Fall is hunting season in Wyoming, and the Jackson Hole-Grand Teton area is one of the best spots in the country for big game hunters. The region offers guided hunts for black bear, bison, antelope, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, mule deer, and whitetail deer, among other species. All nonresidents must have a local guide or professional outfitter, as they are not permitted to hunt alone.

At Flying Saddle Resort, we are right in the middle of the action, yet less crowded and more affordably priced than the surrounding tourist towns. We will be happy to connect you with a local outfitter for the type of game you want to hunt.

Hunting Licenses, Permits, and Regulations

Please be aware that hunting in Wyoming is heavily regulated. You must obtain a license for the species you want to hunt. Some licenses are readily available, while others are available only through a lottery system. Fees can be quite high for some species.

In addition, you must possess a conservation stamp and proof of hunter safety such as a certification of completion from an approved hunting course. If you plan to hunt with a bow or crossbow, you must also possess an archery license. Only certain types of firearms and ammo are allowed, depending on the species you are hunting. Your outfitter will help you understand exactly what you need to do to legally and safely hunt your desired species.

About Flying Saddle Resort

Built in 1949 as a gift for a returning WWII hero, Flying Saddle Resort was purchased and fully remodeled in 2008. Today, we pride ourselves on our upscale rustic feel, family friendliness, and full-service amenities. Our new Tower building offers large rooms with balconies, while the original building features standard motel rooms. Private log cabins for two are a favorite with couples.

We offer everything you need on site, including an affordable yet upscale Western steakhouse, a laid-back Western sports bar, an indoor heated pool and hot tub, a fitness center, and an outdoor patio. Our seven landscaped acres feature a drive-through liquor store, a tennis court, and a well-stocked gift shop.
