I did in 2013. I popped a seven point. Lots and lots of deer. I also saw what I think were Blackbuck prints while I was in the compartment.

I did in January 2019. Killed some pigs. I don’t think anyone killed a deer or saw an exotic. They said they have exotics there but they are very sparse. The amount of pigs was unbelievable.

I've never hunted there, but the harvest reports have never sounded great, which is weird. I'd think this place would be loaded with game.

if they don't feed the animals move out to adjoining areas.


The North Side of that ranch off of 462 has never held a lot of game for some reason.

The biggest problem there is that it is one big, rough cedar break without a lot of water.
