Welcome to The Hideout

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive upscale working cattle, riding, fly-fishing and adventure guest ranch in Shell, WY (east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park). In addition to riding, working cattle and fly-fishing, we offer an array of non-riding activities and adventures such as trapshooting, archery, canoeing, hiking, biking, 4x4 tours, etc.

Limited to approximately 25 guests per week from all over the world and with access to 85 horses, a 1:1 staff / guest ratio and the owners and management actively involved with the well-being of our guests, we are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, lodging, staff (we speak 4 languages), horses and personal, almost customized attention. We are very multi-cultural and diverse.

Every year The Hideout books long before the start of the season, mostly because of word of mouth and returning guests. As we do not plan to increase the number of guests per week please book your vacation long ahead of the season.

Trapshooting and archery are popular non-riding activities if you decide to stay a day or afternoon out of the saddle. Along with compound bows and a crossbow, you can also practice your skills shooting the more traditional long bows.

2014 Season New Archery Range

Until last year we just placed our targets on the lawn backed by bales of hay of straw to catch stray arrows. This year we finished our brand new archery range and replaced the bales of hay and straw by solid professional archery mats that will stop any arrow that misses the targets.

Our wranglers will be happy to help you and set you up for a great Robin Hood time.

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.
