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.

"From the start till the end the Flying B Ranch was a 5 star rating. The Ranch made my first pheasant hunt, first lodge stay, and first time hunting with dogs the best experience ever. I don't have enough room on this page to say enough about it but will finish off by saying that the guides I hunted with were very knowledgeable and easy going so mucfh that it felt like you were hunting with another friend."
