"I've been hunting with Nick almost every year for 10 years. He consistently guides a great hunt every year with this year being the best yet! 60 bird day
is tough to top but that's what I said 8 years ago about a 55 bird hunt with him. I've stayed in both lodges and definitely recommend doing so. It
really makes for a way better experience. They are doing it right and always bust their ass for their clients. Looking forward to next years trip!"
"Daniel, just wanted to thank you again for such a great trip. From our first year hunting with you, to this year (our 2nd) Run N Gun has shown our group
of hunters an irreplaceable experience in south Texas. This year we added a Crane hunt and a pig hunt. John, our guide for the Sandhill Crane hunt
was so extensively knowledgeable about the tactics and strategies for hunting cranes i cannot wait to spend another hunt with him, we had flocks decoying
like you cannot imagine as well as several fly-by candidates which all provided for an unforgettable hunt. Our other new guide this year was Poth,
the night vision hog hunt guide. Poth, even as a young guide, showed the kind of professional approach and safety diligence that you would expect of
a 20+year seasoned guide to be known for. Your guides once again delivered the finest of the good ol boys of Texas guide services anyone could ask
for. I've been to south Texas in December with your guides 2 years in a row, and cannot wait to add year and years of experiences with y'all in south
Texas. Thank you again for such a great trip.

"Well had a great time fishing matagorda bay This morning with my love Emily Aaron-Vinzant. Capt Caleb puts us on some great fish he was able to get a 27"
and I was fortunate enough to catch my three personal best trout a 24",26",and 28"(all four of the big fish where released). Along with those we had
a full box of solid fish with some bonus fat sand trout and left them biting at 12:30 and headed into harbor. Special thanks goes out
to Daniel Kubecka at run n gun adventures for getting this trip set up and finding someone to spilt with us.
"Whether taking clients or your son on his first duck hunt, a person could not ask for a better experience. I have had a chance to hunt a lot of places
over the years, RNG stands out!!!!
"I took a group of buddies duck hunting with Run-N-Gun and it was unbelievable. My group, which included some guys who had never even been hunting before, had a great time. Our guides did whatever it took to put us on the ducks, and we shot plenty of them. I can’t wait to do it again next year.
"If you want an exciting outdoor experience in regarding to slamming red fish and speckled trout, smoking ducks & geese, or even night vision hog hunting,
I highly recommend Run n Gun Adventures. I have experienced fishing, waterfowl and hog hunting with the most personable and reliable outfitters in
Texas. On top of the spectacular outdoor adventures, the beautiful lodge is extremely accommodating and relaxing. You can enjoy hot meals in the kitchen
while watching the football game or fishing at the pier below…
Run n Gun Adventures is also more than just a first class outfitter, they are some of the most giving people I know on earth. They support charity organizations,
such as Sky High for St. Jude who supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the RMH of Memphis every year! Run N Gun is always my personal
top choice in outfitters.
"Hats off to Run-N-Gun for hosting the CEC/DPEC Fishing Showdown!!! 3 days of solid fishing for 40 guys and 10 boats. If you are looking for an outfitter
to host your corporate event I highly recommend Run-N-Gun!!!!!!!

"Everyone had a blast, thank you for going above and beyond to make it such a great trip!
"Just wanted to say thanks again for the great trip Friday. We all had a blast, and it was a great way to kick off the bachelor party weekend. Conditions
were tough in the morning, but Nick was where we needed to be when they starting biting. It was definately a trip to remember, and I hope we get to
do it again in the near future.
"Just wanted to drop a note to say how much we appreciated the hunt on May 25; all who participated said it was the best bachelor party they had attended. We
plan to hunt with Run N Gun in the future. Our guide, Gene, was a great host and most accommodating; he created an enjoyable hunt.
"Three of my brothers and I went fishing with Daniel in the heat of the summer on July 21. We were given the choice of using artificial or natural bait.
