Dan, I just wanted to say what an amazing camp and operation you have. Some of the best and most helpful guides I’ve ever seen. All work as a team, and we got it done! Beautiful buck!

Hey Dan, me and the guys had a blast, thanks for a great time in Sonora. Couldn’t have gone any better. See you again, soon. Your friend, Robin

Diamond Outfitters and its guides did an outstanding job of helping me to accomplish my goals and dreams for an antelope over 90 inches. I consistently felt that they were my partners passionately concerned about helping me to get the most out of this unit, this tag and the hunt. Great job guys, my antelope scores nearly 92! Thank you for being a key part in such a special once in a lifetime experience.

Tim A (OH)

Diamond Outfitters is a first class full service outfitter that prides itself on quality, professionalism and taking care of the small details…. The communication between Dan and my guide months before the hunt were second to none….The organization certainly earns a 5-star highest rating….the equipment, food and facilities are top notch….my guide is a renowned expert and I was fortunate to hunt with him…from my first meeting with Dan I had a good feeling about Diamond Outfitters…my initial impressions proved to be spot on….thanks for an absolutely awesome hunt and record-book animal!

Eddy Corona–Outdoor Experience for All

Hey Dan, I just learned what you did for Gabby. It takes a special person to jump up for a kids hunt without even being asked, and taking the lead on something like this. You made a big impact on a child’s life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much I really appreciate you, God bless you and your family, for allowing us this opportunity and allowing Gabby the opportunity to harvest this gorgeous antelope. Thank you once again Dan and Gabe!

Barry K

What can I say but WOW! What I experienced was incredible. Archery hunting elk in the rut has got to be the most exhilarating hunt I have ever been on. I saw more elk on the first day than I had on all my other elk hunts combined. Your exceptional knowledge of the area and the elk had us inside the herds continuously. I have to mention the the day we had two big bulls fighting in front of us and tow small bulls so close behind us I could hear them breathing. Now that’s that’s getting up close and personal. I say again, WOW! Diamond Outfitters is top notch and I would recommend you to anybody looking for a great hunt. I will hunt with you again.

Don P. (CA)

Dan, you and your team exceed every expectation that I had! Thank you and everyone at Diamond Outfitters for an amazing outdoor experience in which I harvested a Kaibab Cactus buck! I feel blessed and could not have asked for a better guide. He is now a friend for life. He demonstrated knowledge, skill, guidance and patience that is obtained through experience and earned my respect. The other guides in camp are all excellent guides and fun to be around as well. The food and accommodations were the best I have ever experienced in a hunting camp. Cowboy Jim and Dave are gracious cooks and a pleasure to be with. Loved the Dutch oven cobbler! If there is anything I can do for you and your team let me know!

Stew S. (OR)

We had a great time with wonderful people, my compliments on your selection of guides! We went 2 for 2 on trophy Coues!

Bill C.

Dan, I wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time with your crew in New Mexico. You have a great group of guys there and they did a wonderful job. We will definitely be booking another hunt for next year.
Thanks again.

Jim P..

This was my first western hunt and I could not have been happier. I had an outstanding guide, Devon McLean, who exceeded my expectations. We saw so many elk we could not count them all!! This hunt was outstanding. I learned so much about elk and elk hunting that this will be one of my all time memorable hunts. Devon, thank you. Dan, thank you. You both made this so enjoyable and a hunt of a lifetime.

Bill R.

Dan and his team of guides at Diamond Outfitters are a top notch crew. From booking, applying for tags, and getting to camp for the hunt, this was the easiest hunt that I have ever booked. The guides will do what it takes to get you on the game that you are pursuing. I am looking forward to many more hunts with Diamond Outfitters.

Rod R.

Had a great time on my bear hunt! Mike and Layne were professional and knew their stuff inside and out. I’ll be back to do another hunt soon.

Ben D.

Diamond did an excellent job accommodating my style of hunting. I’m all about going after em, not sitting in the truck. We put the hours and miles in day after day, once we finally got em found my guides Bubba and Gabe made magic happen. We put an arrow in a big mature elk at 35 yards. Life changing experience.

Rod F.

Diamond Outfitters and their guides’ knowledge of the area and pre-scouting was excellent! We had multiple antelope bucks and areas as a backup just in case. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking for success on a trophy hunt!

Brad B.

Excellent experience all around. AZ spot and stalk bear-only for the truly committed hunter! The whole Diamond team gets 5 stars across the board!

Calvin K.

Very professional group of guys.If you come prepared the hunt will be the best it can be.

Andrew A.

This was my third successful hunt with Diamond Outfitters, with a fourth already booked for later this year. I can’t say enough good things about the guides I’ve worked with so far. They’ve all been extremely knowledgeable, and more than happy to help me improve my hunting skills. Can’t wait to get back into the field!

Josh E.

I’ve booked the same hunt the last three years and they have exceeded my expectations. The guide and the cook have made my experiences ones to remember.

Ken V.

Great group of people to deal with. The weather on this hunt was not our friend. But everyone was positive and hunted hard. Everyone wound up having a chance of bringing a big one home. I would definitely go again with this group!

John C.

Vince Martinez was my guide and a true professional. We hunted well together. He certainly knew the area exceptionally well and put us on big bulls everyday. I would like to hunt w/ Vince again.

Doug M.

I have hunted Elk in Idaho for the past 20 years. I have never experienced the rut and with giant bulls as I did on my hunt with your organization this year. Being in the middle of multiple bulls 360+, screaming their heads off and watching my guide maneuver through the herds was absolutely amazing. I will never forget this trip and look forward to the next one. Thank you!

Nathan A.

