Ron and Geraldine Lavoie
We started the “Otter Creek Outfitters” journey before we were married. That was over 30 years ago now and what an incredible adventure, filled with many great friends and so many wonderful memories. The main reason I got into the guiding life is simply because I love to hunt and spend time in the woods. I also really enjoy making other peoples dream hunts come true. There is no feeling like sharing those “special” moments with a friend. If you are a hunter, you will know exactly what I am talking about. The good Lord willing, we look forward to many more years of the guide life and more of those cherished “memories”.
We could never hope to have the quality of hunts that we do without our dedicated and reliable crew.
Ten years in the guiding industry. Cal has been deer hunting since he was old enough to carry a gun, which is quite a while now. Cal is like the “GLUE” that holds the camp together, he can fix about anything, no matter who tears it up or breaks it and he will always smile while fixing it up. (pictured on the right)
Ronnie Sawatsky (AKA: The “Chef”)
Ronnie has been in the guiding industry (guiding and cooking) for 26 years and is looking forward to many more. As Ronnie says around meal time in the lodge, “The food must be good, it sure is quiet in here”.
Mike, has four amazing years of guiding with us. Mike lives for the outdoors and he will always be there when you need him. He is a wonderful addition to our team.
Greg has hunted whitetail deer for at least 30 years now and is another self confessed “Deer Addict”. Greg has been in the guiding industry for several years now, he takes time off from his “Real” job to come and play in the forest with us. He is the “SAFETY” guy around camp and that is probably a good thing since his older brother has a tendency to get into some precarious situations, then Greg and Cal will come to the rescue.
