About Us

Blessed Bayou Wildlife & Fisheries Consulting

Blessed Bayou is a wildlife and fisheries consulting company built on hard work and integrity. Blessed Bayou’s headquarters are located about 40 minutes east of Houston in Mont Belvieu, Texas. We service all over the great state of Texas and the southeastern United States. Combined, our team has well over 50 years of experience in every aspect of the wildlife and fisheries industries. Blessed Bayou is one of the only companies that excels in both wildlife and fisheries consulting. Just as a food plot is important to a ranch to sustain a healthy deer population, the water quality and forage base in a lake is important to sustain a healthy bass population. Here at Blessed Bayou, we are obsessively passionate about our ranch, deer breeding, and fisheries management work and we dive further into it than anyone we know. We would like you to take all of our experience and use it to your advantage to build your dream deer herd, wildlife ranch and/or fisheries property.
