The Northern Idaho Panhandle is the top-producing elk zone in Idaho. We offer guided, semi-guided or unguided combo hunts for elk, whitetail, mule deer, bear, wolf, & cougar, stay in cabins or tent camps, and purchase tags over the counter, no draw needed.


Shot opportunity on the elk hunt usually averages 50% to 80% opportunity for one animal, and some hunters get chances at more than one animal.


Guided hunts have your choice of 1 or 2 hunters per guide. Your guide will also field dress, skin, and pack out your game. Semi-guided camp hunts will have a cook and 1 guide in camp assisting and packing game for a group of 4 to 6 hunters.


Lodging & meals are provided at the house and cabins or stay in a mountain tent camp. Arrive 2 pm-4 pm, check your weapon on a target before sunset, then hunt each day, move out of your room the morning of the last day, hunt until noon & depart.


Wake up to a continental breakfast each morning, leave camp early to get into the elk hunting areas by dawn, take a sack lunch with you or you can return to camp mid-day for lunch, your dinner will be ready when you return in the evening.


Elk hunting methods vary and may include calling, watching elk trails, glassing logging cuts, hiking on ridges, walking closed logging roads, and watching water sources or elk wallows.


Trophy quality is good, we see bulls with antlers ranging from spikes to 7x7's, an average bull elk is probably a 5x5, and bulls scoring over 300" are taken in the area every season.


Archers should practice sitting and standing at 10 to 60 yards. Most rifle shots are 30 to 300 yards, sight dead on at 200 yards, but practice out to 300 yards (and know your max range).
