John Vanwingerden

Owner of Safety’s Off Guide Service

My name is John VanWingerden and I started hunting when I was 14 years old. Growing up without a dad taught me to be very independent and never give up. I found a good group of friends that introduced me to the sport of duck hunting. After a few failed attempts I made it my goal to be the best.

Four years ago I started Safety’s Off Guide Service to share my passion for waterfowl hunting. It hasn’t been easy but I can thank friends and family for the constant support.

Shane Treloar


Hi I’m Shane, been guiding now for 4 years. Raised in Whatcom County. Chasing waterfowl is a passion of mine and I want to share that passion with the next generation. I spend a lot of my time scouting, putting in the miles with my trusty Ranger danger, just to get our crew under that next big vortex of birds.
