Guided Hunts

No Off Season’s exclusive, high volume varmint hunts take place near Crane, Oregon, The Sage Rat Capitol of the World. Sage Rats (Belding’s Ground Squirrels) are small, highly prolific animals that provide huge numbers of targets approximately 1/3 the size of prairie dogs.  Shooting takes place from point blank to the limits of the practical accuracy of your rifle.  The .22 LR and .17 HMR rule during the peak of the population but many hunters enjoy the added range and flat trajectory of their centerfire varmint rifles and AR15’s.

A guide, shooting benches and rests are provided. Just bring your favorite varmint rifles, optics and lots of ammo! Rimfires as well as centerfire rifles are welcome.  (No full metal jacket centerfire ammo, please!)  Hundreds of shots per day are possible.

Kids with hunter safety training are welcome. This is a great opportunity to introduce new shooters to hunting and enough action to keep even your die-hard video game junkies interested.
