Your adventure in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area will begin at the Shearer Airstrip. This remote location includes dense forest as well as open areas. We will meet you as you land at the airstrip in the morning, load up your gear and start towards camp, lunch will be served on the trail, dinner will be provided at your camp. We have three drop camp sites. Depending upon what you are hunting for your ride will be anywhere from 3 to 12 miles. Once there, we will go over maps and have a thorough orientation of the area and camp.

Once your trophy is on the ground, you are responsible for field dressing and caping the animal and getting the quarters to a location we can get the pack mules to. Our packers will take the meat and pack it back to base camp where it will be hung and ready for you when we pack you out.

We have Guaranteed Outfitter Tags. No drawing, no lottery, no hassles. Pricing varies upon services provided. Typical drop camps include 1-4 people, exceptions can be made. The starting cost for a drop camp is $3000. Please call 208-400-0852 to get a quote/details.
