Idaho Bighorn Sheep Hunting & Mountain Goat Hunts

Guided Bighorn Sheep Hunting in Scenic Idaho

Mile High Outfitters offers Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep hunts along the Middle Fork of the Salmon and Main Salmon Rivers in central Idaho. The sheep season opens August 30. Idaho's Rocky Mountain Bighorns are on a lottery draw. Applications are accepted the month of April. Hunters need to be in very good physical condition to hunt bighorn sheep. I drew my first Rocky Mountain Bighorn tag in 1987 when I was 18. Since that first hunt, I have guided dozens of hunters on Rocky Mountain Bighorns, California Bighorns and Dall sheep. Depending on the unit drawn, we use backpacks and the horses and mules. These hunts can be the most physical hunt Idaho has to offer. Do not even think about putting in for one of these tags if you are not willing to be in the best shape possible. These tags are once in a lifetime so you need to be willing to give it everything you’ve got. For more information on how to apply and what units we recommend, give us a call anytime at (208) 879-4500.

Guided Mountain Goat Hunts

Mountain goat hunting in Idaho with Mile High Outfitters probably represents the best of what Idaho and the Salmon River Mountains has to offer.  These majestic, white, throwbacks from the days of glacial ice ages inhabit rough, steep terrain.  We access this area with horses and mules but the final stock is on foot with backpacks.  Idaho's Mountain goat tags are on a lottery draw and are once in a lifetime.  Please give us a call if you are interested in applying for one of the lottery tags during the month of April.  Although the season opens August 30, we try to hunt goats after October 1 so they have time to hair up and although you are allowed to harvest a nanny, an old, mature billy is what we are looking for.
