Guided Upland Bird Hunt
1-8 Guests • Lodge • Private • Guided
We have substantial populations of Ringneck pheasants and California quail. Our upland bird hunting is primarily done along creek bottoms, drainage ditches, crop fields or many of our other wetland areas, which provided habitat for all species. Eagle Lakes Ranch Lodge land is managed for wildlife habitat. We offer guided and unguided hunting options for upland bird hunts. On our guided hunts we will provide a pointing dog if you do not have one. You are welcome to bring your own dog as well.
As a bonus to our waterfowl customers, upland bird hunting is available in the afternoons.
Released pheasant and chucker hunting available upon request.
What to expect:
You will arrive the day before your hunt, check in time is 2pm and after. You can then enjoy a cocktail and visiting with other hunters throughout the lodge.
Dinner usually starts between 6-7. You will get a wakeup call the next morning and breakfast will be served. Your guide will meet you and give you a safety talk and let you know the plan for the morning hunt.
Lunch will be back at the lodge or delivered to the blind if you are still hunting. After your hunt you take your birds to the plucking shack where your birds are cleaned and packaged.
On the final morning of your hunt you need to have all of your belongings packed and neatly placed in the corner of your room so it can be prepped for the next guest arrival.
There are guest showers in the hall that are available after your hunt.
