About Us

Montana’s Premier Summer Pack Trip Outfitters:

The K Lazy 3 has been operating wilderness outdoor adventures and horseback riding trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness area for over 40 years. We will show you a quality western outdoor wilderness adventure, be it a Rocky Mountain horseback ride, remote Montana fly fishing, photographing the numerous Montana game and fish species, or just plain enjoying the wilderness adventure.

Owners Kenny and Coley Low are native Montanans who have been roving the mountains of Western Montana their whole lives. Originally from Cascade, Montana, Kenny grew up hunting and fishing, ranching, and rodeoing before attending MSU and later purchasing the K Lazy 3 from a family friend.

Kenny had often visited the K Lazy 3 growing up, while his father worked there for original owners, Kenny and Mary Faith Hoeffner. The ranch and its surrounding lands became almost a home-away-from home for Kenny, and the Hoeffners like family – in fact, he was named after Kenny Hoeffner. The original K Lazy 3 started out as just one camp – Meadow Creek Camp – and has grown into what it is today, a thriving and active outfitter camp in the heart of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, where Kenny Lowe continues his connection to the ranch and its surrounding mountain wilderness.

Kenny knows the land well and takes pride in providing a personal touch and attention to detail in every aspect. Tradition and hard work are important and solid values that are behind everything he does, from booking reservations personally to riding with his outfitters and guests into the best-kept secrets of Montana’s elk hunting lands. Kenny is passionate about staying closely involved with every process at K Lazy 3 and maintains the philosophy that “can’t” isn’t in the vocabulary at K Lazy 3 – there’s nowhere they won’t go, no elk they won’t chase, and no mountain they can’t climb.

When the season changes to fall and the elk begin to bugle, K Lazy 3 turns its full attention to Montana hunting — Montana elk hunting and mule deer hunting. Operating two early season (September through early November) backcountry camps in the Scapegoat Wilderness area, where the trailhead is 60 miles northwest of Helena, Montana K Lazy 3’s primary hunting focus is elk hunting and mule deer.; However, we are also available for those lucky few that draw a moose or mountain goat permit in this area (region 280).
We  use the tried and true time-honored methods of wilderness travel: mule, Rocky Mountain horse ride, and tent camps. K Lazy 3 is a member of the Montana Outfitters and Guide Association and the Professional Wilderness Outfitters Association, and is permitted by by the Lincoln Ranger District for priority use on the Helena, Lolo, Flathead, and Lewis and Clark National Forests (Montana Board of Outfitters License #30503).
Our mission is to provide you with a Rocky Mountain wilderness experience that will renew the spirit, refresh the mind and invigorate the senses!
