Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, Idaho Outfitting and Guide Business for Sale-$350,000
This Outfitting and Guide business operates with a permit from the U.S. National Forest Service. This listing is for an Outfitting and Guide business and no land or real estate transfers with the sale.
This outfitting and guide business has been well run and has been profitable for decades. This second-generation family run business has been their primary lifestyle for many years. The outfit operates in approximately 250 square miles of the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness and the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest. Hunters, many of which are repeat loyal customers, are flown into the Moose Creek USFS Airport via charter flights and then are taken via horse back to one of several remote, yet comfortable, backcountry wilderness camps. Other access to the area is via a 27-30 mile pack trip. Clients enjoy first-rate backcountry gear, excellent food, amazing service and a lot of fun!
The guided hunting consists of Elk, Deer, Bear, Mountain Lion, and Wolf. These are remote, rugged, wilderness fair-chase hunts. This outfitter has self-implemented a six-point or better rule and 340+ bulls are a possibility. Tag allocation allows for guided hunts for deer and elk to occur during their rut. The excellent game population and low hunter numbers create an opportunity for trophy game.
The area boasts a great Mountain Lion population and this outfitter has guided numerous hunters to a Boon & Crocket cat. Bears are also in abundance and the Idaho Department of Fish & Game allow two bear tags per hunter in this area. With the abundance of bear there is also a variety of color phases. Bear can be hunted over bait, with dogs, or via spot and stalk.
The outfit has 700 permitted use days, four assigned camp sites, and 40 AUMs for grazing. The outfit is allocated 24 elk tags and 35 deer tags (mule deer or whitetail deer). Additional elk tags are available through Idaho’s capped tag program for both residents and non-residents and through the outfitter pool. Additional deer tags are available through the general season deer tag applications.
This outfit comes with all the required equipment needed to run the hunting camps and 17 head of livestock will transfer to a new owner who can and will care for the livestock. Sale of this business is subject to the National Forest use permits being vacated by the current owner and re-assigned to the new buyer.
