Is ZOF and Diamond Outfitters a Full Time Outfitter?
Yes and we cannot stress enough how important a distinction this is in our industry. Very few, if any, other outfitters in Arizona or New Mexico are full time. This means we have no other occupational distractions from focusing on you and your hunt success. As you “shop around” ask the outfitter if they are full time, scouting and prepping for your hunt!
Who are the guides?
Most of the ZOF and Diamond Outfitters guides are military Veterans, Law Enforcement Officers, Fire Department and Ambulatory first-responders, Custom and Border Patrol Agents, past Game Wardens and local cowboys. We find the caliber of individuals associated in these industries provide us a level of unmatched integrity in the outdoor industry and matches our companies goal of providing employment opportunities for our Nation’s heroes.
Are you licensed, permitted and insured?
Can a non-hunter be in camp with us?
Yes! We believe family and friends are what make the outdoor experience complete! The non-hunter fee is typically $200 per hunting day and include all the benefits the hunting client receives but (obviously) is not carrying a firearm or hunting. They may stay in camp, or go into the woods with you as coordinated with your guide.
Do you have discounts for junior hunters?
How far will my shot be?
Every hunt is so different. As a general rule, it would be nice for our rifle clients to be able to shoot to 350-400 yards and maybe more. We know this is difficult for some of our clients and it’s our job as your guides to get you as close as you need to be comfortable. We have Best of the West Long Range Rifles and Huskemaw elevation and windage enabled scopes ready for incredible, ethical, long range shots available in some camps with proper coordination with your guide. Archery clients should be practicing to 60 yards and be proficient from 40-50 yards for spot and stalk and up to 40 yards for blinds and tree stand hunting.
How physical are the hunts?
As a general rule, the more physically fit you are, the more options we have as your guide. That being said we guide wounded Veterans, disabled hunters and mobility challenged hunters on hunts all the time. If you can hike 2-6 miles a day in moderate country you’ll be prepared for our hunts. If you cannot we will still accommodate you with a variety of options that include, ground blinds, tree stands, sitting over trails, water etc. We can truly accommodate anyone!
Where can I meet someone from ZOF and Diamond Outfitters?
