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.

I have hunted with Amon and Shattuck Creek Outfitters twice and both times I have gotten a bear. If you are a true hunter who enjoys learning about bear hunting this is the hunt for you. Amon and his team are top notch hunting professionals. They work diligently to give everyone an equal opportunity to harvest a bear. The Elk River area is one of the most if not the most beautiful place I have ever hunted. I am hunting with Amon in September 2023 for Elk. I am sure it will be another awesome adventure. C. Brown

As an avid archery hunter it is even more important to work with an outfitter who is willing and able to go above and beyond. Amon and his guides have always understood the challenges of getting close to game. The extra effort is always on full display when I am at Shattuck Creek. Successful archery elk and archery cougar hunts have provided lasting memories/mounts but are not outdone by the experiences and friendships formed. Constantly planning my next opportunity to get back out in the mountains of Idaho with the first rate people at Shattuck Creek Outfitters.

Just got back from a 7 day Elk rifle hunt with Amon.. On our first day my partner Mark L got a nice 5 by 5 Bull. Another fellow from Vermont scored on a spike bull. Amon was my guide for the entire week and since I’m handicapped he went out of his way to help me get into a blind and back to the lodge safely. I did not see any elk until my last day we saw several cows over 500 yds away. During my week with Amon I rode side by sides, 4 wheelers to my hunting grounds saw many white tail deer, watched full scale logging operations and some beautiful mountain scenery of Idaho. The home cooked meals back at the lodge I cannot say enough about. Just awesome!!! Overall we had a great week. Amon and family are gracious host provided very comfortable accommodations. We look forward to returning to…

I just got back from a great week with Amon and his team on a two-bear remote wilderness hunt. Amon and his crew worked really hard to make sure we were comfortable, well fed and taken care of, and had opportunities to get a bear. I was fortunate enough to take a bear, but not everyone did. Nobody complained and all saw bears. We were in a beautiful location where few get to go, with a warm fire and hot coffee always available. Deer, elk, goat, and moose where seen in addition to the bear, and wolves could be heard at night. I can’t recommend Shattuck Creek Outfitters highly enough and will hunt with them again God willing.

I have been bow hunting for many year and my main goal is to just get a change. I hunted elk with Amon the 2017 fall season the weather was changing and the elk were starting to answer our calls. On day four we had two encounters both at one point less than 25 yards the second I was able to get a clean shot at 50 yards a nice 5×5. Amon knows what he’s doing and if you are in shape and willing to put in the time to practice you will probably have the same opportunity I did or better. By the way he has horses to pack the elk out and the food was great.

My good friend Jerry booked a 2-bear hunt for our hunting group this spring with Shattuck Creek Outfitters. Jerry and I are both in the U.S. Army and decided that a Spring Black Bear hunt in Northern Idaho would be a nice way to enjoy some vacation time. We didn’t know what to expect, but we were confident that Amon and his guides at Shattuck Creek are the best in Idaho. We were right!! Each member of our hunting party bagged a bear. Two of us harvested two bears. I took both my bears on the same day! One was treed by Amon’s hard-working and well-trained dogs and the other mature boar came into bait. Shattuck Creek Outfitters kill bears! Many color phased bears were harvested, and everyone was thrilled at the bears they took. The hospitality that Amon, his wife Barbara, and their 9 children showed us was so gracious. Barbara’s amazing dinner was…

I was fortunate enough to draw an OIL tag in Idaho and Amon did all he could to make it successful. Honest and upfront from the start, fun to hunt with and great guides, Great outfit and look forward to going back!

I had not hunted for over 30 years. Last year, now that I’m retired, I decided to give it a try and went for a high fence elk hunt on a ranch north of Rexburg by the sand dunes. I didn’t know if, physically I could handle it. We drove all over a 12000 acre ranch looking fort he elk I wanted, which was in the 230-240 class. There were only a couple and I got one of them, about 75 yards away. This at least gave myself a start. Just a few weeks ago I went pig hunting with a friend of mine, an avid hunter, who hired on as a guide that has pigs and deer. The last of the 3 day hunt we found one, about 170 lbs and moved up to about 75 yards. One shot and we are enjoying sausage. We used an ATV a lot and did hike and…
