Idaho Elk Hunts
Our season opens in mid-September during the middle of the elk rutting season, providing you with the opportunity to both hear the hair-raising sound of the mature elk bugle and the chance to harvest a trophy bull.
Mule Deer Hunts
With over 200 square miles of roadless area, our Idaho wilderness is abundant with deer. Our fall elk and deer hunts are done on horseback and on foot. The terrain is diverse with elevations ranging from 3,500 to 8,000 feet. The hunt is rugged.
Black Bear Hunts

ELk hunting and updates
Our Elk and Mule deer hunts are done from our remote back country camps. We ride horseback from Yellow Pine Idaho 2 to 6 hours depending on the camp you are hunting from. Our camps have 14 by 16 wall tents, wood stoves, cots with foams, lanterns, and plenty of fire wood! We generally leave camp horseback or on foot before daylight and spend the day glassing and locating game. After a hard days hunt there's nothing better than returning to a warm fire and a good meal! We also offer Lodge hunts out of Yellow Pine Idaho, Where lodging and meals are provided. We use Trucks and Trailers to haul the horses to different trail heads.

Buck Horn Outfitters is truly class act first rate professional outfitter. Tom is extremely knowledgeable of the back country and the habits of the elk and deer in those mountains. Sarah takes great care to make sure we had enough to eat. If one went hungry it was on them as Sarah always had more than enough food for us to eat. Phenomenal meals!
This was the best hunt I have ever been on. This hunt will push you to your extremes. You will be challenged physically and mentally. Being in shape is key. While no hunt is a guarantee, they will do everything to put you on an elk or deer. You will hunt long, you will hunt hard.
It was my pleasure getting to know Tom and Sarah. Truly remarkable friendly courteous people. The best test of an outfitter is if one will book with them again . Yes. Yes i would. I plan on booking another great hunt with them 2020.

My grandfather went hunting in Idaho in the 1940’s. I went with Tom and Sarah this past fall in memory of him and it was an awesome life experience. challenging , but so rewarding mentally and spiritually. To come home with a nice elk and bear was a plus as well. thanks buck horn outfitters for a great experience.
