Buck Creek Guide Service, Inc. has been offering high quality big game hunts in Montana's Swan Valley since 1978.

Buck Creek Guide Service, Inc. acquired and merged with WTR Outfitters in 2012. WTR Outfitters is a division that operates primarily in the Scapegoat and Bob Marshall Wilderness and offers a diversity of services including traditional pack trips, guided fishing and hunting, and livestock-supported backpacking and mountain hiking adventures.

Buck Creek Guide Service Inc. offers rifle and archery hunts throughout the Swan and upper Clearwater Valleys and adjacent mountain ranges. Our area of Montana is well known for whitetail deer, black bear and mountain lion. Lesser known, but also available are high country mule deer and elk.

Tom Parker, your host, is a licensed outfitter and has guided extensively throughout the region including the Bob Marshall and Scapegoat Wilderness areas, the Rocky Mountain Front, and the Swan and Mission Mountains.

"My family has been hunting with Buck Creek Guide Service for over twenty years - the country is spectacular, the people are amazing and the hunting is great."- Mike Foster

Our hunts are based out of a historic homestead along the Swan River. We offer a full service hunt including lodging, meals, transportation, guides and game retrieval.


Tom and Melanie Parker also offer off season wildlife ecology and natural history trips through Northwest Connections, a non profit research and education center they started in 1997.

Tom has worked as a wildlife research technician on species as diverse as mountain lions, lynx, red backed voles and grizzly bears


Buck Creek Guide Service advertises primarily through word of mouth. Many of our clients have been coming for years, and we consider them friends and family as much as anything.
