| Keith Hartman of Adventures West Recreation
presents Big Bull Ranches. This group of intensively
managed Trophy game ranches has produced some
of the largest SCI bull elk taken over the
last decade. Each ranch is individually managed
based on game populations and available habitat
on thousands of acres of private land. These
ranches are located in the lower 48 states, and several
locations throughout Canada.
These well-managed ranches will produce some
high scoring bulls. In short, when you harvest
a trophy bull from one of our Big Bull Ranch
locations, we are confident it will make
you eligible for the Safari Club International
record book. So here's a chance to make that
dream of a lifetime come true.
