Grand Slam of North America Sheep with

Mike Ambrose

HSCF Life Member


Mike Ambrose grew up hunting rabbits and pheasants on his uncle’s farm in central Illinois. He joined the U.S. Navy in 1966 and graduated from Underwater Demolition Team (UDT) training and was assigned to SEAL Team 1. After three tours of duty in Vietnam, Mike headed to Louisiana and entered the offshore industry as a tender and was diving commercially within a year. Mike worked all over the world in the commercial diving industry, having dived to over 1000 FSW and logging more than 6 years in saturation diving. He eventually went to work for Offshore Pipelines Inc. and later graduated to management in 1991, working his way up to Executive VP, International for Cal Dive International. His duty stations were mostly international until he retired in 2010. Mike was later called back to take a position in Thailand until 2014.

Mike began big game hunting in 2006 with a New Zealand trip and continues with some vigor until today. He has over 160 species recorded and has been on all six continents. He received a double lung transplant in March of 2020, and since has returned to golf and hunting, even sheep. He has recently completed his Grand Slam of North America Sheep "FNAWS", taking his Dall Ram in the Yukon in August of 2023, his 3rd attempt. Although he desires to continue his pursuit of International Argali, and Capra Species, he is focusing more heavily on his love for waterfowling.

Mike is a Houston Safari Club Foundation Life Member and a former member of the HSCF Board of Directors.