We tried both and caught fish on each. The bait didn't make a difference. On our way out we decided to first put some numbers in the box and then concentrated
on the wall hangers. The wind was blowing out of the southeast at around 10 to 12 mph with a slight chop. The water was slightly off color but fishable.
Our first two wades ended around 9 am and produced a couple dozen solid trout to 24" and three mid-twenty inch reds. From there we moved to a big trout
hot spot where we strung more specs with two near 26". We ended the day around 3 pm, tired but very satisfied, with 34 trout and 3 reds which amounted
to right at five gallons of fillets.
I've fished my entire life and still learned some tricks from Daniel. He's knows the Matagorda Bays very well and was eager to share his fishing experiences
with us. Don't let his young age fool you, he knows how and where to fish. He's a very well mannered young man and a pleasure to fish with.
Daniel, my brothers and I want to thank you for a fantastic day of catching and for all the helpful tips. We're looking forward to doing it again.
Aaron, Darrell, Sid and Bob Faas
"I wanted to send you a quick thank you for an amazing trip to Texas, although the goose hunting was slow with nick yesterday it was an amazing time. As
for Caleb, he was the most professional and outstanding young man to hunt with that I've ever experienced. Overly generous in his accommodations for
us when we had a broken down truck for the entirety of the trip.
I've been a diver hunter here in California for 20 years and never had so much fun on a duck hunting trip ever.
Hope y'all have a great holiday and I cannot wait to get back to south Texas again next year.
Andrew F. Dowdle
"If your wanting to get on some birds or fish, give these guys a shout. It's a no BS trip, if they tell you it's going on, its going on, take the time,
make the trip, and go, never been told wrong. Well worth it.
Run-N-Gun, Thanks for some of the best wing shooting that I've experienced between Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas, in the past few years. Looking foward
to next year and a few trips this summer.
Forest- Stay away from those tree rats.
"Daniel, we just want to thank you again for arranging us a dove hunt on such short notice this past Saturday. The hunt was a lot better than expected and
we could not have been any happier with the results. Jacob did an awesome job and worked his ass off for us locating all the birds that were shot and
landed in the brush or on the other side of the canal. A few of us are thinking about coming back down for another hunt Saturday afternoon if you have
We were really impressed and satisfied with your company and Jacob. We want to book a trip with you for opening weekend next year if possible.
In a nutshell, thank you and let me know if you or Jacob can accommodate 2 or 3 of us next Saturday afternoon.
"I have known Nick for 7 years and have seen his dogs work on duck hunts and was always impressed with their ability. Well, we purchased a lab last year as a therapy dog for my son with autism from a breeder who promised us a lot, including some special therapy dog training that was very specific to our needs . That trainer that started her got into some trouble personally and we had to pull her from the training as the kennel basically closed on us. It was a bad deal. At this time our pup Windy was extremely obedient, very well mannered, but had been bred to be very passive and sensitive. Well, my son never really took to her so I reached out to Nick about just training her to hunt. She’s now 19 months old and had only had obedience training. Nick said give him a couple of months and he’d have her retrieving anything that flew. We dropped her off April 8th of this year. Nick would call weekly and express his concerns saying maybe it wasn’t going to click for her. She wouldn’t swim, was real sensitive to any pressure put on her, and was really afraid of heeling at all. Something told him that the last trainer probably developed some fear and some really bad habits with his techniques. After the second week he was really concerned about these factors and said he would have to try some alternate techniques with her since she didn’t handle the pressure well at all and he had to get her swimming obviously. I was reserved to the fact that she probably just wasn’t going to be a hunter. Nick was adamant that he wasn’t ready to give up on her though, just yet. The 3rd week he called and said she’s swimming now! He told me he loaded up a bunch of dogs in the truck with Windy and took them to a training pond just to play. Nick said the other dogs started playing in the water – splashing and chasing each other and swimming. After a few minutes of watching from the bank , Windy couldn’t take it anymore. She joined the pack in the water and the rest is history. Then he started taking Windy out with other dogs while training. She was just watching the other dogs work with Nick for a week or so. In this timeframe, he didn’t work her at all. She was just an innocent bystander watching and learning. After that week, he took her back out and low and behold it just “clicked”. She wanted to hunt. She wanted to retrieve. She just didn’t have any confidence in herself and just didn’t know how much fun it was. I visited Windy this past week and we did some live bird training with quail. She left Dallas a sweet very insecure girl in April and 8 weeks later is now a HUNTING MACHINE. She was great. She retrieves flawlessly, even chasing down a wounded bird through some thick brush and coming out victorious. She can even get doubles. Most importantly, she is 100% more confident as a dog. She is so happy. I am really angered when I think what the last trainer must have put her through to make her so closed and insecure. I have no doubts that she will now be not only a better hunter obviously, but just a better family dog with a better quality of life. Her confidence is shining so bright now that she is just a happier dog. For that, I can’t stress how thankful I am to Nick. He’s made our sweet Windy a well rounded family dog who happens to be a bad ass hunting dog as well. Windy is coming home on the 23rd as Nick and his wife Regina have taken her in their home as of this past weekend to re-enforce potty training and get her used to living in a home again. We are anxiously awaiting her return. Thanks again to Nick Stillwell for helping our sweet Windy out!
