Client Story: Kevin Moynahan Tells It All

Hey Sy and Ambrosia, 

This will be my 5th year hunting with SNS, and there is never a dull moment. Recently, I was hunting with my guide, Lex Dyer, looking for a freak antelope (which, we had spotted). Although we began our stalk, we were not able to get on the antelope. But, on our way back, Lex spotted a beautiful antelope, only 200 yards away. He told me, “Shoot that antelope! It’s a very nice one.” We were side hillin[...]

October 2017 Hunting Update from Wyoming

It’s hard to believe that October has come and gone. We’ve had a fun month of hunting in Wyoming, including some memorable antelope hunts, mule deer hunts and elk hunts.
