In the meantime, we are trying to recover from the droughts of 2011 and 2012. Recent rains will help to re-establish food plots lost to the fire and droughts. Our surviving animals are doing well despite the drought because of our efforts to supply them high quality nutrition. We have several trophy buck deer and elk bulls that are available for hunts this season and others to come.
We have re-established our bison herd to some extent and have two really nice trophy bulls available for hunters to pursue. The elk herd has produced at least 5 calves this season which is very encouraging. These new babies will carry the herd into the future with new opportunities for growth.
We planted 4 acres of winter wheat and turnips and 5 acres of alfalfa a few days ago and recent rains are helping to germinate these seeds. We expect to see new growth of these food supplies soon.
Please continue to follow us on this website or Ken Cook Outdoors on Facebook. I will continue to post updates as Tarbone Ranch returns to its former game rich and beautiful site.
Ken's Tool Kit
Here's a new way to buy Ken Cook's Fishing Tool Kit. It is available for a limited time at Cook's Tackle Systems at: http://www.cookstacklesystems.com/ It is the same Kit as I have sold on my website for many years. I also recommend you take a look at the Cook's GoTo tackle organization system. I have used it for years and it truly makes me a more organized angler. No, I didn't invent this one, but it is a great item for all fishermen.
