Guided 

“Guided”, chronicles the lives of four, hard-working Texans who give it their all, to make each new client’s dream come true. With mud on their boots and calluses on their hands, these determined hunting guides ensure the job gets done right, no matter what the cost, for every client, every time.

Mellon Creek outfitters

Mellon Creek Outfitters is a 110,000 acre ranch uniquely set at the crossroads of the south Texas brush country and the Texas Coastal Plains. This gives us a habitat second to none for all native wildlife. This fact will become abundantly clear as you drive through the ranch. The amount of game is something that isn’t explained well in words; it’s better to see it for yourself.

‘Guided’ | The other side of the story

Our Team

Dan Braman

Born and raised in Refugio, Texas, he is a Texan through and through. AKA the “Secret Boss’’, clients would never know he owns the whole
operation. Don’t let all his jokes fool you, he is serious about knowledge and has a strong drive to become a better version of himself each day. Striving to be the strongest advocate of the hunting and fishing industry, along with upholding America’s second amendment rights, he is a true outdoorsman.

Hagen Watkins

Born and raised in Uvalde, Texas, he holds a degree in range and wildlife management. He was able to put that degree to good use after meeting Dan at a random Thanksgiving dinner. Eight years later he is managing Mellon Creek Outfitters as well as guiding hunters. He loves the fact there is no typical day-to-day routine, and looks forward to things getting even bigger and better as seasons pass.

Pat Harney

Born and raised in Glocester, Rhode Island, he has been working his way into the hunting industry after deciding a career in finance was not the right path for him. With a motto that “life’s too short to be negative,” he found himself right at home on the Mellon. After being welcomed by the team two years ago, Pat has been successful at filling his clients tags trip after trip.

Derek Woods

Raised in Fort Worth, Texas, he is determined to be successful in whatever life brings him. With a passion for hunting as strong as his love for doughnuts, Derek has decided he’s ready to be a guide. After a successful career as a camera operator for the TV series “Wildlifers,” he’s gained the knowledge and experience it takes to try his hand as a guide. He joins the MCO team for the first time this year, and is ready to make his mark.
