Detail Company Adventures - July 22, 2016
By: Paul Anderson - V.P.
Jeri Booth and the DCA team have been working hard all summer, and are proud to take our new website live this week. It's been a challenge that we have thoroughly enjoyed. It's not easy to put Jeri's 30 years of hunting industry knowledge and connections into one website.....believe me it's not easy....the amount of knowledge kept in Jeri's head astounds me daily. She's a walking international hunting and fishing encyclopedia! The connections she's developed over the years have become treasured friends, her clients are fiercely loyal...I've known Jeri for over 10 years now and can without a doubt say she knows as much about international hunting and fishing as anyone. Period. After all she's one of the pioneers of the industry..and I for one intend to see she gets her due.
Think about it....Jeri Booth started DCA in 1980 (the year I was born), in a time when hunting was a male dominated industry. There were no cover photos of women on Outdoor Life, the word Huntress wasn't thrown around on every other hash tag...ladies if you at all hunt, if you are in this industry, you owe Jeri Booth a heart felt thank you....she among a few others helped pave the way. In a time when women who enjoyed the outdoors were not the norm...she is an O.G. Huntress. As her friend and employee, I will be forever grateful for the opportunities she has given me; from traveling the world hunting and fishing to introducing me to some of the industries biggest names. She's changed my life, just as she's changed the face of international hunting and fishing in many ways; she's a pioneer and would kill for her clients. A roll model for any sales person, Jeri keeps her customers best interest at heart at all times, they say business isn't personal.... be careful saying that to Jeri, she takes the defeats and victories very personally. Which I believe all great sales people do, we represent lodges and clients from around the world...but we are in the business of building lasting relationships, and we take those relationships very personally.
DCA has brought on a new consultant who feels the same way, Larry Scheuerman, a fly fishing aficionado and lover of anything hunted in the mountains. Larry's talents and experiences run deep, hailing out of Canada, Larry is our number one guy for all things in the North Country. As well as our in house fly fishing guru. If you're looking for a fishing trip of a life time or a big bull moose, Larry's your guy!
This summer has brought on many many changes here at DCA. The new website being the one we are most proud of, along with developing new destinations and programs. My first ever blog, new employees, new everything in alot of ways... one thing that has not nor will not change is our commitment to the customer and finding the best opportunities available!

RED STAG AND DOVE COMBO!

Also, we've negotiated a great deal at both Lodges...If you tried booking this trip with anyone else or to these same lodges on your own it would be an $11,000.00 + trip! We're here for you and dedicated to getting you our customer the best deal possible!
New Mendoza Province Tours!
Another program we're very proud of is our new relationship with our Mendoza tour operator, Tasting Mendoza, and Dolores Montero! Dolores does an unbelievable job, and is has the attention to DETAIL that we expect from all our partners. Whether you'd like vineyard tours at any of the famous wineries, mountain adventures, horse back across the Andes, fishing, touring a working cattle ranch, through our wonderful new partnership we have and amazing assortment to offer. Not to mention the best hotels in Mendoza! Try a couple nights in Mendoza on the front or back end of your next trip. Personally my favorite part of a stop in Mendoza is the night life, and promenade. Around 8-10 pm every evening people walk the main streets, drinking, talking, enjoying several Tapas locations, grabbing dinner, people watching and ambiance. It's truly a great way to finish off your Argentine vacation.
We can put something together based on extra large groups or for the couple that wants to get away! Malbec aplenty!
