Mike & Dawn Richie, Idaho Wilderness Outfitters
Mike and Dawn offer the highest quality hunts for deer, elk, bear, lion and moose in the remote wilderness of Idaho and Montana.
Mike Richie is a second-generation Idaho outfitter who grew up in Unit 17 in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. Mike is one of the only outfitters who has stood by his belief of letting the smaller animals grow so you can have a trophy to take home. He has run all of his camps by this rule for over 10 years. There are other outfitters trying to do this now, but they have already taken the small bulls, and do not have much left to choose from
The Selway is famous for turning out genetically superior game, and with the Richie’s commitment towards good management, they offer a prime hunting area. The Richie’s have a reputation for their good stock and the care they give them, their comfortable camps and the best camp gear, quality hunts, good food, good service and a lot of fun.
We received this from a friend of Connie's
A note of thanks as I reflect this morning. Thank you for your passion for the wilderness. Thank you for the care and concern you show for those who share your love. Thank you for taking Connie into camp. There was nowhere she would have rather been. She recognized your love and care for the land, the animals both wild and working and she had great respect for that. Thank you for the love you hold for the forest and the Sellway in particular. The kinship in those things runs deep and I too know the sadness you feel at the loss of our sister and Ace. My dad and mom adopted Connie some 25+ years ago when she came to Idaho from Iowa. As long time hosts at the ranger station dads photos and stories of his time in the back country fueled Connie's imagination and passion to find it's peace and discover it's serenity. She truly became a student of it's majesty and allure. So many people benefitted from her dedication to it's sanctity including my children who she took under her wing as she so easily did so many and took a lifelong interest in them. She became my sister and I am always grateful to see her face, share in her laughter and hear her latest story of some projects she was working on or her latest antic with her beloved mules who were her best friends. I take great solace now knowing that she is exactly where she would want and choose to be and have no doubt whatsoever that she enjoyed the awe and wonder and magnificence and surprise that the forest and it's surrounding sanctity filled her with even in her final hours. I thank the Universal Wisdom that made our paths cross. She was a gift to us all. I'll see her in the clear waters of the river, hear her laughter in the wind among the forest trees,. See her footsteps in the dust of the trail and hold her in my heart each time I stroke the warm softness of a horse's or mules nose. I am grateful for having her touch my heart as I'm sure she touched yours. Though we've not met, I wish you peace, my friends. Know you are appreciated in ways you don't even know. I'm grateful for your spirit and for the love and passion you possess. We have been blessed by knowing this special lady. She'd want you to carry on and all's as it is supposed to be. Peace be with you and rest from your weary travels!! In gratitude.... thank you! ... See MoreSee Less

With permission from Chris Adkins, pictured here with Connie, we would like to share with everyone just one little"snapshot" moment of Connie and her dear friend Chris, sitting for a moment together during one of the many times together in the SeLway-Biiterroot Wilderness. We have been contacted by many people over the course of the last several days that have shared with us their stories and memories of the special times they have spent with Connie in the Selway. Everyone that knows Connie, knows how very much she loves being in the Selway or any other back country paradise. It is her second home, if not her first, that she loves so very much.
Just thought we would share a little ray of sunshine for us all to hang on to.
Thanks Chris for letting us share.
This is what accompanied this picture of Connie and Chris:

Mike and Dawn Richie my thoughts and prayers are with you. I recently lost a close friend and commercial fishing mate at sea. He was missing for almost a week before they found out what happened to Kevin. I know what you are going through. I know it's hell but don't give up hope. She may have taken a long jaunt and still be out there waiting to be rescued. If I could I would come help look for your friend. Love you guys!!1 week ago · 1
