* We do not have any cull or management designations.  This fee will be applied to any antlered or horned animal taken. A $400 fee will be charged for young males whose antlers/horns are not  protruding the skin or are barely evident; in deer this is often referred to as "button bucks."  An extra $800 fee will be charged for Axis bucks taken while in velvet ($1600+800=$2400).

** Goats are Catalina and feral brush goats. Both male and female goats have horns. To support goat meat hunts, we set fees for goats at "short horns" (horns 10" or less) or "big horns" (horns more than 15") to distinguish between meat and trophy animals.


*** For herd management, GBL Ranch does not allow harvest at this time.
