Last December at the Banquet hosted by the Five Valleys Chapter of SCI, my wife and I purchased a 3 night 2 day hunt with Castle Valley Outdoors in South Eastern Utah. As it turns out, this was one of my best “investments” in 2009. For those familiar with the stock and real estate markets, 2009 was not a vintage year!!! However, the upland bird hunting was fantastic.
Excellent guides, strong flying pheasants and chukkars, and the best pointers I have ever seen. Beautiful lodge in a spectacular setting, Gourmet country meals. This is the fifth year that Castle Valley Outdoors has been an Orvis endorsed lodge. Jim Fauver, the Manager, and his staff make you feel like family from the minute you walk in the door.
The packages that Castle Valley offers are probably the best you can find for the money. Lloyd Straits SCI Member - Five Valleys and Montana ChaptersLloyd Straits

Castle Valley Outdoors - An Enduring Legacy of the West
The founder and owner of Castle Valley Outdoors is no stranger to this special place. Glendon Johnson, a Harvard Law School graduate who grew up on the back of a horse in southern Utah and never sold his saddle. A former executive and owner of several national insurance companies, Glendon is really known as an executive cowboy and enjoys sharing his love of the outdoors and hunting with his guests at this beautiful facility.
Castle Valley Ranch is more than a family-owned pheasant hunting lodge, it's an opportunity to experience the real West away from the hustle and bustle of modern society. This is a hard and unforgiving land that was settled by tough and rugged pioneers who carved out a living in the desert lands of Utah.
The beauties of this rich landscape coupled with a dry cool climate is one of the many reasons Castle Valley Outdoors is sought after by so many hunting and outdoor enthusiasts.
