  • Boise City, ID (1888PressRelease) July 31, 2010 - Few things in the United States have been around for a century. The Boy Scouts celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2009. One of the country's leading cereal companies reached the achievement in 2006. In 2010, one of the leading Idaho outfitters celebrated the centennial of the homestead by launching a new web site.

    The Shepp Ranch, located in the Gospel Hump Wilderness on the Salmon River in central Idaho, started thanks to homesteading efforts in 1909-1910 by Charles Shepp and Pete Klinkhammer. In fact, the land's primary ranch house was built by the two men early in their homesteading years. Forty years later, Klinkhammer sold the property but it continued to be named for his partner, Charlie Shepp. The new owners added additional features, such as a saw mill, and used the property as the base for their operations as successful Idaho outfitters.

    To celebrate the history of this Idaho guest ranch, the newest owner, Tim Turnbull, launched an all-new web site to showcase all the beauty of Shepp Ranch and what his special corner of Idaho has to offer. "When people think of Idaho, they think of potatoes. But there's a lot more than that available. We want more people to experience the beauty of this state by coming to the ranch and experiencing it for themselves firsthand. The updated web site is a great way to preview before a trip to Shepp Ranch," says Turnbull.

    Vacationers at the Idaho guest ranch have many activities to enjoy. The adventure starts with an incredible jet boat ride upriver to the ranch- a great preview of more adventures to come. Horseback riding is available from spring through the start of fall. Archery, horseshoe, volleyball, and croquet equipment makes for family fun on the sprawling lawn. Hiking trails, shooting ranges, river swimming, and jet boat tours provide guests with entertainment, or they can simply sit in a lounge chair with a book from the ranch's library. Guests enjoy family style meals three times a day, with accommodations in one of six private cabins on the property.

    Spring and fall hunters can choose from guided hunts for bear, cougar, elk, and deer, sheep, and great chukar wing shooting. Because of their years of experience, these Idaho outfitters have a near 100% success rate in bear hunting. And Shepp Ranch is ideally positioned fantastic spring and fall steelhead in the Salmon River, located right out the front door, plus great trout fishing all season.

    With nightly campfires, beautiful scenery, and relaxing activities, Shepp Ranch is a great family guest ranch destination in a spectacular setting. More information about all of these activities, including photographs of the property and a first person account of a bear hunting expedition, can be found on the ranch's newly launched web site.
