These esteemed accolades were bestowed recently at the Orvis Guide Rendezvous 2017 event in Missoula, Montana. For more than three decades, the Orvis Guide Rendezvous has provided a forum for the best-of-the best in the wingshooting and fly-fishing industries to collaborate, learn and network with their peers. It’s also an opportunity for Orvis to recognize lodges, guides, outfitters and dog breeders who are literally the best in the world based on customer feedback among other established criteria.

Joshua Creek Ranch has been a pioneer in the wingshooting lodge business for more than 27 years. In only its third year in the prestigious Orvis Endorsed Program, the Texas Hill Country Ranch has already been a finalist for Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year twice – in 2016 and 2017.

“We try very hard to offer an exceptional customer experience — from guided hunts and habitat management best practices to luxury lodging, meals and amenities, we always keep the Orvis Commitment to Partnership top-of-mind,” offered Kevin Welborn, Joshua Creek Ranch Director of Marketing, Sales & Guest Services. “We have received more than 500 five-star customer reviews on our Orvis profile in just the last two years which suggests we’re doing a pretty good job so it’s nice to be recognized,” Welborn added.

For 2017, Joshua Creek Ranch guide, Eric Harrison, was also recognized as the best in the business as Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Guide of the Year. Eric has been with the Ranch for more than 11 years and offers a truly unique experience for his wingshooting customers. According to Welborn, “Eric’s larger-than-life-never-met-a-stranger personality, dog work and patience with all customer skill levels truly set him apart.”
