Hunt whitetails in Idaho during the rut in Units 11A and 14
The action is often fast and furious with the November rut exposing the best of the whitetail bucks. The fun part about this hunt is it is very much like hunting muleys, spot and stalk style. The shots can often be long but you will see a lot of good deer on this ranch so come prepared to get your sneak on and reach out and touch a dandy from distance.
This Idaho Whitetail hunt is on private land along both the Clearwater River and Hells Canyon regions of north central Idaho, which according to Idaho Fish and Game hold some of the densest populations of whitetails in the state. This trip has aired nine times on TNN Outdoors with Buckmasters founder Jackie Bushman and twice on RealTree Outdoors with Bill Jordan.

They average 98% success on this hunt, opportunity on mature bucks is easily 100% every year.
We hunt a lot of different places each year, but every year we make it a point to go back to Idaho. We have been there for the past 9 years and enjoy the country tremendously. The deer are highly visible, offering a good chance of taking a mature whitetail. I took one of my best bucks ever in 1994 with this Outfittes: a 25″ spread, 11 point. I look forward to going back again this fall.” ~Jackie Bushman, Buckmasters
Hunters can expect to hunt bucks of 140-160 B&C points, with several larger bucks harvested each year during Idaho’s November whitetail rut.
