"This was quite a trip. It was a rugged and physically challenging experience, in country that was even more beautiful than normal as the leaves had begun to change. I've done a fair amount of hunting and, therefore, have a yardstick by which to measure the organization and professionalism associated with any particular hunt. You should know that the crew represents you incredibly well. They are organized and hardworking, yet retain a great sense of humor and are very enjoyable to be around. Their knowledge of the area and its wildlife is really impressive. More importantly, the ethical standards that they employ in their guiding and their sense of strong stewardship for the land on which we camped and hunted are first rate. Even if our results had not been so good (which they absolutely were!), I could not be more complimentary of their efforts and the credit that they bring to The Middle Fork Lodge."
Big Horn Sheep & Rocky Mountain Goat Hunts
We have been providing the expertise necessary to hunt Sheep and Goat since 1963. The characteristics of these animals combined with the topography of their habitat provide the optimum challenge to those hardy souls interested in their pursuit. Due to our experience and in depth knowledge of the area, we have enjoyed a success very near 100 percent. These are “bragging rights” that do not come easily. We spend many days scouting and preparing for your hunt long before your arrival.
We utilize horses and mules to access the sheep and goat country, and then continue our hunts from roving camps with backpacks. Our day is spent glassing the slopes and moving until a trophy class Ram or Billy is spotted. This is a 10-day hunt including everything except your sleeping bag and personal items.
All sheep and goat permits in Idaho are on a lottery basis. Applications must be sent to the Idaho Fish and Game Department no later than April 30. All applicants are notified of the results by June 10. We are happy to assist you with the procedures and recommended units.
