“2018 will be my third hunt with Thorp Outdoors for Blacktail deer in Roseburg, Oregon. Taylor’s ground has plentiful supply of Blacktail bucks that are representative of the bucks found in the Roseburg area. Taylor is a fine young man and I have enjoyed my times with him driving the ranch on our successful spot and stalk hunts. Hunter choice should be the only reason not to harvest a Blacktail with the plentiful game available there.” –Greg Kassis – Sacramento, CA


“My hunt with Thorp Outdoors was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. Plenty of mature bucks there and I tagged out on a Stud Colombia Blacktail. Taylor is a first class guy and a great host . This is definitely a hunt I will be doing every year! Thank you Taylor Thorp.” –Allie Edwards – California

“We had such an amazing fishing experience on the Kenai River with Taylor! My fiancé has fished with Taylor several times and is an avid fisherman. For me this was my first time fishing. Taylor’s knowledge made it an awesome experience for both the beginner and the seasoned fisherman! His knowledge of the river, what techniques suited each of us and overall enthusiasm and patience made the trip that much better. We fished for 5 days with him and caught our limit every day! His dedication and hard work to help us catch our fish was evident and greatly appreciated. He was always early and prepared! I’m a photography enthusiast and he took the time to help me get some beautiful shots of wildlife as well!! We would highly recommend Thorp Outdoors! We come to the Kenai every August and plan on continuing to use Taylor!”
–Alis Willoughby – Niceville, Florida


“This was my 1st trip to Alaska. I am somewhat disabled from my back. Taylor was on it at all times. He knew and saw everything that was happening at all times on his boat. There were 4 in our group, he never missed a beat! He obviously likes what he does and is very experienced. And is true to his word! Hope to go out with him next season. FISH ON!” –G. Nohejl, San Francisco, CA


“We came to Alaska for our first family vacation in 7 years and wanted to enjoy a few fishing trips and Taylor delivered! With him as our guide, we limited out each day and had so much fun. His knowledge of the area and expertise on the river was very impressive. We have kids that are 11 and 14 and he worked wonderfully with them until they got the hang of what they needed to do to catch fish. We highly recommend Taylor as a guide…you won’t be disappointed!!” –James & Melanie Rogers, Redmond, OR

“My husband and I have had to opportunity to go fishing with Taylor/Kenai River Charters in Alaska & Oregon.

We highly recommend that you hook up with Taylor for a great day on the water, catching fish.” –Jack and Dee, Grants Pass, OR


“Taylor Thorp is young, aggressive, and a true woodsman. He knows the land, the game, and how to hunt both. Together with his desire to make every client’s adventure a dream come true, it’s hard not to want to come and hunt with him over and over again.” –Bob Robb, outdoor writer and Editor of Whitetail Journal magazine


“I hunted Columbia River Whitetail in Oregon with Taylor. I was extremely impressed with Taylor’s professionalism, his knowledge of the species that I was hunting and his is dedication to make sure that my hunt was perfect. He spent many days before I arrived making sure that the commendations were superb and more importantly he scouted the area and set the blinds in the right place. My hunt was successful with a SCI Gold Medal Columbia River Whitetail.” –Bruce Brown – Hunting with HECS
