Welcome to Trophy Guide Services!  The home of Ryan Tewksbury.  Ryan has been guiding hunts on land and under water since 1999.  

His career of getting his clients close to giant trophy class animals started after graduating from Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI.  The Sanctuary Ranch offered a start into the world of guiding and his service there led to his entrance into western game hunts with Sierra Grande Outfitters.

Ryan has ventured into the world of underwater guiding.  Teamed up with his friend Eric Billips (an experienced scuba dive master and instructor) the two of them started Florida Fish and Dive Charters.  The duo guided several successful hunts on wrecks and reefs from Ft. Myers to the lower Keys. 

Ryan's western experience guiding hunts has been primarily in eastern Colorado and old Mexico.  After years of service with Sierra Grande, he headed back to whitetail country in south Eastern Iowa with Timberghost Ranch where he has successfully guided several hunts since 2008 including several deer breaching the covented 200" mark.

Ryan had a dream season guiding in Sonora Mexico where he lead his clients to many trophy class Desert Mule deer.   One of the deer his clients harvested was a 220" desert mule deer.  This deer was one of the largest deer harvested in Mexico in a previous season.  Check the HUNTING page for photos. This Trophy deer was featured in the pages of Trophy Hunter Magazine and Muley Crazy Magazine.

Ryan also guided several hunts for Squaw Mountain Ranch, one of which was a 226" whitetail.  also check the HUNTING page for photos.  This deer won several contest in Texas for its mass as well as its overal size.  It is currently displayed in the pages of Texas Trophy Hunter magazine each month.

Below are some of the trophies harvested.

Two pronghorn taken in New Mexico, one of which made the record books.

Late one September, Ryan headed to Iowa to guide and film a few whitetail hunts where his clients took two big bucks with rifles and two whitetails with a bow.

TGS's then went to Iowa again that November and helped harvest a 182" white tail.
