Babe's Trophy Shiras Moose

The R & K Hunting Company is the most professional hunting outfitters I have ever hunted with in more than 30 years of hunting all over the world.

The R & K Hunting Company had the privilege of hosting well-known hunting and fishing celebrity Babe Winkelman for a trophy Shiras Moose hunt in the fall of 2012. The hunt, “Scoping Out Utah Moose,” will air on NBC Sports Network and other channels for one week beginning Monday, August 12 and again for another week starting November 11.

Babe Winkelman’s Outdoor Secrets is an award-winning hunting show based on his lifetime of global hunting expertise. Babe is very picky about whom he hunts with, and Shiras Moose was a species that remained on his bucket list. He jumped at the chance to hunt with R & K Hunting Company, arguably the best hunting outfitter operation in the western U.S. with over one million acres of stunningly beautiful private hunting property.

“The R & K Hunting Company is the most professional hunting outfitters I have ever hunted within more than 30 years of hunting all over the world,” Babe said of his experience. “Upon arrival at the lodge, I was blown away by the accommodations! The lodge is simply amazing. I have a very nice home, and this place was even nicer than my own place.” Babe was not only impressed with the accommodations—he also raved about the outstanding cooking, fleet of Polaris ATVs, and professionalism of the whole package.

Then there’s the hunting. Dedicated to the Cooperative Management Wildlife Unit (CMWU) philosophy, R & K manages their private hunting ranches by controlling the number of animals harvested each year. With careful oversight, they offer hunters better odds of taking home a trophy mule deer, elk, or Shiras Moose. Due to their high success rates, individualized guide service, amazing options for accommodations, and home cooked meals, they have a 90 percent return rate in regards to hunters returning year after year.

Justin Richins, one of R & K’s owners, personally served as Babe’s guide. “We set our sights high at R & K Hunting Company,” said Richins. “When we started out, we knew we wanted to offer the best of everything to our hunters—the best property, the most mature trophy animals, the best guides, the best accommodations, and just the best overall hunting experience. It is very fulfilling to see our dreams come to fruition.”

Along with the NBC Sports Network, the show will also air on Velocity. Check your local listings for airtime or look at Babe Winkelman’s website. Get ready to watch what the hunt of a lifetime looks like!
