Trevor Manteufel Owner/Outfitter
Trevor brings 19 years of guiding and outfitting experience to his clients. His background in wildlife and fisheries studies in the Dakotas lead him to western Canada where his passion for guiding waterfowl hunts transformed into all things big game. An avid whitetail and mule deer hunter, Trevor decided to turn another personal hobby into a mission to deliver the same world class hunting experiences to his clients. That's when Trevor decided to expand Top of the Flyway Outfitters and offer limited spring black bear, mule deer and whitetail hunts. Trevor offers a one on one experience with his clients to ensure the best possible trophy opportunities in remote Alberta.

Andrew Priester Waterfowl Guide
Andrew grew up hunting waterfowl in the Arkansas delta. He started hunting at the age of five and that passion led to an obsession with ducks and geese. He guided his first hunt at the age of 18 and by the age of 20 he decided he wanted to guide full time. He has guided waterfowl hunts all over North America. Andrew also had a passion for fly fishing at a young age and started his own guide service, Diamond State Fly Fishing. These two obsessions keep Andrew more than busy and he truly loves the "guide life."
