Our Team

BCO consists of a team of highly skilled, professional, and licensed Arizona hunting guides as well as hold licenses in various other states in the southwest. Every one of our guides are skilled in the art of locating quality animals in all corners of the state of AZ. With a ton of personality throughout the group, we often get special requests from repeat clients that want to hunt with a specific guide out of the group again. All very knowledgeable about the various aspects of big game hunting and have had great success in the field throughout their careers and personal lives. It is also important to know that we work as a team in everything we do. It is very rare that you will see one BCO guide alone with a client. We like to team up and give both our clients and guides the best opportunity to be successful in the field. One interesting  aspect of our team is that every single employee of BCO is either a structure or a wild land firefighter. All are trained in advanced EMS and first aid skills and most are even nationally certified paramedics. Being a group of firefighters, clients can rest assured that safety is of our utmost priority and we take your and our safety, very seriously. In addition to being skilled hunting guides and firefighters, our guides all can provide a first class camp and first class meals, tailored to meet any hunters needs. These are the BCO Boys.

JP Vicente

JP Vicente

JP Vicente founded Big Chino Outfitters in 1987. His passion for hunting has led him to seek every opportunity to be in the field, and that is how Big Chino Outfitters emerged! The desire to hunt trophies with JP is in the forefront of every hunter that Big Chino guides. With a long history of field experience, JP is known for calling in monster bulls and shooting trophy bucks. He has spent so many days in the field with the monarchs of the Southwest, that it has provided JP a vast knowledge of hunting these true trophies. JP and crew have countless days behind glass as Southwest spotting and stalking is by far one of the most successful tactics.

JP is a Native Arizona kid that grew up in the outdoors of the central mountains of Arizona. He is married to his wife Shawn Vicente, and have been married since 1983. They have raised a family with 2 sons, Michael and Junior, and daughter Brianna. Their children grew up hunting and fishing and are now raising their families in the outdoors. JP served in the US Army as a Flight Medic and has a well established Career as a Fire Captain Paramedic.

JP loves spending time teaching youth hunters and non-hunters that are getting involved in the outdoors how to hunt and leave the least impact of the environment. The "Leave No Trace" theory of the US Forest Service is something that JP takes seriously and when in the outdoors, he keeps that as a priority. JP also is an avid bowhunter chasing the true trophy's of North America.
