Orvis-Endorsed Wingshooting Guide located near Glasgow, Montana.


Big sky country is Northeast Montana and here it seems the blue sky never ends. This remote countryside is home to those in agriculture. The result is phenomenal habitat for upland bird hunting. Countless Upland Birds fill the surrounding prairie. This perfect habitat provides staples such as snow berries, buffalo berries, and wheat. Native Sharp Tailed Grouse populations are as plentiful as anywhere in the country. Ring Neck Pheasant and Hungarian Partridge also thrive on the available food sources. We pursue wild birds in wild county. This area is one of largest wild prairie ecosystems in existence today.

Migratory waterfowl are also common in this area. Some hunts include additional waterfowl species at your choice. First rate lodging is included in your hunt. Hunters may bring their own dogs.
