Valley Ranch Outfitters offers drop camps and fully guided hunts in Idaho Unit #36 as licensed by the State of Idaho and under special use permit, by the Sawtooth National Forest.
We hunt the foothills, of the White Cloud Mountain Range, at elevations ranging from 7,000 ft. to over 9,000 ft. This area is very rugged with open, sagebrush covered, south facing slopes and timbered draws. This provides a good balance of open feeding area and escape cover.
We have a healthy and stable elk herd, producing mature bulls and a good success rate.
We hunt from comfortable back-country tent camps, reached by horseback. Our hunts are set up on an 8 day schedule, with 6 days of actual hunting.
Early booking is important, as the season is short and we take a limited number of hunters. Non-resident elk and deer tags are also limited in number. We can assist you in obtaining these tags through the Idaho outfitters set-aside program.
