Idaho Elk Hunt on Private Ground
Idaho elk hunting on over 60,000 acres of private land! Add to that careful quotas and you have a place that produces outstanding bulls.
Located in the Hell’s Canyon area, this outfitter has one of the largest land holdings in the state of Idaho. Because they have been managing their wolf populations from the get go, we haven’t seen a drop off in bull quality at all.
*Mule Deer Included on this Idaho Elk Hunt
The elk are in large herds this time of the year, so often, there are multiple trophy bulls within sight at once. They are still bugling at this time of year so we use that to our advantage for locating the herd bull. It’s very common to see 100+ elk a day during this hunt.

Our Advice is Free
I have a strong passion for hunting and enjoy seeing new country. I live in Va so I don’t know who to talk to or trust when I want to go out west on a trip. I also have a busy schedule and not a lot of time to research guides and land to hunt on. That’s wear Outdoor Internationals hunting consultant’s come into play. This is my fourth year booking with Marc Warnke and I can say every trip has been a great time.
Everything that Outdoors International has recommended to me, from hunts to outfitters to gear choices, has been 100% spot-on. I can’t imagine doing it any other way.
