Hi, my name is Steve Zettel and I first began working for Taylor Ranch Outfitters in 1982, which was my third season of guiding. 10 years later I bought the outfit along with a Middle Fork float business.

We were known as Taylor Ranch Outfitters in camp and American Adrenaline Company on the river. In the year 2000 we became Idaho Wilderness Company for everything. We added territory twice to Taylor Ranch Outfitters making it possibly the greatest place to hunt elk, mule deer, and big horn sheep. We also had over 15 miles of Big Creek (probably Idaho`s best cutthroat fishery) to fish.

In 2002 we sold what was Taylor Ranch Outfitters . The sale went bad and we got it back. In 2006, we sold again an unfortunately we had the same result. We got what was Taylor Ranch Outfitters back again in the spring of 2009.

In the meantime we bought another adjacent hunting area on and around Monumental Creek (also on Big Creek). Both operations are now part of Idaho Wilderness Company. This now gives over 280 square miles to hunt.

Our goal is to re-build our reputation and client base to our 2000 levels. It is still a magnificent territory and awaits your return.
