Big game hunting is offered in Idaho and Wyoming. We hunt the "Tex Creek" zone in Idaho, unit 66. In Wyoming, we are licensed to hunt area 151(region H), elk in area 85, and moose in area 20. We hunt black bear, mountain lion, and goat in Idaho and Wyoming, as well. There is a lot of opportunity in these areas for trophy mule deer, elk, moose, goat, black bear, mountain lion, and predators.
Over-the-counter tags are available for general elk and deer hunts as well as archery hunts in Idaho. Wyoming tags are granted through the draw system. Idaho late season draw-only hunts for mule deer provide an excellent opportunity for a nice buck.
An Idaho non-resident deer tag can be used for a lion or bear, if the opportunity arises. There is not a lot of hunting pressure during archery and muzzleloader season because of the terrain and roadless status. Draw-only moose hunts also provide a great chance at a trophy bull. Please refer to Idaho Fish & Game regulations or website for all of the options available.
A list of hunts offered and hunting dates will be given upon request. Please feel free to call and talk hunting. Hope to hear form all you hunters.
We offer a self-guided hunt option in Idaho which includes a fully-equipped wall tent camp, a wrangler/guide in camp, horses in camp, how-to and hunt suggestions by wrangler/guide, hunting area suggestions, and one nice meal provided by wrangler/guide each evening, meat packing, etc. We do not offer drop camps or self-guided hunts in Wyoming at this time.
Youth hunts are available with any paying adult at the rate of one half price of regular hunt price. A youth hunter is 12-16 years old as shown on his/her current hunting license. A current Hunter Education Certification is also required. Hunt price reduction is not available for license/tag/permit fees issued by Idaho Fish and Game. We welcome the young hunters. Please refer to Idaho Fish and Game big game regulations for any questions.
