Ruggs Upland Bird hunting is like no other. Our preserve encompasses over 8000 acres that includes verdant valleys, rolling hills, and swift streams that wind along rocky bluffs. The habitat is planted strictly for the retention and health of the Pheasant, Chukar, Quail, and Hungarian Partridge. We practice an early release program and supplement as needed. You will never have to worry about the number of birds you will see on a hunt.

The points will be plentiful and the harvest will depend on your shot.

Upland Bird Hunting Season

What’s included*

Our wingshooting packages include lodging in our well appointed lodge (double occupancy with ensuite private baths), Chef prepared meals, wine with dinner and a cold beer after your hunt. As we do not have a bag limit, you will experience unlimited wingshooting for Pheasant, Chukar and Hungarian Partridge along side our team of highly skilled guides orchestrating our string of highly-trained pointers and flushers.

Shotgun shells for both our clays course and all of your hunting are included as well as transportation to-and-from the lodge to your hunting area. Our guides will clean your guns after each hunt and expertly dress and vaccum pack your bird harvest.

Adult beverages are provided after guns are put away, and we provide a custom ATV for clients that might have a hard time walking.

I have been to almost a hundred hunting and fishing lodges in my television career, some good, some not, several abysmal and very few exceptional. The list of those who consistently deliver on their promise of excellent hunting and hospitality is short. Ruggs Ranch belongs in that top tier.

Over and above everything (actually, I guess it would be under everything) is the land. I have never seen such variety and sheer volume. One of the reasons my viewers cite for going hunting is to be enveloped in natural beauty. Ruggs has it in spades, from stately timber strands and hushed forests, to limitless vistas of sage and bunchgrass. Thank goodness your string includes cockers for the wicked-thick bunchgrass and riparian areas, and horses for the big-sky chukar hills.

That abundant and high quality habitat leads to incredible hunting. Wild chukars, valley quail and Huns in their native surroundings, elk, deer, turkey ghosting through the pines, and of course pheasants skulking in the CRP and crops. It only gets better when you hunt horseback.

Your staff is top-drawer, driven to meet the needs of guests. Guides go out of their way to help, Gene takes dogs to the highest level, Vicky in the office is relentless in her attention to detail, and of course, Keith’s food is to die for. I warn you every time I visit that you’d better count your cocker spaniels before I leave because someday I will dognap one!

As their leader you’ve instilled in staff a willingness to go the extra mile and strive for excellence. A successful businessman told me years ago that the key to success was to be ten percent better than one’s competitors. In every respect Ruggs is that, or more.

Every time we broadcast an episode at Ruggs, my viewers express awe at the vastness, the “westernness” of Ruggs Ranch. It is every hunter’s dream to “cowboy up,” explore the wild west, be part of our rugged bast. Nowhere but at Ruggs can one live the dream.
