About Us


Big Nine’s reputation in the hunting world speaks for itself. We are recognized worldwide as a professional operation that goes the extra mile for its clients.

Big Nine Outfitters
In keeping with tradition Barry and his children Taner, ShayAnn, Amanda are all active in the operation of
Big 9 Outfitters.
I began my guiding career in 1972. I was fortunate to be trained by one of the best in the business, my Uncle, Gary Powell. Sadly, we lost my Uncle in 1983. I subsequently bought his territory from my Aunt in 1985.

Not only have I been a guide and an outfitter for many years, I have also been a client of other hunting operations in various parts of the world. With this unique background, my guarantee to you is that I will do my utmost to ensure you have a good hunt with us. If for any reason you are not satisfied with our services or crew, be sure to let me know immediately. I will try to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.

Thank you for booking your hunt with us.
We look forward to welcoming you to our territory.
Good Luck and Good Hunting!

Barry Tompkins
