GROUSE GALORE PHOTO TOUR
April 8-14, 2017
Airport: Omaha, Nebraska (OMA)
Why Take This Photo Tour With Us?
*We'll have the opportunity to photograph 2 species of grouse--greater prairie chickens and sharp-tailed grouse--on leks.
*We'll have 2 mornings with both leks.
*We'll be staying at the same comfortable ranch (every room has its own bathroom) for the entire photo tour.
*We’ll have a day to get used to our cameras at the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium.
Finding leks where you can photograph prairie chickens or sharp-tailed grouse is not all that difficult, although you usually have to set up your own blind. Finding a place where you can access both species at their respective leks is tough. However, we've found a place with lots of blind space near 2 different leks. What's more, we'll be staying at a ranch in the country giving us some photo opportunities without even leaving the property.
Day 1: You will have arrived yesterday. Today we’ll pay your entrance fee and spend the entire day at the the world famous Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium.
Day 2: After breakfast at the motel, we’ll begin our 4-hour trek to the ranch, stopping for lunch (on us) along the way to break up the ride. Arriving at the ranch we’ll get settled, meet our guides and have a nice dinner.
Day 3-5: Early morning at the leks, followed by breakfast.
Day 6: Early morning at a lek, followed by breakfast and drive back to Omaha.
