Our season at Buffalo Butte Ranch starts in September and runs through the end of December. The job requires individuals to be in a healthy enough condition to walk throughout the day with clients as they hunt our fields. Our days can range from 3-4 hours in the field to as much as 7-8. Other duties include greeting guests and going over safety precautions and hunting guidelines. Assisting other guides as needed as well as various guiding duties.
The position has the opportunity to be a long lasting relationship, but in order to understand both you and your dog/dogs, we look to have this as a weekly trial period. This allows both parties to get a handle on how each guide handles clients through the fields and after the hunt.
