Okay, I'm back! You may have noticed the elk above. Maybe not. Haha, yeah right! If you missed THAT elk you're blind. That elk is about 577 inches! Is that crazy or what? Of course it's a farm raised elk so it's not eligible to be entered into B&C, but I do believe it is (or will be) listed in SCI's record book under "Estate" (which means it was taken on a game ranch.)

No matter where it was killed it's still freakin' huge so I thought everyone else might like to see it.

Also, if you're not keeping up with the AZOD forum or the AAF website than you might not be aware of an antelope transplant happening in Arizona's Unit 19A. Not 100% positive where the antelope are going, but I believe they're going to either 5A or 5B. I'm working on finding out more about all the factors behind this operation.

I'm also planning on volunteering during one of the capture days so I'll try and get some cool pictures of the capture and post them after I'm back.

I haven't been able to write much recently, as you may have noticed, but upon our return from Reno I'm sure I'll have plenty of pictures, news, rumors, and good stuff to report.

We did finish our brand new brochures just yesterday and they look great! Check one out if you get the chance.

The above picture is David Meyer and Tony Grimmet with the buck we called JoeBoo (the B&C world record.)

Oh, also, we're going to have one new mount at SCI this year - the biggest buck ever! I'll post some pictures of it as well when we get back from the show.

Good luck with the online Arizona apps.

Tally Ho!

Don't Worry

I haven't posted a new blog in almost a week, but don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you. I've been really busy trying to create a new brochure and get a lot of stuff ready for the SCI convention in Reno - the show starts the 24th and runs until the 27th.

If I have a chance between now and the time we leave I'll post one more picture update. If not, I'll be sure to get on it when I return from Reno.

Pic Update!

It wasn't the update I was thinking of, but I forgot that I left the "90-incher" page blank within our website so I went in a fixed it up. I added a ton of new pictures to our site at this link...


It's a link to pictures of most of the 90-inch bucks that we've been a part of over the last 20 or so years. Check it out, I'm sure you'll love it!

My next picture update will be with some bucks of a different sort. Stay tuned.

Tally Ho!

Pics soon...

I just recently located a lot of pictures that I've been looking for. In the next few days I'll get some of those posted to our website and to this blog for everyone to look at. Some of the bucks are from awhile back, but impressive nonetheless.

Tally Ho.

Top 5 Arizona Trophy Antelope Units!

In no particular order...

Unit 10:

Over the last 17 years we've guided to 12 bucks in Unit 10 - only a couple were auction tag bucks - and we've accumulated an average B&C score of 87 3/8 and average SCI score of 89! That's huge for a single antelope and for an average it's downright crazy. That's how consistent Unit 10 has been for us. Our biggest buck during those 17 years was 94 B&C and 97 2/8 SCI - very close to the World Record!

Unit 19A:

The unit has big bucks, but if your private land averse or don't like to see other people (or an entire city) while you hunt then this unit is not for you!

Unit 19B:

See above - and you may not actually even be allowed to hunt the private land - at least in 19A they'll let you pay a trespass fee (for some of it anyway.)

Unit 18A:

Very important - if you're planning on scouting a lot and hunting a particular buck or two then don't apply for a rifle tag - archery and muzzle loader hunters will get first crack at your buck.

Unit 17B:

Private land is in abundance these days and it always seems to grow where the big antelope live. Stay away unless you have access or can get it (we can't seem to,) but at least drive through if you like to look at big bucks.

Tally Ho!
