Rifle Season

We offer a 5 day hunt with a ratio of four hunters to one guide for $1500.  This includes hunting from dawn to dusk, transportation to and from Buford to your hunting site, and help packing out and taking game back to Buford.  We use 4-wheel drive vehicles to travel to the hunting areas each morning and return to Buford each night.  We hunt from dawn to dusk every day no matter the weather.  The method of hunting depends on many factors and can adjust the hunt to meet your physical needs.  

Archery and Muzzle

We offer a 5 day hunt with flexible schedules to begin your hunt.  We are a total limited license are and availability varies widely.  Please call for details.  Price is $1500 per person with a 3 to 1 ratio.  (Two person minimum)  We provide the same pack out and transportation as rifle season.  We hunt the same dawn to dusk but many days will take a break mid day when animal activity is low.  

Tom Tucker

Buford Guide Service was started in 1958 by Harry Tucker, my father.  During the early years guiding was uncomplicated and a very relaxed operation.  Dad took hunters out in old army jeeps and it wasn't uncommon to see elk herds in the hundreds.  As with all things change has occurred.  Our guide service is now run by myself, my sons Steve and Mark Tucker, and son-in-law John Vattano.  


My personal background with the White River area began in 1958.  I was raised at Buford and spent every possible minute in the woods.  I have hunted deer and elk for 45 years and have activly guided for over 40 years.  Steve and Mark also grew up hunting this area
