As you know, I just came back from Russia. I got a Kuban Tur and a Mid Caucasian Tur. Definitely, since I’ve been taking the SAAM trainings I feel much more confident with my gun and shots. I couldn’t imagine mountain hunting without the knowledge you provide. Thanks! Beto

Another great hunt, thanks SAAM! Larry

I just returned from a sheep/caribou/moose hunt in the NWT, and wanted to thank you again for the excellent instruction I received at your school. I was focused on building my house when I took this sheep at 425 in the snow. Two other hunters had misses on this hunt, and I am convinced that your class has made me much more effective. Thanks again, and please tell everyone hello! Eric

Took this beautiful Stone Sheep last week in the Yukon.....493 yards and shoot to distance was 410....steep downward angle shot. All the prep and training at FTW again really paid off....it’s amazing how much confidence we have on these longer shots after going through the SAAM course. Thanks again and look forward to seeing y’all in November! Thanks! Joe

I knew the left to right wind would be an issue. But when we got into position for the shot, I didn’t feel the wind, turns out the wind was whipping through the valley. This likely would have been a gong show if not for the SAAM Training and subsequent practice! Thanks guys! Kemp

SAAM confidence on display. 1 shot. Quick second for confirmation. Headed to processor. Thanks again to those that help make dreams come true! Mike

Hope all is well back at SAAM. Had a wonderful and interesting MuskOx hunt in Greenland. Made a perfect shot at 176 yards with my .375, it was a good stalk. Have been practicing all most every day with my .22mag. However I am worried about the Marco Polo, a guy we met on the Greenland trip said he had to shoot his out at 536 yards. So when I come next Spring I really want to focus on those 500 yard shots. That hunt is in December 2020. Somehow shooting a ‘gong’ at 500 yards does not translate into shooting an animal at 500 yards in my head yet. Best wishes to my SAAM family. Siri

I came to the FTW/SAAM Course and left feeling better than I can even tell you. Outfitter says it’s been a long time since someone shot that well and he has hosted some of the biggest names in the industry. Literally every animal dropped where it stood. Thank you so much to you and your team, MC

Hello FTW! It was a great trip. First buffalo was a good, fast stalk, got in front of the herd, about a 90-100 yds with the Lott. The Impala, a pretty long shot (for me at least, with a big caliber) with the 375, 225-250 yds. The second buffalo was a dugga boy in the thicker stuff, about 100 yds with the Lott. He was bigger, older, better horns, warier, and a much longer stalk, maybe about 3 hours. My thanks to you guys for helping me to get ready for those quick shots off the sticks! Hope everybody is well at the ranch. Best always, Raymond

Wanted to drop you, Dave, and Doug (and the rest of the team at FTW) a quick note. Just got home from a Dall Sheep hunt in the North West Territory and took this amazing 11 year old ram....to say it was an incredible hunt would be an understatement! There is no question in my mind that without the training I have had over the years at the SAAM Course I would have NEVER made the shot...the ram was 458 yards away and the shot to distance was 426. I had to build my base in a bolder pile and could only get in the sitting position....used all the training from SAAM. This was a shot I would have never taken before going through the training with y’all but I had the confidence and there was no question I was going to execute....the round literally hit him perfect through the shoulder and I followed up with a second shot that also went right where it was supposed to (Doug, you would be happy - I didn’t even come off the scope). Thanks again guys....I don’t want to sound like a “cheap ad” for SAAM just telling the facts here of what happened.....the value of this course is absolute.....really looking forward to getting back out there in November!! Best, Joe

Leopard Charge ! My SAAM training kept me cool under pressure while on safari recently. I was on my third try for leopard and using a pack of hounds to hunt Zimbabwe’s cattle killing leopards. We got in too close and the cat charged! Many thanks to Tim and Doug for my SAAM training that was incredibly valuable on this safari. It may have saved my life! Philip Glass

Madison turned 18 today. Thanks SAAM for making it one she will never forget. Only needed her “first shot”

Just got back from an exciting adventure in Russia. They do things a little different there, but the hunting is certainly not boring! The SAAM training helped me to stay calm and focused while charging after my bear. Loading the gun properly and safely is tough to do while running! Then being able to shoot a large bruin at a full bore run. I was able “To Fall To The Level Of My Training”. A very successful single shot kill. Thanks again and always for what you all do there at SAAM! Never in my wildest dreams would I be going on these adventures without the training you provide. Our Best to you all. See you in April, (again!) Don&Deb

