Sam McCuin "IT WAS A DIFFERENT TIME"  Hunting has been a way of life for me even before I was old enough to carry a gun.  My dad liked to shoot a few ducks and I can remember sitting in the back seat of our old Hudson stroking the feathers of a hen bluebill that he had shot.  I don't remember exactly what I was thinking, other than admiring its beauty.  By the time I was ten I was trusted with a gun and that year was able to head out into the woods alone.  It was a different time; youngsters grew up quickly and developed woodsman skills and independence.  I paid close attentions to my  surroundings and  ventured far enough to get "misplaced" a few times, but always found my way back to camp.  

As teenagers my brother and I always got up before school and hunted whatever was in season, bringing our guns to school and leaving them in our unlocked car; again, it was a different time.  

Today, introducing a youngster to God's great outdoors and watching them become dedicated, responsible hunters is truly a blessing.  Families who hunt together develop bonds that last a lifetime.      EMAIL Sam

Ruth McCuin  I DIDN'T GROW UP HUNTING, but when I met Sam I decided I would like to give it a try.  Fellow rabbit hunters were astonished to find me hunting snowshoe hare with Sam and his hounds when I was eight months pregnant.  

Some 40 plus years later and hunting is still a way of life for us. I have been blessed to be able to successfully hunt for brown bear, black bear, mule deer, whitetails, pronghorns, mountain loins, mountain goats, elk, moose, red stag, fallow buck, caribou, coyotes, turkeys, ducks, and pheasants!

Hunting with Sam, my sons, daughter, nieces, nephews, and other family members has brought me much pleasure.  Time spent in the woods with my sons and daughter, and now with my grandsons, as they have learned to hunt is priceless, and I look forward to sharing the same moments with my  granddaughters soon. How blessed I have been to co-host The Outfitter.  I have met wonderful people in all types of hunting situations, travelled North America and beyond, shared in the excitement of being with first time hunters, and created a legacy that I am proud to pass on.     EMAIL Ruth

Bret McCuin Where Bret hunts, the less he has to carry, the better. As a skilled tracker, he likes nothing more than going into the most remote areas and taking the track of a huge buck. This is what led him to develop The Hunter’s Smart Seat®

In country where other see impossibilites, Bret sees opportunity! He has taken several buck over 200 pounds, field dressed. Bret has the ability to find the hideouts of big bucks in nearly impenetrable swamps and those that prefer high mountain ridges.


Bret loves the challenge of the wilderness and has successfully guided elk hunters in the Thorofare of Wyoming.  He is proficient with archery, muzzleloader, and rifle and is now passing on these hunting skills to his daughter, Caitlin.

Marc Campbell lives to hunt whitetail deer but prefers to let the deer come to him.  Marc has killed some beautiful bucks.  He has the patience of Job, and knows from pre-scouting if there are big bucks in the area.  He will sit through a snowstorm, completely camouflaged with the white powder, only to surprise a huge racked whitetail at point-blank range. 

Whether it is for deer, turkeys or waterfowl, he hunts with more desire than most, and thereby is more successful than most. Marc is now passing this hunting tradition on to his son, Cole ,and daughter, Kerri.
