Pro Staff "Live the Wild Life”

“This was my very first turkey hunt and I chose Ed Van Nostrand of Quality Adventures right here in New York. The first morning, we had a few close calls; on the second morning, Ed called a bird into archery range and I got the job done. Although we were not able to get it on film, it was very exciting and now I know what adjustments to make for next year. I am involved with a television show, "Live The Wild Life”. We travel to remote places in North America with bow and arrow, in search of adventure. As much as I like to travel, I was happy to find a good hunt right here in New York with Quality Adventures. Ed has many properties to choose from with lots of turkeys. Ed has clients come all the way from Canada and I’m already book for next year – can’t wait! Thanks, Ed!”

“My son and I have been hunting with Ed for a year-and-a-half now, and every time we go, it gets better. His expertise, calm demeanor, patience, and overall professionalism make hunting a wonderful experience. We have gained a wealth of hunting knowledge and acquired a greater appreciation for hunting and the outdoors. We are always greeted with open arms and the other hunters are equally amiable, creating a feeling of "family" that is seldom found in other places. We always look forward to going to Ed's several times every year and have put it on our yearly "to do" list. If you are looking for a quality hunting adventure, look no further that Ed. I highly recommend his services.”

Steve Johnson


“Ed, just a note of Thanks for the many outstanding hunting trips I've enjoyed over the years. Each trip is like a visit with family. I've learned so much about hunting from you and from the stories and camaraderie of the other hunters. I highly recommend Quality Adventures for anyone looking for a 5 star guide service.”

“I started turkey hunting with Quality Adventures in the spring of 2002, with (2) other hunting buddy's of mine. Ed Van Nostrand and his staff were very professional, and man could they call birds in. All (3) of us harvested turkeys that year, and for the next (3) years had just as great success - some multiple birds. I recently return back to Quality Adventures (2013) on a muzzle loading hunt. The (4) day hunt was a perfect way to end the season. I saw deer each day I hunted. I choose to hunt for buck's only, my decision. Ed was able to put me in areas where the deer were. I did not harvest a buck that year, but I had a great time. Thanks Ed, I will be back.”

Tom Schassler


“Ed, I want to thank for one of the most exciting and action packed guided turkey hunts that I have ever had. My work obligations only allowed me to hunt the last day of the season, which could be a hit or miss hunt at best. Especially with a bow, but you delivered as promised. We were working birds from sunrise to lunch. The accommodations and gracious hospitality added to a hunt I will not soon forget. Looking forward to next spring for sure.”

Bill Simmons


“My son and I have been hunting with Quality Adventures since 2003. Quality Adventures is an all around, value-packed, guided hunting experience that I would recommend to anyone looking for an absolute great time, whether your using bow, rifle or muzzle loader.”



“I've been hunting for 54 years. Started with my Dad in Pennsylvania hunting small game and then deer. Dad shot a gobbler about 40 years ago in Pa. I've been hunting turkey on and off since then. But to no avail. I read a bit, I went into the woods and fields but I never had any success. In fact, I rarely saw a turkey during hunting season and never got a shot off. I started doing guided fishing and hunting trips in 2009 and I've had great trips and great luck. I know the difference between a good guide and a great guide. I desperately wanted a turkey and cross that off my 'bucket list'. I knew what I had to do. There is nothing like hunting with an expert who has not only the knowledge but the passion for his or her craft. That's exactly what I got with Ed Van Nostrand. He and his wife Lyla were gracious hosts (Lyla cooked up excellent dinners) and Ed provided breakfast and lunch. In 3 days I saw and heard more birds than I had heard in my previous 50 years in the woods. Thanks to Ed and his preparation, great calling and 20 plus years of serious turkey hunting. I had found a great guide. Because of him I had 2 fine gobblers (21 & 20 lbs with 1/ 3/8 and 1 1/4' spurs and 10" & 9" beards and great, great memories.”
