Thanks for the kind words, ya’ll. Truly blessed to be able to take a fine goat off that ranch. Priceless.

If they are factory size call some dealers.I have bought several take off sets for as little as $200 rims and all.
I look forward to this hunt every year.

I had my reservations about selling tags because I didnít want it to complicate what I have always considered a vacation. When I found out these guys were on board it eased my mind. Thanks, once again for helping the ranch continue to do its thing while letting us all have a hell of a time.

Bubba, thanks. I was just giving Matt a hard time. He was trying to sell a set in the classifieds while we were out there hunting.

My apologies. Been a busy few weeks. FART was one of those trips I've followed on the green screen as far back as I can remember. When I got the invite I quickly jumped at the chance. I've driven through New Mexico many a times but only admired the scenery from behind a windshield. Even seen a few goats as I passed through a few times. This was the first time to put boots on the ground with a tag in my pocket.

Dewayne and Ben scouting from the windmill. I made it about 2/3 the way up and figured I'd best support via pics.

I didn't get any pics but the majority of my seat time was spent in the air conditioned Tahoe which the Zac and Ben had recently added to the hunting fleet. We saw bucks each and everyday. We made a few stalks the first two days but ended up holding off. Being a rookie I leaned on Ben's expertise when sizing them up at these distances.

Can't really make it out but we got to about 200ish of one laid down on this fence line.

I was lucky enough to get on a nice one the last day. Long story short I didn't make the greatest 1st shot and hit him a little high. He dropped at the shot but ended up getting back up and headed directly away from us. We were able to get back on him briefly at 250ish yards only to have him run out another several hundred yards. We finally saw him crest a distant hill which had a cross fence. Come to find out these things aren't much for crossing fences. With hopes he'd hit the fence and run parallel we took off up the hill. Sure enough when we got to top there he was @ 325. Didn't have the best of shot angles but was able to make it work.

It was amazing how far this buck traveled. My first shot was high but the exit wound was the size of a baseball. These critters really are tough.

I can't thank the crew enough for the invite and Ben for sticking with me. Really cool place with some really cool folks. Appreciate it and won't forget it!

Congrats on the awesome speed goats. Man those pics bring back some of my favorite hunting memories from the past. Glad to see the tradition carry on. Having the honor to of step foot on this ranch for a few years is still something I tell my kiddo's about.

Anyone have a better pic of the prongs on Trey's lope? That pic doesn't do them justice...

This is the same windmill.



A few years back we had to leave Gametamer stands on the windmill because the wind had picked up and it was flat too dangerous to get them down. As a result, the windmill could not rotate freely. Eventually a big enough wind blew the top off about 70 yards to the south east.

Congrats on the speed goats. You boys did good!
