Nathan Ellison has been a professional outfitter and guide for 48 years. His family has ranched and hunted Arizona since it's territorial days. Mr. Ellison has vast experience in hunting all of North America's big game. I have a great deal of admiration for Nathan, and together we will be sure to give you a hunt of a lifetime.
        Robert A. Frost has been hunting Arizona since 1977. With 27 years of experience and over 10 years as a professional outfitter and guide, you will be sure to have a FIRST RATE hunt, as I always strive to give my clients their hunt of a lifetime.
Randy Bryant is another Arizona native. He lives in Northern Arizona and also owns his own Outfitting business. Randy & myself guide for each other. He is a top notch guide and I'm pleased to have him on my Team. I book lion hunts for him anytime I can pass them his way. He has been guiding for over 12 years, and I can tell you first hand, Randy is an excellent tracker. He specializes in Mtn. Lion and also has taken many fine Elk, Mule Deer and Antelope.   Pat Samford is an Arizona native and grew up in Coconino County. He is an excellent hunter and as your guide you will find out why I have dubbed him "Eagle Eye" Sheep, Elk & Deer are his specialty. His personal favorite is a mule deer he took himself in unit 10 that scored 205 5/8 B&C non-typical.

(On Fully Guided Hunts)

If you don't see the type of hunt that you or your group are looking for, we can custom tailor a hunt for you or your group. Although we don't guarantee a kill, our hunts are strictly fair chase... the "real thing". Above all, go on a hunt with a positive attitude, with the outlook that you are going to have a a great time, meet some new friends, see some awesome country, and experience a quality hunt.

However, the entire Deposit may be applied toward a future hunt.

We recommend 'Wildlife Creations Taxidermy' in Glendale, AZ. Wildlife Artist Mark Plunkett in my book is the best you will find here in Arizona. I know him personally and his work is exceptional. We can drop off your cape and antlers with him at no charge.

All big game tags are issued on a drawing basis. Currently only Archery Deer, Fall Bear, and Mountain Lion tags are available over the counter.
