    Another year of hunting is in the books. This year was a challenge like everywhere else. We had the most moisture I can ever remember. We sell our calves it two groups every year. The first group we had to cancel for two weeks due to snow and ice storms and the second group we had to cancel for a week. Our hunters were still able to fill their tags before the storms hit. There were some nice 4x4 mule deer bucks and some cow elk taken off this year. I was so far behind I wasn’t able to get any pictures of what was taken off. Our hunters showed up and filled and had to hurry home before the next storm hit. I did get some nice ones that were still left afterwards. We have a few openings for archery next year and so far we don’t have any antelope hunters lined up for next year either. I hope everyone else had a good year as well and were able to get out and home without any trouble. Good Luck and Good Hunting.

    We are in the SE Corner of Montana about 45 miles SE of Ekalaka Montana.

    Just made the drive down from Wibaux to Alzada last week, things looked pretty decent as far as grass, hopefully we get some moisture in the next few weeks to continue it. What size mulie bucks you get down that way? I lease a ranch with a few others out by Big Timber, the mulies are doing pretty well , a few approaching 30" are around . The elk are really doing well, ranch family has asked us as a goal to take 50 head of elk off of place this coming fall and winter, with the shoulder season. A 408 bull was taken last fall and rancher has seen one he claims is bigger then that one, LOL. Starts to get a person fired up with that kind of talk.

    We are getting dry and those damn grasshoppers showed up so trying to get a little hay rolled up before it burns up or ate up by the hoppers. Suppose to get some moisture the next couple of days so I'll keep my fingers crossed. Wild life is doing great all the Mule deer does around looks like they had twins or triplets, antelope had a good crop this year also, the elk are still up in the higher country and I've been to busy to look, but I did see a few herds the last time I checked water and they were all cows and calves and they too had a good crop. Bulls are still off on their own so haven't seen much yet. Here are a few things I've been seeing on my way to work, but nothing really shows up until that first cold snap.
