Bio

Billy’s career as a professional outdoorsman began at the ripe age of 8, trapping muskrats on Lightning Creek near his family’s dairy farm. Before he was of legal hunting age he knew the only place that could satisfy his craving for adventure was Alaska. After high school he headed to the Last Frontier with the hope of becoming a big game hunting guide. During his two-year apprenticeship in the bush he jokes he was a “human mule”, but 19 years later he is now one of the most renowned and respected guides in the industry, leading hunters from around the world across the entire state of Alaska for up to 120 days each year for brown bear, grizzly bear, Dall sheep, moose, caribou, and wolf. Since his humble beginnings, Billy has also guided elk, mule deer, and bighorn sheep hunters in Colorado and Idaho and personally hunted on four continents. Billy’s passion and success still stem from his childhood yearning for adventure. An author, public speaker, and producer of The Modern Day Mountain Man DVD series, Billy’s focus is always on the “experience, not the ego”.

Favorite Hunt

My favorite place to hunt is the Alaska Peninsula for brown bear. There is no animal more fascinating and no land more primal. The balance between life and death is so palpable, I don’t know of anywhere else in the world where one can learn more about the balance of nature and how the death of one organism brings life to another. Couple the countless natural phenomena one witnesses in bear country with fact that hunting a trophy boar brown bear is the toughest and most technical hunt I know of, there’s no question it’s my favorite. A brown bear hunt on the Alaska Peninsula will test your body, mind, skill, and stir your soul like no other.
