Welcome to My Office!

Royal Tine Guide School

A job in the outfitting and guiding industry is one of the most exciting and self-satisfying careers today. Backcountry recreation is growing at an amazing rate, and so is the need for qualified guides.

The Royal Tine Guide School, is located 17 miles west of Philipsburg, Montana, along the headwaters of the famous Rock Creek River. The school was developed as a result of the demand for guides equipped with more than luck and a few good stories. When you graduate from Royal Tine you will not only have a more comprehensive knowledge of your profession and everything that goes into the outfitting business - you will be in demand!

You will receive instruction in the following four areas: horsemanship/horseshoeing, horse and mule packing, outdoor/woodsmanship skills, and guide/hunting skills. Experts are provided in specialty areas to give you the benefits of a wide range of experience. The last part of the class will be spent on a pack trip where you will put your new knowledge and skills to use. We are limiting our enrollment to a maximum of eight students per program, so there will be ample time for individual attention.

This camp is the real thing! There is no running water or electricity. Facilities will include: a kitchen tent, tents for students, and other tents for equipment, tack and crew.

Here is your chance to make dreams of an outdoor career come true. If you are serious about guiding and packing, then join me for the best time of your life! I look forward to sharing my love and knowledge of the outdoors with you.
