A rancher that used to post on here often is halfway between Sheffield and Sanderson. His screen name escapes me right now.

We're on a lease for the second year going, also between Sheffield and Sanderson. 10K acres, HF, but no supplemental feed except our corn during the season. It's part of a larger ranch. I've been pleased by what I've seen, but I grew up hunting the hill country. If the rain keeps up this year, I think it will be another good year for antlers out there. Of course, it all depends on what has come before you on the place; number of hunters, etc.

Have you experienced the thriving metropolis of Sheffield yet?

That area can be awesome. Depends on management and rain. Pretty much like everywhere.

And if it's low fenced expect the occasional elk.

I have hunted all over that area. There are white tail and mule deer. I think you can expect 140's whitetail and 160 mule deer if you hunt hard and the property has been managed. The best whitetail I shot out there was 22 in wide and scored 155. Mule deer 20 in wide 167. It is big country and rough. feel free to pm me with any questions.

Thanks rancher. I know what ranch it butts up to, but don't want to just throw the name out there. It is low fence and has 2 tanks that were full of water said it hasn't been hunted in 4 years. Saw around 20 doe and 2 nice bucks in 1 1-2 hours of riding around looking.

Our lease is divided by 406 and 290. 160 class deer on the top end 140's are the trophy range for that area. Occasional Mule deer. Sprinkle in few Aoudad in the area. We have free range protein for the last 7 years and the body weights have come way up.

Factor in the last 2 years have been very wet years so the browse has helped. Should be a good season.

PM. If you need some photos or questions answered.

That all depends on where your going to put them. You can sit a ground blind up on the rimrock and see for miles.
