Welcome to The Hideout

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all inclusive working cattle, riding, fly-fishing and adventure guest ranch in Shell, WY (east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park). Families, adults and single travelers from around the world return to The Hideout each year for a world-class riding,

Limited to approximately 25 guests per week, we are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, lodging, staff (we speak 4 languages,) horses and personal, almost customized attention.

A popular non-riding activity is archery. Along with compound bows you can also practice your skills shooting the more traditional long bows.

This season we are considering adding a crossbow for you to enjoy. We are guest ranch, ranch and farm so we like to shoot our arrows to targets which are safely backed by huge bales of hay or straw. You will feel like Robin Hood or William Tell.

When they are not hunting themselves your teacher might be one of our highly specialized archery hunters. These men and women consider hunting with a bow and arrow the only real hunting. The Big Horn Mountains are a very popular destination for archery hunters.

In addition to turkey, deer, and other small game some of these hunters hunt big game like elk, grizzly, wolves, etc. Considering they respect “the gentleman’s 35 foot range” it takes skill and patience to approach game at such a close distance.
