About Darrel Wise
As a young boy, Darrel
was an avid duck hunter who had a burning desire to learn to hunt the big birds—Honkers.
dad was not a goose hunter so he
had no source for the required know-how.
paid close attention on that first, and each subsequent trip with Lyle and has since added an entire inventory of his own special little tricks.
They have definitely changed the way most hunters think about silhouette decoys and the thousands of them in the grain fields of the world have added greatly to the hunting successes of their owners and for that, Darrel
is very happy.
also acknowledges the form of complement and flattery paid by the many people and companies who have sprang up with similar decoys, but as is generally the rule, you just can't beat the original.
says there is a lot more to making a good decoy than just taking a picture and reproducing it on a substrate.
Case in point, the new Pro-Series decoys.
They will definitely change the face of goose hunting for the next millennium.
is thankful for the opportunity to have contributed something to the wonderful world of water fowling with his
decoys, but his
greatest personal pleasure comes from seeing the smiles on the faces of the first time Honker hunters, and knowing that they are going to be better, more successful goose hunters for the rest of their lives as a result of their learning experience with him.
The quality time spent between fathers and children while on a hunting vacation with Darrel
is certain to become one of their lifelong best memories.
is proud of the fact that many people who have hunted the world, but hadn't experienced Honkers over decoys have told him that it was their greatest hunting experience ever.
That is what his
personal goal on every hunt is ... to give you the best hunting memory of your life.
A tall order, but one that is very often filled!
The editor of the largest waterfowl publication once called him the "King of Close."
says that there is no such thing as too close.
The closer they get, the better the memory.
This is just what Darrel wants to pass along to you.
The knowledge and ability to get Honkers to drop their landing gears over your decoys and in your face!
has been featured in virtually every major hunting publication and several smaller ones too.
The then editor of Ducks Unlimited Magazine
was once quoted in Peterson's Hunting saying that no one on the face of this planet does it any better than Darrel Wise
has also been on four outdoor television shows and several radio programs and he
was recently the first professional guide to be picked to contribute to a new and upcoming column in Wildfowl Magazine
on tips from the pros.
would like to show you a great time at his
facility in Alberta and share his
knowledge with you.
A double win situation that you should definitely take advantage of!
The cumulative effect of many small details is the stuff that superstars are made of and it's those kinds of details that Darrel
will teach you when you hunt with him.
is one of the lucky few outfitter/guides who is still happily married.
lovely and supportive wife of nearly 25 years, Cindy, runs her
own goose related business, V-Line Productions.
Darrel and Cindy
recently moved from Washington State to the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana to enjoy the abundant wildlife, incredible beauty, and to be closer to Alberta.
