Wild Bird Hunts
Guided NC Wild Bird Hunts: Bobwhite Quail &Woodcock
For the dedicated bird hunter, we are proud to offer guiding for 100% wild birds. These are not “early-release” hunts, supplemented stocking, or any form of artificial production. As such, these trips are recommended only for individuals who truly believe that the pursuit is more important than the harvest and have strong fair-chase principles. Flush rates are relatively low compared to preserve hunts and opportunities to shoot are often challenging and fleeting.Guided Trip Rates
High Country Grouse $350
Mountain Grouse $350
Woodland Quail $300
Private Farm Quail $550*
*Prices based on a 2-person hunt, dependent on fees charged by landowners. Rate typically commensurate with habitat quality. Ethical Sustainable Harvest
We are dedicated to preserving the tradition of wild bird hunting. This sometimes requires exercising “trigger-control” during a small covey rise or simply allowing birds to escape if hunting near sunset. We do not guide on farms or in areas that have very small populations which could be threatened by harvest. For more information on our harvest practices, please contact us via phone. Expectations
–Piedmont hunts for wild quail generally find 2-5 coveys per 7 hour day, with moderate physical exertion. Expect tough cover and very fast birds. The average quail harvest for these hunts is 4-6 birds.
–Woodcock flush rates vary widely, generally dependent on the migration schedule. We choose areas that consistent yield 6-14 flushes per day.
Our guides will give their best on every trip, using their knowledge and skills to make your day in the field an enjoyable one. Tips are appreciated, but certainly not required or requested. Tipping is appropriate when you feel that your guide put forth additional efforts to make your day memorable.
