ABOUT JARBIDGE WILDERNESS GUIDE AND PACKING
The Prunty family settled in the Charleston Valley in the late 1870's. As the eagle files, Charleston sits only three miles west of the Jarbidge Wilderness. The Pruntys started outfitting fishermen and hunters in the 1940's. With four generations of outfitting and guiding in the same area, we take much pride in the service we provide our hunters and the country in which we operate. Master Guide, Lowell Prunty, started guiding hunters in his early teens, and his knowledge of the Jarbidge Wilderness is unmatched. Our base of operations is located at Murphy's Hot Springs, Idaho, two miles north of the Nevada state line and 16 miles North of the Jarbidge Wilderness boundary. All of our services are conducted in Nevada, which is sometimes confused with our Idaho address.
ABOUT THE COUNTRY
The Jarbidge Wilderness is very steep and rugged. The Jarbidge consists of nine peaks over 10,500 feet. We hunt from elevations of 6,000 to 9,500 feet. The Jarbidge possesses a spectacular combination of heavily timbered areas, dense mahogany, big open sagebrush ridges, quaking aspen, 3,000 foot vertical canyons, and 500 foot rock formations. Historically the Jarbidge has been a best kept secret for producing quality mule deer. With its limited access and traffic, the Jarbidge will continue to not only be a beautiful place to hunt, but a place where you have a great opportunity to hunt trophy animals. Elk were re-introduced to Jarbidge in 1990 and we started hunting elk in 1994.
