The Bird Hunting Report™ is a news source that traveling sportsmen have relied on for more than 20 years to provide independent insight and information about hunting destinations and outfitters across the United States and around the globe.

Through The Bird Hunting Report™, we share with you what we and our readers have experienced on trips to hunting destinations around the world.  And we don't represent the interests of anyone but our subscribers --- we tell you the good, the bad and the ugly about the places we go and the outfitters we use.

Perhaps most importantly, we are hunters just like you.  Meet some of your fellow shooters:
