To all the Outdoorsman and women,

Thank you for your past interest in hunting and fishing with Otter Creek Outfitters in South East Montana. We would like to share this newsletter with you in regards to 2009 hunting and fishing opportunities. We have offered quality hunts from the same hunting camp for over 25 years and have a lot of references. We also have had the privilege of sharing our camp with many outdoor shows and magazines, which shows the quality of our operation.  We offer hunting trips for mule deer, antelope, elk, spring turkey, and the best fly fishing in Montana, on the Big Horn River. We offer prairie dog shooting in June and July on large prairie dog towns. We operate out of comfortable lodge in Otter, hunting private land as well as the Custer National Forest.  Hunters can fly into Billings and rent a car, or Sheridan Wy. We can include airport shuttle to Sheridan in any of our hunting packages and we offer full service hunts.

If you are looking for a great hunt for 2009 or 2010 we have some great opportunities. Here are a few things to keep in mind while considering hunting with Otter Creek Outfitters. We now offer spring Merriam turkey hunts. We have the true Merriam's turkey with the white fan. The true species is getting hard to find. We offer archery elk hunts and have taken many good bulls. It is a lottery draw for rifle elk tags. We offer great mule deer and have a large population of deer and great quality as you can see on our photo gallery. We have excellent bow hunting for deer and antelope. Archery deer is spot and stalk. Archery antelope is sitting on water holes, decoying and spot and stalk. There is a two week window for a rifle combo hunt for deer and antelope, and then the deer rut kicks in for an unbelievable late season rifle hunt.  Coyote calling or coyote hunting along with other predators is also available.

Our fishing is done on the famous Big Horn River. We have just finished the new lodge in Ft. Smith, a beautiful log cabin lodge. The scenery is breath taking and the fishing is in creditable. We offer trip from the middle of Dec. to the middle of August. We fish from drift boats and stop along the way and wade from shore. The river supports around 5000 fish per mile of the best rainbow and brown trout waters one can find. We offer fishing trip for the novice to the most accomplished fly fisherman. We have fisherman come here from all over the world to fish with us on the Big Horn River.

In summary we offer a large variety of hunting and fishing in Montana. Most of the hunts are conducted from one camp and we use 4x4 to get around. Fishing is done from the new lodge in Ft. Smith. We offer hunts from very physical to not physical at all. There is no better time to plan a hunt or fishing trip than right now. Game and fish populations are great, largely due to the people us, who love to hunt and fish in the great outdoors.

If you are interested in planning a hunting or fishing trip, please send us an email or give us a call. We can discuss it with you, and give you some references to talk to that have been with us in the past. You can book a hunt or fishing trip with us with a reasonable deposit, and we will help you with licensing, deadlines, and details as they come up. Please take a look at our website which will give you a good idea of what we offer. We also have over 200 photos of game taken on the website where you can see a great sample of the quality of game we have.

Best regards,

Jim Wilkins
