I have no knowledge of Nolan Huffman, so a quick google.
This is something we should all do. Cheap, a limit of pen raised pheasants. (maybe)
It will cost just about nothing, well worth it.
$550 per day per person. :thumbsup:
All inclusive but this is what you would not get with the package.
Transportation to and from the airport.
No beverages, no meals. HEY a sandwich for lunch is included. :10sign:
You bring the shells, gun, all personnal stuff. SO what the heck do you expect??
Oh yeah! bring cash for gratuities, they don't like visa or personal checks.
I mean, What the heck????
Sorry -- but I guess that message got lost in the content that followed it referencing pen raised pheasants and I took the rest of the post as facetious, especially considering the: "HEY a sandwich for lunch is included :10sign:" and the "What the heck?????"Troutman, I did say "this is something we should all do"
I have no problem with "pay to hunt"
Thanks for your input. I checked his website for further information. I am a senior citizen and will be hunting with my son. I have a three year old pointing lab which has been hunted in CO. SD and CA., so having a guide with dogs is not a big item.Nolan Huffman, second to none.
Thanks for your input. Sorry if if my request prompted a negative response. I have hunted with guides for both hunting and fishing and I agree with your comment re being pricey for hunting only. This price is more in line with a lodge in my experience.$550 per day isn't all that rare, prices get higher then that.
Except usually it would include some lodging/meals.
Not all, but usually with a high price tag, even the Dec Hunters will get a chance at roosters, one way or another.
A place I know of, couldn't find any info on the net. Nice large land area and good birds. I'll see if I can get a phone number.

I am not sure I have ever shot "shirttails?" Just messing with you, I am trying to lighten up the whole thread here!Going to be in lewiston in October and am looking for a guide to hunt pheasants, shirttails and Huns. Haven't been there before and would appreciate any suggestions, ideas, as to who to contact, where to stay, etc.
Thanks for your assistance. George
Well that's certainly one way to do things. It sounds a lot more like an industrial operation than hunting but to each his own.I don't know how much you plan on hunting -- but if you are looking for huns and sharptails or plan on hunting multiple days: One dog of any make, kind, breed or experience ain't going to cut it. Pheasants -- yeah, it could work by just hunting the creeks. Our medium range to big running dogs typically run 15- 20 miles per day in MT. We usually have 2 to 3 dogs on the ground at a time and will rotate through our string of anywhere from 8 to 12 dogs throughout the day with all but maybe one or two fitting in the close working dog category (within 100 yards) and those dogs cover about 10 - 12 miles per day. So, that's usually four braces of dogs per day, covering roughly 140 to 160 miles per day.
4 guys, ten days and over 20 hours of travel one way -- we're going to give it the best shot we can as well as give our dogs the best opportunity to have as many bird contacts as they can. It's an operation, but far from industrial.Well that's certainly one way to do things. It sounds a lot more like an industrial operation than hunting but to each his own.
gewilber, you and your son can have a great time with your Lab and shoot all the birds the law allows. Huns will be the hardest to get but Sharptails, if you can find a way to cook them to make them palatable, are more than doable with a pointing lab and pheasants are what that dog was bred to find. Make it an adventure and don't limit yourself to just the Livingstown area. It's a big state with lots of public land.
I've tried them numbers of ways but not quite like that. It sounds tasty so maybe I'll shoot a Sharptail this coming year.For sharptail -- You have to cook them rare. I cook the breasts like this: A pickle brine of whole black peppercorns, whole allspice and a few cloves over night. Take them out of the brine, dust them with a little ground black pepper and olive oil. Get the grill as hot as it will go and sear each side. No need for a knife. The other way I really like to have them is in a stew. Legs help with the stock.
The old fella with the yellow dog -- how long does he hunt in a day? How many days in a row?
