Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I book a harvest?
Call our ranch manager, Chad Ebert, at 208-818-6081. He is often working in the field and not immediately available, but you can leave a message anytime. You may also email us at email@example.com including your preferred contact information, and we'll get back to you.
How do I get to the ranch?
The Coeur d'Alene Wapiti Ranch is located 12 miles south of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho on the Northeast corner of US Highway 95 and Rockford Bay Road. The entrance is located on the northbound lanes of Hwy 95 just north of the intersection. If you are arriving from Coeur d'Alene on Highway 95, you will have to go to Rockford Bay Road, turn around to go north on Highway 95 and then turn into the driveway on the right (east) side.
Will I get the whole animal, including the hide?
Yes, with a slight exception. We are required to take a small brain sample for testing. This is done on every animal that is harvested to certify that our animals are free of disease. Everything else may be taken by the client.
Will I have to gut and skin the animal myself?
Many of our clients do this themselves. We can also make arrangements for someone to gut/skin/quarter the animal for you for an additional fee ($300/cow and $400/bull). We do assist you in removing the animal from the field and in loading for no additional charge.
Are there places to stay in the area?
Because Coeur d'Alene is a popular recreation destination there are many accommodations available in a variety of price ranges. They include hotels, motels, campgrounds and RV parks.
