Rocky Mountain Elk

The Malay Gap Elk herd is managed for hunting opportunity with a higher availibility of tag allotments. Spanning roughly 134,000 acres and tucked away in the north-eastern corner of the Reservation, this Elk unit is truly a hidden gem. Two archery-only hunts are scheduled during the rut for both Tribal and Non-Tribal members with bull Elk averaging 340-380 inches on the Boone & Crockett scale. Winter weather in the high country annually drives elk onto the Reservation providing Rifle hunters with a chance to harvest bulls scoring well into the 300" class.

Cow Elk hunts are conducted in the fall and are available for the Drylake and Ninemile Elk units. 

These Non-Trophy Elk Hunts are available through a lottery process with an entry/application fee of $26.00 (1 entry per person per hunt). Lottery dates for the 2018-2019 hunts are December 4, 2017 to February 24, 2018 with a drawing date of February 26, 2018. Any leftover tags will be sold on a first come first serve basis. Contact the Department for more information.
