Switchback Outfitters is based near the Yellowstone Park area of Wyoming and Montana. Our business is located in one of the premiere big game hunting areas in the state of Wyoming.

Trophy animals of all species can be found in the Shoshone National Forest wilderness. Switchback Outfitters is surrounded in all directions by the beautiful Absaroka and Beartooth mountain peaks in Elk Area 51, Wyoming. We are licensed to hunt all of Areas 50-54 in the Sunlight Basin area. 

Late season elk hunts and almost all goat hunts are based out of the Wyoming headquarters of Switchback Ranch, which occupies a very remote and scenic plateau at the north end of the Sunlight Basin in Area 50.





Bow Hunting Magazine rated this area as the top bow hunting area in the State of Wyoming for 2003.
