Welcome to Bald Mountain Outfitters

The Pollard family has been in the hunting, guiding, fishing and wilderness pack trip business in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming since 1952! My grandfather, Archie, built the first lodge on Half Moon Lake in 1952. I have had my Wyoming Outfitters License (BG71) since 1976 and worked as a guide/packer for my Grandfather for 10 years prior to that point in time. I received my BS degree in Wildlife from Utah and Weber State Universities in 1972 and have put that knowledge to work in our Outfitting Business. Our business is truly a Family Operation and I am proud to note the following Awards from the Wyoming Outfitters & Guides Association:

  • My daughter, Nycole, won the Guide of the Year Award for Wyoming in 2006
  • My son, Travis, won the Guide of the Year Award for Wyoming in 2001!

Bald Mountain Outfitters has the expertise and knowledge to provide you with a well-organized, safe and exciting excursion. We provide our guests with the experienced staff who know our area, gentle and dependable horses and mules, comfortable, clean camps and quality gear. We work hard to make certain that your activity with us is a truly enjoyable experience.

Summer Activities

The Bridger Wilderness Area continues to offer some of the finest trout fishing, unexcelled scenic values, wildlife sighting and access to Wyoming's highest Peaks. We offer a full range of summer activities including:

Our County, Sublette, is the home of the World and State Record Golden Trout and the State Record Rainbow, Cutthroat, Grayling, and Brook Trout (we also pursue Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Splake and other Hybrids). Our Fishing and Pack Trip opportunities are truly unsurpassed for the novice or expert and for the fly or spin fisherman. Our ideal location, near Elkhart Park, affords us the best access to the highest peaks in Wyoming. We tailor our Gear Spot Packs to the back-packer and mountain climber and hope that you will consider our services to support your Wilderness excursion.

Our dates are booking fast for the summer 2015 season and I hope that you can contact us soon.

Check Out the Latest Hunts

We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer you Quality Hunting Excursions in both the Pinedale Area and in the Black Hills of Wyoming, near Hulett. We own two Hunting Base Camps and lease another:

While Elk is the major species that we hunt in the Pinedale Area, we can also provide quality hunts for Shiras Moose, Pronghorn, Mule Deer, and Black Bear. The Black Hills of Wyoming offer great hunting for Whitetail Deer, Mule Deer, and Pronghorn. The Hunting Licenses in our area have never been easier to obtain but I do still recommend that you allow me to help with that process.

  • We will have available Bull and Cow Elk licenses in July and do still have a few openings for the 2015 and 2016 season
  • "I have been forced to postpone my Mule Deer Hunting in the Pinedale area as our herd was devastated by the winter 2010. We are starting to see some very good bucks and the deer numbers are starting to recover well. I hope to be able to offer a hunt during the 2016 season. In addition, I am forced to postpone our Black Hills (Hulet, Wy.) hunts due to both the hard winter of 2010 and a disease situation during the summer of 2012. I hope to be able to offer this popular Whitetail/muley hunt in 2016."
  • We are actively booking our 2015 and 2016 hunting dates for Elk, Moose and Pronghorn. Our Elk & Moose herds are in extremely good shape and we will have some left over licenses for Elk in July."
