My dad and I were lucky enough to book a last minute hunt with Shattuck Creek Outfitters. We’ve used outfitters before in the past, but Amon and his crew are by far my favorite. Luke was our guide. My dad has a bad knee right now and Luke knew exactly how hard to push and when not to. Luke didn’t have his work cut out for him, but he still got us into elk daily. The accommodations are great (ladies, you’ll be fine!), the food is great, the hunting is awesome, and the people are phenomenal. Highly recommend!
Group of 5 got there the first week of the season and we all filled tags. I was able to fill my second tag on our last night. Accommodations were excellent, food was great, and the staff went the extra mile. Have recommended this group to several people already.
I just completed a 5 day spring bear hunt with Amon and his amazing crew of guides. Every one of his guides was focused on getting all the hunters in stands that would offer us the best possibility of harvesting an animal. I personally did not run with the dog hunts but his dogs have been well trained and were very successful for the hunters that chose that option. The scenery in the elk river area is absolutely amazing! I was lucky enough to harvest a bear on the 3rd day of my hunt. They treated every hunter like a life long friend and the cooking was awesome! I highly recommend this crew to anyone. I hope to get back out with them very soon.

My dad and I were fortunate enough to get to spend a week with this fantastic family. Coming into a Mountain Lion hunt I came in wanting to learn as much as possible about the guides and the Mountain Lion species. The guides treated us like family and were great to hang out with during the hunt. Through the 5 days we rode over 300 miles by sled and looked at many tracks. With the main focus of mine for my dad to come away with a lion we got his on the ground after the dogs did great work on a frozen track on day 3. With only 1.5 days left to hunt the focus turned to finding a cat worth of an arrow for myself and that they did on day 5 we let the dogs loose and I was fortunate enough to send a well placed shot. I would strongly recommend Shattuck…

I really like hunting with Shattuck Creek Outfitters. Amon (and Luke) really do their best to try and get you an animal. And they aren’t afraid to hunt in the rain. The accommodations and food are great. Mostly we hunted clear cuts in the woods. I got a mule deer of a lifetime in 2016; it was a long shot across a valley (I was lucky) but it all worked out. Hoping someday to get back there and do it again. If you’re looking for a real hunt, I would recommend Shattuck Creek Outfitters.

This was my first elk camp experience and it could have not been better. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the logging roads in the area and always put us in a good spot. We were several days into the season so the elk were in hiding mode. However, I learned a lot about elk hunting techniques in ID. The camp accommodations were excellent. We enjoyed a new cabin with a most comfortable bed. Breakfast and dinner were like going to Grandma’s home cooking. Lunch fixing were also provided at the end of breakfast. It was 6 degrees when we arrived but our welcome was warm. This was my husband’s third time at Shattuck Creek Outfitters so he knew Amon & Barbara we’ll. I am 67 years old, and I hope to hunt here again; we will just come earlier in the season to increase our chances. I will always hold my Shattuck Creek experience…

We were looking for the whole adventure when we booked the hunt. Well, it was truly the adventure we were looking for at Shattuck Creek Outfitters.. Had an unbelievable time! Slept at outpost camp, rode horses, quads, ate amazing meals, and the scenery was awesome. Saw or heard elk almost everyday and even shot a huge trophy 6×6! Unfortunately, seems like I got only 1 lung and was unable to find the animal after endless searching of Amon and his son. This was a great hunt and experience! Highly recommend Shattuck Creek Outfitters with Amon and his staff. You will have a great time! I will be going back to close the deal on that archery elk at Shattuck Creek Outfitters. And oh ya, there are elk in Idaho…..

After 20 years of applying in my home state of Idaho I finally drew a shiras moose tag in the northern part of the state. Realizing that I would benefit greatly from having a guide, I began the search which rapidly pointed me to Shattuck Creek and Amon Molsee. I have had opportunities to hunt with many guiding services in the USA and world wide and thus have a lot to compare to. From the very beginning, Amon presented himself and his fellow guides as being totally committed to my quest for a once in a lifetime moose. I have never seen a group work so diligently as they did in helping me accomplish that goal. Also to Amon’s credit was his uncanny talent in calling in a large alpha male wolf that I had the privilege of harvesting. True icing on the cake! It became very obvious to me that Amon and Shattuck Creek…

5/5. Our party had never been elk-hunting before, so we didn’t really know what to expect. Despite some rough weather, we had a phenomenal time. The guides were all very friendly and highly knowledgeable, and we wound up leaving with two punched elk tags (including a 6×6 Bull) and a deer tag, and saw several moose and even a cougar. Would definitely recommend… but if we were to go back, we’d probably do more preparatory physical conditioning, since successful hunting in the area seems heavily predicated on being able to climb up and down some steep slopes at altitude. If you’ve got the money, it’s absolutely worth it. Great team, beautiful area, and the cook is top-notch.

I recently completed my second cougar hunt with Amon. We covered miles of beautiful wilderness that Amon has the hunting rights to. Given the hilly terrain and snow conditions, this was a challenging and physically demanding hunt. Without a doubt, Amon is one of the hardest working outfitters I have hunted with. He was prepared for whatever conditions we met and had a very comfortable remote camp set up for us. After getting my cougar, we returned to Amon’s home where we enjoyed delicious home cooked meals with his family. I would highly recommend Shattuck Creek Outfitters for any hunter who serious about going on a cougar hunt.
