Michael Bales

Professional Hunt Advisor & Senior Research Specialist

Husband to a beautiful wife, father to an amazing daughter, and an avid outdoorsman. 

First introduced to whitetail hunting in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Mike has since traveled the country in search of ever more challenging hunting and fishing adventures. From the swamps of Texas for Alligator to the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho for Mountain Lion. South Florida for Tarpon, Colorado Elk, Missouri Hogs and Whitetail, and the rivers of the midwest for those flying steaks some call ducks, he’s always on the road in search of the next species on his bucket list.

Tim Martin

Professional Hunt Advisor

Born in Texas and moving to Montana at an early age, Tim grew up hunting with his father in the wilderness of western Montana and Idaho. Having taken 21 species towards his North American Grand Slam with a passion for hunting sheep in some of the most remote territory in North America, Tim is our go-to guy for all things sheep related. 

When not hunting and helping members, Tim also dedicates his time as a volunteer firefighter. 

Ross McCarthy

Ross grew up in Phoenix, Arizona hunting mule deer and black bear. When he’s not actively hunting, Ross is a competitive archer and regular Ironman competitor. Ross is extremely skilled at helping members navigate the often convoluted application processes of the west’s most desirable locations.

Bill McKinney

Professional Hunt Advisor

A retired Air Force pilot, Bill grew up helping his father guide hunters in northwest Montana until enlisting in the Air Force in 1991. After retirement, Bill returned to Montana and began guiding clients in the same units his father did decades before. Clients have taken over a dozen B&C animals while hunting with Bill and the scouting reports he has compiled have helped members harvest an additional seven.