Diamond Outfitters is an amazing guide service. Extremely knowledgeable group and THE best customer service. Dan’s guys worked their butts off to put me in a position to take my biggest bull elk to date!

David A.

Smartest decision I made was going with Diamond Outfitters after a couple years of over-the-counter DIY elk hunts in Colorado. My guide had been scouting for 3 months prior to my hunt, knew the area like the back of his hand, and found us lots of animals. Each hunter in camp had a very large comfortable two men tent, a nice breakfast each morning, then good hot evening meals. Always plenty of good snacks, water, and Gatorade in camp. Most importantly was that all guides in camp were very personable and always asking if they could do something for you. Thanks to my guide Jace and the three others in camp Brad, Jack, and Tim. Thanks also to Dan Adler for stopping by to say Hi.

Tony S.

I have hunted with Diamond a few times. Always fun, the guides are all legit, and always get you in the action!

Dee R.

This was the most memorable hunting experience of my life. I shared it with my son, my best friend and two of the finest young folks I’ve come across in a very long time, along with Boss Dan.
Happenstance had it one day this year. My friend and I were out scouting an area in preparation for the Arizona early Bull elk hunt. After 20 years of applying we finally drew the “Golden Ticket”. We stopped at a camp to say Hi and exchange pleasantries. It was here we met Dan Adler and a few of his guides and clients. What a bunch of standup guys! We talked about our upcoming hunt and Dan was so helpful in explaining the elk routine during the rut along with passing on tips on how to successfully hunt them.
Dan offered his guide service to us if we had an interest. He assured us that we would have a memorable hunt and enjoy the knowledge and professionalism of his staff. Having never utilized a guide service, my friend and I were uncertain if this was a good fit for us. Giving thought to our age and the reality that we likely would never draw this tag again we decided to communicate with Dan. After several conversations we decided to book Diamond Outfitters services for our hunt. It was the right choice!
A few other things fell into place as well: The two guides were absolutely amazing! The guides knowledge and ability was something we had never experienced. He knew the country and the animals. It was uncanny how he could tell the size of the bulls by their bugle and the directions they were moving. Both of these fellas were so polite, personable and energetic. Serious about taking care of their client as well. We all had a great time. My friend harvested a very nice herd bull with a chocolate brown rack. Other team members started showing up, jumped in and helped finish the field dressing.Two days later; approximately 6:00 pm. (cold and drizzling) we were on a nice bull. Shot rang out and our second bull was down. A 6 x 7 with a big spread.
About Dan Adler: Approximately 10:00 pm still cold and drizzling, we (me, my son, two guides and my friend) were close to finishing field dressing my elk. Here comes Dan with his freighter pack frame! Dan jumped in and helped finish up the field work. We all loaded up and made our long trek back to the vehicles. We got back to camp at 1:30 am. The next morning we made our way to the game processor and taxidermist. What a memorable hunt!
Thank you Diamond Outfitters. I look forward to our next hunt together.

Jarred B.

I was greeted with friendly faces. Guides at camp did a wonderful job putting us in a position to harvest a spectacular animal. Guides at camp also did a great job making me feel welcome and made the hunt about the hunter. Thank you for everything.

Brett T.

Can’t thank Dan and Diamond Outfitters enough for my and my wife’s amazing elk hunt in New Mexico. The highlight was working with you and the team. Wonderful guides, great men, lifelong friends. Oh, and great elk!

Mark L.

New Mexico Elk hunt was the most challenging of my hunting experiences. My guide was professional and allowed plenty of time for me to maneuver through the terrain. Plenty of opportunities for shots and took a great trophy home.

Anthony W.

My friend and I had a great experience hunting with Diamond Outfitters. The guides are extremely knowledgeable, the base camp comfortable yet still providing enough of that ‘western hunting’ atmosphere, and the land we hunted absolutely beautiful. One of the things that impressed me most about Diamond Outfitters was the guides’ ability to adapt the hunt to the needs and fitness level of the clients — for the less fit or adventurous finding game closer to roads or trails, and for the hearty, full-on hiking through the mountains with packs to some truly secluded locations. I’m already in the process of booking my next hunt with Diamond Outfitters.

Amanda J.

I highly recommend Jace, he knows his job went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. He knew right where to take me for the game. He did his homework. Scored Brownie points with awesome peanut butter French Toast.

Jason O.

This was one of those hunts that will be tough to beat! The whole experience from start to finish was first class. My brother and I signed up for a Coues Deer hunt with Dan a few years back, with the mindset that we would cross a species off the bucket list. Man were we mistaken! We are now hooked on Coues Deer hunting. They are some of the most beautiful, elusive, and at times the most frustrating animals I have had the privilege to hunt. Our guides, were an absolute blast to hunt with. Their knowledge of the animals and terrain, work ethic, and personalities were second to none. Because of them, we were fortunate enough to harvest two great bucks! The whole experience with Diamond Outfitters exceeded our expectations, and can’t wait to head down to the desert and do it all again!

Ken Y.

I had an incredibly fun Coues deer hunting trip in Arizona.
I am already looking forward to my trip to Mexico with Diamond Outfitters next year.

Erin K.

My Kaibab hunt with Diamond Outfitters exceeded all expectations! Their professionalism, expertise and hospitality made for an unforgettable experience. My guide, Paul, went to great efforts to ensure I had multiple opportunities in various locations. Paul helped create a fun and safe environment to hunt. I had a great time and will be recommending Diamond Outfitters to any and all of my hunting friends and family!

Chuck N.

I thoroughly enjoyed my hunt with Diamond Outfitters and would hunt with them again. My guide was friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. The food and lodging was great.

Preston S.

