I had a Great time hunting with El Fuerte Outfitters. The guides worked hard and were very attentive to our needs. Ty and his staff took care of all the details from the time we landed in San Jose Del Cabo to the time we left. I was able to complete my Grand Slam with a great group of people. Thanks for the Great Experience!

Every once in awhile you come across a guy that will go the extra mile to make your trip a success. That guy is Ty Miller. From the paper work to the arrival and departure at the airport he’s got you covered. I’ve been fortunate enough to accompany 5 of my clients on Desert Sheep hunts with Ty and we have never had a bad trip. On those hunts I have had the pleasure to hunt with ALL of the head guides in El Fuertes operation and have only good praise for them all. Not only are these guides good hunters but they are unbelievable spotters, do a excellent job making sure you are safe and most of all having a great experience. For my hunt I hunted with Roberto, the son of Jose, Ty’s oldest most experienced head guide. This hunt was Roberto first head guide job and did he ever perform! His excellent English made my trip for me. we laughed and hiked and hiked and hiked, seeing sheep around every corner. We made a great play on my beautiful ram and Roberto even videoed my shot allowing me to share this moment with my family and friend at home. The hunt completed my Grand Slam and I wouldn’t have chosen another Outfitter to give me the best chance at success. I’m a real mountain sheep hunter and this is a real sheep hunt. Anyone else looking a real sheep hunt? This right here is your real deal Desert Sheep Hunt!

From the moment you’re whisked through the airport process in Cabo you know that Ty Miller is in control and everything is going to be great. Ty is Mr. Baja! He was on top of every detail every step of the way. He is such a gracious host. We were not able to even pay for the ice cream stops along the road. I had no idea that Mexico had such tough terrain though. Though we saw sheep every day we hunted hard until the ninth day when the guides put me on the ram of my dreams. The guides are awesome. They can find the needle in the haystack! It was as Ty had advised us; we not only had great guides, we made great friends. I’m not used to the pampering I got on this trip. The comfortable and beautiful camp, the great food, the rugged beauty of the desert mountains, these are memories that will last a lifetime. Had I shot my ram early in the hunt I would not have appreciated the essence of the real desert bighorn sheep hunt. If you’re looking for lifetime memories with an outfitter of great integrity and concern for not only his clients but the sheep as well, this is the hunt!

Grand Slam at 76

Ty Miller [owner, El Fuerte outfitters] is the best in the business and his guides are truly outstanding. They all worked together to make this the hunt of a lifetime for me.

It took me fifteen days of some of the most difficult hunting I ever experienced --- but on that very last day, I became the 1712th person in the word to join the elite Grand Slam Club. The photographs are of my Desert Bighorn Sheep; which added to my collection of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, Dall Sheep, and Stone Sheep --- complete the “Grand Slam of North American Wild Bighorn Sheep.” The Grand Slam Club does not keep a record of personal statistics; however they tell me I may be the oldest man ever to accomplish that feat --- or at least one of the oldest. Thank you Ty, Jose, Roberto, and Andre.

I booked my desert bighorn hunt with Ty Miller at the Wild Sheep Show in Reno, February of 2011, after a good deal of research and several conversations. My hunt was booked for 10 days, March 8-17, 2012. Due to a series of circumstances, I was unable to connect with a ram during my first hunt period. Ty was able to renew my permit for an additional 10 days through the governing "ejido" (sheep conservation reserve) at a reasonable cost to me for an additional hunt period, March 29-April 7, 2012. I returned to Mexico and was able to connect with a beautiful ram on March 30. Ironically, the ram I took was the same ram I had an opportunity to take during my previous hunt.

I've hunted world-wide for the past 15 years and can say, without reservation, that the camp setting for our hunt across the bay from the fishing village of Agua Verde on the Sea of Cortez was the most spectacular and beautiful that I have experienced. The guides and staff were accommodating and friendly. Pickup at the airport in Cabo San Lucas was prompt and overnight hotel accommodations in Cabo were excellent. Ty went above and beyond the call of duty to obtain an additional hunt opportunity for me to ensure that I collected my trophy. The ram was gorgeous, completing both my Grand Slam of Sheep and Super Slam of all North American big game species. I am deeply indebted to Ty and his group for a wonderful experience.

My hunt was one in a lifetime. The rugged beautiful country was just as exciting as the hunt. The guides did a great job putting me on several sheep to choose from in two days - Great Hunt!

I recently hunted a desert bighorn sheep with Ty Miller's El Fuerte Outfitters in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Ty's 11 yrs of cultivating good relations with the Ejido tribe, his hard work and conservation ethics, made hunting with these folks a pleasure. At no time did I feel remotely unsafe, and true to his word, I did not pay a penny for transportation, lodging, or meals while in Mexico. Ty and his team do everything possible to make your hunt successful, including a liberal wound and extension of hunt policy. All in all, I couldn't have been taken better care of, and by the way, the grand slam ram is on the wall!

