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.

"I was lucky enough to do the bird shoot and the river fishing which I thought was excellent. TO have a break from shooting, going down the river, to me, was an excellent change."
