Peterson's Hunting Magazine

The Royal Tine Guide School was featured in the Dec. 98 issue of Peterson's Hunting Magazine and received great reviews.

"...Russ and I were invited to visit Cody Hensen's school in Philipsburg, Montana. We almost declined out of sheer spite for the entire outfitting industry, but our curiosity won out and we ended up amazed at Hensen's outfit. He conducts classes in a remote region of a 14,000 acre ranch, far from asphalt and interstate traffic. He keeps the number of enrollees to 8 per class to allow for increased one-on-one work and to better monitor the progress of each student. Most importantly, Hensen actually teaches the classes himself, going so far as to stay in the wall tents with his students for the duration of the 30-day class session. His desire to provide a thorough education is so intense that he even passes on such oblique knowledge as bow-and-drill fire making.
We talked with each of the students at various times throughout the day and they were not only unanimously satisfied with Hensen's instruction, but elated at their entire guide school experience. Before the afternoon was out, word came that two of the students had secured jobs with an outfit in Colorado..."
