Grizzly Unit Private Land

Burnt Ranch Farmhouse

Burnt Ranch Farmhouse

This ranch is located in central Oregon right on the banks of the John Day River. The ranch consists of approximately 2200 acres with some landlocked BLM ground. There are numerous alfalfa fields and water sources for the abundance of game that frequent this ranch daily.
You will stay in the historic burnt ranch house during your hunt. There are 5 bedrooms, satellite T.V. Kitchen/shower and bathroom. If you have down time you can fish in the John Day river for the multiple small mouth bass, as well as see some of the scenic backgrounds this country has to offer. The historic Painted Hills are only a few miles away. This ranch is located approximately 4 hours SE of Portland Oregon.

Archery Hunting

This is a self guided elk only hunt, I am going to sell the entire archery season to one group of 4 hunters. You will get exclusive use of the 6 bedroom ranch house and the property for the archery season. You will be given a tour of the property and boundary lines before your hunt, but after that you are on your own. This hunt can be very demanding and I suggest being in good physical condition when you arrive. It is advantageous to have an ATV for retrieval purposes only. We don’t condone hunting off of ATV’s as you will most likely run whatever animal is around out of the country, however retrieval is a lot easier should you harvest an animal. This property backs up to over 40,000 acres of hard to reach BLM Wilderness land which gives even a better opportunity at finding elk, little, if any pressure is in that area. However there is a restriction to motor vehicles and should you harvest an animal in this wilderness area a pack board will be helpful. I have posted a few pictures of bulls taken from this ranch during archery season in the last few years.
