Moore concentrates on bowhunters, but he does take some gun hunters, too. He hunts on his 40,000-acre-plus family ranch near Douglas, Wyoming, and last year added to his available hunting area by leasing his brother's adjoining ranch of another 40,000 acres. With a maximum of 12 hunters in camp at once you aren't crowded, and treatment here has always been first-class. The hunting setup is particularly well-suited to family groups, women bowhunters or bringing a son or daughter along. As for the camp, it's plenty comfortable, and the home-cooked meals are excellent.
Hunters who come here are typically after antelope, or antelope combined with mule deer. The antelope hunting is from comfortable, well-placed blinds at waterholes. Or, if you want, you can stalk your antelope on foot. Doing that with a bow is quite challenging, however, and it's certainly fair to say that virtually all of the better antelope are taken by sitting at a waterhole. It's entertaining to watch the traffic at a busy waterhole, incidentally.
Mule deer hunting at Spearhead Ranch is normally done by spotting and stalking, mostly of bedded deer during the day. Frank's guides know the ranch and the deer's habits, so finding game is usually not a problem. This past year I hunted at Spearhead in early September, and you could have hardly asked for a more productive hunt. Game was as plentiful as I have ever seen it. I was particularly impressed with the good numbers of nice mulie bucks. My only complaint was too much good luck, since I shot both a nice, Pope & Young, 14-inch-plus antelope that scored about 71 and a good, wide, 3 x 3 mule deer buck still in velvet the first day.........(continued)
