Saying good bye to the old and hello to the new

The sun has set on 2016 and has now risen on 2017. For us here at Wild Idaho Outfitters, 2016 will go down as one of our best years ever.

The Conclusion of Our 2016 Season

he sun has set on our 2016 Idaho hunting season and as we gather with family and friends this Thanksgiving Day, we here at Wild Idaho Outfitters want to say thanks for an amazing year! Each year I say, “Man, this is our best year ever”, and yet it seems like it does get better year after year. This was the end of our twelfth season of owning and operating Wild Idaho Outfitters and we have had 12 consecutive “best years ever”.

Old Glory is flying in the Frank

If Old Glory is flying in the Frank, it can only mean one thing: the 2016 Idaho fall hunting seasons are open and underway for all to enjoy. We have begun with our fall bear hunting season here in the backcountry units. Most of the Front Range Units’ archery season opened on August 30.

The 2016 Idaho fall hunting seasons are almost here

We are just a few short days away from the 2016 fall hunting season here in Idaho. August 30 is the opener of most fall bear hunting units along with statewide general archery season for elk and deer. Here in Central Idaho’s wilderness backcountry units, we are fortunate to enjoy a two-month long rifle season, so our first opener is bear season and we are getting ready. Our first baits have now been set, camps are getting readied, and firewood is being cut and stacked and come next Tuesday we will welcome our first fall 2016 hunters here at Wild Idaho Outfitters.

The Best Friend is a Friend with a Boat

The only thing better than owning a boat - is having a friend who owns a boat. I am lucky enough to have a friend who happens to own lots of boats: rafts to be more specific. His name is Ari Kotler and he is the owner of SOAR Northwest, a company that floats the main Salmon River and the Selway River here in Idaho.

Looking Forward to Idaho Units 27 & 28 Fall 2016 Hunts

It seems like just yesterday we were pulling out of spring bear camp and here it is now the middle of August. We are only days away from setting baits, 2 weeks away from fall bear season and one month away from all our fall combo hunts.

Investing in Trail Work

Wild Idaho Outfitters invested some serious time, money and effort into trail work this summer. We hired a crew of four young men who worked long hours and cleared over 30 miles of trail in the “Frank” by cutting or moving 1,985 logs from the trails over a 4-week period. All this work was done with hand tools.
