Upland Game Hunting
The wing shooting on the Ranch is phenomenal. Professional bird rearing techniques have allowed us to raise birds that look and act identical to their wild counterparts. You will have a hard time believing that any of the birds you are hunting have been pen raised. We have spent countless hours creating and maintaining Mother Nature’s natural habitat on the Hunting Unit. Although this is a working ranch and crops are raised and harvested there is still an overabundance natural cover in and around the cultivated fields. You will be hunting natural and improved range-land a combination of rolling hills with dry farm wheat, barley, alfalfa, sage, CRP grass and irrigated farm ground. It is this habitat that allows the ranch to hold both released and wild birds on the property year round. We offer mixed bag hunts of partridge as well as the wily ring neck pheasant. During a typical hunt, it is not uncommon to see as many as 100 roosters and several coveys of partridge.
Our wing shooting guides are professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and will do whatever it takes to ensure a successful and enjoyable hunting experience. We use mostly pointing dogs, Llewellin setters, short hair and wire haired pointers with some lab retrievers as well. These dogs have been hunting since they were old enough to walk. By the time they are a year old they have found and retrieved countless birds. The combination of masterful guides, gracefully skilled dogs and hard flying birds will make your wing shooting memories something you will never forget.
