Scottish Rite Hospital for Children owns it now. I killed my first deer there in 1980 back when it was privately owned.

I ain't tangling with Big Earl

Seriously, the Rocker B is a great ranch. I kick myself for not going on some of those hunts but at the time $1,500 was too much. Hail, I'd buy 4 spots today at those prices I thought you were going to bed ??

William Blakley owned it before he died. It ALL (minerals and surface) went to the hospital after that. No telling how much oil & gas revenue that ranch produces for the hospital. Just awesome.

Stupid.......PM sent.

I can vouch that it is a great ranch. I hunted there in the 80's as well and killed a pronghorn. My grandfather was a guide on the place at that time, but I heard they did away with the guide thing. Back then the quote unquote guides would draw for a particular pasture and then was alotted so many tags for paying hunters. I think my grandfather used to get a free pronghorn and whitetail tag out of the deal and that was his compensation for being a guide. I'd love to go back someday.

I grew up hunting that ranch. Back when it was day hunted. I have pictures of some dang nice bucks my family killed over the years. They hunted pronghorn out there also. We havn't hunted it in about 10 years. They are killing much better deer now b/c they manage it. The best deer my dad killed was a 162" 10 point and my brother killed a 156" 10 that is 23 inches inside. I still have the map of the ranch in my closet. I believe it is 167,000 acres. We mostly hunted the Red House and Point pastures. Also hunted West Snow, North Mustang, Elbow Trap, Upper and Lower Centrailia, Elbow Horse Trap, East and West Whatley, Chili Trap, and South Mustang. Man I would love to go back and hunt for old times sake. I killed my first hog on that ranch when I was 6 or 7.