"I’ve been fishing with Nick for the last 7 years with clients, family, and friends. I’ve been bringing clients/friends down for seven years from Dallas to Matagorda to wade fish with Nick and Daniel. This year was our 1st year to get to fish with Jacob as well, since I always run 2 boats at a time. These Run-N-Gun boys are just great guys, period. They always make sure my clients/friends have a good time and always get them on fish. The key component on my guys having a memorable experience in my opinion is for them to catch fish and get to take filets home. Well, the advantage of using Run-N-Gun is they know where the fish are because they’re fishing every day. They also take the time to educate the guys on how to be successful in the water too. I’ve brought down seasoned fishermen, total salt water virgins, and everything in-between. Regardless of the fisherman, they give them the instruction needed to be successful. However, as the 1st morning progresses, they continue to watch them and give pointers when needed. I can say with absolute 100% certainty that when we leave, the guys I’ve brought always tell me how great the guides were. In the end, they always just say those are just “great guys”, period. I can’t stress how thankful I am to Daniel, Nick, and Jacob for making all my trips with clients/friends just relaxing, productive, and overall a great time. It goes without saying that I will forever be a loyal friend/customer of Run-N-Gun Adventures. I look forward to many more trips and countless days in the muddy Matagorda waters.
"Carla, Sandra, Shelia and I just want to say THANK YOU so much for arranging our last minute trip out with Michael this past Saturday. We had a great time
and were able to get 8 trout in the box!!!
Michael was totally awesome as always. He worked both the front and back of the boat keeping bait on our hooks and our lines in the water. In addition,
your new boat “Primetime” is unbelievable.
Michael kept us out for 6 nice hours of fishing and again we want to say THANKS. We will continue to call you when we are down for a fishing trip.
Run and Gun is awesome!!! Michael rocks!!!
"Daniel - our trip was fantastic, as you can see from the pictures. Jacob treated us well, and was very helpful. We definitely would like to schedule additional
trips with you or him in the next few months.
David J. McBride
"Thanks for the pictures. We had a great time. My wife ended up with her first trout so that was a plus and we managed to get my mom and wife in the water to wade fish so it all worked out perfectly. Just wished we hadn’t ran out of bait but that’s how it goes! Thanks again and we will have to plan another trip asap!
Dustin T. Hunt
"On June 30th I had the pleasure to go out with Captain Daniel Kubecka. He showed up at the dock with a great attitude and told our party that he had been
on some good fish. Our expectations were pretty high when he said that. And he never ceased to meet or exceed our expectations. I personally cought
my record of trout over 25" with one being 28 and another 27, and everyone else in the group got at least one over 25". Everything about the trip with
Daniel was well planned and prepaired. He knew where the fish were, how big they were, and when we wanted to catch and release some big ones, he succeeded
again. I will be going out with Captain Kubecka in the very near future, and I suggest if someone wants a guide that you can ask questions too and
get answers with a smile, then book a trip with Run-N-Gun Adventures. He was a class act from the time we got on the boat till the time that we left
the harbour in the afternoon.
