Spring Cove Outfitters LLC is owned and operated by the Daniel Butler family; Daniel, Diana, David, Dale, and Demsie. In 2008, we applied for, and were chosen by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, the BLM, and Idaho Outfitters and Guides Licensing Board to start an outfitting business for deer and elk hunting in Idaho's famed Unit 45. 2009 was our first hunting season.
Spring Cove Ranch offers many unique opportunities. It is a winter range for deer elk and antelope, and supports its own resident population as well. For bird watchers, a 50 bird day is possible, and a 50 bird weekend probable. Waterfowl are here in abundance, and Sandhill Cranes number close to 1,000 from mid-February until mid-April. We have a stocked trout pond and one of the best bass ponds in Idaho. Our family has spent a great deal of time hunting and recreating in unit 45. We know it and we love it.
We are in the process of expanding our Outfitter business to include bear and antelope hunting as well as trail riding and fishing.
