Wing Shooting Update/Special for October

Hello Friends,

We hope you are enjoying a spectacular fall!

Here at Picabo Angler we are watching the leaves turn brilliant colors along with the spawning Brown Trout. We are also well into our Pheasant and Chukar seasons and have had one great hunt after another. The weather has been perfect and our reviews continue to be glowing. If you want to enjoy this incredible opportunity with us, now is the time!

For the rest of October we will be running a special upland hunting offer. Join us the rest of this month and you will get 2 free Chukar in the field for every 6 Pheasants you hunt and we will get your day started off right with a free Latte! Lunch is already included in your day’s hunt, so grab your shotgun, some blaze orange and come on down to Picabo for an excellent day afield. To book your day, please call John or Nick at 208.788.3536.

Waterfowl hunters, we are currently taking bookings for both water and field hunts over decoys. Once the northern birds arrive (and they are beginning to trickle in already) we can expect quite a bit of action over these migratory birds. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hunt waterfowl without heading all the way to the Snake River.

We can put you or yours in field blinds, and prepare you to see and target close working Ducks and Geese. The excitement level in these moments will burn into your memory forever. So don’t miss this exciting hunting adventure!

Currently we are hunting ducks in small ponds – A perfect hunt for youth, young retrievers, and anyone who wants a relaxed hunt in comfort.

For pricing and more details please see our pricing guide on this website. Click the wing shooting tab and then scroll to waterfowl and click! Our guides are incredibly excited to take you into the field!

Kind Regards,

Upland Primer for Dogs and Pups!

Greetings Upland Hunters

Please join us for the final two weeks of August with your pups in training!

With temperatures still too hot for hard working adult dogs to hunt long distances we are going to reserve the time from August 18th to the 29th for hunters wishing to introduce their new gun dogs to birds.

Join us every weekday morning and some weekends from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. as we head into the field with Chukar to practice a variety of hunting scenarios. Work of pointing, flushing, retrieving or just let your pup find a few birds! We are happy to put them out for you one bird at a time to ensure your puppy’s success.

This “clinic” is open to mature dogs that will be in the field for the first time this season or those that need a tune up. This will also be great for puppies that are hot off the press! This is a perfect time to socialize your new dogs, let them hear a few shots and get comfortable out in the field.

Picabo Angler Outfitter and Guides John Huber and Ross Copperman will be training their own puppies ranging from 1 year to 12 weeks and you will be able to train alongside of them.

Each dog owner will receive 4 Chukar to do as they wish with. We will plant them all at once, or one at a time. The cost is $175 per session. We will be on the Picabo Angler Shooting Preserve with adult Chukars. Reservations are required to keep group sizes to just a few dogs and owners. Call John Huber at 208.788.3536 to make your reservations.

This is a very low pressure, relaxed atmosphere, where our goal is to introduce puppies to birds in the cool morning hours and where fun is more important than perfection.

We look forward to seeing you in the field!

John Huber