So far I’ve hunted with Diamond in 2 different locations. I’ve had a blast. Dan and the crew are very informative and just give you the facts. Both my hunts were a great success thanks to Diamond Outfitters. I have more hunts with Diamond on the way!

Lobo R.

Overall our hunt was awesome, the guides worked their butts off to get us to the deer.
Brandon (our guide), Justin, Jack and the whole crew came together to help me tag out on the last morning of my hunt.
Can’t wait to try to get elk or mule deer tags for next year. And will definitely be hunting with Diamond Outfitters.

Justin C.

Dan, your team is great!

Joseph B.

Dan, everything about the hunt was great, the guide Jace worked extremely hard every day to find the game I was looking for. I was surprised at how good the cook, Steve, prepared the meals every night. I have been to many hunting camps and this was one of the best organized. Again, look forward to hunting again with Diamond!

Wesley S.

Devon was great, he put me and my son on the spot where we had a great opportunity and ended up harvesting 2 animals.

Brandon M.

Guide was great and I learned a lot on my coues deer hunt.
My expectations were exceeded
Food and accommodations were great for tent camping
Overall extremely pleased
The group as a whole worked great together
Had a great time and will be adding the zero outfitter fee option for next year
Thanks!

Traci M.

Our hunt with Diamond Outfitters was amazing. Our guides put us on some monster muleys. I got a 218″ smasher and my husband was on no less than three different 190+ deer. We had a great time and even got a little coyote hunting in as well.

Nathan P.

Great hunt/ experience overall. The Diamond crew/guides had more passion than any other crew we have hunted with and the results showed for it. Giant bull of a lifetime!

Rick B.

Hey Dan. Back at work wishing I was still hunting. Just wanted to say thank you again for the successful hunt. I’m 3 for 3 with Diamond, but I think this hunt was the most memorable. The camp was awesome (super Dave’s food was beyond awesome), Kodiak tents / heaters / cots were awesome – just an all-around awesome experience. Of course shooting a great late season bull doesn’t hurt !! LOL. I just wanted you to know that.

John H.

Just finished my late season elk hunt in unit 10 and will recommend you to everyone!! Was an awesome experience! Filled my tag and had a terrific experience! Guides were unbelievable and helpful and courteous! Kept my spirits up when things were tough and sealed the deal with a beautiful specimen! Will be back and I will make sure I eat in cook Super Dave’s camp!! His food rocks!!

Jeff M.

Hi Dan, just got done with my hunt. I have hunted all over the world and this was one of my best and most memorable hunts. Jace, Nick, Derek, Jay and David are some of the finest young men I’ve ever hunted with. They worked hard and made the hunt a lot of fun. Camp was very comfortable and the food was great. The 4 guys from CA were great guys and fun to be with. We really got along great. In fact, the 5 of us want to do the Mexico coues deer hunt in January 2023. Please give me a call when things slow down and let’s set it up.
Thank you for putting this together. Feel free to use me as a reference if you’d like to. You run a great operation. Thanks again

Great camp. Guides were hard working, professional and fun to be around. One of my most memorable hunts.

Dan P.

I had a great experience with Diamond Outfitters from the start. Dan and Matt were very helpful with answering any questions I may have had. John was my guide, he was very understanding of the size of elk that I wanted. I couldn’t have been happier on how the hunt went

Kevin M.

The Coues Deer hunt was awesome and my guide Joey was incredible. The whole experience hunting with Diamond Outfitters was amazing. Thank you all very much looking forward to hunting with guys in the future.

Bob Z.

Wonderful hunt. Diamond Outfitters is a genuine professional business. I can not say enough about the quality of the camp and the guides. I would have been equally satisfied, even if I had not harvested an elk. Everyone went above and beyond in helping me harvest an elk. Thanks again.

Deb E.

This is my second hunt with Diamond Outfitters. Dan goes out of his way to make sure everything is ready and waiting for you when you arrive at camp. His guides are the best! They are very personable, and have done their homework. They know the animals’ habits and travel routes, they are patient with their clients (I’m an older woman), and they get just as excited as the hunter when a harvest is made. Then they bust their rears to field dress and haul out the meat. I highly recommend Diamond Outfitters. I’ll definitely be booking with them again… and again!

Trae S.

This was the most I have ever enjoyed a hunt. There is nothing like chasing to catch up to the dogs when they are on a lion’s trail. I can’t wait to do it again.

Payton F.

Jace and Devon were wonderful guides on our successful elk hunt. Both of them were very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. The hunt was everything I had hoped for and more. Thanks guys

John P.

Throughout the year Team Diamond kept us informed on application deadlines & hunt options/opportunities. Camp boss and guide called ahead of the hunt to provide camp details/location & answer questions. Guide tailored the hunt to our specific needs/preferences/abilities and we had fun! Dan (owner) treated us like special guests, not a number, came to camp to meet us and get our feedback on their services. Tent and meals were top notch!

Chadd L.

I would highly recommend Diamond Outfitters. I had the hunt of a lifetime and could tell they had done their homework. I will definitely be back.

Ryan L.

I went on a bear hunt with hounds, and had the absolute time of my life. It was one of the most physically demanding yet rewarding experiences of my entire existence. Mike and Layne were absolutely top notch houndsmen and I have already inquired about using them again. Overall, I cannot be more pleased with my entire hunting adventure with Diamond.

Jeff H.

First western hunt and couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. Our guide Dave was phenomenal. We got in on tons of game. Will definitely be booking more hunts with Diamond in the future.

Mike R.

Thank you very much. What a great hunt! Mike and Layne are two of the most bad ass guys I ever met. Had a great time hunting and in camp!! Thanks for allowing me the opportunity.

Rich M.

