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.

Additional Thoughts:Both were very great guys and enjoyable to shoot with--just the right amount of guidance.
"The Flying B Ranch provided an outstanding wingshooting experience. The guides were wonderful and the dogs well trained. There is some nice variety in the birds which keeps you on your toes. The action is very lively! Everything from the transport from the airport to my massage with Julie was outstanding. I would love to learn Ryan's cooking tricks as the food could not have been better! He is a "top chef" in my opinion. All staff are very focused on making your experience the best."
