Some of Our Fall Blacktail Deer Hunts

What an unusual deer season we had this year; I can't remember it ever being so hot. We had 100 degree days and deer still in velvet. The oak trees were loaded with acorns, but none were dropping. Mother nature seemed to be about two or three weeks behind schedule. But, despite the less-than-ideal weather conditions, all our hunters (including the four seen below) got what they came for. 

The first hunter of the season was Gordon from Sparks, Nevada. He stuck it out through the blaze and scored a nice 3x3 buck that barely had the velvet scraped off. 

Our next hunter to brave the heat was Curtis from the Northern California coast. Curtis dropped a nice 4x3 buck seen below. 


Then we had Ray back, from San Francisco, who whacked another big 4x4 buck this year. He's been on a roll the past few years-- always good to have him up.

And to finish off the season, Sal returned once again. He bagged a heavy-horned 4x4 that also still had some velvet on its rack. Great work.


Congratulations to all our hunters this year for sticking it out in the unseasonably hot conditions and keeping our 100% success rate intact. Excellent work, guys.

Spring Turkey & Pig Hunts

It's been a while since our last update--things have been busy at the DASH Ranch--but it's finally here: our Spring 2012 Pig and Turkey hunt update. We want to make sure all our hunters get the recognition they deserve.

Spring 2012 was a good pig and turkey season for all our hunters.

At the beginning of April we had Skip and Chris, a father and son from Southern California's Laguna Hills, join us for a hunt, as you can see, they scored a great bird.

Then, we had Paul from Reno get two enormous Rio Grande Turkeys during his 2-day hunt. If you look close, you can see that the first bird has a much coveted double beard. Great job, Paul.

Then, toward the end of April Burl and Ken came down from Springfield, Oregon for a 2-day Turkey/Pig Combo Hunt. They each got what they came for.

We had to track down Ken's hog in a brushy draw; it took some effort getting it out, but as you can tell it was worth the effort for this big boar.

Great job to all of our Spring hunters! It was great having you all here this year.

Update from the Dash Ranch: Turkey and Blacktail Deer Hunts

Well, the weather is changing once again which means a new hunting season is here. Spring turkey hunts begin at the end of this month and it looks like it will be an excellent opener--we've been seeing lots of birds. You'll want to call and book your hunt before it fills up (we're getting close).

Looking ahead to the fall deer season: We have a couple openings for guided, blacktail deer hunts. If you've never had a chance to hunt migrating blacktail deer, now is your chance to do so at the DASH Ranch. We're located in the C-Zone which is a draw, but don't let that discourage you from booking now because your chances for drawing a tag are virtually 100%. Our hunters have always been successful in the drawing. We're expecting another successful trophy blacktail deer season. The hunts here book up fast, so call Dave ASAP at 530.941.2112 or shoot him an email at for more information.
