I had another thread for my farm but it was named "farm page" which was silly, so now it will be called by the farm name.
I do still have the facebook page which can be found here, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Indep...54135171337441
I want to mention that I really don't post my farms activities or other posts to "drum up business" for the farm. I do it more these days to continue sharing info and just maintain a general friendship with people in the industry. As we all know the market is in the tank. But it doesn't mean those of us who truly enjoy the animals and the breeding can't continue to have fun. That is why I share not only pics and video from my farm but also media from the farms of friends and prior investors in my genetics.
I also want to announce that Independence Ranch will now not only be top quality whitetails, but also top quality elk as well.
I have a great deal to learn about elk, but look forward to it. I have wanted elk for many years but always had a crabby person telling me no. Now I don't have that problem :P
I have committed to a spike bull and to two cow calves. I need to collect the info (pedigrees) associated with the animals and then I can share it with all of you. I have complete faith in the seller and the quality of their elk program. They began their program with stock from Dr Mike Bringans who had the very best herd in the world until he recently sold out. I am buying my stock from Dirk and Jane Stolz of Tamarack Deer and Elk Farms.
Over the years I have become very good friends with them. It all started when they purchased whitetails from me. They have grown some monster bucks out of those deer and I couldn't be prouder. I am glad to have a chance to buy from them in return.
My spike bull who is named "Dirk"
(after the seller) is sired by "G426"
22361:G426 is Dirks sire G426 shown above age 5 and scoring 540".
Shown below is Samuria
the sire to G426. He was the world record holder at the time.

As I get more info about the elk I will share it with you guys.
Thank you for looking!
