I‘m Jim Breck Bean, owner and founder of High West Outfitters. I was born and raised on a ranch in the Trans-Pecos region of far West Texas. I now make my home on the family farm just east of Fort Hancock, Texas where my family and I farm, ranch, and train performance horses. Hunting, Ranching, and Rodeoing is a natural way of life to me, as I’ve been involved in the three since I was a toddler. I hunt over 100 days out of the year, guiding and scouting for 150+ booked clients each season. HWO is an all low fence operation; we hunt Mule Deer, Aoudad, Gemsbok Oryx, a few other exotics, and the coveted Desert Bighorn Sheep. When I‘m not in the mountains chasing game, I’m either working on our family ranch or chasing the rodeo trail!
I take great pride in my hunting ethics, and live for the success of myself and my clients. I have hunted nearly every mountain range in West Texas, and have harvested some giant animals in the past. Assisting hunters reach their hunting dreams has been a passion of mine since I was just a young kid, I started guiding hunters on the family ranch when I was just a very young boy. I took part in my first Desert Sheep hunt at just 11 years old! I love the great outdoors, and have a high respect for the conservancy of our game.
