Merry Christmas

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas from “the gang” at Wild Idaho outfitters! It is always a pleasure to watch as the horses are turned out for their much deserved 6 month vacation. We hope this Christmas finds you enjoying rest and peace with family and or friends this Holiday season. Now that we are past the shortest day of the year, I know I look forward to the days getting longer and that snow turning to belly deep Timothy grass again and watching for the spring flowers to arrive.

Why Hunt Idaho?

Short answer. Because you can! Yup, that is the answer, because you can. As a sportsman/hunter first and an outfitter second, I cherish my opportunities to hunt out west and based on what I have discovered in my travels, reading the news and talking to hunters from all over the globe about hunting in “their” states, once again Idaho simply rises to the top as THE best place for an opportunity to hunt…bar none!

Coast to Coast on Idaho Bull Elk

There were a lot of great stories from our 2014 adventures some we are even able to repeatSmile Some though, are simply what I call those really “special stories” absolutely worth sharing. This is one of them.

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
