Dagestan Tur – Azerbaijan
Once again my hunt with Yogi and the local team did not disappoint. I had the privilege of experiencing a beautiful environment, enjoyed great local hospitality, made an awesome friend and got me a cracking trophy Tur. Thank you JR Hunting and see you next year!!
Buffalo – Mozambique
We are satisfied! Nice camp and good food, great area, walk and stalk hunting like we wanted, great guides and trackers and awesome trophy quality! The PH was a great guy and very skilled in the important situations! Camp staff did a great job! And we were also able to experience many things apart from the hunt itself.
Buffalo – Mozambique
If my memory is correct it was late April and the year was 2000 and I was Yogi’s very first client to guide solo. We were after one of them monster New Zealand fallows and Yogi did not disappoint. Fast forward 18 years and Yogi did it again, accept this time it was in Mozambique. You could not have asked for a better put together trip and that was a direct result of Yogi and his professionalism. The trip was everything he said it would be and the icing on the cake was a big old Dagga Boy. I could not have asked for anything more and being my first trip to Africa, Yogi made it all work smooth as silk. In my book, Yogi comes highly recommended.

Black Bear – British Columbia
During spring 2018 the hunt I had dreamt of for many years finally came true. I scouted the internet for options and quickly decided to chose JR Hunting as the organiser of my hunt, something I do not regret! Yogi always answered my many questions very quickly.
At the end of May, my 12 year old son and I traveled to Canada, where we met the very skilled outfitter who guided us during our hunt in some breathtaking terrain. Luck was on our side and we managed to harvest a bear each, one black bear of about 7.2 feet and one colorphase cinnamon black bear. A memory of a lifetime! If you are considering black bear hunting in Canada, I can highly recommend JR Hunting!

Buffalo – South Africa
Thank you for a great and exciting hunting experience in South Africa.
Buffalo – South Africa
I had the great pleasure to spend a week together with JR Hunting in the Limpopo province of South Africa. My big dream for over 10 years now had been to hunt a big old Dagga Boy on foot in vast areas.
During the hunting week, we had a full moon and were also affected by a late rainy season which led to the game being active at night and resting in the thick bush during the day. More than once we were at only 20 yards from the buffalo, but due to the thick vegetation we could not make out the animals at all.
But then one early morning, our PH saw a piece of horn sticking out of a bush about 400 yards away and our brilliant trackers took us around the mountain and right to those buffalo. It was in the early morning hours during southern Africa’s sunrise when it happened. An old Dagga Boy met my .470 NE bullet and did not make it very far after that. My dream had finally come true!
The camaraderie, the food and accommodation were absolutely amazing and I can truly recommend you guys to book with JR Hunting. My highest expectations were met at all times.
Because of that I have already booked another trip with JR Hunting to hunt this exact same area next year. Furthermore, I hope to be able to hunt Mozambique with them this fall as well.
Plains Game – South Africa
This hunt with JR Hunting in South Africa was my first hunt ever. I had no idea what to expect.
But heck what an experience it was. Yogi and JR Hunting are very professional from start to finish, the same goes for all the PHs in camp who taught me a great understanding of hunting with lots of respect for game and nature.
I have now turned into a hardcore hunter and I am already thinking about my next trip with you guys.
Thank you very much Yogi and JR Hunting.
Plains Game – Namibia
I am still a beginner when it comes to hunting, but the interest has been there all along in the background. I contacted Yogi on Facebook in November 2016 when I saw a picture of one of his cool JR Hunting caps. When he told me we would get one each if we booked a hunt with him, he truly got my attention. Our discussion went from black bear hunts in BC to hunting in Spain and finally ended up at hunting in Namibia, something that has fascinated me for a long time already because of the African continents variety in hunt-able game. After a few back and forth, my partner and I finally decided to book with JR Hunting for a hunt in Namibia. This was to be our first hunting trip abroad ever and we owe a great thank you to Yogi, who organised everything without any hassles and always answered our questions right away.
Then finally April 2018 came along and we boarded our flight to Namibia. When we arrived in camp, Yogi welcomed us personally and after getting organised in our rooms we went to shoot our rifles. Our lucky day was hunting day 2 when we managed to harvest a beautiful oryx, a great kudu as well as a red hartebeest. What a day, truly an experience of a lifetime!
Namibia over all, I can only say I would like to live here!
Plains Game – Namibia
A big thank you for everything to JR Hunting and Yogi for a fantastic trip and really great hunting experiences in Namibia and also for a very well organised hunt! We can highly recommend JR Hunting as a booking agent if you want to experience great hunting in Namibia. We are already thinking about coming back here in the future.

