Cary Jellison is a complete outdoorsman, having prowled the mountains and waters of Nevada and California since he was a child. Cary is committed to the conservation and ethical use of the area's natural resources. After years of fly fishing, hunting, camping, rafting, and hiking, Cary started his own guide service, G & J Outdoors, in 1995. With a desire to introduce young people to the outdoors and a willingness to tailor trips to meet a client's individual needs, Cary has quickly built a reputation as a reliable and knowledgeable guide and outfitter.
For the hunter, Cary offers expert guiding for all three species of elk, mule deer, desert (Nelson) bighorn sheep, California bighorn sheep, antelope, mountain lion, wild chukar, quail, sage grouse and turkey hunting in both California and Nevada. A member of Safari Club International, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the National Rifle Association, the Mule Deer Foundation, Nevada Bighorns Unlimited, the Nevada Outfitters and Guides Association, as well as a lifetime member of Grand Slam Club Ovis and The Wild Sheep Foundation, Cary looks to make hunts not only successful, but also enjoyable and educational. Due to his well-honed skills and quality hunting properties, clients who hunt with Cary commonly book hunts year after year, hence the slogan, "come as a client - stay as a friend."
For the fly fisherman, Cary offers clients an intimate knowledge of the American and Yuba rivers in Northern California, having fished them for striped bass and trout for over 30 years. He also offers multi day trips for large trout on a private reservoir in central Nevada. With a staunch commitment to the conservation of America's cold water fisheries, the Trout Unlimited member and Hyde drift boat pro-staff member offers anglers a chance to sample some of California and Nevada's finest fly fishing action.
We have over 20 years experience guiding elk hunters in California and Nevada. Our clients have taken all 3 species of elk that will qualify for the Boone and Crockett record book and we may be the only outfitter that has ever done that. Whether it's calling bulls in the rut with archery gear or hunting elk in the late season with rifles, our guides have the experience to make your hunt a success.
Cary is no stranger to hunting and fishing success on either side of the Nevada/California state line. Hunters and anglers who book a trip with G & J Outdoors will not be disappointed.
