Through careful ranch selections, extensive game management programs, seasoned guides, and dedicated hunters with good marksmanship, our hunters have always maintained a very high success rate on all game pursued.

Our equipment is top of the line. Meals that we serve are tasty. The hunting camps have a warm feeling of camaraderie and many friendships are made that last for years to come. We are very proud of what we provide and hope that you too will become a part of our family of friends.

"One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted....If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job." -Jose Ortega y Gasset, Meditations on Hunting

"A hunt based only on trophies taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be...time to commune with your inner soul as you share the outdoors with the birds, animals, and fish that live there. A downed animal is the object of a hunting trip, but it becomes an anitclimax when compared to the many other pleasures of the hunt. A period of remorse is in order. Perhaps a few words of forgiveness for having taken a life. After this there is the self-satisfaction for having accomplished a successful stalk and made a good shot. I like to think that an expedition be looked upon, whether it be an evening hunt nearby or a prolonged trip to some far-off place, as a venture into an unspoiled area. Hardships are quickly forgotten. Bitter cold, rain and snow, fatigue and luckless hunting fade into memories of great fellowship, thoughts of beautiful country, pleasant camps and happy campfires." - Fred Bear
