Goal: is to have a 1:2, buck to doe ratio and only harvest
mature bucks, ages 51/2 and older.
Currently in our 2009 program:
- Hunters are allowed one buck per hunter. This instills self
- Maximum allowed harvest is 1 buck per 325 acres based on
- Our hunters are encouraged to take the maximum allowed does
until our optimum buck to doe ratio is achieved.
The 3R ranch deer program is designed to maximize
the quality of whitetails under low fence. We have incorperated
protein feeding along with proper livestock management to
maintain a good deer, quail and turkey habitat. The 3R deer
program is currently a coopertative of three ranches totaling
7500 acres. These Ranches being, Rock Ridge Ranch, Buzzard
on a Rail, and Sims Ranches. All individuals hunting on these
ranches are following the same management quidelines. These
Ranches as of 2009 are under MLD Level 3 program with the
parks and wildlife department.
As deer hunting has become another income to
ranching, we strive to learn more about whitetail deer and
how to manage them in order to produce bigger and better quality
the Ranches: These are deer cam pic's
and hunters pic's form several different ranches. These are
the last 2 years.
