Riley’s Outdoor Consulting LLC is owned and managed by me, Jim Riley. My career in the outdoor industry started over 20 years ago when I began part-time guiding. Riley’s Outdoor Consulting LLC consists of five main departments: trip consultation, outfitting, habitat seed sales, fundraising, and specialized marketing for businesses in the outdoor field. I have spent nearly all of my career in the outdoor industry.
What began as a part-time, “moonlighting job” quickly turned into my full-time career. Soon after I decided I was going to try to make the outdoor industry my life style, not my hobby I was approached by Cabela’s to join their Cabela’s Outdoor Adventures team. I had an amazing run at Outdoor Adventures and decided I would spend my life assisting others in their pursuit of the outdoors! I left Cabela’s in order to have a more flexible schedule which would allow me to not only work as an International Hunting & Fishing Consultant but afford me the flexibility to guide in Colorado and eventually Alaska in the fall and South Dakota in the spring.
Five years ago, I merged the trip consultation portion of Riley’s Outdoor Consulting with a successful businessman, world-renowned hunter, and conservationist Jay Link. Jay and I have known each other since our days at UW-Stout. I managed Jay’s International Hunting & Fishing Agency, Our partnership has been a very successful one! We sent hunters all over the world in search of their bucket-list hunting and fishing adventures.
As of August 2017, I am back managing my business, Riley’s Outdoor Consulting and doing what I do best! I welcome you to take a look at the site and see if there is something I could assist you with in the great outdoors!
