We work full-time on our farms throughout the year to ensure our clients have the best odds at a good buck in the fall and/or opportunities for longbeards in the spring. We have a TEAM of very talented guides & staff that will work hard to make sure your time spent with NMBBO is memorable.
Cody Blankenship, Owner/Outfitter/Land Manager/Guide
I grew up hunting as a young child with my father and brothers. The outdoors has always been a passion of mine and it's great to share that experience with so many wonderful people here at NMBBO. There are no guarantees that I will be your personal guide or be there when you arrive as I am a hands-on owner taking care of everyday needs which are numerous during the peak hunting seasons. I will however, meet and speak with each of our clients at some point during their hunt. In the meantime, my team of staff/guides will be present and are guaranteed to meet your every need. We are grateful for your business and look forward to hosting each hunt camp family. "If you can't wake up each morning and enjoy what the good Lord has Blessed you with, you are in the outdoors for the wrong reason!"

Jon grew up hunting whitetails in the timber of Northern Michigan and began providing his guide services at "The Sanctuary Ranch" in Big Rapids. He began hunting with NMBBO in 2018 and joined us as a guide in 2020. As the owner and President of his own company, Elite Concrete Solutions, LLC, Jon understands true customer service and satisfaction and brings that same passion each fall to his whitetail clients here at NMBB.
Michael Caputo, Guide
Introduced to the outdoor world of fishing, deer, and wild turkey by his dad in the hills of Northwest Pennsylvania in the 1950’s and 60’s, Michael continues to share this outdoor passion by guiding clients of NMBBO. Known around camp as the “Turkey Whisperer”, Michael (a retired Healthcare Executive) has been hunting the farms of NMBBO since 2010 and guiding turkey and deer hunters since 2015. He is passionate about assuring that his clients enjoy each and every hunting experience and this Kentucky native will work hard to make it happen. He firmly believes that "You must be present to win"!

Matt Wynia, Guide
I grew up in the Zeeland, MI where my Dad taught me to hunt and fish at a very young age. I enjoy hunting waterfowl, predators, wild turkeys, but bow hunting whitetail deer is my real passion. Beyond hunting, I enjoy traveling to different areas around the country, exploring the beautiful creations that God has Blessed us with. I feel very fortunate to be able to work with the team at NMBBO, assisting our clients as they pursue their game.
