The Lower Salmon River and Lower Hells Canyon see a healthy population of Chukar in the fall. These birds are native to Eastern Europe and the Himalayas, and are at home in rocky terrain with scattered grassy hillsides. They have a unique clucking sound, which is easily identifiable and will become the signal to head for the riverbank! When they were introduced to Idaho, Chukar quickly became bird hunters’ game of choice – a challenge to shoot and delicious to eat. The terrain and landscape on our trips is ideal habitat for these birds.
The Chukar hunting season coincides perfectly with fall steelhead and bass fishing. This trip is the ultimate outdoorsman’s experience – slaying fish and shooting birds… What more could you ask for? Cast and blast to your heart’s content.
In order to access the best hunting grounds, some scrambling and trekking over rough terrain is required. This can be a strenuous trip, so we ask that hunters are in good physical condition.
All of our hunting and fishing trips are fully catered expeditions, with more than comfortable camping accommodations and plenty of freshly made, gourmet meals.
Four-day (three nights) and five-day (four nights) trips are available.
