Joe just returned from a 12 day hunt in Alaska for brown bear. Unfortunately he was unsuccessful in taking a big browny. He did return with some great stories to share this year during our fall hunts at DRO.
Next in line for both of us is a trip to Wyoming in August for an archery antelope hunt with our good friend Jay Lesser of Wyoming Professional Hunters. We’re sure to have a great time and we’ll post any stories and photos from that hunt.
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!
I wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you for a fantastic 2009 season! We finally finished up our hunts and closed down shop for the year on December 9th. I have to admit after hunting 83 of the past 102 days I went back home to Colorado and did nothing but relax and enjoy the family. I said relax but with a 10, 7, and 4 year old it’s anything but relaxing. The last three weeks have been filled with indoor soccer, basketball, football, wrestling tournaments, homework, Christmas shopping, and in-laws. Believe it or not I’m ready to go back to gutting buffalo! I tell my wife sob stories about times when we’ve had to hunt, dress, skin, cape, and butcher three buffalo and three elk in two days. She just laughs and says I couldn’t hang with her on my best day. She’s right! read more »
So here I am, at Dismal River Outfitters in Western Nebraska, place called Sand Hills. It is mid November 2009 and this is my third time here. Dismal guys run awesome outfit, this is one of the few places that makes me feel like home. Very nice and friendly people, comfortable and clean lodge, beautiful area surrounding Dismal River. I have always felt so good here. And I’m in for a surprise this time. read more »
I remember when the TV host Dirt King invited me to hunt elk to Sand Hills, Nebraska back in 2006. I was little curious about hunting elk in Nebraska, but I trust Dirt. Any hunting experience with him so far was successful and lots of fun. I am quite busy at work, so I can’t afford to take 10 days off and backpack in the mountains hoping to find elk. I am on a tight schedule and the pressure is on when shooting TV show. It is not about what the hunter sees and does, it is about what the camera can capture. It is an important show as I am using CZ 550 Ultimate Hunting Rifle in .300 Win Mag, new product for the year. read more »
