For more than twenty years, the Orvis Company has been recognizing excellence in sporting experiences through its Endorsed Lodges, Outfitters, and Guides Program.
Each year representatives from each of these categories are nominated ,and ultimately one is chosen for the best of the year. These awards are based on a number of criteria, the most important being the voice of the customer: the feedback we receive on these operations from the customers who have experienced them, for that is the ultimate arbiter of success.
Combined with that is the operation’s environmental commitment and stewardship to their resource and their partnership with Orvis in providing the finest sporting experience possible for the Orvis customer.
At a ceremony during the annual Orvis Guide rendezvous in Missoula, Montana, Flying B Ranch in Kamiah, Idaho was named the 2014 Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year.
Nestled in Lawyer’s Canyon in northern Idaho, the Flying B Ranch has a wide variety of species to hunt, terrain to explore and hunting styles to accommodate any sportsman. The 5,000 acres ranch and 14,000 square feet lodge are located just outside the small town of Kamiah, Idaho, and are the results of continual efforts to build a gundog program, refine habitat and keep a quality staff over the past 25 years.
Here is what a recent guest had to say, “Every trip to the Flying B Ranch is exceptional. I’ve been bringing clients for many years and the guides, dogs, staff, and lodge is always first class and an experience of a life time for clients and myself. It is very hard to come by one great worker, or group who you feel loves their work. The crew we had made this place, and made me feel like I was family. I enjoyed talking and being around every one of them. Thank you to all.”
Congratulations to the other nominees, as well!
