Meet The sportsman Charters Team

John Saucier
Owner | Guide

In 2001, John began his guiding career at the age of 17 as a duck guide in Southwest Louisiana’s coastal marshes. Shortly after in 2002, John completed his Merchant Mariner Credential and began charter fishing on Calcasieu and Sabine Lake. John’s passion has always been hunting and fishing and he spent his whole life chasing the dream of one day owning his own business. John started  “Sportsman Charters, LLC” in 2014 to help keep up the Louisiana tradition known as “Sportsman’s Paradise”.

Manager | Guide

Jack found his love for hunting as soon as he picked up a speck call, and he hit the ground running! He’s a hard worker and has a strong passion for hunting which earned him the title of 2014 World Speck Call Champion and 2019 Louisiana State Duo Speck Call Champion along with Shane. He grew up hunting in Gueydan and began guiding when he entered college and has guided for multiple outfitters between Gueydan and Welsh and has also been a part of the Sportsman Charters team since 2018.

Head Guide

Alex grew up hunting in Gueydan and has guided for Sportsman Charters since the 2020 season. Alex loves to guide and loves the work, he prefers snow goose hunting because of the effort that is required to put out big spreads and work the snows. He is all about the hunt but once waterfowl season is over he enjoys fishing for white perch and turkey hunting.


Shane has been a guide for Sportsman Charters since 2015.

He is an amazing speck caller, as he has won the 2019 Louisiana State Duo Speck calling competition with Jack. He also began his journey into outdoor photography in 2019, and loves creating content for various big names in the outdoor industry as well as Sportsman Charters.  Shane will put you on the birds and make you look good while doing so.
