Terribly hot and dry conditions in June and July certainly stressed the wildlife on the Pitchfork Ranch. We had virtually no juvenile quail surviving the harsh conditions of mid-summer. The ranch received 13-15" of rainfall in September and October. Habitat conditions are good. Trophy deer are in good shape but seem to have lost 6-10" (compared to previous years) of mass and main beam length due to the extreme drought this summer.
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!!!!
Sorry if we missed photographing your group. It wasn't intentional. If you have a photo that you could send we will gladly post it here.
