the upper part of the property. The ranch was homesteaded in the
1800's by the James family, and is one of the oldest ranches in
the area. Van James was an avid hunter, and he started the 100 plus
year old hunting tradition on the ranch that continues to this day.

elk and mule deer hunting and excellent service. To that end, the
Otts book small groups for each season. Since James Creek Outfitters
is family owned and managed, they particularly enjoy family groups,
or a group of friends that want to enjoy a hunting vacation together.
Richard, who has over 30 years experience as a hunting guide, along
with a few other trusted guides, provides the hunting service. Evelyn
continues to provide family style meals, good homemade food, and
lots of it!
Ott family makes every effort to provide their clients with a successful
hunt, but they also strive to provide them with a pleasant atmosphere
and an enjoyable experience.