"I always have the best time fishing with Daniel Kubecka. He know's where the fish are and how to consistently catch them, no matter what the circumstances
are. Whenever my buddies and I want to spend a weekend fishing on the coast, I always call Daniel.
Garret "Bubba" Scherer
, American Rodsmiths
"Late May 2007, went fishing with Daniel Kubecka wading with croakers. I am pushing 60 years old. This was bar none my best fishing trip ever. By 8:30 A.M.
we had limited out, with me personally catching 2 trout over 27 inches long. None under 20 inches. We caught 8-10 more and released them just for fun.
They were jumping, breaking lines, spinning me around. I had a ball!! It was one of those 'Kodak' memories that is planted in my mind forever! I am
sure Daniel can not reproduce this every time but it was sure fun!! He is a very, very great young man and I highly recommend him as a guide.
"Daniel, just wanted to thank you and your dad for being so patient as we planned our fishing trip/ bachelor party with you. We had an outstanding trip
and have the pictures to prove it. Besides the 5 full limits of trout to 25 inches, the highlight of the trip was the 5 we caught that were between
25 – 28 inches.
"Run-N-Gun Adventures is the difference between fishing and catching!!!! You don't just fish with Run-N-Gun you CATCH!!!!!!!!!!!
"Just wanted to say thanks again for the great time I had with my son, my brother, and my future nephew. Kaden couldn't stop talking about it all the way
home. Thanks for giving me a memory I will never forget with my son. Liked the pictures posted on your web site. Can't wait to give it another go in
"I was lucky enough to be the high bidder of a Guided Fishing Trip at theCollege Station CCA Banquet last spring given by Run-Gun Adventures ( DanielKubecka). I took my son and a friend with his son, With Daniel being asyoung as he is the boys felt comfortable right away and we all hit it off.As for the fishing the same can be said, our first stop we waded out about a100 yards from the boat and it was on. After it slowed down Daniel suggestedthat we go look for some big girls, That's exactly what happened to me firsta 27" trout and the next cast a 26" trout. Needless to say my friend and hisson are hooked on bay fishing, Thanks to Daniel for one great fishing trip.If you looking for a guide to put you on some fish then book him.
"All I can say is these guys live up to their reputation. We scheduled them for a bachelor party bay fishing trip and the group was a mix of complete rookies to average anglers. It just goes to show you don’t have to be an expert for Run-N-Gun to put you on fish. Captain Nick was very informative and adapted to each guy’s skill level to make the trip an absolute blast. Too many times you run across guides that only have one gear and can’t adjust to a group that not only wants to fill boxes but also have a great time regardless of what we bring home. Nick showed a ton of patience in teaching each guy what was necessary to bring in fish while at the same time he knew when we should take breaks and enjoy the overall experience. The result was a lot of heavy trout action for everyone and a perfect set up for a bachelor party trip. This definitely will not be the last time we book a trip with Run-N-Gun because they don’t just advertise “ Our number one priority is customer satisfaction”, they live it. Thanks
again to Daniel and Nick for the perfect trip.
"Rodney and I just wanted to let you know what a great fishing trip that we had this past August. With 4 of us fishing it isn't very often that you can
limit out on Trout and 1 nice Red in less than a half day of fishing. It started out a little slow but it wasn't long before you were able to put us
on some very solid action. They were all solid fish, running from 17" - 24". They all fried/ate up very well that evening with plenty left over for
another couple of meals. You were very polite, professional and an extremely nice person to be around and fish with. You were never hesitant to help
and teach us the proper technique for catching fish using live croaker. We wish you the best of luck in finishing your college degree (hurry up so
we can fish more often). Can't wait to do it again and we all definitely recommend you as the Captain of choice to use.
