There are some good quality deer in that area depending on what ranch, and if it's a 10,000 acre mld ranch, you should see some nice bucks and plenty of deer without any problem.

Recent rains have really greened things up down south. Winter weeds are everywhere now so it might have deer movement really down around feeders. Get some good cold weather and corning roads might produce. Ranch should know where and what to expect. County has always had some really big deer. Which direction from Tilden?

Sounds like it is down towards the Clegg Community. Still a good area if it is. With that size ranch should be some good deer. What are you hunting? Bucks usually are broken up pretty good by this time of the year.

He said they had a bunch of tags left so pretty much any buck 10 point or less is fair game..

This warm weather is really greening up the weed growth right now. I hope you get some colder weather when you are down. The next week is mild temps but no rain so far in the forecast.