Lion guide (Mike Harris) has hard-working hounds and sure-footed mules. Mike is always well-prepared for the daily hunt, and remains positive even in adverse conditions.

Ben D.

Diamond did an excellent job accommodating my style of hunting. I’m all about going after em, not sitting in the truck. We put the hours and miles in day after day, once we finally got em found my guides Bubba and Gabe made magic happen. We put an arrow in a big mature elk at 35 yards. Life changing experience.

Rod C.

Best out-of-state experience I’ve ever had the food was excellent the people were great and can’t wait to go back next year to get me another Jummie

Al S.

The Mexico hunt was just great the guides and the staff treated me as if I were family, couldn’t have been more friendly. Food was really good. I think I gained weight. High rack hunting was new to me but what an adventure I loved it. Saw some of the biggest bucks I’ve ever seen, just a great hunt overall. Thanks to everyone.

Rabun W.

Had a good hunt and tagged out the first morning. Guide and I were able to stalk across an open field to get a shot at a cow elk and dropped it with my longest shot to date. Awesome country and lots of wildlife in the area.

Trevor V.

Just want to drop you a note and let you know how my hunt was in MX. The trip was a very good experience.
Johnnie was my guide. He worked his butt off to make sure everything went smoothly, has a great personality and knows the area well. I would have him as my guide anytime.
Jack and Derick were in camp also and those two were also very good men.
God has blessed your company with such fine representatives.
Thanks again for the experience.

David T.

This was a great hunt with a top of the line Outfitter! Food was excellent, lodging was comfortable, the guide (Franco) went above and beyond to make sure I got my Coues Deer! I couldn’t ask for a better experience or better Outfitter! I would hunt with them again and again and again. Thanks!

Steve A.

Had an outstanding Mt. Lion hunt with Mike Harris & Layne Chitwood through Diamond Outfitters. They are outstanding guides with a very successful track record. I harvested a cat on day 5 of a 7 day hunt! Thanks Dan, Mike and Layne!!

Ray R.

We had a great time. Those people who live there and work for Diamond are as good a bunch of people as I have ever dealt with. I laughed more on this trip than any other hunting or fishing trip that I have ever been on. I’ll surely miss those guys for a long time to come. Thanks for a great time!

Clint W.

Diamond Outfitters always delivers excellent service with great guides!!

James W.

My Mexico Coues hunt was the third hunt I have done with Diamond Outfitters, and the best one yet. Rancho La Bellota has great deer and a great Head guide Andrew. The Meals were great and we saw more Bucks than I have ever seen. I cannot wait to hunt this ranch again.

Mike B.

I hunted a beautiful ranch in Sonora with superb, and fun guides (Vince, Hunter, Franko, & Devon). We saw an amazing number of truly excellent Coues and enough mulies to keep us interested. This is my third trip (to different areas) with Diamond Outfitters. I can recommend them without hesitation and will hunt with them again.

Calvin T.

The lion hunt was the hardest hunt I ever been on but my guide Brian Thomas made it fun and memories to last a lifetime. He and his dogs were amazing. I went places on horses that I didn’t think was possible. Jamie was a super cook and nice down to earth person. Thanks to Brian for making a dream come true with a lion.

John Y

Hey Dan, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful trip of a lifetime. This elk hunt could not have played out any better, even in my dreams. Giant bull down!

Greg P.

My archery bull elk hunt with Dan Adler of Diamond Outfitters in unit 9 was incredible! It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to hunt with guides Paul and Ray, both very professional and excellent at calling bugling bulls, putting me on bulls nearly every day. I was very impressed with their knowledge and hunting skills. They both worked exceptionally hard and as a result, I was able to harvest a beautiful giant bull! The entire Diamond Outfitters staff that I encountered (Dan, Paul, Ray and Nate) worked extremely hard to make this hunt a very memorable experience for me!

Gary D.

Simply put, it was time well spent. My expectations were exceeded, and friendships were made. The staff was excellent and they are quality men. Atmosphere around camp was always upbeat. There was quality and tasty food! Thanks to Paul for his dedication and effort on my behalf. Looking forward to returning and thanks again for a great hunt!

Autumn H. (15 years old, her first big game animal 358 inch bull)

Thank you so much for giving me this amazing experience. I will never forget this amazing day.

Rob H.

Dan, thank you for the great experience that you provided to my family and me. The professionalism that you and your team displayed was outstanding every day. You lead by example and it shows in every member of your team. Great men.

Terry P.

Dan and Jon are first-rate guides! Enjoyed his company and the hunt! Big bull down!

Gregg M.

You have one of the most organized outfits I have hunted with. Everything was top notch!

Wyatt D.

Dan – I just want to say “thanks!” for the great week of hunting elk in Arizona. You and your crew did an awesome job keeping all your clients housed, fed and as comfortable as weather conditions would allow. You run a 5 Star outfit. I really enjoyed meeting and getting to know most of your guides while in camp. You have a great bunch of talented, hard working men. Thanks again and looking forward to hunting with you again someday.

Peter V.

Dan has a first-rate operation. I have hunted with him two times. The camps are clean, well-stocked and comfortable. His staff are professional, competent and good company. The food is good and plentiful. I’m already booking another hunt with Diamond Outfitters.

David.

My guide Ricardo was great! He was a great teacher and put me on deer every day of my hunt. His cooking was top-notch and he was good company the whole time. Because I was never taught as a kid, I needed to hire a “Dad” to show me how to hunt. Ricardo was perfect for this hunt. Thank you!

Mike L.

Our guides Mike and Jeff were great! Overall experience was a 10+! Nice Job and Thank You!!

David W.

Vince is an exceptional guide and we got to be good friends during my elk and deer hunts. Troy really knows his stuff and is 100% a great guy. Had a great lion hunt with him as well.

