Our Business Philosophy
In 2001 Brandt Williams started facilitating hunting and fly-fishing trips for himself and close friends. In 2004 he took that experience and started Hook-n-Hunt with the idea of providing a quality based business for facilitating primarily big game hunts and fly-fishing trips. In 2013 we doubled our staff with the addition Tyler, Brandt's son, to work (& hunt) part time that now makes Hook-n-Hunt a second generation business.
Hook-n-Hunt has developed a unique approach to providing these services. We want the client to have a complete and total understanding of the hunt or fishing trip being booked; including budgets, schedules, travel arrangements, hunting/fishing expectations, equipment and the outfitter to name a few. hook-n-hunt lets each client know up front the name of the outfitter. We have found that our clients should know the outfitter before the arrangements are finalized. Therefore, we encourage the client to personally visit the outfitter website.
Hook-n-Hunt works with each outfitter in providing an affordable scheduled payment plan that is not usually provided as standard “fare” by other outfitters. This allows the client to book trips well in advance, securing the best time slot and pricing. hook-n-hunt encourages their clients to take advantage of this by booking their hunts/trips at least one to two years in advance.
hook-n-hunt builds their foundation of partnering outfitters via personal hunting and fishing trips. Our philosophy is that we are the best reference we can provide a client when selecting an outfitter. Hook-n-Hunt is also developing a list of outfitters and guides compiled through reference verification.
Hook-n-Hunt is not a high volume business. We are not in business to be the biggest by virtue of volume (quantity). We are in business to provide you with what we weren’t able to get elsewhere and that is a quality personalized base of services for the discriminating outdoors person that understands the value of working with a Professional Big Game and Fly-Fishing Facilitator.
Hook-n-Hunt’s staff has more than 40 years of combined experience in the field of Big Game Hunting and Fly Fishing. Among the locations we have personally hunted/fished include: South Africa, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Colorado, Virginia, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Tennessee, Montana, South Dakota, Maine, Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia, Newfoundland, Quebec, Manitoba, Ohio, Saskatchewan, Idaho, Tennessee and Texas in addition to our regionally based hunting & fishing locations in the Carolinas.
Hook-n-Hunt maintains a 2 bedroom timeshare unit for rent that sleeps up to 3 men comfortably or 6 total the last week of September & first week of October of each year at Jackson Hole, WY for those wanting to Fly-Fish & kick back comfortably both at the same time.
