They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Maybe that is true and maybe it “ain’t,” but it is always fun to look back over the past year through pictures taken either by myself, our guides or even those shared by our hunting clients. It helps us relive some of the moments that makes our jobs as guides one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world (in my opinion of course).

Happy Thanksgiving from Idaho!

I hope if you are reading this on Thanksgiving Day, you are enjoying some quiet time with family, have a full belly of Thanksgiving turkey and are just taking a few minutes to sit back and reflect on all that is wonderful in your life. If you are reading it after Thanksgiving, I hope your day was full of fun.

Idaho Fall Bear Hunt is Just Around the Corner

With snow on the peaks this morning and seeming as though we were just packing out spring bear camp, here it is time for fall bear hunting season in Central Idaho’s Frank Church River of No Return wilderness area. We hunt area 27 which is a 2 bear area with high percentage color phase bears and reduced pricing on nonresident tags. We still have just a few spots left for this fall, so if you have not gotten all your hunting plans made, come join us.

Spot Available for Late Season Idaho Mule Deer Hunt in the Rut

Putting in for draw hunts in multiple states, at first glance, seems like it would increase your odds of drawing a tag…and you would be right…BUT it also increases your chances at drawing the potentially unwanted scenario of drawing 2 tags in 2 states and being married to a woman who only allows 1 hunt per year

Are You Going Hunting this Year?

By now most of you should have gotten that “lump of coal” we call the draw results for our western big game hunting adventures. That hope of drawing for that “special” tag we seem to continually wait for. If your results looked like mine and read “unsuccessful” for all species applied, don’t lose hope. I know I have said it a lot and am saying it again…Idaho is the best kept secret in the hunting world today.

New Idaho Youth Deer Hunting Opportunity

Wild Idaho’s Spring Bear Season OFFICIALLY Arrives!

It can only mean one thing when we are hauling hay, chained up in the old Dodge over high mountain passes, shoeing horses at the trailhead and crossing rising rivers, all in the same day!
