It all began in the early 80’s when owner, Shawn Kelso, went on his first hunting trip, shooting dove near San Antonio, with his dad. Since then he has been hooked on the outdoors, hunting many different types of game offered in Texas. Although he enjoys them all, his passion has always been wing shooting. Throughout the years, Shawn’s family always raised dogs, but he never had a true “hunting dog” of his own until 2008. He selected a female chocolate Labrador Retriever puppy from Jeff Caldwell of the San Tomas Hunting Camp at the King Ranch. In the past 6 years, Cheyenne has taught Shawn as much about how to train a hunting dog as he has taught her about how to hunt. His bond with her has further fueled his love of bird hunting. He doesn’t claim to know everything there is to know, but is always happy to take the time to discuss training and hunting with anyone.

Note from Shawn: I have hunted and fished with many guides over the years. Some put us on limits, but possessed no personality or lacked customer service skills. Others couldn’t manage to get us in the same county as the game we were hunting, but were knowledgeable, taught me new techniques, and tried very hard. I much prefer the latter; however, I have friends who judge a trip solely by the harvest. So I understand that everyone has different expectations. With that in mind, we will always strive to communicate as much as possible prior to your self-guided hunt or during your guided hunt. If you have questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to ask. Meeting YOUR expectations is our #1 priority!

Edward Hulsmann - Guide


Edward was born and raised in Navasota, TX. He practically grew up in the muddy waters of the Navasota river. One would be hard pressed to find another outdoorsman well versed in so many aspects of hunting and fishing. Many of Edward’s close friends often wonder how he graduated from Texas A&M in 1999 since ducks pushing in with a cold front often took precedence over early morning classes. Edward has guided waterfowl, deer, hog, and alligator hunts for various local guides over the past 15 years. He passes the time between hunts as a firefighter in Houston, TX.
