Charles Gonzales

As a native New Mexican, Charles was born and raised with a passion for hunting and a value for the meat the local animals can provide. He's been fortunate to experience his own success on hunts all around the state of New Mexico and has guided friends and clients to success on their own hunts. He's been a licensed hunting guide in New Mexico for three years with elk and mule deer being his primary focus. When he's not hunting or guiding, Charles works as a firefighter/EMT for the City of Santa Fe.
