I hunted Antelope at the Werner Ranch the first week of Archery Season in 2010. Connie and JJ Werner are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. This is simple one of the best hunts for the price I have ever been on.
The first day was a little cloudy and I still had well over 30 animals come in. I had several possible shots at numerous bucks that day. The next day the sun was out and it grew hot quickly. There was never more then a short time period when I did not have Antelope within 20 yards of me. After watching several nice Antelope bucks water I decided to shoot a black faced buck I liked that came in. He piled up close to the blind and I picked up my radio and called JJ. He was there within 10 minutes but closer to 5 minutes as he was dropping off another hunter just up the road.
By the 3rd day all seven hunters in camp had taken an antelope buck. One of hunters with an extra tag also took a doe with about three inch horns on both sides. Three of the bucks taken the first week were also harvested with traditional archery equipment.
Be prepared to leave with some added pounds around your waste line. Ronnie the Cook prepares some wonderful home style cooked meals that everyone in camps enjoyed. One more thing to remember here is leave room for desert each night after dinner!
One more bonus we had hunting this ranch was meeting JJ and Connie’s brother-in-law Mark. He is a successful hunter, guide and taxidermist. He is a very motivated individual like JJ that works hard to make you have a chance to harvest an Antelope buck. He was always quick to spot Antelope bucks while driving and educate us non-seasoned Antelope hunters on how to judge the P & Y scores for these animals. I look very forward in going back to the Werner Ranch.
