Sure...just give Louis Bacon a call. He hunts there every year. Of course he also owns the place....
Seriously though, I hunt nearby RFW units every year or two. Your Dad would have gotten a large information packet from the ranch. There should be a lot of sources of advice--meaning ranch personel or local DOW folks--to call, along with their phone numbers. I never hunted a RFW unit that didn't provide you with some pre-hunt resources. Good luck to your Dad.....let us know how he does. What a great opportunity!
we hunted it last year for cows and does, saw bulls every time we were out decent size bulls but nothing I would of shot for the amount of points. that being said I was talking to one of the guides and he said that they averaged 340 class during the earlier hunts so obviously there are some big boys to be had I just didnt see them! Ive actually been accumulating points for this hunt also but to be honest now im undecided on using them there. the property has a ton of roads and youll find most guys stay close to them of course it is kinda hard to get away from the roads! good luck to your dad let me know if you need anymore info
This was what I was looking for thank you. I just have a few more questions, when did you hunt? Did you see any bulls taken during your cow/doe hunt? Are roads used for convenient? It is good to know that big bulls have been killed. We can hunt between Oct 20 -24 and Nov 7-10. I guess will just have to walk a few miles to find a big boy then.
we hunted it last year and previous years your hunt is during the same time as the cow and doe hunts so it will be tougher to find a good bull with people all over the place. but let us know how it goes
It took long enough for the conclusion the hunt. First the ranch is amazing we drove it for 6 days and saw maybe a fourth of it ! We passed on multiple bulls every day because the ranch staff said that there were giants on the ranch. The elk were set in there ways in the meadows before light and gone or leaving before shooting light . There were many days of should have could have shot . So the first day of second season for us we got to the spot saw 4 bulls on this hill feeding up and out of the creek bottom. We got in position and set up glassed these elk for an hour,one elk stood out nice fronts, heavy and wide. continued to glass until my dad said I'm taking him , at 400 yards he let the hammer down , bull down .
This ranch is layed out great , many people road hunt , especially cow hunters , if your looking for cool 15 PP hunt for 300 class bulls this is a great ranch ! Hunters that get out and hunt can kill nice bulls. Our biggest mistake was not have a good spotting scope and binos.
Happy to answer any questions
this would be an easy cow ,doe buck hunt for anyone !
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
