Idaho Rut Elk
All our Idaho elk hunts are pack-in hunts. On these hunts we stay in comfortable wall tents. Some camps may have horses available to the hunters and others may not, depending on the hunt.
Both of these seasons are Bugle Rut Rifle hunts. We do offer Drop Camp Hunts for the hunters that are more the Do-it-Yourself type.
Idaho is one of the very few areas left in the U.S. that offer a RIFLE hunter the opportunity of close encounters with bugling bulls. This is our most physically demanding hunt. We have a 250 pound weight limit for all horseback hunts.
