Our territory is 2,100 square miles or over 1.3 million acres and we are the sole territory owners, meaning no other outfitters. That comes with challenges, but good ones, as I’ll never be able to see and hunt the whole territory in my lifetime. I also need to develop junior guides, people I trust and want to see develop into professionals but they are not there yet on judging trophy quality or customer service nuances. Their outdoors skills are excellent generally having grown up outdoors here, their guiding is fresh however. Under this plan you can hunt with us for a huge discount, cutting out my profit margin but I learn about new areas of the territory through you, and develop my guides. Those are benefits of a different sort for me.
