“Dear Randy,
Thanks for a great 2018 bear hunt. It was my first but it was awesome. Got to shoot my first bear. You and your guides, baits and tree stand were professionally done. Tree stands were very safe and comfortable to sit for six hours. I hunt a lot out of tree stands and you do it right. Your ability to track my game, drag it out, gut and skin, and butcher it was top notch. Following your instructions, helped me to have a successful hunt! Thanks again. Hope to see you soon.”  Paul

“Dear Randy,
I would like to thank you again for your exceptional service in providing me with a successful and memorable bobcat hunt. I am thoroughly impressed by your knowledge of the vast northwoods and along with your dogs make for a lethal combination. Hunting behind dogs was a first for me and I found it to be far more challenging than anticipated. Though the weather conditions were not ideal I appreciate how you took the time to pass on smaller cat tracks to allow me the opportunity at a trophy animal. It goes to show that you appreciate and understand what a once in a lifetime hunt means to your clients.

I should receive a bear tag in the next couple of years and when I do I will be contacting you!”
