Wild pheasant, chukar, valley quail and Hungarian partridge on targeted species on all of our Idaho hunts. Birds are plentiful but vary from year to year.
Hunting areas are statewide and feature private ranches as well as public lands to select some of the best habitat with wild birds available.
Wingshooting the wild offers hunts on horseback, walking or by ATV. Hunting in Idaho can be vigorous given the terrain but with the addition of a well trained horse most areas are within reach. Our typical schedule combines a morning horseback hunt followed by lunch and a mid-day break and an afternoon walking hunt. Those not wanting to ride can walk both morning and afternoon. Most days, we hunt 9 AM - 12 PM and 2 PM - 5:30 PM.
Idaho upland hunts are conducted by one to two guides directing a maximum of three to five hunters depending on the style of hunt. For walking hunts one guide with a maximum of three hunters, and on horseback hunts the group size can be as many as 5 hunters with a maximum of two hunters on the ground at any time. The country is big and the vistas extraordinary. Pointing dogs steady to wing and shot locate and hold game. Flushing dogs will also be used on walking hunts typically for brushy, river bottom areas.
High quality lunches are served by your guide in a field setting or at the ranch bunkhouse.
Most hunts are three – four days in length and overnight accommodations are provided by lodges and B&B’s in the area.
We recommend that you bring your favorite double gun; otherwise a 12 or 20 gauge double gun can be provided. Appropriate ammunition is provided as are blaze orange strap vests and hats. You must provide waterproof upland hunting boots and appropriate clothing for the time of season.
