Spring Hunts

posted May 12th, 2010 by John

We just finished up a fantastic 2010 spring hunt at Dismal River Outfitters!  Our good friends Robin Poluch, and his wife Alice Poluchova, who is the President of CZ-USA, joined us last week for our first ever Texas Dall Sheep hunt.  These beautiful white sheep are one of our newest exotics at DRO.  Dirt King, host of Hunting University, and his cameraman LJ Planer, also joined us to film the hunt for an upcoming episode of Hunting University.  Both Alice and Dirt were fortunate enough to each take one of these huge Texas Dalls.

The Texas Dall Sheep originated in Texas in the 1960’s on the YO Ranch.  A successful cross between a Rambouillet ram and a Mouflon ewe created this white shedding sheep now known as the Texas Dall.  These sheep can grow horns that weigh up to 30 lbs which is more than all the bones in their body combined.  We are really excited about the opportunity to offer trophy Texas Dall sheep at Dismal River Outfitters!

Thanks to Alice, Robin, Dirt, LJ, and all my great staff at DRO for making this a terrific hunt!
