Why I launched Specialty Adventure Services:
Welcome, my name is Shad Wheeler and I am the founder of Specialty Adventure Services a Professional Hunt Consulting Firm and Purveyor of Global Hunts and Adventures. Any Hunt…Any Where… No Problem.
I am a Husband, a Dad to 4 amazing kids, an entrepreneur and a hunting fanatic. I am blessed to have been on some amazing hunts including Stone Sheep Hunts, Bighorn Sheep Hunts, Dall Sheep Hunts, Desert Bighorn Sheep hunts, Mountain Goat Hunts, Whitetail Deer Hunts, Mule Deer Hunts, Elk Hunts as well as Brown Bear Hunts, Moose Hunts, African Safaris and even Marco Polo Sheep Hunts. Better yet, I have been fortunate to guide a number of these hunts as well.
So as far as hunting consultants and booking agents go, I am in a very unique position to leverage a highly diverse set of skills, knowledge and experiences to help my clients find, book and experience the absolute best hunts on the planet. I am committed to sharing my passion, knowledge and experience with you, to make your next Global Hunting Adventure the stuff of legends.
How did I get here?
You know, I get asked quite often how I got started doing what I do…in all honesty I got started doing what I do by first getting off track and kind of losing my way. I actually have my Juris Doctorate as well as an MBA. With those hefty titles in tow I spent 11 years chasing dollars instead of chasing my dreams.
Luckily my wife could see that my life needed to head a different direction. She encouraged me to quit a career where I was focused on making someone else’s dreams come true and instead, focus on making my dreams come true. Long story short, I quit the corporate world and rolled the dice. Next thing you know I am guiding elk, deer and pronghorn hunts in Wyoming. After 90+ days of guiding, I am happy to report that all of my clients went home happy.
When the hunting season was over I had the opportunity to go to work for a booking agency. In the process I learned what I liked and didn’t like about how they conducted business. Once I had a clear idea of why and how I wanted to launch my own hunt consulting firm, I went for it. So, in early 2017 I took my business skills, hunting knowledge and guiding experience and started building my dream life. And that, is how Specialty Adventure Services was born.
What we do:
I started Specialty Adventure Services to share my passion, knowledge and experience with people just like you. My goal is to make sure that each and every one of my clients experience the absolute best global hunts and adventures. I am truly blessed to do what I do. I get to help clients like you put together world class hunting adventures all around the globe. I work with my clients on everything from hog hunts in Texas, to Stone Sheep hunts in British Columbia or the Big 5 over in Africa and much, much more.
One of the unintended blessings I discovered in the process of living out my dreams, is that I am actually inspiring others to pursue their dreams. I speak with a lot of folks who find themselves living a life of tragic boredom and frustration. So, to hear from someone that I inspired them to take a leap of faith and pursue their passion is awesome. Because to pursue your passion in life is never a risk, because the moment you do, you will find you are truly living life and not just surviving it.
Specialty Adventure Services and our agents are committed to getting to know you; your hunting goals; your timeline; and your budget so that we can effectively educate, inform and assist you in booking and experiencing the absolute best hunts around the world. You will see that Specialty Adventure Services has put together truly professional hunt consulting services that include useful resources, membership programs and a Global Network of Professional Hunters, Hunting Guides and Outfitters to provide you with World Class Adventures anywhere you dream to go.
