The Salmon-Challis National Forest offers many types of hunting opportunities for hunters of all ages and experience levels. Each year visitors enjoy hunting high in the mountains in thick lodge pine stands, in open grassland canyon benches and in sagebrush valleys.

Check with the state managers for the  Idaho Department of Fish and Game for area hunting regulations.

Each year, the thrill of big game hunting draws hunters from across the country to the Salmon-Challis National Forest. This forest's habitat supports one of the largest herds of Rocky Mountain elk found on any National Forest in the nation. Other big-game species who make this forest their home include mule deer, white-tailed deer, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, black bear, and mountain lion. Game bird species that are hunted include turkey, blue grouse, spruce grouse, chukar partridge, gray (Hungarian) partridge and mountain quail.
