The adventure begins the morning of your departure for our main wilderness camp. You will meet at the ABO Headquarters in Big Timber and caravan with the ABO staff to the trailhead, Box Canyon. Your road trip to Box Canyon will take you through some of the most magnificent country in North America. (If some of this country looks familiar, perhaps it is that you have seen it on the big screen in A River Runs Through It, and The Horse Whisperer.)
Upon arrival at Box Canyon, your guides and wranglers will pack your gear and introduce you to your horse. During the next five and a half hours, the caravan will climb a 10,000 ft. pass and descend 2,800 ft. into a picturesque valley, the home of our base camp, Hellroaring (7,200 ft.).
At camp you may relax and refresh yourself in your wall tent whose comfort and coziness belies the fact that you are many miles from any permanent human habitation. That evening you will enjoy a wonderfully prepared meal with beverages of your choice, a roaring campfire to gather ’round and time to socialize and share the anticipation of the adventures to come.
A good night’s sleep followed by an early rising and a big breakfast prepared by our great cook will set you on the path for your true mission: hunting, fishing, or just enjoying what is justifiably called, “God’s Country”.
Regardless of your chosen activity, our guides will escort you every step of the way. We are confident that you will find the guides knowledgeable, skilled, and accommodating. Whether you seek the majestic elk or the wily cutthroat trout, the end of the day will afford you the satisfaction of time well spent in pursuit of your sporting dreams.
