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.

Mountain Lion – Nevada, USA

Thanks for a great hunt and a huge cat! I’ve been hunting many years and in many countries, this was truly a great experience.
Your personal touch to this hunt is key and made it most memorable.
All the best.

Mountain Lion – Nevada, USA

I was hunting mountain lion in Nevada in January 2017 with JR Hunting and 2 local guides. It was a amazing trip in the beautiful mountains of Nevada which were covert with a lot of snow. Everything worked perfectly, good dogs and good guides that know the area in and out. We hunted for cats hard every day, but the best part was of course on day 3 when we found a fresh track of a big lion! We put the dogs on the track and then the hard work started. We had to follow the dogs for the next 5-6 hours in the mountains to catch up with the tom, in order for us to get a good shot at it at about 5 meters when the dogs had put it up in a small pine tree. It was one of the best experiences in me hunting life and that is comparing it to hunts from all over the world. I can recommend this hunt 100%! If you have a dream of hunting a mountain lion, this is the place to go. Everything was perfect!

Mountain Goat – British Columbia

Even though I had been on two previous hunts in British Columbia with different outfitters, my ever-lasting wish to harvest a mountain goat had not been realised. Despite being unsuccessful, I kept searching for another outfitter and ended up finding JR Hunting. I contacted Yogi Rausch looking for another mountain goat hunt. After a few emails and some information exchange, I knew I wanted to use JR Hunting for the next trip. I booked a mountain goat hunt with JR Hunting because the information provided was solid and the pictures and videos really impressed me. Yogi always answered my emails right away and was very helpful with providing detailed information. This made me look forward to our hunt together already as soon as I had booked it.
Upon arrival in Canada, I was picked up by Yogi on time at my hotel and we headed straight for camp. Unfortunately, the weather was bad and it snowed and was foggy for the first few days which left us with no chance to hunt at all. On day 5, we could finally attempt our first stalk. During the day, we spotted a group of nannies and kids as well as a few single animals. We climbed higher and Yogi found a billy bedded up high. We moved in closer and I could feel the adrenaline building up before Yogi gave me the go-ahead. Due to the open terrain, it ended up being a long shot, but the billy dropped in its tracks. It was already late in the day, so we had to hurry. But before we started skinning and butchering the animal, Yogi managed to take some great pictures as well as some video.
We only made it back to camp late that night, but everybody was still up and really excited wanting to congratulate me on my trophy. We celebrated for a while and told the other guys about our successful day.
For me this was an amazing hunting adventure – thanks to a great guide.
Once again Yogi, a big thank you for a great guided experience and all the help!
JR Hunting with their team and the professional assistance I can highly recommend.
Thank you very much!

Moose – British Columbia

Thanks a bunch Yogi for making my birthday gift to myself for my 40th birthday such a great experience! Top-notch effort and skills mixed with lots of searching and hiking made this trip complete when I was able to harvest my first ever BC trophy. To top it of at real close range after calling the bull in. Just the views and scenery made me speechless! Accommodations and food were excellent and everybody was very friendly!
This trip, I can recommend 100% to everybody else!
I will come back again in search for more trophies.

Roebuck – Sweden

What a great job Yogi did from all the scouting of roe bucks pre-season to the organisation of the hunt! I could not have asked for a better guide/outfitter and I was welcomed into his family’s lake house with open arms. The food was amazing as was everything else!
Thanks Yogi for making my time in Sweden one to remember!
U rock 🙂

Dagestan Tur – Azerbaijan

My tur hunt 2016 was a blast!
I booked this hunt at the start of the year with Yogi. I told him, I wanted a hunt that was great value for money and an amazing experience with some hard hunting. Well, this was beyond expectations!
Yogi did an amazing job from start to finish with having all the paper work needed to even coming along on the hunt with me. WOW!
He also filmed the hunt and I just received a copy of my video! Even better to be able to look back and experience it over and over again.
I am going back for sure!
Thanks again Yogi!

Plains Game – Namibia

Thank you for a great trip to Namibia!
My hunt in the remote and wild northern part of the country was very successful and exciting. I am very pleased that I was able to take nice trophies of kudu, eland and zebra among others. Especially hunting on foot and tracking the animals in this beautiful terrain was an incredible experience.
The hospitality in this place, beautiful camp, great food and variety of hunting opportunities in this stunning wilderness made for a great experience and safari.
I am already thinking of returning here one day soon.

Mountain Goat – British Columbia

It had always been my wish for my 60th birthday to hunt for mountain goat in the wilderness of British Columbia. With Yogi Rausch I had a good feeling about realizing my dream of a nice billy. After plenty of questions and quick answers, I booked my hunt through him. The fact that he accompanied me as a guide on my hunt also was a great bonus. In BC everything was arranged as discussed. Yogi told us we would hunt in a new part of the hunting area, an area where most likely nobody had hunted before. The autumn scenery and the endless wilderness with valleys and mountains was an unforgettable experience. And so were the sightings of many grizzly bears and other species as well. Everybody involved in this hunt did their utmost to help us and after a tough and exhausting mountain hunt I had reached my goal. A heavy 11-year-old billy had hit the dirt. I want to wish the whole crew continued success and thank you very much for your friendship!
