Wing Shooting

The wing shooting program at The High Lonesome Ranch is also Orvis Endorsed. Hunt five species of birds in the tens of thousands of acres of pristine upland coverts. Anticipate rising birds that range from the wily pheasant to the covey-oriented chukar and Hungarian partridge. Two species of quail inhabit the property as well – Scaled and Gambel’s – and enthusiasts have an opportunity to hunt our wide variety of hard-flying game birds every day.

Hunt wheat and rye fields, creek bottoms, and sage and oak-brush flats for wild and early-release pheasant, chukar and Hungarian partridge, and Scaled and Gambel’s quail. All guides are NSCA Level 1 certified shooting instructors. Pre-hunt warm ups are at the Five Stand, at either of the Pheasant and Quail Walk-Up shooting courses, or the new Flurry Course which throws between 20-60 clays per minute from the cliff soaring above the shooting line. Try our popular Fall Cast and Blast, Spring Turkey Trout, White Powder/Black Powder, or Summer Fish and Chips or Fish and Chip (shooting and golf). Shotgun rentals are available, and shells and orange gear are available at the Lonesome Outfitter Shop.

Cast and Blast

Combine fly-fishing with wing shooting in one day to ensure that you’re challenged all day long.
