Elk, Deer, & Bear Hunts
Mountain Lion Hunts
Elk Creek Outfitters is a licensed and bonded hunting business permitted in the Krassell Ranger District of the Payette National Forest. We hunt approximately eighty square miles of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, which is the largest wilderness area in the lower forty-eight states. We are located in Fish and Game unit 20A on the South Fork of the Salmon River in Central Idaho. Base camp is located at approximately 6000 feet elevation and hunting is generally done below 8000 feet.
We offer guided or drop camp hunts for elk, mule deer, bear, and mountain lion. Our combination hunts run September 14th through November 19th. Early season hunts offer greater opportunity for bugling bulls as well as black bear. Later hunts are still great for elk and are excellent to hunt mule deer in the rut with the added opportunity to use hounds on mountain lions. We also have some early September black bear hunts using spot and stalk as well as baiting.
This is a "no-draw" (guaranteed license) area for Elk and is one of the only areas in the West with "no-draw" licenses for rifle hunting during the September bugling season.
Trent Bullock was born and raised in Central Idaho, as was most of the crew. The guides and wranglers are all experienced horsemen and familiar with hunting and the country. We look forward to hunting with you this fall
