"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
“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
“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
“With so many hunts out there in the world, you can’t know them all, but Bob Kern does. I have hunted and fished on 6 continents over the past 20 years through the Hunting Consortium and have enjoyed every trip. He has never sent me to a bad one. I can’t say the same for the trips that I have arranged myself. I run a large company, with little time for the details that Bob’s experienced staff handles smoothly and completely. I go about my busy schedule until it’s time to get on the airplane and then do so confident that the upcoming adventure is planned with military precision and a thorough knowledge of the game and hunting area. The more experienced I become at worldwide hunting, the more certain I am to book every hunt through the Hunting Consortium.” -Paul Dickson
“Thanks so much for organizing our trip to Austria. It was amazingly beautiful and you were so right that the food was the best. I hope to have you plan another trip for us in the future. I want to continue hunting ibex when I am able to plan another trip like this.” -Philip Glass
“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

Europe is arguably the most interesting tourist destination in the world! On no other continent has hunting reached such a level of sophistication as it has in Europe. For hundreds of years hunting was the sport of kings, reserved for the privileged few. It is in Europe that our worldwide hunting heritage and culture have reached their most advanced states. The most advanced techniques of game management and selective breeding have been developed in Europe and the extraordinary trophy quality available now in Europe is a testament to this scientific approach.
The Hunting Consortium has been arranging hunts in Europe since 1978. Europe offers an enormous variety of hunting opportunities! Just as varied as the venues, are the customs and traditions that the foreign hunter may experience while hunting in Europe. Beautiful and sophisticated, Europe is a treat to the senses. Excellent food, lodging, superior restaurants, unparalleled sightseeing and entertainment opportunities make hunting in Europe great for families. The Hunting Consortium is the only American hunting company with an office in Europe and its own employees there.
The Hunting Consortium Ltd. is the leading company in the United States in arranging European hunts. We are the only company which maintains an office in Europe and full-time regional representatives to assist our customers.
We know personally every operator we recommend and we visit the hunting areas frequently to ensure that our information remains current.
Knowledge – Working long hours, full-time, in the hunting and fishing industry, experienced consultants uncover and accumulate information no amateur sportsman would be exposed to. Real consultants are not just booking agents. Knowing which areas to hunt or fish, which operator to use for a particular quest and when to go for the highest chance of success, is the essence of our craft. (Beware of part-timers, they are really just amateurs in disguise.)
Experience – A good consultant’s experience allows him to edit the multitude of offerings in the marketplace, selecting precisely the right option to suit the individual taste and desires of each client. Bob Kern and his experienced staff have hunted in more than 50 countries throughout the world, over the span of more than 50 years. Bob has personally collected over 160 species of big game (over 500 trophies). They spend much of every year visiting hunting and fishing destinations, exploring remote territories, speaking with operators, old and new, and evaluating ever-changing conditions. They are the more experienced outdoor adventure team in the world today.
Insider Information – Consultants receive confidential information involving the financial stability of operators, pending new game regulations, and a host of other technical issues continuously. This, information is used to temper recommendations and guide clients’ decisions.
Advocacy – Every operator wants to fill his camps and sell his harvest quota. The consultant’s objective, on the other hand, is to please and serve his clients. If a dispute should arise between an operator and a client, an experienced consultant can often use his leverage to obtain an equitable solution. A customer can only represent his individual position to any operator, but the consultant represents the voices of many clients and can elevate any issue to market-wide exposure, when necessary.
Service – The staff at The Hunting Consortium routinely procures visas, firearm permits, and other travel documents, as well as issuing air tickets, making hotel reservations, and performing a host of other services to make travel easier and more interesting for clients. They also construct complex sightseeing programs to compliment any hunt.
