Hells Canyon RIfle Hunting

This is a traditional horseback rifle elk hunt conducted in Hells Canyon in IDFG unit 18. Our clients get the opportunity to use our outfitter-allocated tags in this world-renowned controlled hunt. 

The hunts are eight days long and are conducted out of our wall tent camps and spike camps. We run quality hunts not quantity. Each of our guests gets a true hunting experience without large camps or overhunted elk herds. We specialize in harvesting herd bulls. This is not a meat hunt, it is a hunt for the serious elk hunter ready to elk hunt aggressively for large bulls in some of North America's toughest terrain.  

Hunters are encouraged to make preseason physical fitness and marksmanship a priority. We hunt hard and are willing to go the extra miles so being ready will only enhance your experience on this legendary hunt. 

The Host

We are licensed to hunt in The Hells Canyon National Recreation Area, the Nez Perce and Payette National forests, and over 10,000 acres of private land. Our Exclusive Outfitting area includes over 300 square miles of some of the best big game hunting territory that North America has to offer. We provide trophy hunts for Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail, Mountain Lion, Black Bears and Mountain Goats.  

The Area

Hells Canyon, with its rugged terrain, limited tags, and world-class genetics is well known for producing some of the highest quality big game animals in the world. Our seasoned stock and experienced guides will allow you to venture into the most remote areas of America's deepest canyon where the bulls and bucks have the opportunity to grow old. You will find that our rates are competitive, with no hidden fees and our employees are friendly and will be there to help you every step of the way.

The Hunt

All of our pack-in elk hunts are eight days long (6 full hunt days) and include food, guiding, trophy handling, meat packing, and camping facilities. Camp consists of cook tent, guest tent, guide tent, and out house. Hunters rest on quality cots and pads with a wood stove to warm by. Our accommodations are the best for a wilderness setting. They are remote hunts so there aren't fancy chefs but nourishing hot meals are a staple with good food. Clients are guided daily off of our seasoned saddle stock.

Base price is per person for a 2x1 guided hunt. Make it a 1x1 guided hunt for an additional fee per person.
