December- Drastically Colder and Dangerous

 12/27/13 (2) Alyssa Dixon & Cole Johnson, and Justus on FLIR.  We went down the “roller coaster”, then while everybody was still laughing, Justus called out a big boar running toward fence near duck pond.  We went fast and got behind him after cattle guard.  Very large boar, took many rounds to bring down.  Exciting […]

November – Many, Many Exciting Adventures

  11-29-13 21:30:  Jon Kimmey and Jocie Ortman were our shooters, along with Liz Cortez on FLIR, Dominic Zimmerman on 6.8, and Austin night vision spotting. We enjoyed a great night under the stars as we searched for activity on the farm. The shooters took sometime at the range to become accustomed to the systems, […]

Hats off to our Favorite Hunter

From Mike Brown to those of you who have been hunting or had the privilege of meeting and      loving Maggie:     I wasn’t going to do this because I didn’t want to make everybody sad but, I wanted to share a picture of our beloved family dog and tremendous hunter Maggie. She was […]

October – Pigs on the Prowl

OCTOBER (24 kills; PFR 8:8) October Returns To Normal.  Found pigs every hunt, always on the ranch while none on the farms, just like it has been every year except 2012.  The lack of acorn crop seems to be having a positive effect, at least for now, as pigs are moving all over the ranch […]

September Adventures

 9/26/13 23:00 (2+) Cole Johnson, Joe Johnson, Erin Wyldes. We were very sad to learn recently that Maggie the Wonderdog has lymphoma.  We are told that she is not going to be with us much longer – so we wanted to get her a pig to chew-on while she can still get out and hunt!  […]

It’s already August?

AUGUST (PFR 5:5 ; 8 kills) 105 kills so far in 2013.  They have not gotten problematic on the farms, even after rains which is surprising.  They are around but they don’t seem to be rooting.  It is too late in year for them to be on ranch until new acorns fall in Oct.   […]

Justice served in June!

JUNE 2013 – (PFR 7:7; 29 kills – new June record!) Continued to be amazingly good!  Found and killed pigs every time we went out!  They seem to be going-back to the trees to find nuts that have been laying there since fall?  Continue to see them in the fields, and the fence line virtually […]

Messy May- Sod Destruction

MAY 2013 – (PFR 7:7; 14 kills – new May record!) Continued to be surprisingly good, a herd stayed-around the front for weeks, damaging sod we had installed, finally we started to get them later.   5/25/13 (5) LJB.  They shot solo on South road across from the fields, then a pair in front by lake […]

Amazing April Visitors

APRIL 2013 – (PFR 6:6; 21 kills – new April record!) Amazing how good it was, ended-up hunting a lot because we had many visitors. In a few fields, on the ranch, but not much on the farm.  APRI – 21 (New record!) 4/27/13 (0) – Allison’s Lifegroup.  Hunted as  a storm came in but […]
