Fall 2019 Muzzleloader bull elk - Elk 3-227 New Mexico

My guide, Jay Jaramillo, did an awesome job getting me onto a great bull of a lifetime. His years of experience and knowledge of this unit was very evident. My first muzzle loader 3-227 hunt was a success that was fueled with great food prepared by our camp cook, Jeff. Thank you Dan for setting up a lifelong memorable hunt!! I would highly recommend! Thanks again, Martin Malneritch


Archery Elk - Arizona

Just finished up a awesome Archery Elk Hunt. With Dan in New Mexico and had the time of my life. Ridgeline outfitters has top notch guides, great clean accommodations and a awesome cook. Dan worked extremely hard and had us on tons of elk every morning and afternoon. Got nothing but positive things to say about Ridgeline outfitters. I already booked hunts with Dan for next year and will continue to book with Dan. I highly recommend you book with Ridgeline outfitters and you will experience the time of your life. I know I did and have a great bull to top of a great experience. Thanks again Ridgeline outfitters and can’t wait until next year !

My husband bought a antelope hunt for me and my son for August 17th to the 19th with Dan . He had great reviews so everything seemed to be great but as the date came closer Dan called and said he couldn’t make it do to having a baby . At this point I became very skeptical on how our hunt was going to turn out . We had been told we would have a new guild name David . As the trip came near we received a lot of phone calls from David to get information about us and to let us know what to bring and what to expect. We came in a few days early and David took us scouting and it was great . He was one of the best guides a person could ask for !! He made us feel like we had been friends for years had a lot of laughs and Just good old fashion bull shitting . He took very good care of us and probably needs a new truck . A 3 day hunt ended a few hours into the first morning hunt . We filled both tags do to David being on his game ... I’m sure Dan is a great guide and we couldn’t have been more happy then we were hunting with David . An absolutely great group of hunters and guides . We would definitely recommend them to everyone we meet who truly want a great experience hunting and a good time hanging out . Thanks David you did a fantastic job . Thanks ridge line totally worth it and Dan for sure made sure we got taken care of . Thanks Dan and congrats on the new baby . And we also want to say thanks to David’s son for helping scout for us and taking time out of your day to make sure ours was great . We are very appreciative to all involved


Mule Deer Hunting NM

My first experience on a guided hunt was with Dan at Ridgeline Outfitters in 2016.  I now have three hunts with Dan under my belt: two for Mule Deer in Unit 41 and one for Elk in Unit 34.  Dan goes the extra mile to make the hunt as successful and enjoyable as possible.  The food, accommodations, camaraderie and overall hunting experience is rewarding and is what keeps me booking hunts with Ridgeline Outfitters.  My next Elk hunt in Unit 34 is scheduled for October 2019.  I highly recommend Ridgeline Outfitters for your next hunt.

What an awesome hunt and a wonderful experience!  Killed the biggest elk of my career. I’ve hunted all over the country and have hunted elk in NM for 30 years. Without a doubt, Ridgeline is the way to go. Great equipment, nice accommodations, great food and most of all; really friendly folks all focused on getting you the best hunt possible. It’s the people that make the difference!  I’ve already booked next year and have told all my friends about Dan and Ridgeline Outfitters. Book a hunt now! You’ll be glad you did!

We hunted with Dan in unit 12, New Mexico He worked hard to get me a cow elk with success on the third morning! He knew the ranches well.

Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you again for the great hunt this past December in New Mexico. It's always great to be waiting for a nice rack to come back from the taxidermist, but the week itself was a great experience for me (with the nice bull taken making it even better). Everything was handled in a professional manner, with lodging, food, and details taken care of as I expected . I have to mention the great job done by my guide, Iseah, who was excellent. He had obviously scouted prior to my arrival and worked hard all day, every day, to find a mature bull - which we saw several during my hunt. And we just simply had a fun time together hunting elk

I hope I can have the opportunity to hunt with you and your guides again in the coming years, as I would certainly come back and recommend your hunt to anyone. Doesn't get much better than to enjoy a great week and take a bull that was a lifetime dream for this country boy from Virginia!

My hunting experience with Dan Reyes of Ridgeline Outfitters has been outstanding! My first experience with Dan was hunting Barbary Sheep. It was a tough hunt but Dan had done his homework and in the end I took a respectable ram.

