Flying B Ranch, ID

The Flying B Ranch has a wide variety of species to hunt, terrain to explore and hunting styles to accommodate. The ranch and lodge, all 5000 acres and 14,000 square feet of it, are located just outside the small town of Kamiah Idaho where we have been building a gundog program, refining our habitat and keeping a quality staff for over 25 years. Our guests tell us we have it about right, but we will continue to find places to improve along the path we have chosen.

"Our 3rd hunt took us on top of Lawyer Creek Canyon. The sport of wingshooting was fullfilled by shots at pheasants and chuckers, but the walk on the Lewis & Clark trail exceeded expectations."
