Mule Deer Hunts

Hunt the rut

Trophy Idaho deer hunts in the Selway Wilderness

It’s late season and the bucks are in the rut. Idaho deer hunts in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness offer incredible opportunities to get your trophy buck. During this fall hunt, the biggest deer are typically nocturnal, but they abandon their usual patterns to spend most of the day scenting and tracking does.  They don’t spend much time in one place and with their constant movement spotting and stocking becomes much easier. 

If you’ve grown tired of trying to draw in a trophy area, then is the hunt for you.  Tags are over the counter, no drawing,  ,no lottery, no hassles but they do sell out, so book early!

Idaho deer hunts are not for everyone. We hunt in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, Idaho’s Hunting Unit 17.  This is extremely rugged country and you need to be in good shape.  Weather this time of year is often demanding, but for those that like a challenge, you will enjoy spectacular country and a chance to take a once in a life time buck.

To offset the tough country we have some of the most comfortable camps in the back country, and food that is phenomenal.  

We provide experienced mountain horses and mules and the best guides in the business.  You bring your license, hunting and personal gear and your spirit of adventure and our crew will take care of the rest.
