We take you and your dog, if desired, downriver by drift boat into the middle of chukar vortex. Our dogs hunt chukars all season long and is the only bird they hunt. They are serious, well-read, and primed for finding, pointing, and retrieving birds. It is their favorite thing, and watching them is ours.
From 1-6 day trips.
The river is beautiful from the high vistas we often negotiate to find birds. Panoramic views of a canyon that is over a mile deep in some places will take your breath away, both getting there, and sheer magnitude of awesome natural grandeur.
We limit boat to two guests and dogs, and have a baggage raft that takes gear and sets up camp (on multi-day trips) so we can hunt and fish for longer periods of time before moving downriver.
These trips are not for everyone. The country demands a person be in good physical shape to hunt. Elderly guests not able to get around as well as in their younger years can also enjoy hunting lower elevations earlier in the season, weather permitting. Contact us for specific questions and so we can help you evaluate the potential of your participation in one of our trips.
Trips can also be combined with steelhead fishing.
Price includes: BLM use fee, camping equipment, and hearty meals. Tents offer standing room and cots make for a most comfortable sleep.
Price does NOT include: Hunting and fishing license, shells, or dog food if you bring your own dog. But it does include fishing gear if you wish to fish.
Note: we are serious about chukar hunting here at Wapiti land, so you have arrived at the right place if you want to hunt hard and work with your dog. We will go as hard (or not) as you wish, to find birds.
