    Default Lewistown, MT

    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

    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.
    All inclusive but this is what you would not get with the package.

    Transportation to and from the airport.
    No lodging.
    No beverages, no meals. HEY a sandwich for lunch is included.
    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????

    Below is a link to Nolan's web site. Seems a bit pricey for what you get but then I don't know how deep your pockets are. I have personally met Nolan Huffman on several occasions and he is a great guy. Trains dogs and runs a lot of NSTRA trials across the country.

    What great input you have -- I mean you offered what -- no advice or alternative recommendations at all? Have you ever used a guide for anything? He's like $75 more than a fly fishing guide on the Beaverhead who provides essentially the same level of service except doesn't HAVE to guide on private ground (which I am sure is not free), doesn't have to maintain a team of guide dogs, clean birds, etc. If you start hunting at 8:00 a.m., 10 to 1 says the guide started working at 6.

    As with any profession, I am sure you could question the value of the services offered. What is it you do for a living?

    Troutman, I did say "this is something we should all do"

    I have no problem with "pay to hunt"

    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 " and the "What the heck?????"

    But maybe I'm more like Sheldon than I thought.

    $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.

    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.

    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.
