Just browsed their site. Looks like an attractive offer. Nice property. I also like the fact that they show big bucks, small deer, and a little buck that a young man killed. Probably very representative of what they have walking around. You'll have to keep us posted along with pics and a full write up in the end. Good luck and have a great hunt.

Thanks.

Sounded actually really good. Archery only, 2nd year in operation and we all know that area is prime for white tail and bear. Wanting to keep the guys there limited, and pushing for ethical hunters.. a nice semi guided budget type of deal.

Looking forward to it.

This may be a dumb question and I could be blind, but I can't find on the site where they hunt out of??  Looks like its got potential to be a real nice outfitter though.

Not a dumb quesiton..but of all the things they do have on their web site, the location is not specifically listed.

They are located just outside of Barstow.

Great place and great hunting. I have dealt with the guy in charge several times and they know there stuff. Its not fully guided but they will put you on deer or whatever it is your looking to hunt. Feel free to give them a call and they will get you taken care of. I live about 1.5 hours from there and its a damn nice area.

To MDGRAND:  Hi there, I read your post above: I also booked a hunt for the deer archery opener at Gallo Springs...guess I will see you there! I plan on arriving on Aug. 31st early afternoon. The ranch looks like there is a good variety of terrain.

2 exciting events lead up to me booking this hunt:  I won a Hoyt bow at a raffle, AND I was drawn for a multi-season deer tag, all within several months.  I figured with that much luck, I'd better get my little butt somewhere good to hunt!  Never been a bow hunter, but I have been practicing all summer so looking forward to a great experience and some quiet time.  My husband is jealous -- he has to stay home with the dogs!  :IBCOOL:

Cheers!  AMM

Congrats on winning the Hoyt!

I will actually be up there a few weeks later, weekend of the 17th.

SO...

I expect a FULL report and for you to leave the biggest bucks for me :)

Good luck!

I will report back, hopefully with a successful outing.  I have no delusions about a big buck, so you don't have to worry, I'm sure they will all still be there when you go.  Cheers!

I headed up to Gallo this last weekend to get the tour and help set up some stands and get some stuff ready for the opener. Gotta say it is one of the coolest places I have ever seen. And the deer, they are everywhere. We saw them mid day in the fields or just walking around we would run into them bedded down. I would not worry to much on which spot to hunt since all the stands and blinds are in prime locations. And the cabins are very nice to boot. Good luck to you all and probably will see you up there opening weekend.

Wow, I did not realize you were going up there to actually help set up. That's awesome. Maybe I could help out there next year.

I will thank you in advance for your work, and am very excited about this.  The land owners are extremely generous and I hope they realize how greatly appreciated people like me (who need support and just beginning) are to have this kind of access.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You  :)

You will have a blast, lots of 20-30 yard shots to be had and more then enough deer to go around.

Best of luck to you and hope you enjoy it.

Big bump. No reports from this? No pics of dead deer with massive racks? No stories? No reviews?

Kettle Falls. Good area for deer and turkeys. I've shot bear near there.
I thought you might be talking about Barstow California, wasn't sure.

Would love to hear a report!

How was it?

I had a great time there: lots of deer, the stands are nice, but also lots of opportunities for still/blind  hunting. I had a shot at a spike, but did not take it.  There was a 10 year old girl there with her dad, and she had a good 9 yard shot at a spike, but the arrow was high and the deer ducked out of the way.  The 15 year old kid who was there with his dad shot a very nice 3x3 from a ladder stand in the timber off a game trail. He was so stoked, and we were all very proud of him. He sat in that stand for 12 hours...no lie!!  Another guy took a shot at a 4x4 and his release misfired and the arrow flew off into the ground...he was bummed....I think the same guy had another misfortunate experience with another buck...oh well!  All in all, lots of deer, great cabins, great people, and unbelievable habitat. 

I had a multiseason tag this year, so I just shot a buck yesterday, otherwise I was planning on going back there for late season.  Good luck to ya'll if you decide to go and sorry it took me so long to report back.

Are you booked up for Gallo Springs?  Looking at making my decisions today on a hunt over there.

Anyone know if this place is still in operation? I saw a brochure somewhere but not sure if it is old or not
