Elk Hunting at Silver Spur Lodge in Dixie, Idaho!

Hunting elk is a favorite sport among many hunters. One reason elk hunting is so popular is due to the quality of elk meat. Another reason is that elk can be a very challenging game animal and provide a great deal of excitement. By looking at elk hunting pictures or watching elk hunting videos you’ll see the joy in the faces of the hunters featured in them. It’s important that you follow all elk hunting regulations for the state that you are hunting elk in. Failure to follow those regulations can result in loss of equipment, large fines and even imprisonment.

Choosing the right state for elk hunting can be a difficult task. Idaho should be on every hunter’s option list for their next possible elk hunt.  No matter what state you choose to hunt elk, you will need to follow local laws and regulations. In the great state of Idaho to legally hunt elk you must purchase a hunting license and along with you also need a special tag. Idaho also has specific date ranges that hunters are allowed to hunt elk and they are managed by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. The revenue from the purchase of hunting licenses and elk tags helps fund Idaho’s elk population management and conservation programs.
