Little Creek Ranch: 45 Years in Business
July of 2013 marks 45 years in the ranching and outfitting business at Little Creek Ranch, Collbran, Colorado. How time files by so quickly. It seems like only yesterday that we hosted our first four clients from Indianapolis, Indiana. And, I can still see in my mind when Travis shot his Dall sheep, in Alaska with outfitter Lynn Castle, at the early age of 9 years old.
Hunting has been my passion for better than 50 years.
While I've hunted my entire life and traveled to 15 foreign countries in search of trophy animals, I still believe the best hunting is right here in Colorado.
Experience and integrity are what makes us different from the others.
Travis and I are in the outfitting business because we enjoy our
clients and the outfitting business. It takes a lot of work to run a successful camp, but there is nothing else we'd rather be doing.
Twelve years ago, I turned the outfitting business over to Travis; he's now at the young age of 43. After he graduated from Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado, he came to work for the ranch. In 1989, we launched our summer business, Rimrock Adventures, near Grand Junction, Colorado. Rimrock outfits rafting
adventures on the Colorado River and horseback riding trips into the beautiful, red rock canyons of western Colorado. We are full-time outfitters. Our livelihood depends on outfitting- whether it be taking clients on a hunt in the mountains or riding the rapids through the canyons of western Colorado.
Life is short, so take your son / daughter hunting. Come on out to our great country and enjoy the outdoors. Memories and pictures of your adventures will stay with you until the end. Just remember, the worst day of hunting is better than the best day at work. Hope you can come with us in 2013 - you won't be disappointed.
