"Neil and Donny were both very knowledgeable and kept things interesting and entertaining. They kept things positive even when we had a missed shot and stayed persistent until we both had our tags filled. If we do the hunt again we would be happy for either one of them to be our guide."

Ronnie, GA

"Had a great time once again with Neil and crew on this years archery hunt. Bulls and weather were not cooperating very well but the guides were persistent and hunted us hard. We were able to harvest two great bulls on the last day. Cant say enough for their efforts!"

Kyle, TX

"Really had fun and both Jennifer and I killed elk. Neil did a super job and it was a really positive experience for my daughter and me too. Thanks very much for a quality hunt and quality experience."

"Just got back from my hunt with TLO, and had wanted to say thanks again we had a great time. I really enjoyed my time with Neil and quickly formed an opinion he is by far one of the best guides I have ever had the pleasure of hunting with. The rest of my group had the same review for the other guides- top notch!"

Jim, WY

"Just returned home from our hunt and wanted to say thanks again we had an unbelievable time.  I've hunted enough to know the difference and I can tell you that the organization and execution from you and your guides is absolutely first rate."

Steve, OK

"I work in the outdoor industry so over the years I've had the opportunity to hunt and fish with numerous guides. I can assure you that the choice you make in a guide/outfitter is often the most critical choice of your entire trip.  I have been on trips with a lot of good guides, but the great ones are few and far between.  And I consider Neil Carico and Timberline Guides to be one of the great.  Neil understands big game animals which guarantees you the best opportunity on your hunt of a lifetime.  But as importantly, Neil understands hunters.  He is quick to recognize my strengths and weaknesses and he does his best to accommodate and put me in the best position to be successful...even on those years when I have showed up 20 lbs heavier than I would have liked!  Neil is patient, humble, and has an outstanding customer service ethic. When you hunt with Neil, there is no doubt that his goal is to make sure you have a great trip. If you have any doubts about booking your next guide -save yourself the trouble and book with Neil."

"I've had the pleasure of hunting with Neil Carico multiple times and I have never been disappointed.  We've had elk archery hunts in rough conditions that came down to the wire and we've also had the cake walks where a dream buck stands broadside only 20 minutes into day one.  It makes no difference if it is an easy hunt or a tough one...Neil is consistent.  He consistently works his tail off to make sure you are successful whether it is your bull of a lifetime or your daughter's first doe. "
