"As a first time big game hunter I was referred by several people who had used Rob Kern to arrange their hunts and contacted Rob to set up a black bear hunt. After speaking to Rob about what I was looking for, he provided me with several options and spent time with me explaining the differences so that I could make the best choice possible. The Hunting Consortium took care of everything that was needed for my hunt, from my travel arrangements, to my rifle permit, and made everything seamlessly easy for me. I ended up taking a 7’4” black bear with a 19” skull after only 4 hours on the first hunting day! As a result of the services that Rob and the Hunting Consortium provided for me, I have decided to have Rob arrange my first hunt in Africa as well as all of my future hunts." -George Valis
“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 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
“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
"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
“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
"My good friend Bob Kern has built one of the best hunting companies in the world. I have taken many great trophies with him and I recommend The Hunting Consortium to all my friends. My wife and I are hunting again with them next year and look forward to many more great hunts with Bob!". -Jesus Yuren

Since the discovery of the “New World” more than 500 years ago, intrepid hunters have been drawn to America by stories of vast unspoiled wilderness and the bounty of game found there. From the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula, through the deserts of Sonora and Arizona, to the slopes of the majestic Rocky Mountains and the vast reaches of the Canadian Arctic and Alaska, the traveling hunter will discover a great variety of climates and terrain, with an abundance of diverse wildlife.
North America is home to 29 species and subspecies of big game animals and a great abundance of waterfowl, upland birds and other small game. This coupled with the pioneer spirit and rich hunting heritage, which is still very much in evidence in most regions of this continent, makes hunting in North America a rewarding experience – both for residents and foreigners alike.
Possessed of the best infrastructure in the world, North America is perhaps the easiest part of the world in which to hunt. With a reasonable number of experienced, reliable outfitters and a wide selection of accommodations, transportation options and other tourist services, hunting in North America has become easier than ever before.
BUT, in America, as elsewhere, not every offer is genuine or reliable. The staff at The Hunting Consortium Ltd. have traveled and hunted throughout North America for more than 50 years. The organizing of quality hunting trips is our full time job and we take it seriously. We have been to every area where we offer hunts and know every outfitter we represent personally. This experience is time consuming and expensive to amass, but costs our clients nothing extra. It has saved them, instead, from countless problems.
EXCLUSIVE SERVICES FOR FOREIGN HUNTERS
The Hunting Consortium has multilingual staff in Germany, Russia, as well as in the United States and can provide visiting international hunters a more thorough preparation for their hunting trip in North America than may be available from other firms. We provide invaluable “insider” information, as well as assist the foreign hunter in bridging cultural or lingual differences which may exist between themselves and the outfitter chosen to execute their hunt. We can provide information and direct consultation on hunting programs in English, German, Spanish and Russian languages. We provide the full spectrum of tourist services to travelers from abroad and frequently compose complex vacation itineraries of which a hunt forms only a small part.
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.
