Great pics as usual. Enjoyed the birds nearly as much as the bucks.

Absolutely fantastic photos of some beautiful animals. As a hunter other than the culls, how would one know which buck to take? So many that are outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

A real hunter never returns empty handed. Spending time in the wilderness temporarily satifies the soul, but leaves us longing for more.

Those are some amazing bucks. Those "culls" would be trophies where we hunt.

They have strict guidelines on taking bucks by age class. They start taking the lower end of all 1 yr olds, 2 yr olds then go by minimum point count and score on all remaining 3's, 4's and 5 yr olds+. If a guest is unsure of a buck they can video it, get someone to give an okay and go back to that stand. They hope the buck returns. Had a guest video a buck that was mature/borderline on score and he videoed the buck so it could be judged to get approval. Okay was given but that buck was not seen again for 3.5 days of hunting and hunter was out of time. Many times one of the ranch employees will sit with guest who are not sure about judging deer.

That Would be tough to sit there and see so many good deer, then videotape one to see if it could be taken then lose it. wow

That is about as close to my dream ranch as I can imagine! What ranch is it? Are they booking hunts?