Mountain Lion – Nevada
My wife and I have met Yogi before on a previous hunt, but never got the privilege of actually hunting with him. At the SCI show we stopped by to say hello and to see where he was last. He said he just finished hunting mountain lions just a few hours away. Curious we had to get the details as we didn’t realise it was a big thing in Nevada. After our chat we instantly booked a mountain lion Hunt with Yogi.
Everything went very smooth for us from the day we decided to do this hunt until the day we arrived. Any questions and concerns we had Yogi answered in a very timely manner. We flew into Las Vegas and he made the 4 hour drive to pick us up to make sure it was him and not someone we didn’t know. This was after he had hunted all day long and could have easily turned in for the night and sent someone else. The hunt over exceeded any expectations that we could have ever had. It was very rewarding and something we had to work for, but was a hunt we will never forget.
Yogi isn’t just a guide and business owner, but he is someone who cares about your success and wants you to harvest the most mature animal. You will book your hunt with Yogi as a client, but you will leave your hunt with Yogi as a life long friend and wanting to book more world wide hunts with him. I know we are looking forward to our next adventure that we can hunt with JR Hunting. Book with JR Hunting and you won’t be disappointed.

Moose – British Columbia
When I had made up my mind to travel to Canada to hunt for moose, I chose JR Hunting. A decision that I am very happy about. Having all these questions about the trip & hunt and being from Sweden, it was very nice to be able to communicate and receive information in Swedish so that I would not miss anything important. Yogi always replied fast and provided me with the necessary information in a very professional way. When I arrived in British Columbia, I was very well taken care of by the local staff.
If you want to experience breathtaking scenery, I can only recommend this trip. To be able to experience the full on moose rut at close range with big bulls fighting over cows is one of the greatest things I have ever seen. Many many thanks JR Hunting for the awesome experience as well as my fantastic trophy bull!
Mountain Goat – British Columbia
My goat hunt with Yogi was terrific! I was treated not as a woman, but respected as a fellow Hunter. Yogi is a top notch guide & kept my hunt & safety as top priority. I have hunted with him in the past & will for sure in the future. During my 10 day hunt I had no reason to question his abilities or his knowledge as my guide. I would recommend him with out reservation. Awesome Experience!!

Dagestan Tur – Azerbaijan
Mountain hunting for sheep and goats is one of our biggest passions.
This was our third trip with Yogi, we have already hunted with him in New Zealand and the US.
When you book a trip with JR Hunting everything gets looked after perfectly, from start to finish. And in Azerbaijan this was no different. We met up with Yogi at the airport in Istanbul and continued on to Baku where we were greeted by his local partners who helped us declare our rifle without any hassle.
After a night in Baku we headed for the mountains, and it wasn’t for long when we arrived in camp at about 2200 meters. With an amazing view from camp. Here we stayed in nice small tents with a very friendly and skilled team serving us delicious food and entertainment.
Our guides were talented and we were treated to an exciting hunt in the most amazing mountain scenery; this cannot be described, one has to experience it to understand. After a physically challenging hunt, we harvested a very nice tur. Everything from the animal was taken care of, literally everything. This was very interesting to watch.
After the hunt, we had a couple of days with great sightseeing in Sheki and Baku before we traveled back home.
We would like to strongly recommend JR Hunting and Yogi, whether you want to go to Azerbaijan or another one of his destinations. He stands for quality and credibility and delivers on his promises. This was for sure not our last trip together with him.

Ibex Grand Slam – Spain
I made some initial enquiries after receiving a few JR Hunting newsletters and just couldn’t stop thinking about some of the possibilities. Yogi answered and quoted promptly and before long I had confidence to book a Spanish Ibex Grand Slam plus mouflon, roe deer and boar. I got my Ibex Grand Slam plus the other three trophies booked all in one trip and excellent quality trophies and outfitters. There’s really no need to try to book with outfitters directly since Yogi gets the best areas and packages set up for you upfront without any headaches. I was thrilled with my Spanish hunt and Yogi was a fun guy to have on the hunt. I have subsequently booked a Dagestan Tur, a BC hunt including Grizzly, Moose, Goat, Black bear, Mountain Reindeer, etc as well as Marco Polo in Asia. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed and if I were worried then I wouldn’t have booked with Yogi! The experience I’ve had up to now has been very good and I had a lot of fun on the hunt and now consider Yogi a friend rather than a client. I’ll keep booking with him as I collect various trophies from around the world.
