My guide G and I were still searching for Jacob sheep on the legendary Champion Ranch in Colorado City, Texas when we came across this herd of elk.
G let out a call...
And the patriarch bugled back.
Not something you get to see in Texas that often!
After witness the majesty of the elk, we edged down into a valley and upon these blackbuck.
They didn't stay long.
Driving along the road I was taken by the explosive number of quail.
Owner Joel Swan later told me that a recent helicopter survey of the property showed 157 Bob White quail coveys and 150 blue coveys on the property.
I believed him.
There were just a ton.
There's a ram.
Not not a Jacobs.
I never can get over just how massive Watusi cattle are.
No wonder they're considered "Dangerous Game."
Now to see if G can get me close enough for a shot.
My thanks to Joel Swan and the rest of the staff at Champion Ranch!
