Shepp Ranch is a bonded and Insured Idaho Outfitter with over fifty years of experience. We hunt in central Idaho’s Gospel Hump Wilderness. This country is steep and rugged, with nearly a dozen mountain peaks ranging from 6,700 to 8,300 feet, making it ideal habitat for big game.

During our three night stay, we ate fabulous food, fished, hiked, splashed in the water, played with the dogs, read, napped, soaked in the beauty of our surroundings, re-connected with dear friends, made new friends and finally, slept peacefully to the sounds of the Salmon River & Crooked Creek.
