Idaho's Finest Muledeer Hunting

Our hunting areas are in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, the Salmon-Challis and the Payette in the Chamberlain Basin.

These areas offer outstanding opportunities for trophy Mule Deer Hunts! You will see many Bucks in November during the rut.
Our camps are all done in the wilderness, we have comfortable heated tents. The country is steep and rugged. Because of its remote location and the ruggedness of the area, you will more than likely not see many hunters. Our camps are located far enough away from the areas the Bucks frequent, yet close enough to hunt to on foot every day.
When hunting from the Salmon River, we sometimes stay at the River of No Return Lodge.
We are in a Joint Party Agreement with River of No Return Lodge to provide Lodging services during our fall mule deer hunts. (Client must make separate payments for services provided to each Outfitter).

Idaho Bear Hunts

Our hunting areas are in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness and the Selway-Bitterroot Wildernes. We hunt units 17 and 20.

The Bears are abundant in Idaho! Every hunter can shoot up to 2 bears.

During the day we glass hillsides and tend the baits. In the early evening, we will place you over one of the baits in the area.

Camps are clean and comfortable. We have comfortable cots with pads for your added comfort. Most bear hunts are done from our base camp at Kim Creek.

Color phases are brown, black, blonde & cinnamon. The bear population is high which increases your chance of getting a trophy sized bear.

Idaho Lion Hunts

Between elk/deer season and bear season, lion hunting is a great sport to get into, and probably the most fun! We hunt from November until the end of February. Mountain lions are a hard animal to spot; therefore they require well trained hounds to hunt them.

Our area allows you to hunt up to 2 lions per hunter; Idaho’s lion numbers have been on the rise for the last few years giving hunters an excellent opportunity to harvest a mature Tom.

We will try to schedule your hunt for the week your choice, but we ask that you be somewhat flexible. The best weather to hunt in is a light snowfall, or after a snow storm has hit. As long as there is snow on the ground, our dogs can run a lion.

We use snowmobiles, at times we have even gone in on horseback, whatever it takes to get you into the lions territory. We have all up-to-date radios/satellite phones for communication and dog tracking equipment. This allows us to make the most out of your time while hunting and ensures that

Elk combo hunt

Hunt: Elk, deer, bear,wolf.

Our area is located in the Frank Church -River of No Return Wilderness, The Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, and The Chamberlain Basin, which consists of many acres of roadless country. Units 17, 20 and 21.

Our Elk Season begins in September and runs through October. Deer season begins in September and runs through November. We offer September Rifle hunts during the rut. We are allocated a certain amount of tags for September, these hunts fill up fast!

Our October hunts are very promising as well. Many times Elk will still be bugling in early October. If we have snow, it makes the elk move more frequently and are easier to spot. The fires in the last few years have burned many acres creating excellent habitat and creating great hunting opportunities. We find ourselves using spotting scopes more than ever before. This is some of the best spot and stalk hunting in the nation, it is not uncommon to see many trophy class elk/deer during your
