I have had the honor of having Mike Fifer (CEO of Ruger Firearms), members of the NYPD, a Mayor of Tijuana, and several hunters from the FBI, CIA, and The Pentagon, a group of Chicago Firefighters, a Top Gun Pilot, 9 Time World Champion MMA Fighter, and a lot of 'regular Joe's' as clients in the past. I am proud of my operation. I have found that by providing a list of ALL of last year's clients, inquirers know they are getting a complete representation of my clients and not just names and numbers of the happy clients that have been hand picked by me to tell you how great I am. I would encourage you to phone many of these guys and ask them any questions that you feel are important in making your decision to hunt with me. If you are satisfied with their answers, give me a call and we will go ahead with setting up your hunt.
You should not consider booking a hunt with an outfitter before you speak with all of the hunters who have hunted at the same time and place during the previous season. It is important to know ahead of time what you are getting for your money. It is important to know the name of the individual who will accompany you in the field. I am proud of the attention I give my clients before, during, and after the hunt. **Most importantly, don't consider booking a hunt with anyone that is not willing to give you the names and numbers of all the clients from the previous season.**
Email me right now and I will provide you with the list of ALL of my clients from last year. You will receive a return email containing the names shortly.
Unless other arrangements are made, I will be your guide. In a perfect world, an employee would care about the business as much as the owner. Unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world. I do all of my own guiding unless other arrangements are made. It is comforting for you to know that the guy who is cashing your check (me) is the same guy who will accompany you in the field (me). I put my reputation on the line every time I cash a check.
When researching a hunt, you should ask to speak with ALL of the clients who hunted the same time you are considering hunting the previous year. It is foolish to consider booking a hunt with an outfitter before you speak with hunters who have hunted the same time and place during the previous season. It is important to know ahead of time what you are getting for your money. I am proud of the attention I give each client before, during, and after the hunt. Most importantly, DON'T CONSIDER BOOKING A HUNT WITH ANYONE THAT IS NOT WILLING TO GIVE YOU PHONE NUMBERS AND/OR EMAIL ADDRESSES OF ALL OF THEIR CLIENTS FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR.

If you call in August or September I will be off the grid guiding in remote Alaska. In this case use my landline, it will be forwarded to my cell or my wife Julie’s cell, whomever is available. Leave a message. She talks with me via satellite phone everyday. My communication skills are excellent most of the year but it is challenging when I’m off the grid. Please use patience during August and September, it will be worth it.
