Where to Go Hunting in Central Oregon
If you want to hunt upland birds in Central Oregon, then you need to visit us. If you haven't already, we invite you to try your hand at pheasant and chukar hunting near Maupin. Since 1995, our Director of Hunting, Bob Krein, has been involved in a number of shooting preserves popular with Oregon hunters.
Currently, he runs Maupin’s Sage Canyon Outfitters. Krein’s expertise guarantees you will enjoy a successful bird hunting experience no matter your skill level.
We have access to 4 preserves and thousands of acres of prime hunting terrain. The terrain consists of premium high desert CRP fields, rocky canyons and draws as well as places in-between laced with small creeks and ponds. Birds are plentiful, our staff is friendly, and the hunting fields are only 15 minutes from our lodge. Guided and non-guided hunts are available. Hunt for the day & bring your dog.
