Trophy Idaho Elk Hunts

Trophy Idaho Elk Hunts

Here at Ready Outfitters Elk hunting is our passion. We offer archery, wilderness and late season elk hunts. All of our guides have been hunting elk their whole lives and are skilled hunters and guides who love what they do. Our elk hunts are all fair chase hunts on public land in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness or the Clearwater National Forest. 


These 5 day archery elk hunts start at our drive-to Base Camp on the Clearwater National Forest and Selway Wilderness. Depending on where the elk are at the time you will either be hunting out of base camp each day or riding to one of our spike camps to get closer to the game. These hunts are fully guided 1x1 or 2x1 including all meals, lodging, and riding stock.


Our 7 day Wilderness Elk Hunts take place in Idaho's Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. These are early rifle during the rut opening day September 15th. You can use either a bow or rifle in this area.

These hunts are back-country and our camps are only accessed on horseback with pack mule strings.  You will ride anywhere from 3-7 hours into base camp. Depending on where the elk are you might ride to another spike camp to hunt out of a few nights. 


The late season elk hunts are 5 days and are on the Clearwater National Forest as well as the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness. These hunts are when we catch elk on the move. We will be hunting out of our all included drive-to base camp.
