I’m a retired US Army First Sergeant who has traveled the world as an outdoorsman and soldier. Born an “Army Brat” at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley of CA shooting, hunting and fishing. I truly love to share the International hunting experience with my clients and hope that I can help you realize your hunting dreams and complete your bucket list.
Due to his work and interests while living in Europe for 18 years, Mat joined the traditional European hunting scene. After attaining the German hunting, fishing and sport shooting licenses, Mat began teaching the hunting and fishing courses as the lead volunteer for the Bavarian Rod and Gun Club. His position and relationships with many influential European/American outdoorsman in the community and his European hunting experience ultimately led to him to be recruited by Wild Jaeger as their senior Pro Staff and ultimately to director of the WJ Hunting and Fishing Adventures.
Mat Cervantes has hunted the world, and so have his clients.
Currently Mat has set his sights on new hunting and fishing adventures such as harvesting Ibex in Spain and Turkey, as well as Himalayan Tahr in New Zealand. More importantly, Mat hopes to pass on his love of hunting and fishing to his children.
Although Mat continues to hunt and fish the world and has hunted from the Scottish Highlands to the edges of the Kalahari Desert and the Austro-Bavarian Alps to the Hawaiian Islands, he currently lives in Boise, Idaho with his wife and one day hopes to build a hunting cabin on their 38 acres in Alaska.
Mat Cervantes is a member of the Safari Club International, British Deer Society, Small Munsterlander club of North America, National Shooting Sports Foundation, National Infantry Association and lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and Veterans of Foreign Wars. He was also the Schofield Rod & Gun Club lead Hunting and Fishing volunteer and Euro hunting course instructor of the Bavarian Rod & Gun Club.
