2007 Biggame Hunting Season
Wow, the 2007 season started with a
BANG!! Hunters bagged over 100 animals in the first two weeks of October. We've
had a lot of fun, and a lot of hunters--from the Mammolito group in New York,
to Joe Gonzalez, a returning client from California, and from the Grimmers in
Washington, to 5th year client Lou Sanandreas in Florida--we've had hunters from
every part of America! We've had several husband/wife teams, and several father/son
Overall the antelope hunting was unbelievable. I think there were
more antelope running around after the season ended than before it began. The
size of the bucks was also big. We had several over 15", with the biggest
narrowly missing the 16" mark.
Once again we harvested some great mule
deer bucks. This years hunt was the largest yet, but since we don't want to hurt
our hunting in the future, we are going to cut back slightly on the number of
mule deer hunters for 2008 which should increase the average age of the bucks.
Our whitetail hunting went well, I've got a couple more pictures to get
on the website, but hunters so a lot of bucks--especially in the 110-120 with
several nice 130-140 class bucks that escaped to grow another year.
elk hunting is better than ever, the bulls are big and plentiful, but we need
hunters to apply for the licenses. Hunters that have one or two preference points--you
guys are getting closer, please contact us so we can be sure and get you in--the
deadline is coming up in January. Hunters that have been thinking about applying,
now is the time. You have a small chance of drawing the first year, but you just
as well start accumulating preference points so that three or four years from
now, you can be chasing one of these big guys--trust me, its worth the effort!
shot more coyotes the first two weeks of October than ever before. We need to
trim on coyote numbers before they start effecting our deer numbers. If you are
interested in putting a coyote pelt on your wall, please email us about the most
challenging, economical hunt we offer!
