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
If you enjoyed our lodge
Castle Valley Outdoors is proud to be an Orvis-Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge.
Orvis is the oldest mail order company in the United States and the premier provider of hunting and fishing gear, as well as outdoor clothing and gear to serious sportsmen and adventure travelers.
To qualify for the Orvis-Endorsed Wingshooting Program, hunting lodges are required to meet stringent criteria established by Orvis. Each upland bird hunting lodge is personally visited by our Endorsed Wingshooting Director, who carefully evaluates the quality of the experience.
Equal to the quality of the bird hunt is the quality of the lodge itself. Prompt, courteous service is a must. Accommodations at these hunting lodges are first rate; they are always clean and comfortable and often elegant as well. Dining is a memorable experience at each, and all offer social amenities for the after-hunt hours. None of these wingshooting lodges will try to accommodate more clients in a day than it can personally attend to. And if the lodge personnel aren't on a first-name basis with you when you arrive, they will be by the time you depart.
