Matt Kostka

I am the hands-on owner and operator of Top Gun Guide Service, USA and Canada. For nine months of the year, September through May, I stay active with goose hunting guides, fixing equipment, scouting locations and making sure our clients have the best hunt possible. In the off season I secure key hunting locations and work on ways to take it to the next level. Always.

The list of guides below are hand-picked, a few I’ve known for over 25 years. The are hard working, passionate, hard nosed, and dependable, spending countless hours reading and studying birds, and calling every species of waterfowl. Top Gun Guides are low ego and high energy and work to make every day in the field a hunt of a lifetime for our clients.

I have been with Top Gun Saskatchewan since 2007 and have put our customers on 95 percent of the fields since!  I look forward to the spring and fall every year and enjoy meeting all the great customers that we have every year from the states. In the off seaosn I enjoy hunting moose, elk, jumpers, and Mule deer in my back yaaaaarrrdd!

Growing up a farm kid in Minnesota is probably what fueled my passion for the outdoors and hunting. 

I enjoy both big game and waterfowl hunting. I’ve hunted all over the US, Canada and recently New Zealand.  I’ve been successful on buffalo, caribou, elk, pronghorn, whitetail deer, mule deer, moose, red stag to name a few.  I’m always planning my next trip.  

I’m lucky enough that hunting has become part of my career. Nothing quite compares to laying in a field when a massive flock of geese just “does it.” I look forward to seeing you in the field!

I grew up in northern Minnesota, just south of the Canadian border. I’ve been hunting since I was 3 and introduced to waterfowl at the age of 8. Before becoming a guide I used to drive rodeo living life 8 seconds at a time on the back of a bull before the bull gave me an early retirement. In the early fall season I guide open water divers out of layout boats in the northern most point of the lower 48. I jump on with the Top Gun crew when the ducks head south and for the spring snow goose season north. I guide waterfowl for 8 months out of the year. In the non-hunting season am a full time fishing guide on Lake Of The Woods in  Minnesota, and Ontario waters. I’ve hunted a variety of different game but chasing waterfowl is my passion.  My yellow traveling partner and bird getter is named “Grouse”.
