What a year!!!  Abundant rainfall has produced many long-tined bucks and large coveys of quail.  Several bucks grossing over 160 B&C points were taken including the new ranch record typical gross scoring over 186 B&C.  Quail hunters are enjoying lots of shooting while moving well over 20 coveys per group per day.  Once again, what a year!!

The Pitchfork Ranch is 100% low-fenced with no protein feeders.  All rifle trophy deer hunts are spot-and-stalk.  This is a real hunting adventure.  All quail and other game birds are 100% wild.  No pen-raised critters here!!!!
