After reading the many successful hunting reports and talking with some of the hunters who have had the privilege of hunting with Neil Rey (owner of Giant Sequoia Guide Service) I knew that I had to check out Neil's outfit for myself. After contacting Neil and discussing the land he has access to I quickly booked a hunt. My goal was to take my first big game animal with a recurve. I've already taken multiple pigs with both a rifle and compound bow and was looking to broaden my means of take. While discussing the hunt with Neil I relayed to him that I have a comfortable range of 15-20 yards. Neil said this shouldn't be a problem and that he frequently has hunters get within that range. Since my goal was to take a pig with my recurve and Neil was confident that we would get an opportunity within my range I moved forward with booking the hunt and also booked for a second pig with my compound if the opportunity presented itself.
