Hunting

I only hunt coyotes and gophers, and that’s good for you because it leaves more ducks. I don’t shoot them off before you get here. A local hunter, David Shockman, tells me we have terrific consistent Diver¬†hunting here.

DUCKS common to our area:

Blue bill
Ring-necks
Buffleheads
Canvasbacks
Redheads
Mallards
Pintails
Gadwalls
Spoonbill (Northern Shoveler)
Wigeons

CRANE come through and love our stubble fields.

GEESE:

Snow geese (blue geese)
Canada geese
Giant Canada geese
Greater White Fronted geese (Speckle Belly)
Ross geese

The PHEASANT population has been consistently strong for many years.

COYOTES

There are over 12,000 acres available for hunting. Although some is cropland, many acres are used for rotational grazing. It’s understood that wildlife prefer cropland, but rotational grazing enhances wildlife habitat while remaining walk-able¬†for hunting.
