DIAMOND OUTFITTERS

Diamond Outfitters, the largest and most successful full-time guide service in North America, is family owned and operated by United States Air Force Veteran Captain and Safari Club International Hunter of the Year, Dan Adler and his wife Terri. Dan and Terri started Diamond Outfitters in 2004 and today, no other outfitter successfully guides more elk, mule deer or Coues deer hunters anywhere in North America. Diamond Outfitters is also extremely well known for its incredible pronghorn antelope, Desert Big Horn Sheep, mountain lion, black bear, oryx, turkey hunts and more in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Sonora, Mexico. In 2013, Dan began co-hosting The Best of the West TV show and since then, dozens of Diamond Outfitters clients hunts in Arizona and Sonora, Mexico have aired. In addition to the woods and on television, you can meet Dan speaking, teaching, hosting seminars or as master of ceremonies in some capacity at almost all of the large national hunting conventions and for the Arizona Elk Society each year.

2004

OUR STORY…

Diamond Outfitters story is truly one of faith, family, trust and an unyielding drive to succeed. Immediately upon leaving the United States Air Force, Dan opened the business after going on a disappointing guided hunt. In that camp Dan thought “I can do better, the business can be better, the industry can be better, the reputation of guides should be better and most importantly, the clients deserve better”!

Although the first couple years may have provided a steep learning curve after leaving the comforts of a government job for the life of an entrepreneur in the outdoors, year 3 provided some amazing traction for the team. In addition to several 370’ plus bulls, several giant Coues, mule deer and a few stunning pronghorn hit the dirt and the word was out about Diamond Outfitters. Today, we have over 1,500 happy clients that will happily provide a reference to you about our operation!

2010

GROWING DIAMOND OUTFITTERS

By 2010 the phone was steadily ringing, and Dan’s hunting and guiding skills, along with the other team members, became high in demand. After averaging 10-15 clients per year the first several years, in 2011 our client volume tripled, and (thanks to the referrals of our clients) it has been steadily increasing ever since. Today Diamond Outfitters is not only the largest outfitter in the state of Arizona, but we believe we are also the largest full-time Veteran owned guide business in North America.

2013

THE PUBLIC STAGE OF THE HUNTING WORLD

Dan’s public speaking (a carryover from his Air Force career) thrust Diamond Outfitters onto the public stage of the hunting world and in addition to being a featured speaker at hunting and 2nd Amendment conventions and banquets, Dan began his television career as a co-host of the archery only tv show, Pulse Factor on the Sportsman’s Channel. This national attention later led to Dan being cast as co-host of The Best of the West TV show in 2013 which, to this day, is one of the most popular hunting tv shows in both the United States and Canada. Dan also maintains an Arizona Pro-Agent Best of the West dealership for our clients. Currently, Dan hosts anywhere from 4-8 Best of the West TV shows per year.

BORDERLAND ADVENTURES JOINS
DIAMOND OUTFITTERS

In 2019 Matt and Jamie Woodward merged their entire outfit, Borderland Adventures into Diamond Outfitters. Matt was not only a very well and established guide in Arizona but also in New Mexico and Sonora. Matt is an incredible hunter, amazing outfitter, social-media guru, and lead generator. Matt brought a very loyal client following to the Diamond family that we are all excited to now call friends. Matt also retained some key guides from BLA to our team, Andrew Dykes and Johnnie Morris just to name a couple. In 2020 Matt and Dan purchased a popular Colorado outfit to offer our clients some world-class mule deer hunts and fun, high-opportunity bull elk hunts on private property.

2021

PURE ADDICTION JOINS
DIAMOND OUTFITTERS

2021 is off to an amazing start as well with Tyne and Jerika Heckethorn merging Pure Addiction Outfitters into the Diamond brand. We first got to know Tyne on the 2020 governor’s elk tag hunt, where Tyne, and a few Diamond guys, played a key-role in the harvest of Waldo. Waldo is now in the all-time SCI record book in the #7 position for a typical bull elk at almost 426’ (he grossed over 440’ in velvet!).

2021 AND BEYOND!

GROWING FORWARD…

Be sure to listen to the Podcast “The Hunt with Matt and Dan” to hear the story and interviews of the crew that took down this mega-giant. Tyne also brought a very loyal client base that all the Diamond guys are now getting to meet and hunt with. We are excited to say Tyne’s PAO crew of Hunter Garman and Alex “Stewy” Stewart are also full time with us now.

Cole Kemp and Franco Simone are also full-time Diamond guides you will meet and enjoy and the remaining 40+ Diamond guides and team members are great Americans you will be glad to know. There is almost no such thing as a one-time client here, you become part of our family.

Lastly, please know we are unapologetic in our camps about our politics, our religion, our love for freedom and our country. We believe America is the greatest country on earth and that, in large part, is due to the Judeo-Christian faith and beliefs She is founded upon. We hold the Constitution near and dear to our hearts, we have a flag in our camps, and their aint nobody kneeling in front of it. We know first-hand, America is the land of the free because of the brave, we aspire to honor them every hunt in our words and our deeds. It is commonplace to have our wives and children in our camps too because, well, that’s what life is all about.
