My V1 Ranch experience exceeded expectations, including comfortable accommodations, expert dog handling, serious upland hunting and great meals. Dany and Tina are wonderful hosts! Morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the valley should not be missed. This is a unique upland hunting destination, and I will definitely return and recommend it to my friends.

"We loved our hunt at V1 Ranch. The terrain was diverse, the birds were flying and plentiful! We brought our pointer and she had a great time. The staff is excellent and all about catering to the specific needs of their clients. I highly recommend V1 Ranch for Upland game hunters who want a unique and first class experience."
Skeets Dunn - Spokane Valley, WA
"I have hunted since I was 6 years old in all kinds of habitat around the world. If you like hunting birds, enjoy a fantastic lunch with unmatched scenery, you need to visit the V1 Ranch. They have great overnight accommodations too if you succumb to the Dauo Vineyard wines they like to serve. You will not be disappointed with their little piece of heaven."
