Overall Impression: Wow

I hunted Jason's ranch in early October of 2006, looking for a management whitetail buck (plus a cull buck). I had been on a doe hunt at T Bar EnCino in January of 2006 and was impressed enough to invest in a buck hunt for the following season. My experience was terrific. I am not an experienced whitetail hunter, and Jason was not only an excellent guide but an excellent teacher. We spent many hours in stands together, and I enjoyed his company as much as I enjoyed watching for deer (and there were many). Jason's ranch is high-fenced, which I know isn't to every taste, but at 1,000 acres, it's plenty big. Jason, who has a master's degree in wildlife management, really knows his stuff, and the work he has put into managing his deer herd has paid off. His deer are gorgeous--not the freakish super-huge monsters of some ranches, but nicely proportioned and just great to look at. If that weren't enough, the accommodations (in a cabin called "The Barn" because it's a rebuilt barn) is very comfortable, with plenty of room, a full kitchen, and full bathroom. "The Barn" has lots of rustic charm--so much so that my wife (a non-hunter) enjoys tagging along with me just to spend some quiet time in a peaceful place. And if *that* weren't enough, Jason's wife, Tammy, is an excellent cook; we enjoyed every single meal. Jason makes a point of eating with his hunters, which I appreciate. As for the hunting, we saw numerous management bucks, any of which I'd be proud to take. I bagged a 10-pointer, scoring 119 gross and a 5-point cull buck that scored 72. Jason has a modern processing shed, and cleaning/caping is included in the hunt price--a nice touch. My wife and I both had a wonderful trip. I'd recommend this hunt to anyone looking for a quality high-fenced whitetail hunt at a very competitive price. Email me for photos of my deer and some other photos of the ranch (accommodations, other wildlife, etc.) or if you have any specific questions.
