Boerne, TX:
For the third year in a row, Joshua Creek Ranch has been recognized as a Finalist for the Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year. Plus, for two years straight now, a Guide from this Texas Hill Country Hunting Lodge has been nominated for Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Guide of the Year. In 2017, Joshua Creek Ranch guide, Eric Harrison, won the honor and this year guide, Joseph Zinsmeyer (“JZ”) has been nominated.

Winners will be announced at the Orvis Guide Rendezvous, April 11-14 in Asheville, North Carolina. For more than three decades, the Orvis Guide Rendezvous has provided a forum for the best-of-the best in the wingshooting and fly-fishing industries to collaborate, learn and network with their peers. It’s also an opportunity for Orvis to recognize lodges, guides, outfitters and dog breeders who are literally the best in the world based on customer feedback among other established criteria.

Joshua Creek Ranch has been a pioneer in the wingshooting lodge business for more than 28 years. Since becoming a part of the prestigious Orvis Endorsed Program just four years ago, the award- winning Ranch has already been named a finalist for Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year three times – in 2016, 2017 and now 2018.

“It’s truly an honor to be nominated as one of the best in the business for the last three years in a row. Our staff works very hard to consistently deliver an exceptional customer experience -- from an amazing habitat, top-notch guides and incredible bird dogs to luxury lodging, meals and amenities, we always keep the Orvis Commitment to Partnership top-of-mind,” offered Kevin Welborn, Joshua Creek Ranch Director of Marketing, Sales & Guest Services. “We have received more than 650 five- star customer reviews on our Orvis profile so it’s our customers that are recognizing these efforts which makes it even more rewarding,” Welborn added.
