Guided Michigan Hunts

East Lake Outfitters is a Michigan-based outfitter/guide service that offers our services to licensed hunters in a variety of ways. First of all, our hunts are for free-ranging, wild fences, etc. What sets ELO apart from our competition or the do-it-yourselfer? We have experienced "hunters" that do your homework for you a wonderful opportunity in the outdoors. We spend a lot of time scouting...year 'round! We understand your love for the out of doors...and the time and expenses that go into preparing for the hunt. We want you to maximize your hunt time and not waste a penny on extra fuel, finding that 'just-right-spot' only to be disappointed on your opening day...for whatever reason. At the same time, most hunters love to make memories hunting like their dad or grandpa did...completely in the wild. Thus, creating those memories to share with family and friends....memories to bring back to deer camp for years to come. Upon contacting ELO, you get a chance to share your hunting intentions...letting us prepare your hunting spot the way you would...the way you envision your hunt should be. Therefore, we are not a cookie-cutter outfitter/guide service. We guarantee what we can control...we do not what we cannot.


Nice Buck First Day Out

Whether this is your first time hunting a certain species or a veteran in the wild, ELO has an experience awaiting you.
