Mackay Bar Outfitters & Guest Ranch, perched at the edge of the Salmon River and Frank Church Wilderness, offers a special brand of Idaho backcountry hunting adventures!
The River of No Return (Salmon River) flows 75 miles through this remote location allowing access by jet boat and pack string to some of the most rugged and remote landscapes you’ll ever see.
Your hunt will be unforgettable whether you leave right from the ranch on foot, launch on a jet boat or take horses out of one of our remote hunting camps. Due to the remoteness of the area, our guides are held to a high standard for safety and experience in the wilderness. As the owner and outfitter, I assure my guides are respectful, hard working, honest men.
Most of all, our guides are hunting machines.
