ABOUT RUSTY & RHONDA SANDERSON
My name is Rusty Sanderson. I was born an raised in Dubois Wy, On a cattle ranch my hunting career started when I was a very young man. My dad use to take me hunting with him. I started hunting big game when I turned age fourteen. I was hooked on my first official hunt, it was helping a gentleman harvest his Bighorn Ram. From that day on I knew that was what I wanted to do is to be a hunting guide.
I started my career in 1996. Taking out summer pack trips and guiding Elk, Deer, Bighorn Ram and Moose hunters. I worked for them until 2000 when they sold the business. I worked for Outfitters in the Shoshone National forest I helped with summer drop trips, fishing trips, guiding big game hunts and winning numerous timed pack horse competitions, then in 2013 I met Rhonda . Together, we started looking into buying an outfitting business.
In the spring of 2015 we bought Bliss Creek Outfitters in Cody, WY. Packing into the back country with horse and mule and big game Hunting is my passion I love being in the back country helping folks fill there dreams of catching a Golden trout or a nice-sized brook trout or helping a hunter in harvesting a big mature Bull Elk, Mule Deer, Bighorn Ram, Antelope, or a pope young black bear.
There is nothing better than folks seeing the stars for the first time or watching the smiles of joy on their face after seeing the beauty of the wilderness. Rhonda’s passion has always been horses. Since the day she was born she has been riding before she could walk and when she was 3-yrs old she started barrel racing and the rodeo journey began. She has been running barrels and showing cutting horses and numerous other events for many years.
Rhonda has been training horses for over 20 years —riding with some top cutting trainers holding arena records and numerous awards & buckles horses are her life her passion but along side that passion has always been hunting as well loving the outdoors and living the dreams also started at a young age started with coon hunting with hounds and cougar hunting. Her family is into big game hunting as well and she has always loved to tag along. She gets pure joy in helping people learn and ask questions about the horses/mules while they stay in our camp.
Together we strive to make every hunt or pack trip one that our hunters or riders will never forget—from laughter to good home cooking meals and relaxing to big trophy moments. We hope your next venture whether it be hunting, fishing or a summer pack trip will be with us in our beautiful Wyoming wilderness camp.