Dick R.

I have hunted twice with Diamond Outfitters and guide Chris, and plan to hunt with them again. Very organized operation, with skilled, hard working guides. Makes for a great operation. Thanks Dan and Chris!

Tim O.

It pays to get a lion tag during your hunt. We doubled on mountain lions the first morning on a deer hunt. Memory of a lifetime! Oh, and STILL got our deer!

Ron H.

I would love to be able to hunt with Diamond Outfitters again. My guide Brett, was awesome. He worked his butt off to try and find a deer. Nate, Dan and Paul went above and beyond to help put us on deer as well. Even if I had not harvested a deer, I would still use Diamond Outfitters again.

Rosey K.

I would like to take a minute to say “thank you” to Paul, Nate, Ray and Dan. It was a great experience for me and thanks to my brother for taking me. Everything was exceptional. Super nice people and hospitality. Could not have asked for a better trip and experience. Absolutely loved every minute and I sure hope I get the chance to do it again!

Erv W.

Thanks, Dan for an enjoyable hunt. My guide Dylan was excellent in every aspect of guiding. I’m not a world renowned hunter but have a number of Western and Alaskan hunts under my belt. He was one of the best I ever had. I was impressed how well he did and thank you for hooking him up as my guide.

Dave J.

Had a great time on our deer hunt. Phil did a great job and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. Everything went great with “Pops” on the drive to and from the airport. I would recommend this hunt to anyone looking for an adventure.

Ananymous

Dan – I had an amazing hunt and had a fantastic time. Guides were great, and I’m already looking forward to hunting with them again.

Ammon W.

As I am now 61 years old, it was on my bucket list to hunt elk out of a remote setting. It was a wonderful experience for me being able to push myself but not over what I could handle. Getting to rent a rifle and then shoot my elk at 550 yards was amazing. Arriving 2 days early to get used to the altitude was a plus since I live at 450 ft. above sea level. The guides and management were all great and ready to help someone else as soon as their first client tagged out. My guide Dylan was not afraid to take his pickup in the roughest terrain he could find to get away from people and into where the bulls were. Even when in a dry year I was still able to take a tremendous bull and it will look great beside the fireplace at my whitetail camp in PA. Thanks again for a great hunt and a special thanks to Paul and Tim for helping get my bull out.

Rick B.

Paul is a great guide; he is knowledgeable about the area, mule deer, and day to day planning. He had all the right equipment, great strategies for hunting canyons, intuition, was able to adapt to difficult hunting situations, accommodate my partners physical abilities, extremely well organized, “studied” the hunt every night, was a patient teacher to a hunter new to western hunting glassing techniques, allowed me to use his Best of the West rifle (to make a single 565 yard kill shot – woohoo!!), recruited the help of his awesome son Nate, and taught me how to skin/cape a deer (including a great tenderloin) without gutting the animal! There was great comradery (I felt as if I was among friends rather than hired a guide). He took the best photos I’ve ever seen (made the Diamond Holiday card that year)! This was seriously one of the best hunt experiences (my first with a guide) that I’ve ever had. I highly recommend Dan and Paul at Diamond Outfitters!!

George K.

Great “guide match” for me with Justin. One of the best I have had the privilege of hunting with. He was fun to be with, very knowledgeable and understood the potential of a 73-year-old elk hunter in me. He provided a most comfortable camper sleeping arrangement, particularly with the frigid temperatures that we were experiencing. Thank you for a great hunt and thank you for all you do for Veterans!

Tom C.

This was the first time I hunted mountain lion and I learned a lot from my guide. He was great; always kept me informed, explaining what we were doing and why. I had a great experience.

Ryan B.

Right from the start, Steven was very concerned about our frame of mind and insuring we had the best experience possible. I have been on several big game hunts out West but had never actually camped in a tent as we did on my Coues deer hunt. Steven went to great lengths to make our accommodations as comfortable as possible. I actually enjoyed this type of hunting verses “lodge sleeping”. I’m looking forward to future hunts with Diamond Outfitters!

Dave.

My guide, Pat Romero was fantastic! He was able to get me a nice bull even though I was not feeling well. He is a true professional.

Bob R.

I really, really enjoyed my coues deer hunt! It is beautiful country and an elusive animal. If I had done a DIY hunt, I would have been shut out. My guides glassing abilities were fantastic and essential to my hunt success. His unparalleled knowledge of the area was also key to my success. We saw several bucks and I missed my first opportunity, but then took a really nice buck at 580 yards. I will say that the Coues deer is a challenge and the hunt was more enjoyable than I thought it would be, largely because of the challenge. I would recommend Diamond Outfitters to any hunter.

Dan G.

The guides, camp, food and mules on my hunt were exceptional. I really enjoyed the hunt and will always recommend Diamond Outfitters.

Rich C.

Dan, I want to thank you and my guide Chris for a fantastic elk hunting experience. It was great that you could spend some days in camp with us too! The hunt was everything I expected, and it was thrilling to hear and see so many mature elk! Thanks for everything!

Bob S.

Diamond Outfitters is a class act. I had a great trip from start to finish. When the rut is slow and you’re still on elk every day, and even multiple times a day, that says something. We saw more shooter bulls than I could imagine. Sleeping quarters were great. Nothing got wet even when it rained a few days. The food was absolutely amazing. Overall, my hunt was way more than my dreams ever imagined.

Anonymous.

I can’t say enough positive comments about my guide! Great hunt – we concentrated on a couple of bulls over 400” because I have shot some large bulls with my bow in past years.

Anonymous.

