Upland hunting with Wind River Wingshooting

About our Dogs 

We run German Shorthairs and Gordon Setters, and we have a brace of outstanding canines to stay on top of the wind for as long as your feet will carry you. These top-tier dogs are what make our days, so you can expect they’re our best-cared-for employees! We breed our own Gordons and work with select trainers to get them to the top of their “game.” That’s why members of our Wind River Wingshooting pack have graced the cover of the likes of Covey Rise, Shooting Sportsman, and others.

Customized Upland Hunts with Wind River Wingshooting 

Each of our hunts is customized to you and your crew. Length of hunt, location, game, lodging, dining, and so much more are tailored to your interests, abilities, timeframe, and group. If you have an idea or a request, chances are Kyle can make it happen.

For the best possible upland hunting experience, we secure access to private land and scout the public lands of Wyoming, Nebraska, and Colorado for each species of bird we hunt. Wind River Wingshooting is based in Lander, Wyoming, where we have, without question, the best sage grouse hunting in the United States. Right out our back door you will also find pheasant, chukar, ruffed grouse, and hungarian partridge. We also have access to some truly fantastic property in southwestern Nebraska, where we find prairie chicken, as well as pheasant, huns, and bobwhite quail.

Rates: $995 a day per hunter “All-inclusive” Or $650.00 A day in the field. Includes guide, dogs, lunch and birds cleaned.  Ask about our Texas, New Mexico and Arizona custom wild quail hunts.  CALL FOR MORE DETAILS

What Our Clients Are Saying

Excellent Sage Grouse & Chukar Experience

“Traditionally I have hunted Nebraska Pheasant Opener for years and Kyle was our guide for a group of 8 hunters this year. The overall experience was excellent. He arranged the lodging, the meals, daily hunt plan and brought exceptional dogs. His experience was obvious. The corn was still up and made for a little more difficult hunting, however he was always positive and his dogs were the best. I have ever hunted over!!!! Already booking for next year…..just not opener.”

-Victor Raposo

Upland Extravaganza

“Wind River Wingshooting is the perfect upland guide service for the upland wingshooting enthusiast wanting to have the opportunity at multiple species. Kyle is setup specifically for two wingshooters. The dogs are great and really respond to Kyle in and out of the field. The accommodations are very comfortable and conveniently located right next door the the Waggoner’s home. Breakfast and dinners are home cooked by Kyle’s wife. Hospitality and family atmosphere is warm and inviting Kyle is the consummate host and guide. Lander WY and the surrounding area is beautiful. Several difference landscapes and settings supporting multiple bird species within a 50 mile radius.”

-Tom Hansen

September Sage Grouse

“I have been hunting with Kyle Waggoner for the last five years. He is an excellent guide and also fun to hang out with after the hunt. He has years of experience hunting in Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, and Kansas. He has a team of amazing hunting dogs, all pointers. Warching a group of well trained dogs work really makes the experience. He has access to lots of land in Nebraska. I have not yet gone on a hunt with him in Wyoming, but plan to in the future. If you are a novice or an experienced hunter, give Kyle a call!!”