The following year I booked a late season Bull Elk hunt for not only myself, but an EOL customer as well. After spending the time with Dan on the sheep hunt, I was confident that he would provide us with another successful hunting venture. My customer and I were very pleased with the amount of animals that were seen on the hunt as well as the amount of respectable bulls that we were able to look over before harvesting two nice 6 points.

Our experience with Ridgeline Outfitters has been nothing but excellent. As I write this testimonial, I am in the process of booking my next Bull Elk hunt with Dan. I will be accompanied this year by two EOL customers. We look forward to yet another epic hunt!

This was my 2nd year hunting with Dan Reyes of Ridgeline Outfitters. Though i was unsuccessful last year with the extreme drought conditions in New Mexico, I rebooked again for this year. I knew Dan and his guides would be prepared and I was not let down. Dan and his guides had scouted bulls for the 3 hunters in camp did a great job matching hunter’s abilities and expectations to each guide. Equally impressive was not only did they do their homework finding quality bulls for us to hunt, but they found these bulls away from other hunters in this public land unit. I have the advantage of hunting with Dan in both successful and unsuccessful years and know how motivated and sincere Dan and his guides are in putting you on nice bulls. I have recommended Ridgeline Outfitter to my friends and plan to return myself.

I love to hunt and have been doing it my entire life. Coast to coast and around the world I have seen some of the most incredible animals and have hunted with the most talented guides the industry has to offer. I recently spent a week in New Mexico with Dan Reyes, owner of Ridgeline Outfitters and he is now in my book of elite guides. A late season elk hunt proved to be one of the most challenging hunts I’ve ever attempted and Dan made the experience more enjoyable than I could have imagined. He knows what he’s doing, how to treat his clients and how to put you in front of big bulls. I’ll be back to hunt with Ridgeline Outfitters, GUARANTEED.

This year I booked a hunt in New Mexico with Dan Reyes and Ridgeline Outfitters. Probably one of the best decisions I made all year! After several years of disappointing hunts with other outfitters, I found one I’m going back to next year! And hopefully years to come! I got to camp the day prior and found Dan and his guides not only already there, but also having done their homework prior to the season opening. Each guide had done some scouting and had several options ready for when they met their respective hunters. The result, every hunter had a shooting opportunity on the first day! We all know that there are no guarantees with hunting and every year presents new and different conditions. But I believe that preparedness will always improve your odds of closing the deal. Dan and his guides were prepared, ready and willing to customize their hunting tactics to their hunter’s abilities, and stayed highly motivated from the first day to the last! Best thing I can possibly say about Ridgeline Outfitters is; “I’m going back”!

Dan worked extremely hard to help me get my first trophy Elk during the early bow season. It was an experience of a lifetime! We chased a 350+ Elk on the 4th morning but couldn’t get quite close enough for a shot, then I got a 330 inch Elk that afternoon. Dan worked us into close position throughout the week to a 100+ head Elk herd. I learned a great deal about hunting elk from Dan, specifically that getting the wind right is everything. I am an experienced southeastern bow hunter, but had never hunted Elk in my life, with Dan’s guidance I was able to get my first Elk and it was a 330 inch 6 x 6 Bull!

Get ready to hike and work hard for your Elk with Dan. The air is thinner in NM and AZ than here in the Southeast, due to the lack of humidity, it took me one day just to acclimatize to the altitude and dryer air. I ran 3 miles 3 times a week to get ready for the trip and that advanced training helped me keep up with Dan in the field. He will consistently outwork you for your own Elk, you can’t ask for anything more from your guide.

Thank you again Dan for the hunting experience of a lifetime!

Dave Michaut

I hunted with Dan for the last 2 years and had a great experience both times. He does his homework and put me on great animals both times. You can’t ask more from an outfitter. I’ve hunted for many years on guided hunts in Alaska, Canada and the western United States and highly recommend Dan as a guide.

Wausau, WI

I have archery elk hunted 5 times with Ridgeline and plan on booking again. We always seen plenty of good bulls and a few great ones. They work hard for you and don’t pressure you. Dan always worked with me to put together the hunt that fit my schedule and budget. Can’t wait to get back, Dan put me in position to kill some great bulls but I need to learn to control my buck fever. I highly recommend hunting with Ridgeline Outfitters.
