Hill Country Hunting

Hill Country Hunting

We never know what animals will show up on the seven surveillance cameras we have on the ranch. Every time we think we have seen everything, something new shows its portrait. Recently we were shown a herd of Mouflon sheep, magnificent with their white band across the middle of their body and their curled horns. There was an instance in which we could not identify an antlered animal. It was a Grand Sika, a cross breed between an elk and a Sika. They are similar to a mule in the fact that they cannot reproduce. The meat is tasty. Pictured is a trophy Axis, considered to be over 30 inches. We have photos of a jaguar, a bobcat, foxes, turkey, Aoudad, fallow deer, many hogs and never know what we will see next. A lot of work is involved filling feeders, retrieving memory cords and keeping everything working as well as supplying mineral and salt blocks. The roads are uneven and rough. Only 4-wheel drive can accomplish the task.
