Adventurous Hunt

We had a good length hike, saw all the buck we were looking for, and found an excellent camp location for a fine meal and shelter placement. I couldn't have asked for a better opportunity... As any experienced hunter can attest, big game hunting is a timely excursion that requires all the stars to align. Alhough I didn't get my game with Mike, I now know where to go and how to get it done, on my own. That's what it's all about for someone who's new to the Central Coast desperately looking for that next buck, or hog, or turkey, or fill-in-the-blank! Mike can get you to the place you need to go to find your game. Who knows, maybe you'll be even more fortunate than I was and take that game on the spot. Happy trails!!!

I didn't like poison oak, noises that go bump in the night (or early morning), and not getting anything. However, i know these are all part of the package and one day I'm going to get something where Mike took me!

One shot!

We spent all day walking and checking likely deer spots. Come evening, Mike walked me up on a nice forked horn near a water hole. I had plenty of time to get the rifle up and be comfortable. I only fired one shot in two days, and nailed my first buck!

Excellent hunting experience

Sometimes you just get a hunt and sometimes you make a friend and get We jumped birds at two other spots but they flushed much too fast to get shots off.

Not Mike’s fault, but we had to work hard to find game. The terrain is hilly so a lot of up and down through brushy terrain made for a good workout. We didn’t find game until very late in the day and managed to find some birds at one of the watering spots Mike knows.

Excellent hunting experience

Mike’s slogan says it all. My experience really was “more than a hunt.” Mike knew the area well and was great company. We got to see some beautiful sites while hiking and exploring the land. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone who is thinking about going on a hunting trip!
