Your hunt may be at the main ranch or at one of several other leases, depending on the type of hunt you want and the season you hunt. All properties have been chosen and leased because of their game and habitat. The diverse terrain allows us to accommodate many levels of hunters and their specific needs. Guides at Nine Mile are skilled hunters themselves, and well acquainted with the properties we hunt. Their love of the outdoors and of hunting is evident in their enthusiasm and the personal service they provide each hunter. Our guide-to-hunter ratio is 1:2, and safe hunting is a priority for each and every guide.
