With leases totaling 90,000 private acres, Nine Mile can offer you a truly one-of-a kind hunting experience. 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.
