What is Ranching for Wildlife?
Ranching for Wildlife is a partnership between the DOW (Division of Wildlife) and private land owners. During the hunting season a large majority of the animals move from the public lands to our private land. To insure a harvest on these animals, we have been given 90 days to hunt elk, mule deer and antelope. In addition we are guaranteed licenses for each species. This benefits the hunter by giving you a broader range of time to schedule your hunts. Our hunts start in late August and end in late November. They range from early bugle hunts to late migration hunts. All tags are for either sex, and can be taken with a rifle.

The following ranches are part of the BIG GULCH Ranching for Wildlife Partnership:

  • Andy Peroulis
  • Cook Brothers Ranch
  • Raftopolous Brothers Ranch
  • Smith Rancho
  • Murphy Ranch
