Bird Hunting Nevada
In Nevada, upland game bird species include blue and ruffed grouse, sage grouse, chukar and Hungarian partridge, snowcock, ring-necked pheasant, California, Gambel’s and mountain quail, and North American wild turkey.
Why You Should Consider Bird Hunting Nevada:
- Exceptional chukar hunting.
- The Hungarian partridge is not as common and found primarily in the northeastern portion of the state.
- The California Quail is primarily found in the northwestern portion of the state. The season runs concurrently with Chukar season and is a welcome addition to the bag limit.
- Not a lot of competition, Nevada is often overlooked.
Nevada Chukar Hunting
Quality wild chukar hunting with low pressure and ample amounts of pre-scouted upland birds is this outfitters goal.
Wild upland bird hunting is becoming more and more limited each season, but Nevada still has some incredible wild chukar hunting. This outfitter has a kennel full of fine pointing dogs, and the knowledge of the area to get you into birds.
These wild upland bird hunts take place October through early November. Each year, prior to hunting season, all of the hunting locations are pre-scouted to determine chukar populations, and where the birds are hanging.
Hunting may take place across the entire state of Nevada depending on chukar populations. In most cases it is necessary to concentrate on a single species each day, but you can expect to run across a few coveys of Hungarian partridge, and possibly even a few Gambels quail depending on the area you are hunting.
You’ll be hunting behind well-trained pointing dogs.
Hunting behind a good pointer is a pleasure, and this outfitter runs some great dogs. You will enjoy their well-trained Brittany’s, Pointers, and English Setters. Walking over your three days will be extensive, but it is normally on gently rolling hills with a few steep areas. Chukars live in rough country, but the guides do their best to find moderate terrain.
Each guide will take no more than two hunters (in most cases) and you will usually change guides daily so that you will have the pleasure of bird hunting with each guide and his dogs. All guides will have at least four dogs each. It is fun to watch the dogs range wide in the rugged expanse of chukar territory.

We hunted birds for three days and since most of the corn was already cut, there were pheasants everywhere! It was the perfect South Dakota pheasant hunt. We had some corn strips near the farmhouse that had hundreds of birds in them. With ten people pheasant hunting, our limit was thirty birds a day, and everybody shot well so it was a blast! Another highlight of the trip was the food. One night, my dad made Dutch Oven pheasant and crab dinner for us… That was some good stuff.
I have to say this was the best upland bird hunting I have ever experienced. Bud is an honest hardworking outfitter and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Outdoors International.
