“BEST GUIDES EVER!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We had such an amazing experience with this company we used them twice on our trip to Jackson Hole. We went on a private fishing trip with Steve who was an amazing teacher and really cool guy to hang with for the afternoon. It was such a great experience we decided to take a day trip to yellowstone through Brushbuck as well. Our guide, Clint, was EXCELLENT. His knowledge of the area and the wildlife was such a bonus to the trip. Both guides were amazing and so friendly and fun. I could not give this company any higher of a recommendation.

Yellowstone country is amazing to experience in October, as you did. The weather can be off and on but when it's good, the animal viewing is out of this world!
Our guides, Steve and Clint, are so knowledgable and know how to make your day very fun and interesting. We are so happy you agree!
You and I talked about your next visit out here so please let us know when you start to make those plans and we'll be here to assist!
Thanks for the review!

Sincerely,
Amber Peters

“Grouse and Moose and Bears, Oh My!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

My husband and I just made our twenty something trip to Jackson Hole/Yellowstone. This time to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Our first treat to ourselves on the menu was a morning spent in our beloved Tetons with BrushBuck Guide Services.
It was an awesome morning, tailored just for the two of us. We know all the local info and tourist pull-outs. We wanted back roads and habitats where we might get good or great shots of wildlife. We were not one bit disappointed. Our guide took us to new habitats and old familiar habitats. We observed and filmed bald eagles, bears, antelopes, elk, lots of moose and more. All in just a four hour morning Teton trip.
Thanks, BrushBuck for making this visit to Jackson Hole so very special. Prior to coming your office staff was great with all my questions and request. After we got there your guide was just precious! and so very very well informed. It was worth whatever the charge.

“Day trip from Moran, Wy to Yellowstone National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Clint Peterson was guide for the 10 hour trip and did an excellent job of finding a lot of wildlife that we would not have seen on our own. We saw a lot of elk and bison. Very knowledgeable on all sites visited. Snacks and soft drinks were provided. Well worth the price that at first I thought was a little pricey.

“Don't miss touring around Tetons and Yellowstone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My wife and spent two days --Oct 18th and 19th 2012 touring the area with Howie, whose vast knowledge of the areas fauna and flora, geological marvels, and historical knowledge of the greater Yellowstone area made for a once-in-a-life time experience. Not only did he spot the wildlife of the area including bald eagle, pronghorns, bison, deer, elk, and more, but we viewed the animals through a high powered scope that brought everything up close. He provided high powered binoculars as well, types far stronger than the ones I carried along. We traveled the prairie areas, the lake areas, back roads, riversides, mountainsides, lake sides, and geyser areas (in Yellowstone). We saw and viewed things I'd never find on my own. Howie's knowledge is encyclopedic so that he expanded on everything from the migration of the wildlife to the substance they ate. Brushbuck also furnished snacks and sodas to nibble and drink. I highly recommend that everyone take the 4 hour trip one day and the 12 hour the next day.

Your review highlights what we convey to each of our guests that are short on time. We recommend a 4 Hour Grand Teton Tour towards the first part of your vacation and then a tour in Yellowstone a couple of days later. This will give you the biggest bang for your buck when you are short on time here.
We are so happy you agree and that you had a wonderful time with us!
Please let us know when you'd like to visit again where we can let you know the best dates to come out for the best wildlife!

Sincerely,
Amber Peters

“wildlife, wildlife, wildlife!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

My husband and I, along with my brother and sister in-law, went out with Brushbuck for two days in September. Our first day was in Grand Teton with Howie. As wildlife was our main interest, he catered the tour toward this. We saw a black bear, lots of pronghorn, elk (including a huge bull), mule deer, bison, trumpeter swans, and osprey. Howie was also very courteous in assisting me with my camera equipment that I brought along for the trip. Our second day was spent with Ashley in Yellowstone. The Yellowstone tour is a long day, but Ashley was very entertaining and knowledgeable. We had numerous scenic stops on this trip including Yellowstone Falls and Old Faithful. In addition, we were able to see more elk and bison, but the highlight of the day was seeing a wolf and a grizzly mom and cub fight over a carcass. Spotting wildlife is always by chance. but these guides were very knowledgeable with the animal movement patterns. We greatly enjoyed our tours and would highly recommend this company. Thanks again from the Boyett/Taylor party.

You just can't beat watching a wolf and grizzly fight over a carcass! That is just awesome that we were were able to provide that lifelong memory for you!
Howie and Ashley are very fun guides to have on a tour. Each has their own speciality and knows how to make your day in the parks amazing.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and we look forward to showing you around the wild world in the future!
