We have a long upland bird season in Montana, September 1 to January 1. Pheasant season runs mid-October to January 1. The bag limits are generous, Huns 8 per day, sharptails 4 per day, pheasant 3 per day and sage grouse 2 per day. Possession limits are 32 Huns, 12 sharptails, 9 pheasant and 4 sage grouse. My upland bird hunts are based in Lewistown in the central part of the state. The birds are all wild and few places offer more variety and opportunity. In the early season you will encounter Hungarian partridge, sharptail grouse, sage grouse, Wilsons snipe and morning dove. Starting in mid October we concentrate on pheasants. Most of the hunting is on private land. The terrain is rolling hills, native prairie grassland and agricultural areas. Plan to walk 5 to 8 miles per day. Airlines fly to Lewistown, Billings and Great Falls. I do not carry a gun or mix hunting parties. The dogs are well trained English setters and Labrador retrievers. Your trained dog is always welcome.
There are currently great populations of upland birds. There are pheasants, sharp-tailed grouse, mountain grouse, and Hungarian partridges.

Whether you’re in search of SHARPTAIL GROUSE, SAGE GROUSE, HUNGARIAN PARTRIDGE OR RING NECK PHEASANT, you will find plenty to choose from at Chase Hill Outfitters. Bird hunting is done behind professionally trained bird dogs. We hunt 1000′s acres of wheat stubble and CRP grass lands (mainly conservation reserve program lands, CRP) that are not grazed by livestock. Our rolling hills, numerous windbreaks and good predator control has resulted in high quality hunting. We see approximately 100 Sharptail Grouse and close to the same number of Hungarian Partridge per day. The Sage grouse are definitely on the rebound due to our strict management of allowing only one per client and only if they are going to mount it. Pheasant hunting is done in creek bottoms and along the Milk River with the opportunity to limit out virtually every day.
Montana bird hunting is among the best bird hunting in the country. The variety of birds we hunt is nearly unrivaled.

It's the wide range of species we can hunt on one trip that makes this a truly unique bird hunting experience. The upland birds are hunted in a vast range of terrain from grassy flats to a wide array of thick brushy draws. The sharptail and partridge are found in the higher brush pockets and grass flats, pheasants in the lower thick draws, doves along roads and tree lines and the turkey hang out in the timber country.

The hunt starts early with dawn breaking over the rolling prairie vista. Soon, the dogs will be be rushing into the brush and you'll need to be quick and sharp.
