Elk Hunting with Rawhide Outfitters and Donna McGee

Idaho Elk Hunts

A bull elk bugle echoes through the high country on a cool September morning. A camo clad archer waits excitedly as a herd bull pushes his cows in for a drink from a high mountain spring. Elk hunting has always been a passion and a main event for us here at Rawhide Outfitters. Our guides, all with a lifetime of experience, have the knowledge, techniques and love of the hunt to ensure a fun and memorable hunt.

We’ve specialized in archery and rifle permit elk hunts in units 29 and 37-A since we began outfitting in 1989. We enjoyed high success rates in these units. Since then we’ve added elk hunts in units 28, 36 and 36-B.

At Rawhide Outfitters our main priority has always been quality over quantity of hunts, being very careful to never over hunt an area. We very seldom have over three elk hunters in a camp at a time.

“The One That Got Away!

One-on-One Guided Elk Hunts

Our one-on-one guided elk hunts last six days. We pack in to our mountain camps using an experienced pack string of horses. We provide all the accommodations and equipment needed for a comfortable stay at our pre-established camps in wall tents. Our full time camp cook prepares hearty, plentiful meals specializing in Dutch oven cooking, making this a highlight of the hunting camp experience. Our clients have become our friends as most of them have returned to hunt with us year after year since we have started.

If a small family run business that strives for quality and pays great attention to detail sounds right for you, please contact us.

Combination Elk / Mule Deer Hunt

“I have elk hunted both archery and rifle with Rawhide Outfitters nine times and the Cranney’s continue to amaze me with the quality of their service. John, Cathy, Justin and Luke’s attention to detail and hard work will make a hunt in the wilderness of Idaho an experience to be remembered forever. The only downside is finding enough time to go again. Simply put, I would not elk hunt with any other outfitter…” Duane Brown
