Andrew Salgado, Jr. - Guide

Drew has been assisting on guided hunts since the age of 14. He officially started guiding in 2013. Drew has the experience, knowledge and instinct that makes him a top-notch guide. Drew is a natural!  He has produced countless big game trophies for his hunters since day one.  Drew is a very respectful young man, but he doesn't like his knowledge and expertise questioned. He knows the country better than anybody that guides for us. If you are looking for a hunt of a lifetime, Drew is your man, but don't guide the guide especially in this case!

Chris Padilla - Guide

Born and raised in New Mexico. I have known about the Matthews brothers and their success hunting public lands in New Mexico for many years and for many years I've tried to get them to guide for H&A. Finally, in 2016, I was lucky enough to get two of them to guide for us. Big Sean will go the extra miles to make sure you have a successful hunt. In the past four years him and his hunters have enjoyed lots of success and one of them harvesting a bull of a lifetime.
