Jackson Hole and Yellowstone Wildlife Tours

The Greater Yellowstone ecosystem has an abundance of wildlife. We frequently encounter moose, bison, elk and pronghorn antelope. Less often seen, but by no means rare, are black bears, fox, coyotes and bald eagles. Our two most glamorous species, the Grizzly bear and wolves, are observed but can require a bit of luck to find.

Although animals can be somewhat unpredictable, I can absolutely guarantee that you will see wildlife during this tour. I am out roaming our parks nearly everyday and we’ll rely on previous days sightings as a starting point for your tour. This experience helps reduce a lot of non-productive driving and greatly increases our chances of locating wildlife. I keep the itinerary open and dynamic; we go where the animals are! The months of May and June, as well as the fall months, are ideal for wildlife tours as the parks are less crowded and the animals are more active in the cooler temperatures. The fall months bring bugling elk to the parks and is a highlight of the year. July and August are also excellent and the winter months offer easier viewing as the animals are less active and silhouetted against the snow. To bring our subjects closer, my tours also include a spotting scope and a pair of binoculars for your use.


Half Day:

Depending on your schedule, these tours begin at either dawn or dusk which are the hours that wildlife are the most active. We’ll concentrate on the animals that reside in Grand Teton National Park, observing and photographing them in their unparalleled natural habitats.

Full Day:

A full day tour begins with an early morning pickup, proceeding into Grand Teton National Park. While I do have some “ace in the hole” locations that we’ll visit , we may go directly to a recent days sighting. The full day tours offer more exploring time and flexibility and we often venture into Yellowstone in pursuit of wildlife. Our day might end with another pass through Grand Teton at dusk, which is certainly prime time!
