Angel Wing Outfitters Guides


My name is Ethan Kerk and I’m the owner of Angel Wing Outfitters, LLC. Chasing ducks and geese at a very young age grew my passion for the outdoors in a lot of ways, enough to make waterfowl hunting my life. The memories that I have experienced with family and friends in the outdoors are something that I really can’t help but want to share with others, whether that’s a seasoned waterfowler or someone new to the game. I have been hunting the North Platte River Valley for 15 years and have been guiding somewhere around 10 years. There’s nothing better than watching those late season Nebraska mallards and Canada geese come to play. When you have them fooled, ready to land in the spread, there’s something about it. We want that success every day. You can’t help but want to see, hear, FEEL that every morning, with the smell of gunpowder and the sound of laughter. It’s what makes Angel Wing Outfitters what it is today.


Howdy ya’ll, my name is Jake Curtis and I was born and raised in north east Ohio. I started chasing waterfowl with my dad at the age of 7 and my passion for the chase has exploded ever since. I graduated from Wichita State University (Kansas) with a bachelors degree in Marketing and guided all 4 years while going to college. My favorite part about guiding is the comradery shared between people that are brought together by the same passion. The lesser Canada goose is my favorite species to chase, there isn’t any better feeling to me then being under deafening spins of littles. Looking forward to another season with great company.


Hi, I am Austin Reynolds, born and bred in western Nebraska, I lost my heart to waterfowling and have been hunting for eighteen (18) years.  My passion for hunting waterfowl started at a young age, thanks to my Dad and Grandfather.   I have a great love for hunting dogs and this manifested itself into the hunt test and field trial games. My dogs have excelled in the duck blind.

Ducks Unlimited chose me and my dog, Tess, to be filmed for a thirty minute a TV show.  The hunt was on.  I was able to run my dog (who I trained) and shoot ducks with guides that I watch on TV.  I knew immediately that I wanted to guide, allowing me to share my passion for the great outdoors and waterfowl.

There is no greater enjoyment, for me, than the challenge of finding the best spots for clients through extensive scouting and the thrill of the hunt.  My life is fulfilled when I have my hunting dog by my side, lying is a field of decoys with the sounds of wings all around.  My goal is to provide my clients with a hunting experience where they will say “We will be back next season”.  Years of hunting, studying decoy spreads,  perfecting “calling” in addition to training my labs allows me to lead other hunters through unfamiliar locations for a successful hunt.


Growing up in Western Nebraska, I was surrounded by an abundance of waterfowl hunting opportunities and I started hunting at 7 years old. Since then, I have had a strong passion for the art of chasing ducks and geese. While attending college at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, my guiding career began. Over the past 8 seasons, I have guided waterfowl hunts up and down the Central and Mississippi flyways. My passion for waterfowl hunting, photography, and dog training, has opened many doors for me over the years. I am very proud to be working for Angel Wing Outfitters, where professionalism and excellence is the expectation everyday. My dogs, Roxie and Ellie, and I are looking forward to putting our clients in the best situations to make their adventures with us successful.
