On the morning of June 11, 2007 we were able to award 19 exclusive hunt packages to many different church groups of varying denominations from all over the country. Over 250 men will be able to participate in these hunts at no cost to themselves. Our next round of hunts will be awarded at 9 AM on June 9, 2008. Until our new ranch is established for this exclusive purpose, we are limited in our charitable efforts. To be awarded a group hunt, you must be one of the first to call, as we gave away all 19 hunts in less than 30 minutes. Put this important date on your calendar to call!

This has been an exceptional year for our family and ranches. It has been our privilege to donate over 100 hunts to different charities, Church groups, and fellow hunters. One Hospice patient called the Ranch and requested a place to take one last hunt. It was a most humbling experience to be able to donate such a hunt, and one of the greatest honors ever bestowed on our family. Though completely weak in body, Mark had one of the strongest spirits to do one more time, what he had enjoyed since his earliest days. Mark and his wife Barbara celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary with us on November 24, 2006, before his passing 5 days later. Our entire family was able to spend time with Mark and Barbara, and consider this our greatest gift of the year. Our continued prayers are with Barbara and family. Our Lord is good in life and in death. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

This fall brings several sightings of different cats on our ranches. Just in the last few weeks, our hunters and guides have reported multiple sightings of Mountain Lion, Bobcat, and Black Panther. Because of our large population of sheep and wild hogs, we believe that we have attracted these cats to our ranch, and they are not leaving, due to the ready and constant food source.
