Overall Impression: The best outfitter I have delt with, bar none!

Jim Roche, and Magnum Guide Service, offer the highest quality outfitting I have experienced. I have hunted with them in New Mexico (antelope) and Texas (whitetails, javelina, turkeys, predators, and exotics), on numerous occasions. Jim also hunts in Wyoming (elk, mule deer), and Alaska (bear, moose, caribou, etc.) Jim is the most professional outfitter I have ever delt with. He, and his wife Melony, are on top of all the issues related to a hunt - from the research to booking to the hunting experience. There is never a need to try and figure out what you need to bring, or IF they have you scheduled - information flows from their operation. You get timely contracts, trip planners, etc. Lodgings range from good, to great, depending upon the hunting location. Food is always excellent, with plenty of it. Jim has the game! It is great to be able to see a lot of quality game during the course of a hunt - all free-range (with exception of exotics). Check out his web site - www.magnumguideservice.com There are plenty of recent photos to document their success, and it is a great web site as far as being able to get all the information. I may sound like a walking advertisement, but after hunting all over North America, I have come to the conclusion you won't find a better outfitter. I've hunted with them enough to know that there is consistency - it isn't a crap shoot. You know how good things are going to be. If for some reason there are problems (ie. poor turkey hatch), Jim will let you know. Feel free to contact me for further information. One of my favorite things to do is to hunt with Jim/Melony at Magnum. I always make sure to schedule at least one hunt a year with them, no matter what else is planned.
