Question #5. How do we get around on the ranch?


Answer: Transporation on ranch is provided by you. It's 23 miles to make a complete
circle of the feeders so there isnt any way we can put everyone out and
pick them up.

Question #6. What kind of electric power do you have on the ranch?


Answer: There is no electricity. Everything is run by generators so don't bring anything
other than your cell phone to charge because the generators only produce
enough electricity for the camp.

to have a big breakfast of eggs, biscuits & gravy, sasuage, bacon, peanut
butter, syrup and more coffee.

Answer: Bring the type of drinks you wish to drink. We don't have or furnish

Question #10. How about booking a guide for the hunt?


Answer: There will be 2-3 men on the ranch who will help any way we can but
it is not a guided hunt. Again, we will help in any way you need assistance.

Question #11. Can I sight in my gun when I get there?


Answer: There is no target range - its all hunting area. Please bring your gun with you
ready to hunt. If you need to shoot a round or two we can arrange that but it's a
hunt - not a target range.

Question #12. Where on the ranch can I hunt?


Answer: We let you look around and then decide where you want to hunt. Most times it
depends on your group size or the type of your transportation.

Question #13. What can I bring to get around with?


Answer: Four wheelers, mules and rangers are all welcome. But remember - everything
here sticks, pricks, or stings (its hard on tires )!

Question #14. What can I shoot when I'm hunting?


Answer: Everything has to be a 6 point or better. The amount of game you harvest is to be