Paul Blinka & Rodney Stroud
"Fished with Daniel in August under extremely hot weather conditions and high tides. Even with these tough conditions, Daniel was still able to find some
solid trout for us. He worked hard for us and we grinded until the last bait was gone. Very knowledgable guide that is willing to sit back and teach
you the proper techniques. Great trip, learning experience, and will definately book another trip for next year. "
"Excellent Experience! On a less than optimal condition day I went on a boat with Daniel while friends went on a boat with locals. We were catching monster
trout on a regular basis and they weren't. Daniel showed us how to"feel" and land fish like professionals. We were constantly on the move from one
spot to antoher and always in trout and redfish. His gear was in outstanding condition and his boat was second to none. I will definitely fish again
with Run-And-Gun Adventures.
"Daniel, I wanted to send a note of thanks to you and your guide Nathan for the fabulous dove hunt. It was truly one of the best I've ever been a part of. You went "above and beyond" to make sure we had plenty of shooting. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
"Thank you for the great dove hunt this past weekend. Jacob and Nathan took great care of our group, both of my clients mentioned is was the best dove hunting they have ever experienced in Texas. I look forward to seeing more of the outdoors through Run-N- Gun!
Kyle R. Kelley
"Thanks again for the invite this weekend. I had a blast, and that was by far the best duck hunt I have been on.
Michael C. Dyke
"Forrest, It’s you that deserves the thank you- I appreciated the invitation and had a great time on my first duck hunt. And certainly didn’t go home empty
"We had an outstanding hunt with Nick Stillwell. We all shot our limits and learned a lot from Nick. Nick was very patient with us, as we had several very
inexperienced waterfowl hunters with our group. We are planning another trip for this December. We all want to get in on a snow goose hunt. I’ll get
with you when we can work out a date.
Thanks again for an excellent adventure!
"We just wanted to thank James and you again for an amazing first hunt. My father and I had such an amazing time. We were very happy with the way that James
and you followed through and kept in complete contact with us leading up to the hunt to make sure that we had everything we needed and knew where we
were going. We were very impressed with the way that you have kept in contact with us after the hunt to make sure everything went well, and that everything
is going OK with the meat processing. You guys really do a great job of following through and making sure the people you take out feel very welcomed
and are taken good care of . James was an amazing guide, he took us around and showed us all the land, different stands, explained everything to us
and made sure we got an amazing hog! We saw a lot of big hogs on the way to the stand and even on the way back. We even got to see a nice deer. We
got to stay around and watch him prepare the meat for processing and he explained everything he was doing to us, it was an amazing first experience.
He was a great guide and great company we enjoyed spending the late afternoon and evening with him. We can't wait to setup another hunt with you guys
for next year!
"We had a wonderful time with run-n-gun adventures! Daniel did everything in his power to make sure we had a great time and we stayed busy! I got to shot
a great boar which I've had a lot of fun bragging about. We are really looking foward to going with the guys at run-n-gun again this time with friends!
I cant wait to go back!
Jennifer & Martin Bartz
"Thank you for the awesome hunting trip you provided for my son, my brother, and me. I cannot give you enough praise or compliments on the trip you gave
us on December 23, 2009-December 24, 2009. Chase, my 8 year old son, has hunted only once before our Run N Gun Adventures “hog hunt”. Chase’s prior
hunting experience, which was very limited, unfortunately resulted in a lot of watching and no harvesting. We discussed this limited and non-productive
hunting experience in great detail, as well as my primary goal to provide Chase with a fun filled trip and to get him his first harvest so as to keep
his interest in hunting. Not only did you deliver all we could have wanted, but you delivered way more than we could have ever requested!
The day started out a bit slow for Chase without any action occurring outside of our blind. As you know, animals are never truly predictable, and no
matter how hot a spot is one day, it can be extremely cold the next. This was a lesson that was very hard for Chase to learn, but the constant
reassurance and information you provided Chase helped him learn this valuable hunting lesson, and he dealt with it like a trooper.
On the other hand, the afternoon turned out to be very productive for my brother, as he saw a couple of good bucks, a bunch of does and some really
good hogs (the one he took bottomed out a 300 lb. scale-what a hog!).
