Our hunting outfitters also guides specialty hunts for moose, mountain goat and bighorn sheep. These once in a lifetime hunts are special hunts that we can help you with this exciting hunt right from the beginning application process.
We are a family owned and operated Idaho hunting outfitters business and it is just not our nature to brag, however, we feel if you are planning to book a hunting trip, the more informed you are about the various outfitters in Idaho the better!
Mountain Lion hunting in Idaho with Rawhide Outfitters runs November through the end of March. There is still time to plan for these exciting mountain lion hunts. Our 2010 – 2011 mountain lion hunting season produced a 100% success rate for our hunters harvesting many “book” cats. Plan to hunt with state-of-the-art mountain lion hunting equipment including 4×4 trucks, ATV’s, snowmobiles with super fast loading and unloading system to save valuable time. Our high hunting success rate is due in part to the pre-scouting for mountain lions prior to all hunts as our hunting area is prime wintering ground for these mountain lions.

Elk Hunting in Idaho with Rawhide Outfitters runs August through November. These Idaho elk hunts fill up fast due in part to our yearly high success rate of 90% or better. We welcome our hunters who return year after year for their annual archery elk hunts and rifle elk hunts. Our main priority has always been quality over quantity of hunts, being very careful to never over hunt an area. We very seldom have over three elk hunters in a camp at a time to ensure our hunters have a fun and memorable hunt with our hunting guides who have a lifetime of experience to share with you!

Bear Hunting in Idaho with our hunting guides runs April through June. With over 600 square miles and bordering the Frank Church Wilderness from Challis to Salmon, Idaho, this bear hunting area provides a huge opportunity to hunt many canyons that seldom get hunted, and has produced a very good supply of bear since we started outfitting in 1989. Choose from a drive in hunting camp or two different pack in horse camps. Due to the elevation and genetics, plan to harvest a high quality bear, with heavy nap and multi color ranging from black to cinnamon to blonde bears with a lot of white chest markings. Whether you prefer archery hunts or rifle hunts our Idaho bear hunts offer lots of options including glass & stalk, bush bust & exciting hound hunting, hunting over baits or combination of all methods ensuring a memorable hunting vacation.
