Guides

Tim Humphrey

Owner and head guide at Aspen Outfitters, Tim started guiding in 1996 for Ruffed Grouse and then expanded to include Black Bear. He has also taken his desire of fishing Burbot to an extreme level. Fishing nearly every night from in January thru ice out in April. He has traveled the much of the Midwest chasing whitetails, turkeys and waterfowl. 


He aims to provide you with a memorable experience regardless of the species. 

Wil Neururer

Wil is a very spirited young man. Joining Aspen Outfitters in 2012, Wil has been like a sponge, learning every step of the way. He has a passion for fishing that keeps him busy year round. 


He has lived his entire life in the area, and can definitely put you on some great fish thru the ice, or on the open water. 

Logan Humphrey

Though Logan may be only 17 years old, his knowledge of the outdoors and ability to find game is extraordinary. He has been helping his father Tim since he was 4 years old and really become an accomplished outdoors-man. Taking many nice whitetail and in 2014 his first bear. 


Logan also has the pout fishing down as well, and often challenges Tim if they are on the ice together.

Nathan Westlund

We are looking forward to having Nate around this upcoming season. He tagged along last year and helped with baiting and stand setups. He will help Logan as they maintain part of the bear hunting area. He also has that extra muscle we might need to get your trophy out of the timber.

Tim and Wil kept us on fish for the whole trip and provided the right knowledge and tactics when it comes to fishing the elusive pout. They did an incredible job and made some damn good pout tacos to keep us going on a cold windy evening."

  • "Aspen Outfitters is top notch! This was the second time I've been on a bear hunt. The first time was in Canada and we didn't get the the respect nor the (one on one) that I got with Tim and Wil. They are great people and go out of their way to get you a bear. The fish dinner was awesome that they cooked for us. This was a great trip with great friends old and new. Everyone I talked to at the bear camp and Big Fish lodge were so nice and made this experience even better. If I could hunt at Aspen Outfitters every year this would be the place to be."