Chase’s frustration and disappointment was noticed after his uneventful blind sitting. Daniel suggested we try spotlighting to give Chase an opportunity
at his first harvest. Daniel’s dad was kind enough to take Chase spotlighting in the early evening, but it was too early for hog movement and nothing
was sighted. It was suggested we take some time off to get some dinner in town, while some damage control was handled on the home front. We returned
after getting some food and sitting down for a while, and Chase was off spotlighting again. Some hogs were spotted under a tree and it was game-on
for Chase. When the opportunity presented itself, Chase jumped out of the Kubota, braced himself as best as he could against the Kubota, and placed
a great shot downrange and under the spotlight. Not a bad “standing” shot for a young hunter, as he hit his target. I was so proud of Chase for
being patient, understanding, and placing a shot like this on his first actual animal harvest. After all was said and done, Chase could not contain
the happiness and excitement on his first harvest, evident by a never ending smile and the fact that he called his Papa at 12:30 AM to let him
know what he did.
Not only did Chase have an amazing trip and first hog harvest, but Daniel and the rest of the Kubecka family were very patient with Chase and
graciously answered his never-ending questions. If you know 8 year olds, they can ask question after question after question, and trust me, Chase
asked a lot of questions. Run N Gun Adventures and the Kubecka family also allowed Chase to participate at times with the background activities
involved in the hunt, which he thoroughly enjoyed as well.
All in all we had an amazing trip, and Run N Gun Adventures provided Chase with what he calls his best Christmas gift ever. Four days have passed
since our hunting trip, and Chase is still talking about is his hunting trip. Chase has told every family member and friend of his trip several
times already, and I am sure they will continue to hear about it for some time now.
Run N Gun Adventures and the Kubeckas definitely made us all feel like family. Everyone associated with Run N Gun Adventures is not only extremely
professional, but is friendly and courteous. I could not have asked for more.
As Run N Gun Adventures says on their website, "Our customers are always going to be number 1, and that is what we think is going to set us apart
from the rest. From hunting to fishing and anything in between, we offer it all. So whether you are looking for that relaxing weekend away from
work or that story of a lifetime with family and friends, then Run-n-Gun Adventures is for you!"
The Run-n-Gun Adventures Guides
Run N Gun Adventures came through as indicated and provided service well above and beyond my expectations!!!!!!!!! Run N Gun Adventures is an honest,
family affair that provides top-notch service of unquestionable character which really does set them apart from the rest. Run N Gun Adventures
provided Chase a trip of a lifetime, full of great memories; and provided me the opportunity to provide and experience this great trip with my
son, which is something I will never forget. After our experience this is truly the only hunting guide we will use and recommend from this point
Thanks Run N Gun Adventures and we cannot wait until we meet and hunt together again!
"I have been on a lot of individual and guided hunts. The guides were professional and were committed to making it a great hunt. The rig was professional. You don't always need to shoot a limit to have a great time!"
"We had an awesome time. No worries about the geese, I know you can't control that; and if you could it wouldn't be as much fun. I really appreciate you
and Nick doing everything y'all could to help us have a good time. All my guys were very pleased with the way everything worked out. We really enjoyed
ourselves. As a matter a fact, we want to make it an annual trip. Give us something to look forward to each year. When is a good time to start booking
for next year?
Nick and Caleb (I hope I spelled that right) took awesome care of us. Those guys worked really hard to make sure that we had a good time and had a
chance at some birds.
But we definitely want to come back, and we definitely want Nick to be our guide, if he is willing to put up with us. Thanks man!
"We met these guys in your pictures at Poco Playa in town. I think they over heard us discussing our crappy hunting experience with Coastal Wings Outfitters.
They recommended that we give you guys a call as they have been hunting with you for 8 years. We made the call at 11:55 at night and you had Caleb
meet us for a fantastic duck hunt experience the next morning. Thank you Daniel and Caleb for turning our hunting weekend around. And thanks to these
great guys we met at Poco!
