Luke has the ability to capture the hunt perfectly all while being a great person to share camp with. While I was focused on the hunt Luke worked hard to capture moments so that I have them documented forever. I highly recommend having Luke join you on your hunt to help you relive the beautiful experience though wonderful photos!

I was fortunate enough to draw the Washington Wild Sheep Foundation Rocky Mountain Bighorn sheep tag for 2018.  After drawing the tag, I was almost immediately contacted by several individuals who wanted to help.  After talking with wildlife biologist, game wardens and other outfitters one name kept coming up – Luke Carrick.  I was a little hesitant to work with anyone as I have pretty… Read more “Derek Cooper”

When I decided to book my Washington Backcountry Mule Deer hunt, I was extremely concerned with what type of guide we would be spending 10 days within the backcountry. After doing some research and asking for some advice from some of my friends in the Pacific Northwest. I came across Luke Carrick and Guiderite Adventures. Luke met all of my hopes in a backcountry guide.… Read more “Westin Yancey”

I have something to say about Guiderite Adventures, if you’re lucky enough to draw a quality hunt or even heading out during the general season I recommend hooking up with Luke.

Steve Miller

I have been on two hunting adventures with Luke- the first one was a high country backpack archery elk hunt and the second was a rifle deer hunt, day hiking from a base camp into very rugged country. Luke’s level of planning and preparation contributed to my success and enjoyment on both hunts; a trophy 6×6 bull and a respectable 4×4 buck. His backcountry skills,… Read more “Steve Miller”

Ken Allen

I first met Luke through work several years ago and when I would run in to him a few times a year we would exchange recent hunting stories and pictures. In 2008 I drew a really good archery elk tag in a tough backcountry unit that I knew nothing about. I called Luke to ask if he would help me and without hesitation he said… Read more “Ken Allen”

Wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for an amazing spring bear hunt. I never imagined I would see 11 bears on a 4 day backpack trip. I have nobody to blame besides myself for not harvesting the trophy bear of my lifetime on that hunt. I’m very thankful that you reached out to help me when you learned I had a tag.… Read more “James Kyriss”

Bear Hunt

Luke Carrick is a hunting guide unlike any other. In fifteen years of outdoor writing over four continents, I have yet to meet a hunter and outdoorsman more committed to his craft, the land, and the game. Luke puts the time in throughout the year becoming familiar with the herd patterns, individual animal habits and how both change under a variety of environmental conditions. He’s… Read more “Len Waldron”

I’ve know Luke for over 20 years and have had the privilege to hunt with him on multiple occasions. The first time was during my first opportunity to harvest an elk where Luke called in a 1×2 spike bull that I arrowed at 10 yards. It was a great experience for my first successful elk hunt. Most recently I hunted with Luke on a spring… Read more “J.D. Shelton”
