About the event

This 2-Day camp will be hosted at a beautiful Elk County, Pennsylvania lodge along the Clarion River - big woods, Appalachian Mountain country. This class will combine classroom and in-the-field scouting to help you locate more bucks and create a game plan to increase your success rate. Join Beau Martonik and other seasoned big woods hunters in an interactive event. Topics will include map reading, e-scouting, buck bedding, food source identification, seasonal scouting, trail camera strategies, wind/thermal demonstrations, creating formal plans, choosing the right tree, and much more. Our goal is to give you the knowledge, framework, and confidence to make your opportunities.


You will get your hands on gear and learn how to use it. We will have a saddle hunting set up to give a try on your own. There will be exclusive deals, free swag, and big gear giveaways available for attendees.

The last 2 camps were a huge success! The event sold out in less than 3 minutes both years. This year, we're continuing what we started with a full 2 days, 6 successful hunters speaking, more scouting, more giveaways, chef-cooked meals, new venue, and much more!

"I was fortunate to be part of the first Mountain Buck scouting camp.  I wanted to reach out and say thank you.  The camp challenged me to work harder and get out of my comfort zone.  When I lost my hunting spot I had hunted my entire life.  I started to utilize a lot of techniques we spoke about at the camp.

The season provided many challenges.  Hard days without seeing deer.  Mistakes made while learning to saddle hunt.  In the end, I was able utilize the skills and technology discussed to find success.

While I would love to be at the next camp.  I don’t want to take a spot from someone else and deny their chance to experience the camp.  It will likely change their approach as it did mine."
