We work hard to place our clients on the best hunts with the best outfitters, but don’t take our word for it!
Hey Shad –
Just wanted to give a big shout out to you for setting me up on one hell of a dream hunt!
Because of your informative email updates and quality of follow up communication, I was
able to book this last minute New Zealand Red Stag hunt! In a matter of just a few days my dream
hunt became a reality and I was on a plane to New Zealand. The hunt was an absolute blast and
lived up to every expectation! Your Outfitter provided 1st class outfitting services! I give
both you and the outfitter nothing but praise for a job well done! I look forward to booking more hunts with you!
Keep those emails coming!
One happy hunter,
Specialty Adventure Services’ client – Cyndie F whose son took this great Wyoming Speed Goat in August 2017
Here’s long time Specialty Adventure Services Client Kevin G with his fantastic free range New Zealand Red Stag taken March 2018.
Long time client Jay Y. with a fantastic British Columbia Stone Sheep he harvested while hunting with one of the best horseback sheep Outfitters in BC in August 2018
Great client and friend Mike P, took advantage of a discounted last minute Alaska Dall Sheep hunt to fulfill his dream of taking a Trophy Dall Sheep. He harvested this ram in August 2018.
We officially have good friend and client Chris E on a roll, he started off Spring 2018 with a huge Vancouver Island Black Bear, then he was off to Wyoming where he took this great Pronghorn. We will have more pics soon as he is headed to hunt Elk, MuskOx, Arctic Island Caribou, Woodland Bison and Wolf over the next 7 months.
Greg and I have been trying to find just the right Dall Sheep hunt for him for the last couple years. Well his dream came true when I ended up with a cancellation hunt with an Outfitter who does an excellent job with Archery hunters. 3rd day of his hunt, it all came together when he was able to put an arrow in this fantastic Dall Sheep at 34 yards.
Here is my client Jay with a 204″ Marco Polo Ram. Not only did I help him get this hunt booked, but I ended up going over and guiding him as well. We killed this amazing ram the second day in camp. He went on to take a representative Mid-Asian Ibex as well.
Thank you for assisting us with arranging our African Hunting Safari of a Lifetime.
The outfitter you suggested was outstanding, they were so welcoming and amazing with our children. Having never been to Africa before and taking our young family, we felt very safe and relaxed. They opened their home as though we were part of their family. They went above and beyond what was required as they arranged extra activities for our children (and kept them entertained) that were outside of what we had paid for.
The Outfitter’s ranch (free range) had a large number and variety of animals, so you never knew what you were going to see next. They also have access to a number of other ranches in the area, so if they don’t have all the trophies on your list, it was just a short drive to another ranch that had what you were looking for. They made it possible for me to take all the animals I hoped for in one trip.
If anyone is looking to go to Africa for a solo or family hunt I highly recommend Specialty Adventure Services.

Jay Yokomizo Hunt Report:
Species: Stone sheep
Date taken: 08/19/2018
Location: British Columbia
Trophy size: 35”x14” left horn 34.5”x14”right horn.
Outfitter/ Guide: Specialty Adventure Services – Certified Outfitter
Guide: Wade Jensen
Highlights: I have to say the highlight of this hunt was the sheer amount of animals we glassed up everyday we hunted. We saw everything including grizzly bears, moose, mountain caribou and sheep every day. My guide Wade Jensen was excellent, he is very knowledgeable and patient and took great care of me.
This was a horseback hunt and the wranglers and horses were outstanding. Over all the Outfitter and the entire experience was outstanding I cannot say enough good things about their operation. I would recommend Specialty Adventure Services and this Outfitter to anyone that is looking for a world class stone sheep hunt.
Suggestion for hunters: If you book one of these Sheep hunts I would suggest that you get out and climb as many steep hills as possible or at the least get on a stair stepper as much as you can so you are prepared to climb these mountains. The Outfitter’s horses are amazing and can help get you a lot of places, but even they can only take you so far up the mountain, then it is up to you.
My son, son-in-law and I were looking for a guide to go on an elk hunt for my 60th birthday. A coworker of mine put us in contact with Shad. I told Shad that we were looking for a trip that was going to have a high success rate because it was the first elk hunt that any of us had gone on. Shad certainly delivered!
We were setup with an outfitter in Idaho for an early season cow hunt. Shad mentioned he had been a part of this hunt personally in the past and knew of the plentiful opportunities that would come with it. We arrived around 2:30 one Sunday and by 7:30 that evening I already had my tag filled. My son-in-law filled his tag the following morning and my son finished off the trip Tuesday morning with the final cow of the hunt.
Shad set us up with exactly what we were hoping for and we will certainly call him again for our next trip.
Jake Fife Specialty Adventure Services Services Testimonial
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this testimonial for Shad Wheeler with Specialty Adventure Services. I was fortunate enough to be in contact with him regarding my 2015 Elk hunt!
Let me back up a bit… Here I am, a non-resident who had just found out I drew a coveted Bull Elk tag in the beautiful state of Idaho, in a unit I had never even stepped foot in. Uncharted territory so to speak. With the excitement that instantly filled my body of knowing I had drawn the tag, the reality soon hit me knowing that it would be extremely difficult getting time away from home and work to put in the time I felt necessary to scout and learn the area, which was a 6 ½ hour drive.
Let the work begin. I spent countless hours and many nights surfing the web, talking to people, looking over google maps, numerous drainages and water sources. I was trying to absorb any and all info that anyone was willing to send my way. I was receiving a great deal of info, but I always found myself wanting more! It was then I decided to shoot an e-mail over to Shad with Specialty Adventure Services as he and I had talked hunting previously and he always had good things to say. He e-mailed me back the very next day with some info, and told me he would give a call to a buddy and see if he could get some more specifics for me. Already pleased with the info he had given me, I was impressed he went out of his way to try and find some more specific info out for me. Not a day later I had another e-mail from Shad with an area, a gate key and a couple road names, at this point I felt pretty confident and dialed in having never stepped foot in this unit!
My hunting partner and I showed up four days before opening day, and it wasn’t until the day before the opener that we decided to go scout this area Shad had pointed out for me. Elk. Elk everywhere. And bulls, lots of them! We decided after that morning we were definitely coming back the next day for the opener! Opening morning rolled around and as soon as it started to get light we were in the thick of them. We had bulls bugling in what seemed like every patch of trees all around us, and a couple fighting down the ridge below us. We were able to pick out a shooter, put a spot and stalk on him and with a well-placed 250 yard shot I was able to harvest this beautiful 6X6 Bull the opening morning of the hunt! A hunting trip I will never forget, that wouldn’t have been possible without Shad and Specialty Adventure Services.
I highly recommend these guys to any and all hunters out there who don’t need secret spots or honey holes, but just need help putting a guided hunt together or who just need to be pointed in the right direction every now and then! Thanks again Shad and Specialty Adventure Services for such spectacular services!
