Northern Idaho offers excellent whitetail deer hunting and has a history of consistently producing trophy whitetails. With a long hunting season that begins with archery in late August and concludes with rifle hunting by early December, there are ample opportunities to take home the whitetail buck of your dreams. The hunting techniques employed are dictated heavily by the weather and the progression of the rut, with the rut peaking in mid to late November.
On the other hand, mule deer hunting in our area can be quite challenging. Although Northern Idaho is not typically considered a trophy hunting area, there are some nice mule deer here. These trophy animals live in the remote and rugged terrain of our area. Mule deer hunts are primarily spot and stalk and can be physically challenging.