“My hunt with El Fuerte Outfitters was incredible”
Ty Miller does not miss a single detail, from managing the process and permits at the airport, to traveling to and from the hunting areas, to working with professional and pleasant guides and camp staff. Everyone involved went out of their way to ensure a great experience. The hunting areas are spectacular, and the fact that I was able to take a trophy ram made this a trip I will never forget.

Hunted mid March in a very traditional style, back-packing water and all supplies. Such is sheep hunting. The temperature was hotter than a fire cracker, however, we hunted hard and long, and eventually found the ram I had hoped for to complete my slam. The guides were friendly, professional, and possessed good eyes. The country was much rougher than I expected, even after personally guiding over 100+ sheep hunters in North America for Bighorn, Stone and Dall sheep. That said, I really enjoyed the experience, the people, and the Baja. Thanks for all Ty!
Yours in Sheep Hunting

"If you are considering a challenging traditional Desert Sheep Hunt, El Fuerte Outfitters is the Hunt! Ty Miller sets up the hunt with impeccable attention to detail allowing the hunter to focus on a fantastic Mexican experience. The guides were absolutely in their element along with the camp cooks and wrangler, giving us the confidence that success is only a matter of time. We looked over many rams and were able to harvest a 10+ Year old on Day 8 of the hunt. To have my son and brother along to share the experience of the completion of my Grand Slam is immeasurable. Thanks to Ty and his team for a great Sheep Hunting experience!"

Anyone who has hunted sheep knows what a significant investment in time and money a sheep hunt can be. Deciding who to trust to make that once in a lifetime hunt successful and enjoyable experience was, to me, a major leap of faith. I was extremely fortunate to land with Ty Miller and El Fuerte Outfitters.

From our first phone conversation until well after my hunt was over and I was back home Ty has been helpful, honest, professional, and organized. All paperwork permits, and inspections were handled very efficiently. Glitches were few and quickly resolved.

My hunt area was awesome---remote, rugged, and beautiful. Through the hard work of my guides I was able to take a very nice ram. It was a challenging hunt but most sheep hunters wouldn't have it any other way.

As much as I enjoyed the hunt, and as pleased as I am with the ram that I took, equally as memorable are the people that I met and the friends that I made. Not only is Ty Miller a first class outfitter, he is also deeply committed to the welfare of the desert bighorn sheep. He realizes that they are an irreplaceable resource that needs to be conserved and protected. My guides, Jorge and Alvaro, are simple, hardworking people who know the country, know sheep hunting, and love what they do.

To all of my friends at El Fuerte Outfitters, my deepest thanks for an experience that I will never forget. If you are looking for a desert bighorn sheep hunt, look no further than Ty Miller and El Fuerte Outfitters.

My father Roy and I had a very special sheep hunt with Ty Miller and his crew. We spent quality time with our guides, interpreters, and camp staff and really enjoyed the whole Mexico sheep hunt experience. I was lucky enough to take my sheep on the 6th day of my hunt after a long hot stalk. I am extremely happy with my ram and would highly recommend Ty and his people to anyone that wants a truly earned desert sheep experience. Kudos to all and especially to Ty for his honesty and organized hunts.

Thanks to Ty Miller and the entire crew at El Fuerte Outfitters for an outstanding cultural and hunting experience. Hunting in the desert was a total pleasure. I had convinced myself that a desert sheep hunt was just another sheep hunt but I couldn't have been more wrong. I encourage anyone considering a desert sheep hunt to go if at all possible and highly recommend Ty Miller and his excellent team at El Fuerte Outfitters for your hunt of a lifetime in old Mexico.

I can't thank Ty Miller and El Fuerte Outfitters enough. Everything was as advertised and I took this nice ram on day five of my hunt. The guides were great fun to be with, and Ty is on top of the logistical details that a hunt in Mexico entails. Anyone who wants to hunt desert sheep should look no farther than El Fuerte for a quality experience.

I had a great hunt with Ty Miller's El Fuerte Outfitters. It was an April hunt so the weather was warm and fortunately the guides put me on sheep right away. My ram was the 9th of the 1st day's hunt. The guides were excellent and totally knew their stuff. I fully intend to hunt with Ty's outfit again.

Ty, Thanks for all your hard work to make my desert bighorn hunt such a big success. El Fuerte outfitters does a great job of attending to all the details involved in the complexities of hunting in Mexico. The guides' knowledge of the terrain and of the quarry, coupled with their exceptional ability to spot and to stalk the sheep, makes the chances of success for hunters extremely high.

If I were to hunt desert sheep again, Ty Miller would be my first choice. These sheep herds have not been hunted which means that there are mature rams.

The El Fuerte hunting areas offer the potential for record class Boone and Crockett sheep. The age structure of the rams seen and taken over the last few years prove this point. I truly believe that these hunts offer some of the best prospects today for the taking of a trophy desert sheep.

I want to thank Ty Miller of El Fuerte Outfitters for securing a permit for me to hunt in the Ejido Bonfil “Biosphere” area. I was scheduled to hunt with El Fuerte Outfitters this season but Ty was able to get me into the Biosphere. His attention and follow up for my  hunt was second to none. I look forward to my hunt with El Fuerte Outfitters next season. Thanks Ty!
