Bulk Bear Bait for a Successful Spring Bear Hunt

We have begun selling bear bait at our Challis, Idaho location. We are excited about the possibilities of being a “one stop shop” for all things bear hunting and bear baiting related. We have been baiting bears in the Idaho backcountry for ten seasons now and have constantly worked to improve our system of baiting and over time have developed what we believe is a very “complete” system for baiting and are excited to share our system of scents, sprays and bulk baits.

Idaho Spring Bear Season “Officially” Opens in Backcountry Units

It is almost time for my second favorite time of year…spring bear season! It “officially” opens in many back country units like where we guide in the Middlefork zone on April 1st. I say officially as that is when it does open, but with this years late and heavy snowfalls, I am confident the bears will not be waking from their winter slumber for at least a few more weeks, at least at our elevations.

Idaho Trophy Species Applications are Being Accepted

If you have ever wanted to hunt bighorn sheep, moose or mountain goat in the great state of Idaho, April is the time to apply for those hunts. Remember Idaho does not have a points system, so everyone is on equal footing when they apply for these coveted tags.

We are Having a Wolf Predator Hunt Sale

Cabin fever may be setting in and with bear hunting still over a month away, we wanted to come up with a cure for cabin fever so we are having a hunting sale! We are offering a 4 day 3 night wolf/predator hunting sale for only $995. That’s right we know predator hunting is tough and doubly so in Idaho’s back country so we wanted to make it affordable to get out of the house for a cabin fever cure.

Spring Bear Season is Just Around the Corner…I Wish:)

Although we are having a mild winter here in Idaho, it is still a few months before the “official” opener of Idaho’s spring bear hunting season. But with these exposed south facing slopes and not enough snow to participate in outdoor winter sports like snowmobiling and cross country skiing, cabin fever seems a bit stronger this year.
