Buffalo & Croc – South Africa
This is my second time hunting with JR Hunting in Africa. We had a very successful hunt. I was able to harvest some extraordinary trophies! Yogi and Jaco the PH have become close friends. I was very impressed with the accommodations, staff and quality of the animals we encountered. I’m definitely returning soon for more great times.

Plains Game – South Africa
I met Yogi back in May and we talked about going on an African safari. Once we got the tentative dates set, Yogi literally did all the rest. I was extremely pleased how well organized the whole adventure was. He had everything organized from the trip to South Africa to the trip home everything was set for me. JR Hunting coordinated all of the details so all I had to do was enjoy the hunt.
I started out going for a Kudu and a Nyala. I harvested amazing bulls in both species. I also wanted to add trophies once I got there and this was also no problem. I cannot praise Yogi enough for setting up this incredible hunt and look forward to hunting again with JR Hunting. Truly a first class experience!

Plains Game – South Africa
We started planning my trip to South Africa at the SCI Convention and Yogi organized the hunt details with the outfitter. This was my first hunt in Africa; and a hunt of a lifetime! Seven species in all. The guide, tracker and accommodations were exceptional, and I plan to return to this beautiful land with Yogi!

Roebuck – Sweden
Hunting Roe deer in Sweden with Yogi was a fantastic experience. The scenery was beautiful and I was able to encounter a large variety of wildlife while on my hunt. Having put in a tremendous amount of time scouting before the season opened, Yogi was well prepared and knowledgeable about exactly what deer lived in the area and where to find the most mature bucks. Before my hunt began, Yogi was able to send me some images from trail cameras which really built the anticipation of my hunt. And, I was able to harvest exactly the buck that we had hoped for! Sweden is a beautiful country to tour with wonderful people and fantastic dining. It was a wonderful hunt and trip of a lifetime!

Mountain Lion – British Columbia
For me, a long-cherished dream came true with this trip. Years prior, Yogi and I first got in touch regarding hunting in British Columbia. And although I still had to let a few years of anticipation slip by, I knew that with such a special hunt as a cat hunt in a snow-covered wilderness, it takes a professional team to make things happen. I did find this crew of professionals in Yogi and his team of local guides as well as their excellent hounds.
On the very first day of the hunt, the dogs were able to tree a bobcat and thus help me to achieve my first hunting success in Canada. On the third day of the hunt, we found the tracks of a cougar early in the morning and after a breathtaking chase the dogs were able to catch up to it too. It is an indescribable feeling to approach the echoing sound of the hounds, ringing through the vast and snowy wilderness. When we finally arrived at the treed cat, we were presented with an image that will forever burn itself into my memory, a fascinating sight that leaves you speechless.
In addition to this double hunting success, I was also able to take a coyote on the fifth day of the hunt, which is certainly just as special a prey for a European hunter.
The essence of this hunt for me is an unforgettable experience, which is made up of the generous hospitality and professionalism of the outfitter, excellent hunting for fascinating game in a wonderful wilderness, very good food, excellent dog work and, last but not least, perfect organisation and support by JR Hunting.
Thank you and Waidmannsheil

Mountain Goat – British Columbia
I planned this trip almost 3 years in advance. I wanted to go with JR Hunting as I had had a great experience with them hunting ibex in Spain. Yogi handled all the information ahead of and after the trip flawlessly. We were unlucky on the moose as the cows never really came into season during our stay. But we finally managed after climbing 3 mountains to locate and find the right billy. That was an awesome experience, beautiful nature, tough hunt, magnificent scenery and great and knowledgeable guides. My childhood friend was accompanying me during the trip and we enjoyed a lot of wild game encounters together. The camp was functional and the food was great, everyone was friendly and accommodative.
Marco Polo & Ibex – Kyrgyzstan
I hunted with JR Hunting in Kyrgyzstan in August for Marco Polo and Ibex. I have known Yogi for many years now and he is a true professional in all aspects of his job. His attention to detail is amazing, the info I received before the trip was on point. And with Yogi joining me on this trip made it a truly amazing experience. To have an English speaking friend with me who was there to share the memories and also to video the hunt was a huge bonus. This way I can look back in many years and still enjoy this awesome adventure.
I’m an outfitter myself and I have dealt with many booking agents before. YOGI IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST! Do not hesitate to contact him. You will have a hunt of a lifetime and only hunt with the best.
Cheers for all your help on this trip Yogi! I could not have done it by myself, it was a blast!

Roebuck – Sweden
What an amazing experience to hunt roe deer in Sweden! My hunt took place in August during the late rut and I couldn’t be more satisfied with Yogi’s organisation. I would like to thank you and of course the local guide for an unforgettable hunting weekend, during which I was able to call and harvest this nice buck. Definitely hope to come back next year!
Plains Game – South Africa
Thanks Yogi for organising an amazing hunt in the Eastern Cape of South Africa! You made everything flow seamlessly right from start to finish. With some awesome free range hunting with top guides and lodging to go with it, it really felt like hunting with mates!! I would not hesitate in recommending JR Hunting to any of my friends and am already looking forward to my next adventure with Yogi.
Lochie (New Zealand)
Red Stag – New Zealand
I have hunted in Sweden for over 30 years and I was looking for something different this time. New Zealand caught my interest and after thorough research och chose JR Hunting for this hunt. I had high expectations before my trip and they were exceeded by miles. We hunted on approximately 20,000 acres of private land and everything was very well organized. My hosts and local guides did everything in their power to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The number of big red stags and fallow bucks that we located was extraordinary. I managed to harvest one of each.
Yogi from JR Hunting accompanied me on this hunt and he was a big part of the positive outcome. A large trust was established and more hunting trips with JR Hunting in the future are inevitable. I can highly recommend hunting in New Zealand with JR Hunting
Cougar & Wolf – British Columbia
Thank you JR for this amazing hunting trip! This was the second time we hunted with JR Hunting in British Columbia. Once again, it was a great experience! Very skilled guides, beautiful scenery, good food and great service. I had the hunting gods on my side again this trip as I was fortunate enough to take a beautiful bobcat, a huge mountain lion as well as a wolf on the last day of the hunt! This is the second hunt in a row now with JR Hunting that I have been able to harvest a wolf. Awesome! I can highly recommend JR Hunting.
Cougar – British Columbia
My dream came true. En big mature tom was harvested after a spectacular mountain hunt in the snow covered wilderness of British Columbia. This was my first trip with JR Hunting. Yogi’s philosophy “hunting with friends” was on point. Awesome guides with their great hounds who’s deep sounding barks filled the mountains with excitement and made my heart race! Everything was organized perfectly. I can highly recommend this cougar hunt in BC with JR Hunting!
Whitetail – Montana, USA
Thanks Yogi, Montana was a beautiful hunt location! The deer were plentiful and the only difficulty of this hunt was deciding which deer to harvest. Accommodations were comfortable and convenient. Local meat processor and taxidermist were nearby and reasonable. Had a great time, looking forward to hunting with you again!

Moose – British Columbia
Once again, I had the privilege to hunt moose with my friend and guide Yogi Rausch of JR Hunting in northern British Columbia. Yogi is a very experienced guide who I trust and am super happy to hunt with. I spent 10 days experiencing moose activity almost daily and because of my guide, I was blessed to harvest a beautiful bull. He made my hunt his priority and because of that and his positive attitude, I will continue to hunt with him. I highly recommend him without reservation! Great times & Great Memories!