My guide Pat was a true gem. Professional and personable while extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to be around. Pat has a rare talent of knowing the game animals as well as the clientele and is easily capable of addressing both in a professional manner. I was impressed by Pat’s willingness and patience to work through my health issues and provide the maximum experience possible while always attentive to the safety issues. He was a true “pack mule” and went above and beyond to make the hunt as easy as possible for me. He had everything we every could have needed and was very well prepared for success!

Donna M.

Dan, thank you and my guide Chris for the incredible elk hunt and services you provided. When I found out I had been drawn I couldn’t believe it. My husband and I discussed the issues at hand and decided I should hire a guide service. We did not know the area and I would be hunting alone. I slowly weeded through a list of 10 or so guide services and after many questions I felt comfortable that Diamond Outfitters was best suited to help me with my hunt.

Chris and I began our hunter-guide relationship long before the hunt and was ready to help me with any and all my concerns. Chris even met with me and my husband prior to the hunt to show us around the area I would be hunting, which greatly helped me to understand the rough terrain and high altitude that I was preparing for. Thanks to Chris and his expertise in guiding, I harvested a great elk at 190 yards, which is now in my freezer!

My living quarters for the hunt were great, good food and good people who were absolutely the greatest! I thank Chris and all his other friends I met on Thanksgiving Day, his wife and family for helping me have a fantastic hunt. I would recommend Diamond Outfitters to anyone looking for a first-class operation. Thank you for making a “hunter grandma” feel comfortable and successful with her hunt!

Diamond Outfitters is a first class, full-service outfitter that prides itself on quality, professionalism and taking care of even the small details. The communications from Dan Adler and my guide, Pat Romero, weeks and months before the hunt were second to none. This organization certainly earns a 5-star rating! The equipment, food and facilities were top-notch. My guide Pat is a renowned expert on Coues deer, and I was very fortunate to have him as my guide. He is not only extremely knowledgeable and hardworking, but is a true professional and a gentleman in every sense of the work. His son, Patrick assisted us as well on the hunt and first spotted the huge record book buck that I ultimately harvested. From my first meeting with Dan Adler two years ago at GSCO, I had a good feeling about Diamond Outfitters. My initial impression proved to be spot on and I have no need to look for another outfitter in this area of the country. Pat and Dan, thanks for your years of service to our great country and thanks for an absolutely awesome hunt!

Larry L.

The ability of my guides to spot these very difficult animals was impressive (Coues Deer). This is a very relaxed style of hunting with many hours spent glassing. If possible, I would encourage Coues hunters to have high powered optics as the deer are as difficult to see (even when you know their location) as any mountain game I’ve hunted. A spotting scope is essential too. Thanks for a great hunt and pleasant camp life!

My guide demonstrated a rare talent for being able to adapt to both male and female hunters and thought of everything to make the hunt truly enjoyable for us. Pat was patient, very attentive and handled himself very professionally throughout and truly seemed to enjoy what he was doing. It is rare that someone possesses the talent and patience to deal with novice hunters and anticipate their needs up to and including “walking them through the shot”! I enjoyed the hunt tremendously and look forward to future outings!

Mike C.

Pat Romero is a true professional. Best guide I’ve had anywhere in the USA!

Allan R.

Will and Mark made for a great guiding team for myself and my hunting partner in Unit 22N. Will has the abundant energy, enthusiasm and endurance. Mark was very knowledgeable and made good suggestions about where, when, and why we were going where we went to hunt. We thought everything was top-notch and were treated very well by Diamond Outfitters staff. Hope to see you all one day for an Arizona Desert Sheep hunt! Thanks again.

Wayne F.

If it were not for the determination of our guide to get both of us a buck on this hunt, I doubt it would have happened. We had to work hard to get away from other hunters and find good Coues bucks. Thanks both to our guide Vince and his brother for all their efforts on this Coues deer hunt with Diamond Outfitters.

Please give Logan a big pat on the back for his hard work and willingness to do whatever it takes to make it happen. He was so thoughtful and always making sure I was good and had no needs. He does not give himself enough credit for his abilities. We made a memory on Long Point that I will never forget! Thanks again.

Mark M.

I wanted to thank Diamond Outfitters for the opportunity to hunt with Nick this weekend. It was a successful mule deer hunt and we both enjoyed it (Nick was Stoked!). Our guide Layne was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Both Nick and I enjoyed the hunt and Layne’s hospitality. We are already talking about the next one!

Chris L.

Terrific outfitter with highly skilled, expert-level guides. Consummate professionalism in every facet–quality of animals, knowledge, camp life, and overall experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Diamond Outfitters to anyone unwilling to sacrifice on pursuing a world-class experience. I will certainly continue to hunt with them for years to come!

Wally H.

The effort, professionalism and courtesy offered by our guides was outstanding and, with effort, everyone in our camp got a shot opportunity. Hard to beat that anywhere

Jim C.

Just got back from an amazing black bear hunt with Diamond Outfitters. Mike, Layne, and their dogs are at the top of their game and they exceeded all expectations. Due to their expertise, I was able to get a huge boar. I am looking forward to many more hunting adventures with Diamond!

Alan A.

We had a great hunt in New Mexico. I will definitely hunt with Dan and team again.

Jon M.

This was my second time hunting with Diamond. My experience was top notch. Took a nice 180”+ buck and had opportunity on a 225” buck. My hunt, although scheduled for 10 days, was on a tight timeframe due to a family illness and I was on bucks each day and had several opportunities. I chose to take my buck so I could get back home for my family. Great camp, food, and guiding. I recommend this outfit time and time again.

Levi R.

Vince Martinez, a lead guide with Diamond, eats, sleeps, and breathes Unit 8. He knows the in’s and out’s of the unit and all game species within. He is constantly putting you on game. It is truly remarkable to watch him work. He’s a killer.

