“Great service deserves feedback and I want to share my thoughts on the guided Turkey hunt I did in 2018 with Travis Haan of Waterfowl Haven. Due to a busy work schedule, I often use guides to make the most of my time outdoors. I have never hunted with a guide that gave me a more enjoyable experience than Travis. He was not just trying to get me on any bird but was genuinely concerned with giving me a quality hunting experience and presenting an exceptional bird. I have hunted all my life but am new to turkey hunting. We hunted hard and with a mix of techniques. He recognized my desire to learn and took the time to answer my questions thoroughly and share his knowledge. He was the consummate professional but always sincere and never distant. At the end of the day, I took an exceptional gobbler and was proud of the effort we put in. It was worth every penny and I would hunt with Travis again any day.

“Dear Jim, I would like to thank you and your guides for the hunt last weekend. Your guides, Doug and John, are class guys. I will recommend your guide service to anyone that asks me about your business in the future. Thank you, Scott B.” 2017 Goose Hunter

“My son and I will be back as long as Travis can guide us. The guy is a goose hunting natural. For the two days we hunted with him we couldn’t believe how far away most of the geese were, plus flying away from our field and he was able to turn them around and bring them right in on top of us. Our first day was definitely our fault we didn’t limit out because he was putting them right in front of us and we still got 10. This picture is of the second day when we were more dialed in and started aiming. Travis, hunting dog Bullet, with my three boys and our limit of 20 birds, and 90 minutes before legal shooting lighted ended.” Scott and Maxine B; 2017 Goose Hunters

 

“I just wanted to write to let you guys know that Andy was phenomenal. That guys knows what he is doing. Today was one of the best days any of us have ever had in the field and that is only partly because of the geese we shot. We received nothing but first class royal treatment. We will be setting up a snow goose hunt with Andy this year and we plan to hunt Sandhill cranes, Canadians, and snow again with him next year. We cannot thank Andy enough for today. Great time and great company. Best regards, Kasey” 2017 Waterfowl Hunter

“Here is a picture of our 10yr old daughter retrieving with Matt. He was an amazing guide and made us feel like friends not just clients.  He catered to our girls who are 10 & 11. Did everything he could to help them get their geese.  He was successful in getting our youngest her first goose!  It was definitely an experience we will remember for a lifetime!  Thank you!”  Angelina & Mike G., 2016 Goose Hunters

“I wanted to send you this picture of Bullet that I took during this weekend’s hunt at the Pearl.  It was a great final hunt of the season and watching Bullet make all those retrieves put a smile on my face.  I am thinking of maybe doing a snow goose hunt sometime soon so  I will let you know. I am looking forward to hunting with you again next season and I have been getting a lot of interest from my co-workers about doing some hunts next season as well.  Thank you for a great season.”  Peter R., 2016 Waterfowl Hunter

“It truly was the best hunting experience in my life. I have been hunting for 18 years and have never had more fun than I did this weekend. I highly recommend this for everybody. Words truly can’t explain the full experience. Give Waterfowl Haven Outfitters a call and book a trip of a lifetime. I know we will be doing it again. Thank you so much!!” Clayton V., 2015 Client

“My son said this was the best hunting experience of his life. All 3 days. Once again thank you. You’re a gift to the hunting world.” 2015 Snow Goose Hunt
“Thank you! You were a good host. My appreciation to Jim Arnold and his staff.” Duane K., 2015 Snow Goose Hunt

“Where many other hunting guides fail to call in their prey, Arnold can call in Geese, Turkey, Deer, Elk without using a calling machine.  Jim is as hardcore as it gets.  He eats, breathes, and lives this stuff.  He is not only a great hunter, but a great guy.”  – Babe Winkleman, Winkleman Outdoors.

 “You may have heard that Colorado now has so many resident Canada geese that you could say the place is infested with them.  Master goose guide Jim Arnold is lucky to be in the middle of it.  I have hunted with his group for several years now, and I find they provide some excellent hunting for these birds in addition to the hordes of snow geese that migrate through the state.”  – The Bird Hunting Report.

“Hunt Logic is always looking to hook up with guides that produce for our clients. This past few days I had the pleasure of hunting with Jim Arnold of Waterfowl Haven Outfitters in Colorado. We set our sights on the ‘southern opener’ and hit a few secret spots that Jimbo has been cultivating over the last few years. Suffice to say ducks were flying all day long and the steel was right behind it. We had a group of six guns and limits each day.”  – Jim Koustas, Hunt Logic  http://www.huntlogic.com/2013/10/waterfowl-haven-outfitters-colorado/

“It was the ultimate dream. All of the sudden, about two weeks before the season, here they came and they got comfortable,” said Jim Arnold, owner of Waterfowl Haven Outfitters in Fort Collins. “I would say right now there are more geese in the state this early than I’ve ever seen. We got that early arctic push of weather, and from opening weekend on it’s just been unbelievable. We’ve been having unreal harvests every day we’ve gone out, even with the nice weather, just because we have so many birds here in the Front Range right now — more than I’ve ever seen in all my years of waterfowling. Massive “V” formations fill the sky above Colorado’s famed “Golden Triangle” for waterfowl stretching between Empire, Jackson and Riverside reservoirs. Visual estimates of both Canada and snow geese bobbing atop the Pawnee Raw Water Reservoir near Brush placed numbers in the 60,0

00-80,000 range, prompting decoy spreads by the hundreds as hunters attempt to imitate feeding flocks.” Scott Willoughby, Denver Post  http://www.denverpost.com/outdoors/ci_27054626/colorado-goose-hunters-enjoy-plethora-birds-thanks-cold
