Savings are in season: Get our deal and hunt Jackson Hole!

You like hunting, right? Of course you do. Hunting has been one of mankind’s favorite pastimes ever since the first cave people stepped out of his cave and realized that a woolly mammoth wasn’t just gonna walk itself into his primitive barbecue grill. We at Flat Creek Inn are aware of that fact, so we’re offering a special deal to help you see nature, enjoy nature, and maybe kill some nature too.

For only $350, get a room at Flat Creek Inn for 7 nights. You’ll get 10% off anything in our convenience store (except fuel). This special is valid from October 1 through the fall hunting season. To book or for more info, call 307-733-5276.

We look forward to seeing you. Here’s what you’ll need to know to go hunting ‘round the Jackson Hole area.

  • Hunting license. You can get this at Flat Creek Inn, conveniently. You must have a valid hunting license at all times while in the field for the animal you’re hunting.
  • Conservation stamp. There are a number of exemptions; see here.
  • Proof of completion of a hunter safety course.
  • Fluorescent orange. It has yet to catch on in Paris or Milan, but bright orange has always been a fashion staple for hunters.

You’ll find the following animals to hunt here in Wyoming. For more information on what it takes to go after each of these animals, check out the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s helpful website.

  • Antelope. They’re sort of like the Wal-Mart version of deer, but these unique animals exist in larger quantities in Wyoming than in the rest of the world combined.
  • Bighorn sheep. The Game and Fish website promises that “a bountiful hunting season should be on tap” for these animals.
  • Bison. If you’re one of the lucky ones who draw one of the 50 cow tags or 70 bull tags, you can do your part to manage the size of the herd.
  • Deer. Deer numbers are down, unfortunately, due to weather-related issues.
  • Elk. This is a “historically good elk hunting era.”
  • Game birds. It’s a little early to predict too much, but favorable conditions have created a good nesting environment, which is good for prospects.
  • Moose. Moose numbers are down from what they’ve been historically, but at least there are more licenses (315) than, say, bison.
  • Mountain goat. These are different than bighorn sheep. Did you know that? We at Flat Creek Inn didn’t. Anyway, there are very few tags available, but past rates of success for those who get the privilege of hunting them are very high.
  • Wolf. This is where the hunter becomes the hunted, literally. This season will be Wyoming’s first wolf hunting season since 2013.

Where are you going to hunt? Let us know! And remember to make Flat Creek Inn your base camp for your next expedition.
