After spending time in south Texas
photographing the wildlife and birdlife I'm convinced
this is one of the premier nature photography locations in North
America in the winter months. With the local guidance of my friend, Butch Ramirez, a local
professional wildlife photographer based in Laredo who has had
dozens of Texas Whitetails Magazine covers, we will spend
time traveling to different birding hotspots, like Salineno and McAllen, including Butch's
photography ranch - the Rocking R6.
One of the
places we shoot at is the Tipps Ranch near Oakville, TX. This
large ranch, high-fenced as many of the Texas ranches are, produces
amazingly big whitetail bucks.
We met in Laredo, TX on Sunday night, December 11. Since I'm
leading the Bosque del Apache NM Safari just days before I won't be
available to provide rides to Laredo except to those traveling with
me, but will - depending on the number signed up - provide rides
back to California. It is recommended that you fly into Laredo to
meet up with us.
The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, Venmo, or credit card,
and the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the
safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then full
payment is due. Check the main safari page for other info.
I've spent my 40-year wildlife
photography career shooting in the American West. The first
24 years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of
California. I lead safaris to the best locations, at the
best times, during peak wildlife activity periods. What a
rush it has been.
