Sun Valley Wingshooting with Picabo Angler

Picabo Angler is dedicated to preserving the long tradition of Sun Valley wingshooting in the Silver Creek Valley. Many a day in the field saw Ernest Hemingway and other larger than life figures hunting the Purdy’s K-K ranch. Upland hunters and waterfowl hunters alike can walk into Picabo Angler and see some of Ernest Hemingway’s guns and signed copies of his books on our walls. Hemingway, like many Idaho hunters turned to locals like Bud Purdy when it came time to hunt. Today this tradition continues and you are invited to join more generations of the Purdy family as we continue the fine hunting tradition on the K-K ranch.

John Huber now heads up both the upland and waterfowl Sun Valley program on the ranch. His love of English Setters is always on display, although he will always encourage wing shooters to bring their favorite hunting dogs to the preserve. Sun Valley Pheasant, Chukar, Goose and Duck are all available to hunt on the ranch, and all the hunts are presented to the hunter at the highest levels of service we can provide.

All of our Sun Valley hunts are well thought out and planned thoroughly. Each hunt has one or more Sun Valley guides involved, and should you need a dog, we have those as well. We accompany all hunters into the field and follow through until the birds are packaged and in your hands. Picabo Angler is also our base of operation so hunters can plan on hot meals before and after their hunt. They can also expect a high level of service, making sure you get to the field well prepared.
