Welcome to RTS Hunting!

We have been in the big-game hunting business for many years, including working together outfitting as Nine Mile Guest Ranch since 1999. In 2014, we took on a new, exciting venture in Ranching for Wildlife. The opportunity to expand into this program came at an ideal time for us when the ranch, owned by Visintainer Sheep Company, became available.

Hunting is not just a hobby or a job - or even just a business - for us. It is a passion. We are committed to making it the best it can be and we devote ourselves to the many aspects of it on a full-time basis. We pride ourselves on having a lot of wonderful repeat business, on retaining a great staff, and on helping to maintain the lease properties to be the best they can be for all their uses.

Our hope is that each person who hunts with us has a successful hunt. Beyond that, we want each person to have a positive experience, maybe learn something about wildlife, and possibly even make a friend or two in the hunting industry.

9 Mile Guest Ranch and RTS Hunting have this thing figured out! This is a first class operation all the way. The guides are exceptional (we had Travis and Cory) and they worked hard to get us on quality caliber animals. The ranch and lodge at RTS Hunting in Craig were incredible! All of the meals and food were also amazing! Could not have been happier with our experience.

Great place and wonderful people!

I would definitely recommend Nine Mile Guest Ranch and RTS Hunting to anyone who loves the outdoors and loves to hunt. The guides (Travis & Cory) go the extra mile for their guest to fill their tags with the quality of their dreams. The lodge is beautiful and they take very good care of their guests and make them feel at home. I am planning a return already!!
