Matt is known for his wealth of knowledge and experience while hunting and guiding clients to big game species throughout the southwest. Matt is a dedicated guide, sportsman, and conservationist. His love of the land and all southwest species of wildlife are an integral part of his outfitting business.
Matt lives in central Arizona with his wife Jamie, and their 11 year old son Trent.
Jamie is driving force behind Borderland Adventures. Her organizational master skills arrange all of the logistics for each BLA trip. She keeps everything running smoothly, regardless of which country we’re in.
In the field, she keeps our bellies full with incredible home-cooked meals, dutch oven cooking, and irresistable deserts.
She’s been known to out shoot the boys from time to time, consistently bringing home solid bucks, and leaves us in the dust on the trail.
When planning your adventure, know that Jaime will ensure that every detail is seen to and your trip will run like a fine Swiss timepeice. We certainly could not do it without her.
