Ah, the crisp days of fall!   Nothing makes one feel as intensely alive as the prospect of Upland Bird Hunting….its refined and elegant traditions juxtaposed with the wild unpredictabilities of nature.

And Smith Fork Ranch can provide you with a most ideal home base from which one can experience the great sport of wing shooting and explore this wondrous valley.   SFR provides the finest in relaxed luxury and impeccable personal service.  Our haute western cuisine draws inspiration from the abundant surrounding valley and our own organic farmstead garden. We also have an extensive bar and wine cellar with over 500 wines including rare vintages from around the World and our valley.

For the quintessential sporting experience, we have combine Western Colorado wing shooting with the exclusive, private comfort of Smith Fork Ranch, featuring our gourmet farm-to-table cuisine, fine wines, and relaxed luxury.

The Sporting Life at Smith Fork Ranch begins when one starts the day with a robust ranch breakfast in our cookhouse. Farm fresh eggs, applewood smoked bacon, and home made bread, pastries, and granola.  Meet your guide and eager dogs at a civilized hour, and begin your day of guided wing shooting adventure found only in our secluded corner of Western Colorado.  Sporting tradition enriches the pursuit of quarry.  Success is a measure not of the day’s bag, but of the totality of the experience.

After a hot lunch at the club house, and an afternoon of more guided wing shooting, relax with cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres by the great stone fireplace in our Old Elk Lodge.  Then comes a delicious dinner with suggested wine pairings from our extensive cellar.  After desert, linger by the fire with your choice of scotch or digestif, or gather your friends for a game of Snooker, Billiards, or cards.  

And then to sleep in the most comfortable bed you can imagine.

A customized hunting and fishing excursion, a relaxing massage at days end, multi-course delightful dinners among friends, drinks and great conversations by the fire, and many surprising personal touches –  Smith Fork Ranch has enough luxury and comfort for the most discriminating traveler and enough action and adventure for those looking for a true western experience. Our guests absolute satisfaction and pleasure are paramount to us.
