As far as we are concerned - the Elk hunting in our corner of the LOLO Elk zone in Idaho has been very good these past few years. Hunting remote well scouted areas paid off for our hunters.


Low tag sales numbers (lowered quotas), the mild winters with the wolf hunt, habitat improvement, as well as our continued yearly big kill of predatory spring bear has produced better than average kill rates, nice bulls taken and lots of good bulls still on the hoof.


Hunting has NEVER been easy in this area but the right preparation, planning and hard work really pays off before and after the kill.

 

Idaho is a great elk destination. Our Combo hunts are very varied offering the hunter a wide range of game to take.  All elk tags are guaranteed through us - no draw. Contained in this website is lots of information detailing all of our Idaho hunts. If you need more specifics or would like to reserve space do not hesitate to call us right away.

 

Archery 2010 went very well we worked several bulls killing 3 for 7  with 3 misses and everyone seeing bulls for 2011 consider the  23rd of September. Rifle Season 2010 was very successful. We had a 50% kill and had many others seen and passed or shot at. 2011 saw a 70% shot opportunity for Archery and 75% rifle elk with close to 40% kill with many others passed - everyone saw elk and wolves were shot at and tagged.

 

For 2012 We had a good season too although FEWER wolves were seen and heard than in recent years. 2013 had fewer hunter numbers but a 60% kill among hunters hunting all 5 days!

 

2014 and 2015 had awesome shot opportunity rate and hunters scored some good bulls but we realized more than ever that weapon readiness is so important! 


2016 had awful weather but good results despite the rain every day. 2017 still has limited rifle or archery spots open. to contact us for further information or to reserve space. 

 

The cost of the guided Deer and Elk combo Hunt is currently $4200.00 plus 9% tax or $4578.00 tags are $571.50 for elk plus $20 for the archery or ML stamp. Deer tags are $301.75.  If you plan a hunt with us tags will be guaranteed. You must get LOLO A & B tags (or we can get them for you) for you as per instruction. Otherwise you are responsible for buying your own tags in a timely fashion unless specifically told otherwise – check with Inga for any questions and help buying your tags in advance.

 

Hunts are booked with $1000 down lock into current price and reserve a tag. Tag prices are subject to change.  Hunters will have the expense of transportation to and from Missoula MT and 2 nights stay at Ruby's at about $70 per night. All animals will be caped and transported to the taxidermist for head and hide shipper and processor but meat processing (about $00.75 a pound) and taxidermy will be the hunter’s expense. Gratuity for your guide and cook is also not included in the price of the hunt. There are no trophy fees.  A second Deposit of $1000 is due along with your license purchase for ML OR Arch hunts prior to Feb 1st of the year of the hunt. Final payment with tax is due in full 30 days prior to the start of the hunt. Booking now will hold the current hunt price. I do anticipate going up by next Show season.

 

The hunt will consist of 5 days of fully guided elk hunting. As outlined above Hunters will fly into Missoula MT and we can pick them up there ($200 fee covers round trip due in cash at pick up) and transport them to camp. If you choose to fly to Spokane you can rent a vehicle and drive to camp. The hunt includes all food lodging and transportation once hunters arrive in camp until they depart.

 

Deer only hunts are available for $2500 plus tax and tags.  Deer hunting has a very limited book and a huge success rate. For details, please contact Inga by phone or e-mail.

 

Over the years we have specialized in Elk & Deer, Lion and Bear hunting and have many references. We generally hunt from pack-in camps but the hunting can be just as good from our remote base camp. Depending on which camp you choose, we have cabins or wall tents for housing. Both have wood heat with comfortable cots and foams. You will need sleeping bags, full camo in layers with a waterproof outer layer. The prices outlined above include all food lodging pick-up and return to Missoula as well as full guide service (please note full guide service does not necessarily mean your guide is with you at all times, please ask if you do not understand any information here) and caping of critters. Things not included in the price are, Gratuity for guides and cooks, 2 nights stay in Missoula (if flying with pick up), meat processing and taxidermy or shipping or hides or meat.

 

Availability is limited. Of course, we are in contact with prospective clients daily. Hunts are reserved with a phone call or e-mail and then held for 10 days until initial deposit is received at which time the space is confirmed.

 

If you have any pricing questions or would like to build a more specific hunt package let us know.  The following are some references (we have Many more just ask) for our outfits from the last few years.  Thanks again for your interest!
