Additional Information: Visintainer Ranch RFW is located in an area where elk are substantially over herd objective and the elk herd is migratory. The ranch is working with CPW to aggressively harvest antlerless elk to assist in achieving herd objectives. Since antlered elk do not always remain on the ranch and harvest levels off the ranch are high, the size of bulls available to hunters should not be considered "trophy" class.
