Default My Son's Hunt at Bar J Day Hunts

My 10 year old son wanted to go on a Ram Hunt for his BDay/Christmas Present this year. After looking and asking around we decided on Bar J. We had a really good time. Barry Sr. was our guide/host and he went above and beyond my expectations to help us. The lodge/house is really nice and it was a great place for the family. The good fishing was a big bonus for my son.

We saw a lot of hogs, rams, goats, black buck, Axis, whitetail and some Aoudad. The elevated bow blinds were really nice to hunt out of as well.

My son ended up taking a nice ram and he is already trying to figure out how he can go back again on an Aoudad or Axis hunt.

My family and I came away with a great experience and nothing but good things to say about the place.

So looking for hunts for next winter/ spring. Looking at Timberlake ranch or bar j. Anyone have any thoughts? Oh by the way I'm new here. I have family in San Antonio but live and hunt in CO. I did my first ram hunt last month at tatonka creek ranch and shot a nice Corsican with my bow but I'm looking for more of a hill country type setting for next year.

Hey Will. Yeah, it's been a "couple" years. We saw A LOT of Axis and a few really nice ones. We didn't see as many Aoudad. A few running off when we were driving, but didn't get a good look at them. Then a couple younger ones when we were hunting.

Spent a weekend last fall at Bar J. Barry Sr and Jr were great to us. We plan to go back. The house and the ranch were excellent.
