This includes two bulls that scored over 400 B/C. In the 2000 hunting season, there were three bulls taken that scored in the 380 range. In 2002 during muzzleloader season, a world record bull elk was harvested in area 231. According to a rumor,it is "The World Record" bull elk. Officials are waiting to make that decision. There have also been many world class mule deer taken throughout the years, including many Nevada record book mule deer. Unit 231 is a highly sought after tag for both Nevadans and non-resident hunters alike because of the quality of deer. Check out our hunting photos page.
The ranch is also uniquely situated approximately one and one half miles from the Utah border. The Utah and Nevada land in this area is approximately 98% public land and is open for anyone to hunt.
