How exactly does ranching for wildlife work?

Private land....right? Just draw the tag and hunt private for free?

Rifle? bow?

No expert but. . . some of the big private ranches, put some tags up for drawing, no extra fees, TIPS are encouraged with the ranch hands. I think this help them manage there herds and get them some points with DOW. The big dolloar hunters want trophies, because of this cow draws are impossible to get. Each ranch may be a little different. I don't think the one I drew does arch or ML. But I wanted a hunt that would be a good way for my son to have a very positve/fun hunt with a high chance for success. Wanted to keep the boys pumnped about the sport. Elk hunting can test your patients unless you have lots of points and time.

I'm going to have to look into it. So did you speak with the ranch/unit prior to applying? or just applied?

Nope just study the DOW stuff and pick a ranch, check the needed points etc. and then next year when you fill out your dream sheet put in the hunt code for it and cross your fingers.

Noticed a typo in my last comment. Cow tags are possible not impossible.
