"When I have a question about a car, recipe, or the latest news, I use "Google." When I have a hunting; where, how, or what question, I call the Hunting Consortium. No Guff! I've booked over 30 international hunts through the Hunting Consortium and fully intend to use their professional services far into the future!" -Jim Shockey
“These guys (Hunting Consortium) are the best in the business, bar none! I have hunted the world for more than 60 years, and the hunts I’ve done with the Hunting Consortium were always perfectly organized. No matter whether in Europe, Africa, or Asia - even in Russia, Tajikistan, and Iran, everything is ready to go and there are no surprises. I really appreciate their travel services - they do my visas, air tickets and everything else I need for an easy trip. One stop shopping!” -Dial Dunkin
“The Hunting Consortium is the “go-to-team” for any hunt in the world - period! Their staff are the most experienced professionals in the hunting industry. They have made my many hunting trips easier and smoother, not to mention successful. I trust their candid, straight forward advice and appreciate their personalized service. Sue and I think of them as family!” -Ray Paolucci
“Bob and Rob Kern and the staff at the Hunting Consortium are experienced professionals. Every trip is meticulously planned with true military precision. I have very much enjoyed my trips with Hunting Consortium and would not trust anyone else to outfit my international hunts!” -Craig Boddington
“I can rely on the Hunting Consortium for up-to-the minute current information on the most remote places on the planet and expert advice on my hunting requirements. Friendly and courteous, the service I get from them is truly first class.” -Rex Baker
“I’ve experienced some of the best hunts of my life with the Hunting Consortium. The trips have been as awesome as the staff who have taken great care of me throughout the years and many, many hunts! The arrangements and coordinations have always been perfect and they’ve always worked hard to ensure that I was satisfied and taken care of.” -Don Jacklin
“During the past 5 years the Hunting Consortium has been the most invaluable resource a hunter could ask for.I have averaged over 150 hunting days in that time and many, if not most of those days were booked through The Hunting Consortium. Their knowledge and experience is unmatched in the hunting industry. I have always been pleased with the quality of the outfitters and the professional hunter’s and guides that Hunting Consortium have booked for me. I’ve hunted in Africa over a dozen times on hunts booked by the Hunting Consortium and every time I felt like I was hunting the premier area with one of the best outfitters and knowledgeable, helpful professional hunters. In Africa I have taken 158 different animals I couldn’t have accomplished that without the Hunting Consortium. I was on a hunting trip for over 6 weeks in the South Pacific which included a family vacation with my adult children and hunted with 5 different outfitters in 6 different areas in both New Zealand and Australia - a LOGISTICAL NIGHTMARE that the Hunting Consortium handled without a hitch. I finished that trip by hunting all of the species available to hunt in these locations besides one. EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS on a single trip. The achievement I am most proud of though is my 21 day hunt in Spain where I took every animal that is currently available to hunt. Considering that the 7 Capra species were all free-range, this was very challenging but the Hunting Consortium put me in the best areas with best outfitters.” -Rick Warren
“I and my family owe many thanks to Bob, Margarete, Rob and the expert staff at the Hunting Consortium for so many memorable hunts in so many countries. It is hard to believe, but every hunt and trip has been characterized by the same qualities - superior service, with a can-do attitude, excellent operators, all arrangements on time and fulfilling everything promised. This is a great organization! I am looking forward to my next hunt with the Hunting Consortium.” -Francisco Vizcaino Gutierrez
“Wherever in the world my hunting dreams take me, I know that Corey and Bob will have everything well-organized. Their amazing knowledge and continuous research has put me in a position to take some truly extraordinary trophies, with the very best guides in the hunting world today. Nobody knows more about the game and the world of hunting than these guys and the travel team at the Hunting Consortium is unlike any I have ever used. They know from personal experience how to get someone into and out of the most remote places in the world and they keep up with the ever-changing regulations concerning hunting, firearms and travel options. This is the most “can-do” team I have ever worked with in hunting! They have risked their reputation and their very lives to blaze your trail. If you’re not booking with The Hunting Consortium, it’s most likely your loss and someone else’s gain. You sure can’t do any better - their word is good!” -Lary Knowlton
“I don't have words to describe the gratitude and appreciation for all the staff at the Hunting Consortium and all that was done for us setting up our ultimate trip of a lifetime in South Africa. Everything went exactly as you had planned it, no surprises - no problems. The trackers and hunters absolutely amazed us. I can't think of one thing or issue to complain about. It was as good as it gets and I highly recommend the Hunting Consortium to anyone. Again, thanks for all you did for us.” -Mike Barrett

Czech Republic & Slovakia
Formerly Czechoslovakia, these two small republics split from each other over political differences in 1993. Both are growing democracies, prospering after 4 decades of Communist rule after World War II. Both have a rich hunting heritage and both have thinly populated forested areas, rich in wildlife and agricultural land where species such as roe deer prosper.
The infrastructure is better in the modern, industrialized Czech Republic. Now there are many comfortable hunting lodges and quaint hotels in the rolling hill country of Bohemia and the beautiful Jeseniky Mountains of Moravia. Slovakia is less developed, but the wild Tatra Mountains are home to the Tatra chamois, unique to this country.
Modest prices, rich hunting traditions, and friendly people, have made the Czech Republic a preferred destination for European hunters for generations. The Bohemian atmosphere and abundance of wildlife, attract thousands of visiting sportsmen each season.
While both the Czech Republic and Slovakia have excellent populations of roe deer, red deer, wild boar, and Alpine chamois, the record book listings for mouflon have long been dominated by rams from the Czech Republic. Selective breeding and generations of scientific management are to thank for this accomplishment. Fallow deer are also of superior quality in both countries, thanks to importation of genetically superior stags from Hungary.
Slovakia also offers excellent driven pheasant shooting. Bags of over 1,000 birds per day to teams of 6 to 8 guns are routine, on the better estates in the Danube Valley, while many estates today can provide good action in the 400 to 600 birds per day range. Famous estates like Bella Bella and Zidlochovice have charmed visiting sportsmen for generations and still provide some of the finest wingshooting in the world.
The Czech Republic is also justly famous for its entertaining sightseeing treasures – such as its beautiful capital, Prague. It is also the home of Pilsner beer, as well as the quaint beer brewing town of Budweis – the original Budweiser!
Slovakia is rapidly developing its hunting industry today. It too can boast great mouflon rams, red stags and wild boar. The Tatra chamois can only be hunted here.
