Guide Profiles

  • Daniel Boone
    • Age: 25
    • From Carrizo Springs, Tx.
    • Guide Experience: 13 Years (4 Years at Faith Ranch)
    • I began hunting Whitetail deer at the age of 7. Having been raised on the Faith Ranch (among others) hunting became a learning experience at an early age.
    • I began to follow my father and learned to judge, score, and manage deer. My first guiding experience came at the age of 12 on Bandera Ranch. Since then I have guided on as many as 6 ranches across South Texas. Aside from guiding, I have my own business as a Tile Setter. My company is called DB Tile Masters.
    • I look forward to beginning this season and helping
      others get the big game.
