Adventure-Filled Elk Hunting Trips

Elk hunts, archery in particular, are our specialty at Juniper Mountain Outfitters. The Idaho Legislature sets aside 2,400 elk tags annually for the exclusive use of our outfitters, and this means that you are guaranteed your elk tag in the spring if you book with us.


Our elk hunting trips are available on a first come, first serve basis with most of our hunting done in South/Central Idaho. We operate in Fish & Game units 25 & 33.  The major drainages of these units are the South Fork of the Salmon, Johnson Creek and the Middle Fork of the Payette River. We also offer controlled hunts in units 40 and 42 for Elk in Southwestern Idaho.


While conducting our summer horse camps, it allows us to watch the elk move across the mountain.  This ensures more accurate locating during your hunt. During the hunting season, we set up spike camps throughout the area to improve your success. We set up 12’ x 14’ tents right in the drainage areas that typically hold elk, so that we don’t have to ride horseback out to the same location every day.


These spike camps are equipped to hold 2 hunters/1 guide. Most hunting is done on foot, and it is common for a hunter to get a shot within ¼ mile of the camp. You will be limited to one standard duffle bag weighing no more than 70 pounds. Your sleeping bag can be packed separately.
