Hunting Guides: Deer, Hog, Bird & Fowl

Guides share the most successful methods of hunting and information about the area, and teach the proper methods of dressing game and preparing trophies for mounting. These committed hunting guides maintain the philosophy of "waste not, want not" and it shows in every thing they do. South Central Texas boasts Boone and Crocket Whitetail Deer, Hog and Javalina, Turkey, Pheasant, Quail and waterfowl.

Birding/Nature Guides: Wildlife Tours

Bird watching can be as simple as enjoying birds that come to your backyard bird feeder. Or it can be as complex as learning bird songs by ear, or traveling far to catch a glimpse of a special feathered friend. CBGA bird and nature guides are a gentler breed with a sincere yearning to learn more about migratory and area bird wildlife and freely share their knowledge. Their membership in the Coastal Bend Guides Association proves their strong commitment to the preservation of the area birds. You'll see things you've never seen before!
