Shoal Creek Hunting Guide School

Extensive Hands-on Training for Successful Wilderness Guides

Shoal Creek Outfitters is thrilled to offer an extensive guide school located near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Upon partnering with ELM Outfitters and Guides Training Program, we are able to provide a horse-based operation to learn the foundations of becoming an auspicious outfitter and guide.

After completing our guide school, you will be able to understand the fundamentals of horsemanship, the different styles of packing, the process of setting up a camp, hunting regulations, weapon knowledge and glassing game to name a few.  

Check out some highlights from last year!​

All students are required to complete the ELM Home Study Prep-Course BEFORE attending our school.

Using the Erv Malnarich Outfitters and Guides Bible, this course will give you a good foundation in which to prepare you for your hands-on training at Shoal Creek Guide and Packer School. Elm Outfitters & Guides Training Program has maintained 100% job placement assistance for qualified graduates with reputable outfitters in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Please contact Michael or Julie Knott for more information regarding the ELM Home Study Course.
