As the sun set on a crisp evening in our upper camp overlooking the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness on November 18, the realization hit that our 2022 Idaho elk , deer and bear season had just come to an end. This past month has flown by and as we inch up on the end of 2022, we can’t help but look back at an amazing year with complete gratitude for the friends and adventures we got to experience and look forward to many more in the future. We are always grateful to see the many friends we have made over the past 18 years guiding in Idaho returning to hunt with us and just as grateful for the new friends we make each year. We are especially grateful for the support crew of incredible people that have been coming together at Castle Creek Outfitters and Wild Idaho Outfitters to help make your Idaho adventure as successful and comfortable as possible. It is always a bittersweet moment as generally we are tired from almost 3 full months in the backcountry and yet incredibly grateful for all the great and wonderful people whose paths crossed with ours in pursuit of their Idaho backcountry adventure. This season was no different, and as we get together with friends and family to celebrate this Holiday Season, we hope you can look back on your time in Idaho with, if not a smile, at least not a grimace. Merry Christmas to you and yours! We hope to see many of you on future Idaho adventures!
