Hunting Trips

1-888-300-HUNT (4868)

We look forward to sharing some of Idaho’s most productive trophy hunting with you. We hunt Elk, Deer (Mule and Whitetail), Black Bear, Mountain Lion, Moose, and incidental Predators, plus Blue, Spruce and Ruffed Grouse. We feature a Combination Elk and Deer Hunt at the price you would normally pay for just an Elk hunt. In addition the nonresident deer tag in my hunting areas can be utilized to take either a Mule Deer or Whitetail Deer or a Black Bear or a Mountain Lion instead of a Deer. In addition to an Elk on my hunt you have the choice of four other species.

Our camps are located in rugged primitive country and road-less areas in Idaho’s Panhandle National Forest. We hunt Fish & Game units # 6 and # 7 along the picturesque and nationally designated wild and scenic St. Joe River drainage and adjacent the Montana boarder

These units hold one of Idaho’s largest elk herds.

Due to the high numbers of big game, there is no drawing required for license or Elk or Deer tags. However, these tags do sell out early and the outfitters reserve pool of nonresident license and tags are sold on a first booked first served basis. To guarantee tags and the hunt dates you want it is wise to book as early as you can

Hunts include a complete wall tent camp with camp cook, hearty meals, camp guides, packing services, saddle horses and mules, sleeping cots, woodstoves, lanterns and camp tools. All you will need to bring is your personal items as suggested on the clothing list we will send once you have booked.

We also feature a 17,000 Acre Private Ranch Hunt for Trophy Mule Deer in Washington State. To access information on this hunt scroll down the page and click on the Hunters (Mule Deer) Ranch logo or go to www.huntersranch.com

Elk

Combo Trophy Rifle Hunt Elk and Deer
This is our most popular hunt and combo trophy Elk and Deer is the reason.  This hunt occurs in October and includes seasons for Elk, Deer, Bear, and Lion.  Our primitive and road-less hunting units are highly successful in producing record book bulls.

Elk Archery

Archery Trophy Elk Hunt
Archery season occurs during the September Elk rut.  This is a productive time to hunt and provides enhanced Pope and Young trophy opportunities.  In addition to trophy Elk, both Deer and Bear are also in season.

Elk hunt

Muzzleloader Elk Trophy Hunt
In November, bull Elk herd up and provide one of the best opportunities for hunters to take home a trophy.  Idaho Fish & Game will verify that our muzzleloader area is probably the best in the state.  Deer are rutting and may also be taken at this time.

Mule Deer

“Private Ranch” Trophy Mule Deer Hunt
September for Archery or October for Rifle is the time to hunt Washington State’s exclusive 17,000 Acre Hunters Ranch for Trophy Mule Deer.  For details on this limited hunt scroll down the page and click on Hunters Mule Deer Ranch logo or go to www.huntersranch.com

White Tail Deer

Late Season Trophy Rut Hunt for Whitetail Deer
November is the rut for Deer and Late Rifle Season in Unit 6 is the time to take home a Trophy Whitetail Buck.  My hunting area in units 6 & 7 are adjacent therefore this late season rife hunt for Whitetail Deer can also be in combination with my Muzzleloader hunt for Elk and Deer.

Treed Cougar

Trophy Mountain Lion Hunt
Our area produces numerous Pope & Young and Boone & Crocket Lions. The best hunting conditions occur during December and January. This hunt uses well-trained hounds and is a very exciting hunt to experience. During our winter season Lion hunts we utilize cabin accommodations.

bear

Spring Bear Hunt
April, May and June is the season for trophy Bear. Spring hides are of prime quality and our area provides unique trophy opportunities by producing all four-color phases: black, blond, cinnamon, and chocolate. Hunts are primarily conducted over bait. Hounds are also available upon request.

Elk

Grouse Hunt
All three species of Grouse (Ruffed, Spruce and Blue) are in season from September to December. Grouse are excellent table cuisine and are hunted incidentally or in conjunction with our combo elk and deer hunts.

Moose

Moose Hunt
Moose hunts are a controlled hunt in Idaho, and require a lottery drawing for a hunting tag. Please call for rates or questions on this customized hunt. Our hunting areas in Idaho’s fish & game units 6 & 7 continually rank as top areas in the State for size of antlers of all Shiras Moose harvested.
