I knew that my hunt would change in 30 seconds when we located a fresh Tom lion track on day 5 at 8am. Hounds were turned out and quickly the chase was on! I was impressed with the ability of the hounds to work a track that was hours old and rain had fallen on. Four and half hours of trekking through the beautiful Idaho mountains lead me to the tree where the hounds treed the beautiful 135# Tom Mountain Lion I dreamed of. Joe Wood and his team of guides and cook give you their all each day to make sure you have the best chance at success and an awesome Idaho experience.
Selway Ridgerunner Outfitters News and Highlights
We are located in the Selway-Bitteroot mountains of Idaho, 20 miles North of Elk City and 40 miles South East of Kooskia in the Nezperce National Forest and have 19 years experience hunting in this area. Selway Ridgerunners is here to provide you with a good time, great memories and a great hunting experience.
I’ve been a coon hunter all my life. It was a lifelong dream of mine to go on a cougar hunt with hounds. Joe packs 9 hammer down, stay-put tree dogs. My hunt was in the first part of February and there had not been new snow for a couple of weeks. We treed 2 bobcats and 3 lions in 4 days. I was amazed. We treed my. 130 pound to 140 pound Tom on the fourth day. Food was awesome and the hospitality was the best. Joe does everything possible for a successful hunt. Thank you Joe!
Growing up my old man always told me about the incredible memories he had chasing bugling bulls in Idaho’s selway region. Naturally when we were deciding on an elk hunt, Idaho was the only choice we wanted. Hunting with Joe, John, and jack was one of the best experiences of my life. The camp impecable from running hot water, excellent sleeping arrangements, and amazing attention to detail all around. The greatest part however was how by the end of the trip our guides had become friends.
I recommend anyone looking for a great Rocky Mountain experience to use this outfit. I promise you will not regret it.
everything went perfectly, beautiful point, beautiful morning, at first light we called in this bugling bull together. joe and his family are great people and real woodsmen.
Welcome to the new website for Selway Ridgerunners Outfitter.
Selway Ridgerunners Outfitter is an Idaho outfitting and guide service with permit in the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness within the Nezperce Clearwater National Forest.
Selway Ridgerunners Outfitter is owned and operated by John Crawford of Washington, and Joe and Kim Wood of Grangeville, Idaho.
Joe has cut his teeth in the backcountry of Idaho and so his experience guiding hunts in the Idaho Mountains is inherent in every fiber of his being. Joe understands what it takes to make a good hunt. He is very customer oriented and has a passion for giving his hunters the experience of a lifetime with cherished memories.
I received a call last fall from Joe’s wife Kim, asking about a website for their business. We chatted about the ins and outs and what would be needed to get a website launched. Joe and Kim hunkered down through the Christmas holidays to prepare the pages of information needed as well as scanning in photos and getting everything organized.
NEW WEBSITE LAUNCHED IN FEBRUARY 2016
The resulting website was launched in late February and offers hunters seeking a big game or predator hunt the opportunity to check out info, pricing, and photos of successful hunts. You’ll find that Selway Ridgerunners Outfitter offers Elk, Whitetail Deer, Bear, Cougar and Wolf hunts.
HUNTERS BRAG BOARD
We’ve added a brag board offering clients a chance to submit a few details and the exciting moments of their hunt with Selway Ridgerunner Outfitters, in addition to uploading a photo to go along with comments. Brag board postings will be delivered to this WordPress website as a draft, where Kim Wood, who is the designated web person, will review the information and make sure its formatted nicely – along with the photo – and publish to the website. This will gain traction as Selway Ridgerunner Outfitters move through 2016 and into the primary fall hunting season.
Be sure to check out the website at SelwayRidgeRunners.com and contact Joe and Kim Wood to arrange for an elk or whitetail deer hunt this fall 2016 in the beautiful Selway Bitterroot Wilderness.