Brett V.

Mike and Layne truly know their mountain lion and bear hunting. Cannot wait to get back out with them!

Todd H.

From start to finish Diamond Outfitters was the real deal ! I was very specific in what I was looking for in a hunt and the team at Diamond was very open and honest with me at every step. All the Diamond team are very professional and very much experts at what they do. I would highly recommend D.O. To anyone regardless of age or previous hunting experience. There aren’t many outfitters out there that can even be mentioned in the same sentence as these gentlemen!

Brad T.

Hey guys, we just left and we can’t stop talking about the knowledge of your guides and how much we enjoyed the hunt. We understand the tough luck of the year but we still stood strong on how knowledgeable every guide we had were And that we were in the best spots We could be each day. We could tell you ate, slept, and breathed the business you all provide and had security in the feeling that you wanted us to bag our game as bad If not worse than us. That’s awesome to say the least. We want to definitely continue hunting with your establishment. From the camp cook Super Dave right down through the guides and up to Dan we couldn’t have been more pleased.

Debbi E.

I have known of Diamond Outfitters for several years, and I finally had the opportunity to go on one of their hunts. Everything about this outfitter is first class, from the tents to the guides, the food to the overall experience. I couldn’t have asked for much more in a hunt, and am looking forward to hunting with Dan and Diamond Outfitters again some day soon!

Bob D.

I had THE EPIC ELK HUNT! We had it all! The full experience! We had weather challenges (huge snow). Equipment challenges (due to snow). We saw a lot of bulls. Passed on a couple and took a really nice one. Big! Huge! This was my third hunt with them and I plan to go again. I have also referred others to them and will continue to do so!

Jerry C.

Solid group of guys!! Solid outfitter!! Had a great time even weathering through tough snow and wind on the late elk hunt. I’ve never seen so many critters as when I have hunted with Diamond Outfitters!! Would highly recommend these guys!! Thank you Dan Adler and all your crew for helping me take my best bull yet!

Doug O.

Joey was an outstanding guide and host. Will definitely hunt with him again!

Scott S.

The best overall hunt I’ve ever had. First guided hunt but hunted my whole life. Camp was a blast; good company and good food. Guide Joey was very impressive with glassing up all the Coues deer. Hopefully planning another hunt and only with Diamond Outfitters! Great guides, great time and communication was awesome.

David C.

Everyone I had contact with was friendly, professional and very helpful. Brandon did an excellent job along with David. Overall my hunt was very enjoyable because of the guides and I would recommend Diamond Outfitters to anyone looking for a good hunting experience!

Jason P.

These guys know Coues deer! They knew what the animal was going to do and when they were going to do it. All the guides in camp were focused on their number one goal of getting the hunter a trophy animal. Can’t say much more than a great job by a great group of guys! I hope I get to hunt with them again.

Cullen W.

Diamond Outfitters is a very well run professional operation. All of the people associated with my hunt were very good and my guide was one of the best I have ever hunted with. I would recommend Diamond to anyone who wants to enjoy a quality hunt with professional people.

Darrell R.

I really liked the service my guides gave me and the honest effort they made to make my hunt successful. These guys were a team that worked together very well, complimenting each other’s skills. It was a pleasure to be with them during the week-long hunt. The food was excellent, more than we could eat, and always ready shortly after getting back to camp. Our hunt ended successfully, ending my 40 year drought of putting venison on the table. The stalk was perfect, the kill was perfect, the mile long packout was great. The only thing they didn’t let me do was any of the heavy lifting. After the kill they did it all, leaving me to carry very little. I would do it again, sure would. Can’t wait to pull an elk tag. Thanks David, Brandon, and Diamond Outfitters!

Al K.

Pat and George were extremely tenacious and dedicated to the job that they had before them. I enjoyed hunting with both of them very much and look forward to coming back to hunt with them again! Diamond Outfitters in my opinion is a great full-service Outfitter with attention to details and dedication that I have seen only in a few Outfitters. We’ll come back, we’ll hunt again. Great guys and great guides!

Cory S.

The hunt I experienced with Diamond Outfitters was probably one of the best hunts I’ve been on. My guide put me on animals just as he promised. All the staff was awesome and made you feel at home. Couldn’t ask for much more than multiple bulls on the ground in camp the 3rd day into the hunt. Great hunt, staff, at a fair price. Thanks again Dan and team!!!

John C.

Diamond Outfitters made my dream come true. I always wanted to shoot an elk at long range. When the guides spotted a giant elk at 950 yards across on the other mountain it was a moment I will never forget. The intense pressure of shooting 950 yards, with 3 people watching and all the practice and preparing for this trip for five years was all in me making this shot. I put the blue diamond scope on 950 and my guide said slow, easy trigger squeeze. The 168 grain Berger vld hit that elk in the neck and he never even got up out of his bed. Diamond Outfitters and guides made my hunt of a lifetime, one I will always remember. Thank you very much.

Edward S.

Top notch outfitter, quality camp and good times. The kind of camp anyone would like to be a part of. I will definitely be back!

Dave G.

I have hunted with many other outfitters (7 or more). Diamond Outfitters is the best organized and most prepared Outfitter I have hunted with.

George T.

Guides are there to put you in the best place for the opportunity to harvest an animal, they cannot control the weather, or what other hunters will do. My Guide asked me what I was looking for and put me in the best spot possible to harvest that animal. The camp was comfortable and clean. Food was good and anything you could want was available. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help. With the caliber of animals that are taken by Diamond outfitter clients I will be back in camp…Soon!

John H.

I had a great time and all of the guide’s were top of the line.

Don R.

