Upland Bird Hunting Questions & Answers
What species of birds are available?
On our traditional upland hunts, quail and pheasants are available. In the fall, our Premium package includes Chukars.
Can we check out your place during the non-hunting months?
Yes. Many of our hunters take advantage of our Resort season to check out what we have to offer. It also gives us both a chance to get to know each other a little better.
Are gun rentals available?
Yes. We charge $50 per day for gun rental. Please call us in advance if you would like to rent one of our guns.
Can I hunt with my own dogs?
Yes. We enjoy having guests bring their own dogs. We have kennels available for a small fee ($25 per night). Many of our guides are also dog trainers and can give you training tips when you are in the field. Dogs can also be rotated between guides dogs and your own dogs. Most of the time, the guide will not run their dogs at the same time you are running your dogs.
Do you hunt with pointing dogs or flushing dogs?
Most of our guides use pointing dogs. Some guides may run a flushing dog with their pointers. English Pointers, English Setters, and German Shorthairs are the most popular breeds used.
How many hunters can you take at one time?
We can accommodate hunting groups from 1-4 shooters.
Can we book an entire lodge for our group?
Yes an entire lodge can be privately booked.
Is ammunition available at the lodge?
Yes. We carry shells in both 12 gage and 20 gage. If other gages are needed, please call us in advance.
What size shot do you recommend for your hunts?
We recommend using 7 ½ shot. You never know if a pheasant or a quail may get up.
Do you have wild birds?
Yes. We have a good population of wild quail and a fair population of wild pheasants.
What are your season dates?
Our upland hunting season runs from September 1st-April 15th.
What type of habitat will we be hunting?
Our upland hunting grounds are made up of different types of native praire grasses. We have areas that are good for early season and others that are good for late season.
What is the difference between a traditional hunt and a premium hunt?
The premium hunt is a mixture of liberated birds and wild birds. This is for the bird hunter who likes to keep active during his hunt.
