Guided Chukar Hunting Overview

Not many adventures compare to a river trip in the fall. The solitude and mild weather is seldom matched by the other seasons. Waking up by the river, you find the mornings crisp and clean. Indulging in an afternoon hike with a friend and his dog, you find the sun has lost its intense summer burn and given way to a lazy autumn warmth. Resting on a convenient basalt bench you seat yourselves with a backdrop of cheat grass slopes and instinctively speak in church whispers scarcely more audible than the gentle murmur of the river below. You close your eyes and come within one deep breath of ultimate peace. But then you hear a chuckle from the rimrock above. Then another to your left and your right and you realize they're not just laughing; those devils are laughing at you. There's only one clear thing to do: grab your guns and dog and start chasing. That's right, it's chukar season and there's no better place in the world to be than the rugged river canyons of eastern Oregon and western Idaho.

Customer Stories


A hunting trip of a lifetime - my Cast and Blast trip down Hells Canyon for the opening of the Oregon Chukar season was an epic experience that blew all of my expectations away! From the stunning scenery to enjoying the thrills of the white water rapids, this 5-day trip ticked so many boxes, plus so much more!  We were treated to seeing lots of wildlife, with fantastic river fishing and unforgettable hunting adventures! But what really made this trip special was the team from the Minam Store - the guides hunting knowledge, history of the area and their outstanding customer service was unbeatable along with the hospitality that was provided for us all back at the comfortable campsite, where delicious food and campsite conversation filled the evenings.A fantastic once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing trip - for anyone who loves the outdoors and wants a digital detox, I would highly recommend it and can't wait to come back again!
