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.

Wild Idaho’s Spring Bear Season OFFICIALLY Arrives!

Bulk Bear Bait for a Successful Spring Bear Hunt

Idaho Spring Bear Season “Officially” Opens in Backcountry Units

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.
