Said Creek Outfitters

Wyoming Hunting Trips & Horseback Hunts in Dubois and Jackson

Said Creek Outfitters and Outfitting Adventures is a small, family run business, owned and operated by Outfitter Joe W. Hargrave, a serious hunter with almost twenty years of Wyoming hunting and guiding experience in Western Wyoming. In 2015, Joe started his own outfit, Jackson Wyoming Hunts, helping clients harvest a number of respectable bulls with high success.

In 2019, the outfit expanded to include a broader Wyoming hunting area in addition to those held on public and private lands in and around Jackson Hole. This expansion meant rebranding and re naming the business.  We deliberated for days before landing on Said Creek, which carries with it a bit of Joe’s classic sense of humor.

Joe has never been one to give away his best Wyoming hunting spots, and time and again, when friends and family would ask “Where do we go to harvest a big one?” Joe would respond, “Said Creek.”

Perspective clients may spend hours pouring over a map, looking for Said Creek. The closest you will come is referenced in the Game and Fish Rules and Regulations, Elk Area 67, 68, and 69, which encompasses some of the best Wyoming hunting ground, our new territory. Look it up!

We recognize that the majority of clients who draw a sheep tag have waited years, if not a lifetime to obtain this license. In order to secure the best chances of success for our sheep hunters, we offer a scout and hunt package. In total, its a fourteen day commitment, one that can either be scheduled in one long stint, or two separate trips. The scouting portion of the package is a 5 day/4 night summer pack trip into the high mountain region with your guide.

The hunt itself is 9 days/8 nights in a spike camp. The total cost for this package is $16,000.

We do not mix hunting groups when it comes to a sheep hunt. A once in a lifetime tag deserves the full effort/commitment of your guide. Some clients have asked if a family member or friend can come along for the experience. The answer is.. maybe. The terrain is tough, rugged, high. Its a challenge and an incredible accomplishment. Clients who have the best experience on a sheep hunt know what they are getting into and put in the work throughout the year to prepare. They practice their riflery skills, hit the gym, walk miles, and generally prepare themselves for success. Anyone tagging along should be expected to put in the same effort for the best experience and the highest chance of success. If a client is sure they have a good candidate to play side kick/photographer/videographer, we can discuss pricing for a non hunting participant.

  • Upon Arrival

    Upon arrival, licenses will be checked in and signed. All paperwork will be completed at this point. Gear and equipment will also be checked over at this time. Hunter/guide safety topics will be discussed, as well as bear awareness/safety, horse safety, and hunting rules/regulations. Clients will be given an opportunity to site in firearms and bows. If riding, hunters will be introduced to their mounts and fitted with saddles.

  • 5:30 am

    Wakeup and sit down to a hearty breakfast and discuss the day’s hunt with your guide.

  • 6:00 am

    Pack lunches. Prepare gear and mounts to leave base camp at first light. Be prepared to spend the entire day in the field, as weather and animal movements will dictate the schedule. The hunt will begin and end with legal shooting light.

    *Note: hunters may ride directly from the lodge or base camp to hunt, or they may take truck/trailer to the best hunt area that fits the day’s conditions.

  • 6:30 pm

    Upon return to base camp in the evening, another hearty homemade meal awaits. Exact dinner time depends on the day’s progress.

** When an animal is harvested, it will be recovered immediately and transported back to base camp. The animal will be caped out and tagged, the client will then decide if he or she would like the animal transported for processing. The client is responsible for communicating with the local butcher and paying all costs associated with processing, shipping, etc.
