I am going to test the water's here! I have not done any guided hunts on the ranch in 3 yrs. and my deer density is the best it has ever been. My buck to Doe ratio is 1/1.5 and this should be an incredible year. I am going to open the ranch up to Archery Only Hunts. This will be traditional,compound and crossbow. The hunts will be guided to semi-guided, The stands will be popups, tripods and tree stands. The Ranch is HF, and is no longer under MLD my choice. I do have an area for primitive type camping with water and electricity. I will not treat this as a day lease and will space the hunts out to limit the pressure on the deer. Like I said I am testing the water a bit to see if there is any interest. The ranch is loaded with P&Y quality deer, and my son took a 5.5 yr. old last year with his bow that scored 147 3/8. I will post pictures as the horns become more pronounced. If you have any questions PM me. I have not set prices yet but will make them affordable. I need to re-coop some of my protein cost(Double Down)

This should be very good. I posted some pictures for John a few years ago and those were some very outstanding Bucks. I can only imagine what the Bucks will look like this year.

Thank you don k, I have absorbed the feed cost for the last few years without doing any package hunts. I have watched the deer grow tremendously. All the doe that I have seen in recent have twins. My bucks are growing horns at a very fast pace. I would have to say I am excited. Just a few more months and I will be retired!

Hi John I hunted with you and Cody a couple years back, I shot the Axis Buck and a 8 point out of Docs stand . I am guessing this is the same ranch ? I might be interested in a bow hunt, I will be waiting to see your prices. Thanks

Absolutely LittleD same ranch we just let the ranch rest for the last 3 yrs in an attempt to allow more bucks reach their maturity and see better bucks.
