We were about 125 miles east of McCAll right on the edge of the Frank Church Wilderness. Great country and had a great time for sure.

We drove to McCAll and then

We drove to McCAll and then few in to a remote grass air strip which was pretty cool. None of the roads in the area were open yet so there is no other way in unless you want to walk or ride a horse about 125 miles. The outfitter had to chase the elk off the air field so we could land. We also had to chase them off to take off.

 We use a wide variety of bear hunting techniques including baits with either tree stand or ground blinds and the exciting hound hunt. The bear in our area come in a wide variety of color phases ranging from blond to black. The majority of our bear hunters prefer the spring hunt, but we do take a limited number of hunters during the fall.  Fall hunts can also be combined with Elk and Deer.  The bear population is high and trophy quality excellent.

Sawtooth Wilderness Outfitters has the exclusive commercial hunting rights for an area of over 700 square miles for Bear hunting in central Idaho.  We are avid outdoorsmen and have grown up hunting and trapping all types of animals.

Spring hunts are conducted from a drive in base camp.  Camps consist of camp trailers, wall tent, out house, and portable shower.  This enables us to be mobile and utilize the entire area as the snow melts.
