Phil "Bones" Sauger / Guide

"Bones" is our eyes and ears in the Lebanon County area near
The Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. 
Phil guides for Canadas and Snows and has become very proficient
at the Snow Goose hunting - a game not easily learned. 
Phil is single and works as a Logistics Technician as a full time vocation.
Bones will talk your ear off about two of his other outdoor pursuits;
Archery Deer Hunting and Striper Fishing.

Chuck Knisley

Chuck Knisley / Guide

Chuck lives in SW Pennsylvania with his Wife Tammy.  
They own and operate Happy Trails Retrievers, and Chuck
works as a Pennsylvania Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator.
Chuck also spent 10 years in the US Army

as a Chemical Warfare Specialist.
Chuck and Tammy love being in the outdoors; everything from
being in a deer stand during archery season to calling in some
big Toms during spring turkey.
But Chucks passion is waterfowl. He has been hunting Ducks and Geese for
25 years all over Western PA and Ohio and recently started hunting
Diver ducks at Lake Erie. (His biggest satisfaction while waterfowl hunting is watching my retrievers work and having a laugh in the blinds).
I was introduced to Snow Goose hunting with James Creek Outfitters several years ago and became obsessed.  I look forward meeting new clients and sharing the experience of decoying birds.
