Big Game Hunting in the Rocky Mountains

The Salmon, Idaho area offers some of the finest big game hunting in the Rocky Mountains. The Salmon-Challis National Forest and Frank Church Wilderness Area offers hunters the opportunity to pursue trophy elk, mule deer, antelope, bear, big horn sheep, mountain goat, mountain lion, and moose. Combine your trip with steelhead fishing and upland bird game including wild turkey, grouse, and chuckar hunting.

Salmon Idaho #2 Best Hunting and Fishing Towns in the US

The 35 Best Hunting and Fishing Towns in the US
“This town’s name should be your first clue as to why it attracts sportsmen the way a spawning run draws bears. Located right on the Salmon River—and bordering millions of acres of public hunting ground, including the largest wilderness area in the Lower 48 (the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness)—Salmon has, well, everything. The Salmon and its tributaries offer world-class fishing for trout, steelhead, and other species year-round. On the crags and benches above the Salmon and other nearby rivers, wingshooters chase chukar and huns, while at higher elevations blue and spruce grouse predominate. The big-game scene has changed in Salmon with the resurgence of wolves. But trophy elk, mule deer, and whitetails are still accessible, and the hunting for bears and mountain lions is second to none.” Read More 35 Best Hunting and Fishing Towns in the US.
