    Anyone recommend a ranch to hunt Axis deer

    Yeah I lucked out it only cost me $50 for the 5 day hunting license which is good for exotics and gas money. Still hunting the river bottoms is a blast. This one is 29 inches.

    My Desert Sheep Hunt

    Well it all started when my credit card got hit for $300 from G&F and i knew that could only mean one thing. I wont even say how many points i had because it is just ridiculous how lucky i got but i had under 10 points. I had very little experience in the unit i drew so i knew it was going to be a lot of work and hours beating up my truck and sweating in the heat but that was fine with me. I met some great guys from this site and some of the past hunters in the unit that really helped me out a lot. I don't need to mention names but they know who they are and i appreciate all of the help. Scouting proved to be much more challenging than I expected. My unit received record rainfall which was very good for the area but it did seem to spread some of the animals out. Fast forward to the hunt and opening morning had me and my hunting buddies on the same glassing spot we were at the weekend before and after about an hour i glassed up a nice Ram. My goal for the hunt was to shoot a nice mature Ram and this one looked great to me so off i went on my first and last stalk on a desert sheep. Made it to 400 yards and waited forever for them to stand back up because they were out of view from my shooting location. Once he stood up I started shooting away and hit him a good three times. He went out of view but the guys i had watching him said he was hit hard and after a couple minutes the boys yelled in the radio that he was dead. I couldn't be happier with him as he is a great ram but it is a little bitter sweet that it is all over. Time to start putting in for Rocky Mountain Sheep.... G&F aged him at 8 years old. Thanks again to my family, and friends for all the help. Hope everyone enjoys the pictures.

    Weimaraner for sale!

    I think most people would agree that a dog is not something you just buy and return or sell after two weeks but maybe that is just me. Idiot

    Weimaraner for sale!

    I feel like that is exactly what someone would do that found it or took it haha but not saying that is what you are doing.

    Weimaraner for sale!

    I was just wondering why you are selling it? You buy it and then just decided you don't want it two weeks later?

    Weimaraner for sale!

    why would you keep it for 4 months and then sell it?

    Tree Stand Recomendations

    I have an XStand set up and its been pretty nice so far. Definitely a pain to assemble and has some squeaks but other than that pretty solid.

    Desert Forkie

    I would. I like the way big 2x2's look, especially with eye guards.

    That is awful to hear. I haven't been out there in a long time but always liked that area. Maybe Jim can chime in on the Double T as he was so quick to defend the other ranch.

    He is talking about a spot in 23n where there are not a lot of cattleman’s water tanks but more natural springs and creeks. He also said they are not against cattle.....

    Unit 36c

    Part of the fun is learning where to go and the trial and error of finding new places. Just my opinion.

    I hate running into cattle on hunts and with all the attention Unit 23 gets on forums and podcasts, etc, adding more cattle seems like the last thing the unit needs.

    41W Sheep 2019

    Congrats, post some pictures once you're hunt is finished. Also, I have talked to plenty of people that passed on nice rams the first day and could never find them again. I agree with everyone that taking your time is great advice, just throwing that out there.
