, or as a 2 bird, 3 day hunt.
On this hunt you would arrive on day 1, get settled into camp and have an evening meal. You would then have 2 or 3 full days to hunt depending on the hunt that you book (2 day or 3 day hunt) and you would depart the following morning after a continental breakfast. On the 1 bird, 2 day hunt you would get 3 nights lodging and 2 full days hunting. On the 2 bird , 3 day hunt, you would get 4 nights lodging and 3 full days hunting.
