A Little About Us

Ambush Outdoor Adventures is an experienced, professional and authentic guide company that is capable in all situations and most importantly will make whatever adventure you are on an experience you will remember for a lifetime.

Why are we in the outdoor industry?

Horses, hounds and hunting greatly influenced Kim’s life growing up on a southern Vancouver Island farm. Her father was a logger, avid hunter, fisherman and professional trap shooter.

From a young age, Kimberly was immersed in a life of outdoor adventure. Wet dogs, wet Stansfield’s, and cleaning ducks by the wood the stove is memory that is fondly and easily retrieved.

We often joke that Kim’s dowry was the family passion for hound dogs. It sure has been passed along to Mark and Coen!

One of Kim and Mark’s first dates was guiding a mule deer hunt in southern Alberta in 2007. The rest is an unfolding story.

Mark grew up in southern Alberta and from a young age was into horses and hunting.

Starting at 15, he spent every summer in the mountains wrangling horses and guiding trail rides. During this time, his wrangling led to fall guiding work hunting bears in Northern Alberta and elk and mule deer in the mountains of South West Alberta.

We are excited to bring up Coen doing what we both are passionate about.
