Meet Some of Our Staff

Tyler Fisher

I grew up south of Houston, spending the majority of my time outdoors hunting and fishing with my family. I knew from a young age I wanted to work outdoors. I graduated from West Texas A & M with a Bachelors Degree in Wildlife Biology. After school I had several internships around the San Antonio area working on ranches and this helped solidify my interest to pursue a career in wildlife management and supervision. My goal is to be a world class hunting guide. I especially enjoy our guests here at Venatura Excursions and making sure they have the best experience I can offer.

JR Draker

I grew up in the Hill Country hunting and fishing throughout my childhood. Went to Texas A&M University Kingsville where I received my Bachelor degree in Range and Wildlife Science. Started working for Joe on his ranch down in Hebbronville in 2013 as a guide/host. I enjoy the hunting industry because the camaraderie between hunters and guides. I enjoy meeting new hunters as well as seeing previous hunters year after year and finding them their trophy of a lifetime.

Nestor Cancio

I was born in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, where I studied and obtained a degree in gastronomy from the Technological University of Hermosillo (UTH) to become a professional chef. My passion for culinary arts and the love of the outdoors motivated me to find a career in which I could merge these two, playing with flavors, smells and colors, creating new dishes and putting my unique style into them. My goal is to create an unforgettable experience when guests try one my culinary creations.

Casey Sanford

Born and raised just outside of Austin, Texas, I’ve had a lifelong passion for the outdoors. My love of nature led me to pursue an Environmental Science degree. With over seven years as a professional archery tech and nine years as a hunting guide my adventures have spanned from the West Texas border to the South Texas brush country and everything in between.
