What is Provided:
Guests are collected from a hotel of their choice at 8:00 a.m. We generally start hunting buy 9:00 a.m. Guide, quail rig, dogs, refreshments, and snacks are provided. A cooked lunch served with your choice of wines is provided at midday. After lunch, hunting resumes until roughly 5:00 p.m. Guests are generally returned to their hotel by 6:30 p.m. All birds harvested are cleaned, packaged, and frozen by your guide and ready for your departure.
Dress in layers for cooler mornings and warmer afternoons. Blaze orange vest/jacket and cap are recommended. Brush pants are recommended, but not essential. A good pair of walking boots is essential.
Shotguns in 12, 16, 20, and 28 gauge are recommended, and we strongly suggest #6 shot (lead) while hunting. Although we prefer clients to use side-by-side or over-and-under shotguns, pump-actions and semi-autos are permissible. If using a pump-action or semi-auto, please be attentive and collect all ejected casings while hunting and ensure the breach of the guns is open while not hunting.
What to Bring (Additional):
A camera and good friends! The scenery is spectacular and we'd hate for you to miss out on panoramic photo opportunities.
We also welcome guests bringing their own dogs.
November through February.
