"When we talk about where we want to hunt, my family regulary request West Texas with Desert Safaris."
~Thomas J. Cunningham-
"I have known Hunter and his wife for more than 7 years. He is a man of fine character and unquestioned integrity. I have heard Craig Boddington recommend him on his television shows, but I know the man personally and I could not recommend any outfitter higher."
"Thanks to you and your staff we had a great time in west TX! It amazed me at how organized your operation was and the top notch caliber of people you have working for you, now I know why Jenny had such a good time last year. Jenny and I both understand how hard it is to make things all work together during hunting season. You and everyone that works for you obviously have the outfitting business figured out."
~Robert & Jenny Sanders-
