The Pitchfork Ranch is 100% low-fenced. 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!!!!
Quail numbers are poor. Overall antler development is better than last year but still not as good as banner years. Deer herd in great shape with lots of body fat.
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.
