Results of our 2013 Hunts
Nathan and Skip Taylor (also pictures below) with a six year old, eight point management buck taken on 02-02-14. This buck had 7-3/4" brow tines. I mostly remember this as being a cold day. Maybe not cold by national standards, but in the low 30's, high humidity, sleeting and a hard north wind. It was a day where you come in for breakfast and put on more clothes. A perfect day to hunt out of an open topped jeep. This was our last buck hunt of the season. The hunt ended at noon on Sunday and the buck was taken at noon on Sunday.

Melvin Richnow with a free ranging Sika buck taken on the River. We try to send each hunter home with a extra deer for the additional meat. The extra deer is usally a doe out of one of our high fenced pastures. But we do hunt the free ranging exotics on the river as well. Each season we will take about 10-12 axis or sika deer, plus a few hogs on the river. Melivin took a nice sika buck last year as well. Not bad for a free bonus deer.
Melvin Richnow of Deer Park, Texas with a nine pointer taken on 10-06-2013.
