Hunters from all over the world come to the
Pacific Northwest for the opportunity to hunt black bear, deer,
waterfowl, and both blue and ruffed grouse. Here, deep in the famed
evergreen forests and on the misty banks of the local watersheds, game
thrive in some of the most beautiful habitat in the United States.
Whether it's an afternoon of grouse hunting, or a full out black bear
adventure, John is committed to getting you up close and personal with
your desired harvest species. John takes the time to scout and
regularly hunt these areas. Simply put, there's no one else in the
Northern Puget Sound area who guides these woods better.
All trips are custom catered to fit you and your
skill level, hunting method and desired species. John offers both
archery and modern firearm hunters the best opportunities available
throughout the fall, hunting for Black Bear, Black-Tailed Deer,
White-Tailed Deer, Mule Deer, Grouse, and Waterfowl.
Our custom tailored hunts are conducted for the
most part in the foothills of the scenic and majestic North Cascade
mountains of Washington State, just a two hour drive north of Seattle,
by either John Koenig of John's Guide Service or one of our hand
selected experienced associate guides.
The day before your hunt you will be met in
person by John or one of our other associate guides to discuss the plan
of the day which may involve a combination of driving, stalking,
tree-stand or ground-blind hunting in one of our previously scouted hunting
All of our local hunting areas are scouted at least once a week to
ensure resident game species have not moved on and remain in the area.
On big game hunts for black-tailed deer and black
bear, opportunities at both Blue and Ruffed Grouse may and do arise
along with a chance encounter of a Cougar or a Bobcat, so it is always
a good idea to purchase applicable tags for other than your targeted
species. Upon completion of your hunt your game will be dressed
immediately and caped accordingly to ensure quality and freshness for
your trip home.
Whether you choose a single day hunt or a
multiple day hunt, all lodging, food, tags and licenses will be your
responsibility but we will be happy to help in making arrangements for

"Hey John had a great
time, appreciate everything, including those up close and personnel
experiences this Hawaiian boy has never experienced before. You know I
thought I was getting good at spotting that bear sign, which just
happened to be all around us, but for some reason what I thought was a
freshly clawed up tree, turned out to be some damn moss. The nerve,
playing tricks on those Hawaiians. HaHa! Could not have asked for a
better guide, even though I did not harvest a bear I had the greatest
time, and saw some of the most beautiful scenery. Like you said John,
Guide not God! Aloha a me Mahalo nui loa!!!!"
