This company's operational concept is based on providing a blend of outfitting hunting services to accommodate hunter's needs, as well as providing wildlife management services to private landowners. WSI has grown into a capable full service operation employing two full-time staff biologists, as well as a strong support staff including office personnel and field support. Our land base is huge, including many private properties totaling over 500,000 acres, most of which we have exclusive hunting rights. We currently offer hunts for whitetail deer, mule deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, Rio Grand wild turkey, dove, predators, wild hogs, free range aoudad sheep, free range nilgai antelope and other exotic game species.
WSI's credible service has been documented through coverage in many outdoor publications including Outdoor Life, Petersen's Hunting, Shooting Times, North American Hunter, American Hunter, Guns & Hunting, Texas Wildlife, Texas Parks & Wildlife, Texas Fish & Game, Whitetail Strategies, Blackpowder Guns & Hunting and others. Our company has also been seen on several major television networks including TNN, ESPN, Outdoor Life Network, and The Outdoor Channel.
Since 1987, we have hosted exotic, whitetail and mule deer hunts for over 5,000 clients from around the globe, and we annually host hunts for hunters from over 25 states and multiple foreign countries. The quality of our customer service package was recognized by North American Hunting Club as we were chosen as their 2002 Dodge Outfitter of the Year, from a list of over 450 outfitters in North America. The key to quality customer service in any business is having a support staff that is sensitive toward the specific needs of their clientele. We are proud of the core group of staff that makes up the Wildlife Systems Team. Their natural talents are developed through organized company training and through disciplined business philosophies oriented at fostering a work ethic provided by few businesses in this field. The result is a collective group capable of catering to your needs so that you will leave your hunt with a rewarding and memorable experience.
