Rocky Mountain Elk at the DASH Ranch

The Rocky Mountain Elk herd continues to increase in the Northeastern hunt zone.  The DASH Ranch is unique in that a good number of trophy bulls start to gather their harems in this area for breeding during the fall rut between late August and November. 

Elk season starts mid-September, so if you are fortunate enough to draw an elk tag for elk hunt numbers 304 or 305 Northeastern CA, give Dave a call at 530.945.2112

Deer Season

Deer Season 2013 was a successful season despite the warmer than normal temperatures. We had an inch of rain during opening weekend, but it stayed dry the rest of the season. The acorn crop was better than average, which brought down plenty of blacktail deer. All of our hunters scored bucks, here's a look at some of them.

The DASH Ranch sits within the Deer Hunting Zone C. We also offer Rocky Mountain Elk hunts--for that we sit in hunt area 305 Northeastern CA Bull and 304 Northeastern CA Antlerless. pig, turkey, and blacktail deer hunts on the property. If you are interested in booking a hunt, give Dave a call at 530.941.2112 or visit the website.

Ray, who has shot some trophy blacktail bucks here, was on the hunt for one that could top his last few kills. After turning down a number tremendous blacktails, that most guys would think you're out of your mind to pass up, at the last hour of his hunt he had to settle for this "pepperoni buck." (His girlfriend requested pepperoni sticks, so he had to return with something.)

It has been a busy year at the DASH Ranch, which means we haven't had time to keep up with all our successful hunts on the blog. However, we wanted to make sure to give you some of the highlights from this last Spring and Summer.

In early summer, Rick, from Redding, Ca. came up to the ranch for a one-day pig hunt and scored this big hog. Congratulations, Rick.

And, last spring Bill joined us all the way from Vancouver, Wa. for a two-day combination pig and turkey hunt. He got himself two big gobblers (one of them featured here) and  nice meat pig for his freezer. Great hunt, Bill.

We are looking forward to the fall hunting season; there are a lot of acorns on the ground, which means there should be plenty of deer to choose from. If you're interested in a deer hunt this fall, contact Dave at 530-941-2112 or to check out all our hunts, which includes our newest addition, elk, just follow the link to our main website at:  www.northerncaliforniahunting.com

Happy Hunting.