Our hunt was challenged by the hot weather and no rain but I always felt my guide had total control of my hunt. He made sure that I enjoyed the hunt every day. He and I laughed at my failures and I had fun hunting every day. My son and I both harvested Elk on the 13th day of our hunt. Hunt conditions can be beyond the control of the outfitter and I would encourage everyone who is fortunate enough to draw an Arizona archery elk tag to allocate 14 days to the hunt. For my son and I it was the hunt of a lifetime and I hope to live long enough to do it again. Kudos to our guides and outfitter! We were out of state hunters and we would not have been successful without Diamond Outfitters.

Hi Dan: I had a great hunt with Layne in unit 22. We saw nothing but Coues deer the first day but located a shooter early in the morning of the second day. He was in a group of 3 bucks feeding on a ridge across from where we were glassing about a 1000 yds away. After deciding to go after them, off the ridge we went down into a wide arroyo and up the other ridge to get within range of the largest of the 3 deer.
It was an uphill shot at 525 with the buck quartering away to the right and facing uphill. I held low on the ribcage and unfortunately hit him a little low in the right ham angling up into the body cavity. At the shot, he humped up and took 1 jump down hill and piled up in brush just below him. I can’t say enough about Layne’s skill’s as a guide and an outdoorsman. He is a credit to your outfit and I am looking forward to hunting with him again in the near future!

Dennis D.

Everyone at Diamond Outfitters was awesome! I had a great time – the camp life and hunting were excellent. My guides Andrew and Jake worked hard for me, plus we had a lot of laughs and I would enjoy hunting with them again.

Adam P.

Dan, Just wanted to say thank you! Erik and I had a great time at the shooting school and on our hunt! Both Justin and Layne were great guides. It was like we were just hunting with buddies the last two days. They are both great guides and are both amazing at shooting those deer! We can’t say a single bad thing about either or our experience with you guys! Definitely hope to hunt with you guys again sometime. Thanks again for the great week and the memories Erik and I will always be able to share.

Joe S.

We tagged out the first morning of our hunt. Our guide was obsessed with getting us what we wanted, which was a big bull elk. When we got there the day before our hunt, he immediately took us out to spot for elk so we we didn’t feel like we were going out the next morning blind. We had a great time and my guide was incredible, and took care of me and my Dad like we were family.

Frank M.

Diamond Outfitters, Dan Adler, Matt Woodward, Vincent Martinez…. I had a wonderful experience with Diamond Outfitters. The communication from Dan and Matt Prior to my arrival was without a doubt top notch. Everything from applying for tags, to gear lists. When I left home to travel to Southern Arizona I had Zero doubts I was in good hands. The camps were meticulous, the cook tent was very clean, fresh sani-huts, guide headquarters were neat, clean, and quiet. Diamond Outfitters hires only proven guides with proven equipment. Hunting in rough remote areas, being prepared for everything is always a concern. All of Diamond’s guides were prepared for everything. Everything from more than enough water to portable air compressors. Even spare ball joints and tools to replace parts in the field. We saw game every day. I knew it was just a matter of time and patience before I would have the opportunity to fill my tag. Post kill care of my animal was perfect. We had zero problems with immigrant traffic in southern Arizona on this hunt. Dan’s Best Of The West shooting school was a home run. First class outfit. I will be hunting with them again and will be referring friends and clients.

Nick.

Thanks Dan for a great hunt. My first mule deer hunt was a great success. Because of all the fires in Arizona this year, this was a tough unit to hunt in but Layne, our guide, did a great job and we took a nice mule deer on the second day of the hunt. It was awesome! Looking forward to hunting Coues deer with your outfit in the near future.

Larry D.

Dan Adler and the Team at Diamond Outfitters are true PROs that will ensure your success! Best Outfitter I have known in 50+ years for availability and answering questions. My guide, Dave’s thorough knowledge of the area made it possible for me to hunt in an area I physically could handle. Dave did a great job taking care of this 75 year old hunter while still ensuring my success!

Gary E.

Diamond Outfitters worked very hard to insure we had a good hunt. The guides’ understanding of property boundaries and their extremely high ethics were really appreciated. We will definitely book with Dan and team again.

Chris L.

Terrific outfitter with highly skilled, expert-level guides. Consummate professionalism in every facet–quality of animals, knowledge, camp life, and overall experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Diamond Outfitters to anyone unwilling to sacrifice on pursuing a world-class experience. I will certainly continue to hunt with them for years to come!

Jim C.

Just got back from an amazing black bear hunt with Diamond Outfitters. Mike, Layne, and their dogs are at the top of their game and they exceeded all expectations. Due to their expertise, I was able to get a huge boar. Diamond has always taken very good care of me both while in the field as well as any questions that I have. I am looking forward to many more hunting adventures with Diamond!

Jake H.

Dan Adler and his group are top notch! The shooting school is something every hunter planning on hunting the West should attend. His camp gear is first rate, well maintained and set up for your hunt. The guides are some of the most knowledgeable, friendly guys you would have the pleasure of hunting with. They not only know the deer they know how to make the hunt enjoyable and successful for the hunter. In short, a top notch outfit that anyone looking to hunt the West should strongly consider. Thank you Dan, David and Kevin for making my Coues deer hunt a resounding success in every aspect.

Dennis D.

Everyone at diamond outfitters was awesome I had a great time the camp life and hunting were excellent my guide Andrew and his friend Jake worked hard for me plus a lot of laughs ill hunt with them again

Wally H.

The effort, professionalism and courtesy offered by our guides was outstanding and, with effort, everyone in our camp got a shot opportunity. Hard to beat that anywhere

Mike and Layne truly know their mountain lion and bear hunting. Can not wait to get back out with them!
