One of the best things an outfitter can do, is to ensure he provides the best experience possible for his clients. Being part of my Endorsed Outfitter Program, ensures that outfitters are continuing to enhance and maintain that quality. One way an outfitter maintains the metric of quality is by engaging with other outfitters and combining the strengths of the peers in the industry. Collectively we must maintain a …how do we improve mindset. This is how we improve the client experience.

Clay Johnson, of the 5 J Ranch has incorporated those excellent practices into his program. The guest services, hunting opportunities and game management practices of his hunting and guest operation in Central Texas will not let you down. His game management program proves that an out of the box approach can lead to exceptional results. He reminds me a lot of Hunter Ross, in the way he has implemented his unique management programs through the trials of getting it right. The success of this approach is evident in the many great outfitters that I have visited in my lifetime. Clay will tell you a ranch has a mind of its own, in every regard, whether you are a guest or a steward of the land, “…what you put into it is what you get out of it!...” Clay has worked for many years to produce, what I consider to be, a fantastic hunting destination in the heart of Texas. The lodge and facilities are amazing with incredible views. The processing facilities are substantial and spotless. They have created a truly great operation with a very thoughtful approach to hunting and entertaining their guests. Hunting with the 5 J Ranch will be an experience that will make you feel like you are a part of their family.
