Since returning home, all of those doubts have been laid to rest. “Where you are treated like family” is an understatement. All the statements about Allen and Lori being such great and cool people can’t be explained until you experience it for yourself. I was invited into their home, ran errands with them during down time, learned about hunting ranch life, and enjoyed their company more than words can say. Then there’s Brandon….( a.k.a. “THE GUIDE”). He’s more amusing than a barrel of monkeys, knows about the animals / land, and has a great love of politics. These folks TRULY CARE about their clients. They are not money hungry, greedy, “let’s get ’em out of here as quickly as possible” people. Again, words cannot say enough.
Then there’s the hunt. I was there for the exotics. I saw multiple numbers of fallow, axis, blackbuck and different species of rams. They also have aoudads, more deer species and hogs EVERYWHERE you look. This is a HUNT, not a “petting zoo.” The animals are WILD and have to be hunted. They have multiple feeders set up and spotting / stalking was also a great way to see animals. The land is not at all as I expected. It’s thick, dense, full of cover, and truly a challenge.
I arrowed a GIANT axis buck. Being a big, tough animal, and maybe not hitting him as expected, i called in the cavalry. Allen, Brandon, and Annie the dog helped me track blood and follow trails in pursuit of my trophy.
If you are looking for a great hunt with a LOT of animals at great prices and some awesome hospitality, then Dos Plumas is your place. I PROMISE i will go back A.S.A.P. and will be taking my little step-son to let him take a ram and hog.
Don’t miss out on a WONDERFUL experience. I promise you will NOT be let down.
