The 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”. One of the best parts of this job, unequivocally, is getting to know the people we meet and enjoy camp with. It is my sincerest belief that people arrive as hunters/clients/customers and leave as friends. We have made many friends from all over this wonderful country of ours and are grateful for you all. We hope as you sit down with family and friends this holiday weekend and as you reflect on things you are grateful for you are able to reflect on what a great country we live in where we can enjoy public lands that are here for all of us. That we can pursue outdoor interests, regardless of them being consumptive or non-consumptive, because of our public lands system. In this crazy political environment we live in, one thing we all seem to have in common is our love for outdoor pursuits and our ability to enjoy them on public land. We are truly grateful for all of you who have ever hunted with us and for those of you who have already booked for future seasons. We recognize that it is more than just the price of the hunt involved in coming hunting with us. We recognize that there is time away from work, time away from family and there is the travel time related to making it to this remote section of Idaho, so from all of us at Wild Idaho Outfitters, Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!
