2010 Hunting Season!
We have finished
up the mule deer and antelope part of our season. It was a great year with 15
out of 16 deer hunters being successful and all 40 of our antelope hunters harvesting
nice bucks. This was the hottest first two weeks of October that I can remember,
and it made the deer hunting a little challenging.
antelope quality and quantity continue to increase each year. The last buck antelope
harvested this year was just over 15 inches long and green scored 79 Boone and
It was a pleasure working
with all our hunters and staff in 2010, and look forward to the 2011 season!
We are committed
to showing you pictures from EVERY animal harvested here at the Rockin' 7 Ranch.
We want you to know exactly what you can expect from us as far as size and quality
of our game. From big to small, I'll put every animal on here so if you're looking
to book a future hunt, you will have a good idea of what to expect when you get

Hope things are going well at the Rockiní 7. As usual, we had a great time there
this fall! For completeness, I wanted to send along a picture of Elizabethís antelope
buck. As you probably heard, we didnít get a picture of me and my buck (call it
photographer error!) but here is a good picture of our great guide, Bret, and
the buck! Take care, and keep us posted as to what goes on at the ranch! Say hello
to Rutha P and Steve T if you see them! Have a wonderful Christmas! Tad Dunn Wilmington,
Ha! Thanks Tad, I think Bret just wanted to get
his picture on the website!

Lahn with the biggest buffalo we have killed since we started buffalo hunting!!
19 1/4" horn length, congratulations Matt on a big buffalo!||Sten

Doerfler with a nice cow. ||Vern with another nice cow buffalo--becomming
a tradition Vern! |
Ed John with a big 6X6, picked
out of a herd of 250 elk with about 30 bulls. A nice 261 yard shot (plus a few
extra shots) brought him down. Age before beauty, huh Ed (or is it ladies first!)?

"I love the pictures. I was laughing so
hard when I saw that picture with the snow. Man I saw a ton of that! It snowed
every single day, which made the climbing absolute h*!! for us flatlanders. I
was 275 yards away, on a rock, at the top of some mountain shooting down. Again,
not something us flatlanders are use to nor do we have anywhere to practice these
types of shots, but thrilled I got him down. I can tell you this, great hunt,
loved the scenery, loved the area, loved everything about the hunt, loved the
lodge, loved Rutha, but man I am glad I was in-shape." Fred
another day elk hunting!! Danny, Brad, and Tyson finally getting an elk loaded
and headed for town. This picture is the same day Fred got his elk!|
wife, Heather (never would guess she is 7 1/2 months pregnant!), with a nice 5X5
bull shot at 514 yards with the "Ivan Owen" gun. This gun is a 7mm Short
Mag, weighs 25 pounds, and holds the record for the longest prairie dog shot at
the Rockin' 7--1,693 yards!!|
|Dan Coats with a nice
cow taken with an 1875 sharps 40-90--I bet that's not the first buffalo that gun
has taken, but probably the first in over 100 years! Fun hunting with you Dan
and I won't tell anybody about that Mars thing!|
