Reviewer Comments: This was my first antelope hunt with Bob,I have hunted elk with Bob over the past three years. Bob runs an outstanding outfit and his guides are top notch.I filled my antelope tag 4 hours into my hunt with a great shot on a nice 16 an 1/4" goat. I highly recomend this hunt because of the great time i had and his price is fantastic!! We had 19 hunters in different locations and 19 hunters filled their tags, that's outstanding

Recommend: yes - great operation

Reviewer Comments: Bob runs the best priced quality operation of any outfitter I've ever known or hunted with. He chooses to hunt a group of no more than 6 hunters at a time, the guides are extremely knowledgeable of the areas they hunt and will put you in range of the animals. Oct 2003 we had 50% success with harvested bulls and it could have been 100% if the other guys had pulled the trigger on Bulls put it front of them. Nature/weather permitting - you'll see the animals and get your shot. Camp accomodations were above normal. Bob and his guys are great: they make you feel welcome and work their butts off for you. Get in shape - you're going to walk a lot if you want to get to the best Bulls. If you ever see Bob with his hat off -take a picture and forward it along - we'll pay a bounty for it!!

Recommend: Yes

Reviewer Comments: This hunt has big possibilities. Seven hunters only took two deer , but both where trophys (BIG 4x4's). Other hunters had their chances but for one reason or another weren't able to connect.Two different hunters missed the same 30" Buck twice.My father saw a 26"+ and a 30"+. Myself , I did not see a buck all week. The weather was bad , and it put the deer to bed for nearly four days. Lots of rain and snow made it very muddy , especially at the camp which consisted of wall tents. And even though the deer didn't cooperate the guides where top notch. They did everything possible to put us on deer and the last two days I saw dozens of does. Bob is a top notch guide and a great guy. His guides know what they are doing and they are very familiar with the area. The cost of this hunt is very reasonable. We stayed in wall tents and had propane heaters. All of the hunting is done on public land. 2hunters / guide and we traveled in 4x4's. Be prepared to cover a lot of ground by foot if you expect to see any game ,but if you are looking for a "Giant Muley" give Bob a try , You may have more luck than I did. Zone 2B in northwest NM has some real trophies.

Overall Impression: Great

Recommend: Yes

Reviewer Comments: We hunted mussle loader season and the 2002 dry weather affected the hunting conditions we still heard bulls every day. Our guide did an excellant job and called a bull in for us. Bob runs an ecellant camp and only puts 4 hunters in a camp so you are not over crowdwed. You should be in good shape for this hunt because you will cover a lot of territory.

New Mexico Hunting Information

New Mexico is one of the top destinations for trophy Elk and Antelope hunting. Draw odds can be tough depending on the unit but landowner tags are also available for those who don't draw. Mule Deer are plentiful but generally of average size. Only a couple of units and reservations consistently produce big muleys.

British Columbia Hunting Information

British Columbia is an excellent hunting destination that offers a wide variety of game species. Vast wilderness areas and pristine coastlines provide world class adventure hunting for those seeking that trip of a lifetime. BC is arguably best known for big coastal black bears, Canada moose, grizzly bear, mountain lion, Dall sheep and Stone sheep. Hunters can book a hunt with an outfitter and avoid the license drawing process common in most U.S. states.
