About Us

John Burrell, a certified wildlife biologist and award-winning outfitter, cut his teeth running one of the countries most popular whitetail destinations. He has been featured weekly on ESPN as an outfitting expert and is one of the most respected outfitters in the country. He and his destinations have been featured on Under Wild Skies, North American Whitetail TV, Mossy Oak's Hunting the Country, She Safari's Beyond the Lodge and virtually all of the countries top sporting magazines as well at the New York Times. From the South he was introduced to the famed brush country of South Texas where a long-term relationship has led to the High Adventure Company having one of the finest free ranging ranches in the country. From there it was off to the prairies of Canada and the farm country of the mid West where it took years to get the properties up to the standards that the High Adventure Company's customers have come to expect. We have properties in five of the top seven Boone and Crocket producing states as well as in Canada.

Since then, he has hunted, fished and filmed all over the world taking big game, fish and birds in North, Central, and South America, Australia, and southern Africa.