Two tough shots but thanks to FTW they were on. It confirms to me why I continue to come to FTW—getting on the sticks in a very quick moment, making a great shot, reloading quickly and instantly getting another one in him. There was NO time to “think” about what I was doing—it just came naturally. THAT would never have happened had it not been for FTW. Thanks everyone! Molly

Hunting in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal was truly a once in a lifetime adventure. Shot a Blue Sheep on Day 6 (350 yds), a Tahr on Day 9 (325 yds) and a Muntjac on Day 7 (220 yds). They all dropped in their tracks with one shot. Skills learned and practiced at SAAM Precision were key to me confidently making these shots. Thanks SAAM!! Kemp

Thanks SAAM! Worked perfectly, 325 yards and a perfect shot! Patrick

SAAM I had a great time hunting the Sierra Nevada, Ronda and finally Beceite ibex. My Ronda and Beceite ibex shots were at “reasonable” distances (under 300 meters), resulting in one-shot kills with my 270 WSM. However, I only had shots well over 500 meters for the Sierra Nevada ibex. Thanks SAAM!!!! Scott

Tim and SAAM Team, You and your amazing team made this 400 yard clean kill shot possible with your school. No questions, I had no other shot and without your help this ram would have gotten away as there was no other approach to get a shot off. South Baja Desert Ram Hunt in the books! Jonathan

Where do Ronnie and I begin to say thank you for the most unbelievable first safari a person could wish for? I thought it might be difficult for me accompanying and not hunting myself, but I must say I received more joy by watching Ronnie than any hunt I’ve experienced. And FTW is to be credited with his success. He took 11 beautiful trophies. His buffalo wound up being an old, old one with 40.5 inches and 18 inch bosses, very special animal. So once again , my friend a BIG THANK YOU to the whole FTW/SAAM Team!! Hope you and your family and everyone at FTW are doing great. Molly and Ronnie

As a gun writer I’m blessed with lots of opportunities to hunt and shoot fantastic rifles on once in a lifetime hunts. This past week I hiked to within 650 yards of a 6x6 bull elk which was both cross canyon and very much up a 35 degree mountain in Idaho. I knew the dope. I knew my gun. More importantly I knew not to shoot because I also knew I wasn’t properly anchored or properly equipped to make a clean, ethical, one-shot kill on that magnificent animal. So I walked away. No regrets. FTW did much more than teach me how to shoot long range. It taught me how not to. Thank you for teaching me how much goes into such a long and challenging shot so that when my opportunity came I made a mature and ethical choice not to shoot. Jay Pinsky, Gun Writer

The only shot I had was at 400 yards off sticks, well supported and felt great with all the sticks" training I have received at SAAM over the years starting 2010. I never would have attempted this shot without it, thanks SAAM!!! JD

I just sent you a few highlights from a very successful Tanzania hunt. The second buffalo gave us a hard time, but all those drills at SAAM paid off and my PH and I handled a charge with no one injured, but lots of adrenaline. When it was over, we looked at each other and laughed. Thank you for preparing me for this contingency!!! Art

Had to write and say thanks. Just got back from Northern Nevada in the Ruby mountains on a mule deer hunt. Ended up being only one in the camp since everyone else tagged out earlier in the week. I get there and have 6 guides!! Long story short....a 480 yd shot rang true on the 5x4 Trump Buck thanks to you all. Trump was in Elko same day as we got him. No pressure felt even with....6 guides in spotters and video. Felt like I was filming a Nat Geo special!!! Thanks for that confidence! I didn't tell them that I had any instruction before the shot....by golly they all wanted to know about y'all afterward though! Again, I certainly appreciate the FTW schooling! 480 yds brought me more happiness than you can imagine on multiple levels. My gratitude is deeper than you will know for my time there. Best wishes...Doc

I think that every hunter who is going on a hunt where a long distance shot may be required should take a SAAM Course. The rifles and ammunition get a lot better and the hunter has to keep up with it. Manfred

I am just returning from an elk hunt and shot this nice bull at 430 yards. Thanks to my SAAM training I was very confident and managed to take him down with a single shot from my Blaser R8 .300 Win Mag.
Once again thanks for all your guidance!
Best regards, Eduardo

SAAM pays off again! 225 yards and quick follow up after 4 steps and dropped on the spot! 6 Miles from camp so you know that fun. Great stalk from first sighting a mile away. Hard work. Huge payday. Mike
