2009 Hunting Season!
Thank you all
for a PERFECT season. We ended up 48 out of 48 on the antelope with 3 breaking
the 15" mark, and we finished up 17 for 17 on the Mule Deer with several
between 24 and 27 1/2 inches. Great trophies, great hunters, and a great staff--you
all are amazing.
Rutha, you and Laura
are irreplaceable, I can't thank you enough for the hard hours you two put in.
Rob, Danny, Mark, Joel, Dan, Tyson, John, Gary, and Bob you guys make it all happen
day after day. Thanks for your dedication to helping others have the hunt of a
had some cold, snowy weather, but it didn't slow down the hunt. We had a lot of
memorable moments--like Tyson giving a new definition to "Mule Deer Country"
and the Trent Wine crew giving a whole new meaning to hillbilly antelope hunting
(more pictures to come on that one!)
Many potential clients
tell me its hard to pick an outfitter over the internet--"How do we know
you're for real?" Well, here's exactly what you can expect when you come
hunt with us. These are the pictures from EVERY hunter we had for 2009--we don't
show you just the biggest two or three from each season or our career. We want
you to see every animal we harvest so you know, "We are for real!"

one with you in it though!|
antelope Sarah-- good job on your first hunt! We'll keep the puzzle for you for
next year, and I promise not to hide any of the pieces (well, maybe just one)!|

you next year!

I wanted to thank you and the Rockiní 7 crew for a great hunt! Elizabeth and I
had a tremendous time, and truly enjoyed meeting Heather and you (and your really
neat kids!) and seeing old friends Rutha and Steve T. I know that Brian, Gary,
and Sharon all had a great time as well."
Tad, it was a pleasure having you again. Looking forward to 2010!
Brad, I hope all is well with you and your lovely family. I have been meaning
to give you a call so I apologize for the delay. Don and I had a great time and
enjoyed your hospitality. Look forward to next years hunt with you and your staff
after getting rid of the extra weight that I put on while I was eating delicious
meals prepared by Rutha. Please keep in touch and let me know about the group
package that I discussed with you earlier. Many Thanks and in the meantime, have
a great weekend. Amir
Thanks Amir, we sure enjoyed
you and Don, you guys were a lot of fun! Brad
come the Mulies!!
and son with a couple of opening day mule deer, Larry and Luke Huch with two awesome
deer-one 25" and one 26".||Jon Wilson with a 27 1/2" mule
deer shot on opening day--that might hold as the biggest of the year Jon!|
been on numerous big game hunts and this one was probably the most organized and
enjoyable hunts Iíve ever been on. They had done their homework prior to the hunters
arriving. We had numerous opportunities to harvest animals/trophy animals. The
guides are local thus they know the area and the accommodations and food were
second to none. Itís a place I would feel comfortable taking my wife or boys as
well. There were four of us in our party and we all tagged out with trophies.
I really canít think of anything I didnít like about the experience. You will
eat and sleep great and you will take a nice trophy animal. The guides are very
good when it comes to judging the size of an animal as well. At 300 yards not
many people can accurately determine the difference between a 14 and 15 inch antelope.
They took care of the meat and the capes for mounting with no problems. I will
point out again that I have hunted all over and this was my best overall experience.
I highly recommend Brad and Rockin 7 Ranch as one of the best in the business.
Thanks, Jon" |
year old, Quinton Payne with a dandy first deer. Wish we could have had that gun
sighted in sooner Quinton--just part of hunting I guess! My kids, Cody, Shelby,
and Paige, are sure looking forward to seeing you again next fall.||Brandin
Reed with the craziest horns of the year--a 5X10 shot on day 4.|
Love with a nice 4X5||A miscommunication and quick shot, left

Thank you for a wonderful time. I donít know how it could have been any
better. I hope we can figure out a way to bring our daughter next year.
regards to you, your family and your wonderful staff,
Gary and Sharon Nunnelee"
Thanks Gary, maybe next time we'll get your deer
closer than 2 days from the nearest road!
Payne with a big deer on opening day--a huge body, with a great rack--26 inch
spread with 6 1/2" bases.
"Brad, I wanted to thank you and your
staff for a wonderful time! We enjoyed every aspect of our experience at your
ranch. In fact,,,,,we are wanting to go ahead and get on the books for next year.
I need some advice on what kind of hunt and dates to book for. I am not sure what
to do for myself seeing that I probably killed as nice of a mule deer as I will
ever see. So I am thinking maybe an antelope or whitetail hunt. Please send my
regards to your family and staff. Respectfully,
thanks Bucky, that is a big deer! Yah, you might get a bigger one, but that's
a tough one to beat.
Antolin came up from Hawaii and shot this 24 inch 5X6 buck. Glad we saved the
best weather for you Greg!||Here's another look at Greg's 5X6.|

Brad and Staff:
Ann and I wanted to thank you and your great staff for
a wonderful hunting trip. The entire hunt and stay really exceeded our expectations.
A special thank you to Mark and Dan for their extraordinary efforts in filling
both of our tags. Boy, those buck mule deer can be elusive. I have attached a
couple of pictures so we can be added to the website 2009 hall of fame".
you Greg, and thanks for making our season 100%. We were down to the last hour
or so of the hunting season, when Greg harvested this nice 4X4.
still have a few more pictures to gather up and get on here. Overall, 2009 was
a very good year. The game was plentiful, and even after the last day of the season,
I continue to see nice bucks--both deer and antelope--2010 should be just as good.
We are currently booking for the 2010 season. Please send
us an email, or call 307-334-2309 and we'll make it happen for you!
