Clay Target ShooyingEach day hunting starts early with a hearty breakfast at the lodge. On the first day of your hunt you will spend some time on “the bird walk” a seven station clay range designed to simulate shooting scenarios encountered in upland bird hunting, to sharpen and refresh your shooting skills. The rest of that day and all other days are spent hunting on the Hunting Grounds at Pleasant Valley. With an expert guide and world class gun dogs you are sure to get in a lot of great shooting.

Hunts at Falcon’s Ledge are conducted in the traditional western walk-up style over pointing or flushing dogs. Your guide and dogs work as a team to find birds for you. Is there anything as wonderful as walking in autumn fields, watching fine gun dogs coursing before you, sniffing each scent as they race ahead. Our dogs love to hunt and want nothing more than to find birds. Guests typically hunt two to four hunters with one guide and a team of dogs. We can tailor the level of exertion required and terrain on your hunt to match your physical ability.

At the end of each day’s hunt, your birds are processed and packaged for you to take home. Lunch is served each day in the field or at the Pleasant Valley Hunting Grounds lodge.

The Hunting Grounds at Pleasant Valley

The Hunting Grounds consist of 3,000 plus acres of grain fields, tall grass, cattails, creek bottoms, Russian olive trees, draws, and rocky hillsides. You will hunt different cover every day.

We offer plenty of birds to hunt by liberating birds into the wild population when needed. These noisy birds flush in ones, twos and threes, powerful, strong flying birds in brilliant colors. With an expert guide and a world class gun dog you are going to get in a lot of great hunting.

The experience of the pheasant’s cackle as they leap into flight, and chukars bursting from rocky cover will be remembered long after the hunt is over.

Hunting groups are kept small to maximize the experience. Optimum field hunting groups consist of two or three shooters, with a maximum of four per guide and dogs. Breaks are taken to water and rest both the dogs and the hunters. We can tailor the level of exertion required and terrain on your hunt to match your physical ability.
