Design Your Hunt

All About You

At V1 Ranch, we are all about catering to your exact needs. You will never share your field with anyone other than your guide, a gun dog, and your buddies – in fact, we do our best to ensure that you will never see another hunter while on the property. All of our hunts are designed around you and your preferences, so all you have to be concerned with is your aim and the trigger. Your guide will help carry your birds, bring you extra ammo, and help you in any way necessary to ensure your hunt is as seamless as possible. Snacks and chilled beverages are provided in the field for all our hunts to help keep you hydrated and comfortable, no matter the weather. We have fields to match your abilities, dogs to match your enthusiasm, and guides to help you as little or as much as you’d like. Need something special or extraordinary? Let us know and we will do our best to provide whatever you may need to make your hunt more comfortable, exciting and eventful.

What people say

  • Nan Harman

    We were thrilled to find an unheard of drive-in locale where we could hunt pheasants in an expansive natural setting. I am fairly new to this sport but embraced first and foremost a wild setting not blighted by development. The view of field #2 with high terrain, ponds, cover and almost free of fences was most impressive. The families legacy is a story of its own, made more intriguing by the talent and color Tina and Dany offered. The staff was so friendly, welcoming, unpretentious, charismatic and warm that we found ourselves more able to absorb all our surroundings and what V1 had to offer. All was polished and darn fun. Thank you, Dany, for your tips for me the novice (don’t hold back next time), and Tina for your in-lodge ambiance! We look forward to more visits!

    “I’ve been on numerous guided bird hunts and this is top shelf hunting!”

  • Paul Grossbard - Houston, TX

    "Dany and Tina were great hosts - very accommodating. The facilities are excellent, food outstanding and the service left nothing to be desired. Hunts were great with good dog work & opportunity to talk down birds. Will be back!"

  • Steve Cooley - former Los Angeles District Attorney

    “Fabulous experience! Well organized and executed. Can hardly wait to do it again.”

  • Jimmy Trahin - Los Angeles, CA

    “A fantastic hunt with great dogs & great guides. A pheasant hunt like no other & one you will never forget.”

  • Brent Larson - Houston, TX

    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.

  • "Dozer Dave" from Discovery Channel show Gold Rush

    Beautiful accommodations, amazing food, well trained dogs, and hard flying birds on unbelievable land with amazing weather! I’ve been on a lot of bird hunts, and my hunt at V1 Ranch has been the best yet! I highly recommend V1 to everyone!

  • 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."

  • Steve Carter - Capistrano Beach, CA

    "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."

  • Zachary Downing - Lake Forrest, WA

    "Everything was fantastic! Had an awesome time! Top-notch!"

  • Don Warring - Mesa, AZ

    Simply an outstanding experience from start to finish. The location is beautiful and secluded, the staff is super friendly and makes you feel like part of the family. The lodge and food are on a 5 star hotel level, top notch. We had a great time in the fields too, the birds are strong high flyers and were a lot of fun to hunt. I'd never done a driven hunt before and the staff made it an experience I'll never forget. I highly recommend V1 Ranch if you're looking for a high end pheasant hunt.

  • Matt Swanson - San Diego, CA
