Theyíve killed a few decent deer over the years. Last I knew they donít do any protein feeding though.
There used to be no axis, but they are slowly getting some. Ranch owner charges extra to shoot them so to my knowledge they havenít killed any, the landowner does keep the right to day lease in the off season but not sure how much he does, if at all.
At one time there were some blackbuck in there but not sure if they are anymore. The times Iíve been there Iíve never seen them.

Those guys arenít that serious about it, they enjoy a good campfire with a bottle of crown more than anything. But they do not shoot the place up.

Everyone is saying congrats to ya'll. But everyone really means to say, is do you need another friend. "I'm your huckleberry"
Enjoy your place. We picked up 84acres in Rocksprings and love it. But we swim in the windmill tank.
