This hunting and fishing trip takes place in Hells Canyon on the Snake River. Hunt for wild chukar for 4-6 days.
Hunting from a raft offers many advantages especially in Hells Canyon. With hunting trails on both sides of the river, hunters and their dogs can be dropped off on the river bank and hunt freely until they meet the boat downriver. This takes all the work out of back tracking and wasting precious hunting time hiking around. Rafts are also incredibly quiet, which provides a huge advantage scouting where the birds are located and not alerting the birds of your arrival. If you enjoy exciting upland bird hunting, nothing beats Chukar hunting on the Wild and Scenic Snake River in Idaho.
The fishing is also amazing this time of year. The Trout and Bass are big after a summer of feeding, Steelhead and Salmon are running and of course Hells Canyon’s world-famous sturgeon lurk in the bottom of the river.
Our hunting and fishing trips run from middle of September through November and bringing your own dog is encouraged. A valid Oregon/Idaho state hunting license and Upland Game Bird Stamp is required. Trip prices do not include state hunting license, Upland Game Bird Stamp.
