    Upland bird hunters,

    The 2009-2010 Red's Fly Shop bird hunting program on the Mount Baldy Ranch is officially underway. While the preserve season opened on Aug 1, the weather forecast for this week shows temperatures cooling down into the 75-80 degree range. The leaves have begun to change colors, and the Big Horn rams, which have spent all summer in bachelor groups, have begun to trail the ewes - clear indications that the Fall season has come to the Yakima canyon! We ran some Spring specials last season to get more hunters in the field, and had a lot of success with it. So we've restructured our pricing this year to keep it more affordable. We take a lot of pride in putting out healthy flight conditioned birds in a natural setting. We will go the extra mile to create a quality experience for your group. We have lots of clients who have young dogs they want to work. We are happy to hold back a few birds in crates at their request for them to do some focused training. We have seen Chukar every time we've been through the ranch this summer, and the bird numbers look much better than last year. We have 15,000 acres of leased ground to spread out on in pursuit of wild birds, and have done some good work over the last couple years to enhance Quail and Chukar populations. The pricing schedule for this season is as follows:

    Annual Membership Fee: $99.00

    PRESERVE HUNTS: Include 7 Chukar or 6 Roosters released per gun

    Guided preserve hunts (1-2) guns: $299.00 (Non members); $259.00 (Members)
    Guided preserve hunts (3+) guns: $269.00 (Non members); $229.00 (Members)
    Self guided preserve hunts (1-2) guns: $229.00 (Non members); $189.00 (Members)
    Self guided preserve hunts (3+) guns: $199.00 (Non members); $159.00 (Members)

    Preserve hunts typically last 2-3 hours and take place on our 1000 acre Mount Baldy preserve, which is located high atop a sage brush and basalt covered plateau overlooking the Yakima River canyon. The preserve offers a great variety of terrain, which enables your hike to be tailored to any physical ability. The preserve season runs from August 1 through March 31, 2010.

    WILD CHUKAR AND QUAIL HUNTS: (Opens Oct 3)

    Guided: $399.00 / gun (non members); $359.00/ gun (members) 2 gun minimum required

    My friends and I did a spring hunt here and I can highly recommend it! Steve and his crew do a great job and the chukar fly really well (based on our shooting maybe too well!) A great way to get the new dog into some birds in a controlled setting. Rick
