Annual Trip Auction

Anyone searching for some breathtaking nature experiences, awe-inspiring vistas and views, and heart-pounding excitement will want to bid on the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation's 2007 Online Trip Auction.

This year, the foundation's trip auction features 22 outdoor experiences, from jet boating and river rafting to bird watching, wolf watching, sturgeon fishing and Snow-Peak Mountain backpacking.

Bidding starts at 8 a.m., March 11, and ends at 7 p.m. March 23. Full trip descriptions and step-by-step instructions are available at the link at the bottom of the page at

The 17th annual trip auction is the foundation's largest fundraiser with the money raised going to benefit Idaho's wildlife heritage. Proceeds from last year's auction helped hunter education programs and shooting ranges.

This event, co-sponsored by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, attracts hunters and anglers as well as hikers and wildlife watchers.

Here's just a taste of what is up for bid this year:

A backcountry trip takes you to see wild horses and wildlife of the Challis BLM Wild Horse Herd Management Area. The winner will spend the day viewing wild horses, elk, antelope, golden eagles, and other wildlife in their natural settings, surrounded by the incredibly beautiful backdrop views and photo opportunities of the Boulder-White Cloud, Lost River and Salmon River Mountain Ranges.

If fishing is more your style, how about a full-day's wilderness fly fishing adventure on Moose Creek in the Selway Wilderness Area? This incredible trip for two includes an airplane flight into Coeur d'Alene, a day of fly fishing, lunch, and two nights lodging in Coeur d'Alene.

Or, maybe you're more of the quiet adventure type. For you, there is a choice of a Harlequin duck spotting and river rafting trip, a waterfowl viewing adventure in Hagerman Valley, and a gourmet dinner and boat tour of Thousand Springs on the Snake River.

These are just a few of the incredible adventures available in this year's Trip Auction.

The foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1990 to protect and sustain Idaho's fishing, hunting and wildlife heritage.
