Join consummate host, Bob White, on a superb duck hunting trip at the lavish Estancia Santa Rita. While at the Lodge, Bob plans to paint several canvases, and he’ll share each day’s work with the group at day’s end.

Bob is on the editorial team and regularly contributes artwork to TROUT, the membership publication for Trout Unlimited. He is also a contributor to Gray’s Sporting Journal, Sporting Classics, Shooting Sportsman, Big Sky Journal, and a myriad of other sporting publications.

Bob’s life and his adventures are the result of a misspent youth. Instead of doing homework,
he pursued his outdoor passions, and when not afield, his nose was in the sporting books
and magazines of the day. Consequently, he has wandered between Alaska and Patagonia,
guiding fly fishermen and bird hunters for over three decades. In addition to guiding in
southwest Alaska since 1984, he has guided and hosted sportsmen in Argentina, Chile,
Kamchatka, Cuba, the Bahamas, and many other destinations. In 1988 Bob was named Fly
Rod & Reel magazine’s Guide of the Year. When not guiding or hosting departures, Bob can
be found in Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota with his wife, Lisa, daughter Tommy, and their
awesome flat coat retriever, Frisbee.
