THESE ARE THE POINTS I FOUND ABOUT THE RANCH, TAKE CARE WHEN YOU ARE BOOKING HUNT , MAY HELPFUL
1, EVEN YOU COULDN'T GET SHOOTING OPPORTUNITIES THEY WILL NOT RETURN THE HALF DEPOSIT. ASK VERY CLEARLY WHAT IS THE SHOOTING OPPORTUNITY. HE TOLD ME IF ANIMAL SHOWED UP THAT IS SHOOTING OPPORTUNITIES.
( they will offer animal from the pen or you can return back and hunt again and again but with multiple hunters)
I saw two hunters hunting from their pen ( about 6 acre or less land , lot of pigs, about 6 small elk cow and a spike bull, ram , one barasinga , above twenty number axis , one white tail , it will change every day.)
Saturday they offer me to take one from there , I refused .
2, THEY WILL ALWAYS PUT HUNTERS IN THE BLIND ( number-01) NEAR ENTRANCE , EVEN PIG RUNNING AWAY WHEN THEY REACH THIS FEEDER, HIGH HUNTING PRESSURE.
I bought alfalfa still nothing is came and ate from there. If you are looking for a successful hunt avoid that blind , take some blind near the pond,
( it was too late for me recognize the ranch.)
3, THE GUIDE IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR FREE MEAT ( YOUR PAID MEAT)
Saturday he told me to shoot the red stag the one is injured on last Wednesday , the guide was very interested on scouting, but once we found he is dead, we didn't see any interest for scouting on Saturday. He will put you in a blind near the entrance where there is no deer movement. I saw some animal moving around but nothing is coming to the feeder. Newly dropped animal may come.
Once see the animal instead of providing shooting set up by reversing the vehicle they will come out from the vehicle, the animal will start moving, so you will not get a good shooting opportunities. I feel they are not looking for a kill shot.
My cow is still at the ranch ; I didn't get any call about it even I offered 400 dollars , shot and inform me, but I have no scope. I will let you know if I get a call.
During the injured elk search just started drizzling , he told we have to leave the area , I ask why, he told it is not safe to drive, I told we are not driving here just walking , he told still it is not safe. but I refused. the guide and my partner was together , they found the elk was about 20 yard close, it was just standing, he told my partner he is moving that to towards me and disturbed him , when I reach there it already gone . He always tried to quit the search from the beginning from different reason. They promised they will get it on next day. The guide saw it on Monday , he told me he didn't have gun with him . He don't care about the blind hunting.
4, NO GUIDE WILL BE WITH YOU WHEN YOU ARE DOING HUNT IN A BLIND ( small animal it is ok white tail doe or hog)
This is the most confusing part when we are hunting ELK cow like large animal in blind , guide didn't stay with us .
May be they have sure nothing will come up there, or any other hidden agenda, I am not sure.
