Mike Hawkridge

Mike is an owner as well as the guide outfitter and operations manager (staff coordination and infrastructure development) for BCO. He is a lifelong hunter, professional hunter, and outdoorsman, with 20 years of guiding experience. Whether on the hills chasing sheep or in the swamps pursuing bulls, Mike is the guide most clients wish for. Along with his wife, Karen (the friendly voice on the other end of the phone), they own and operate a ranch in the Baker Creek area. Along with cattle, the ranch is also home to the entire herd of horses that is used by the outfit. Although they are typically on the “dead run” getting things done, drop them a quick email, they’ll get back to you as quickly as they can.
