Southern Oregon has long been a desired place to summer cattle. The ranches here are a perfect complement to the winter ranges in northern and central California. Cattle thrive here in the cool temperatures, grazing freely on grass throughout the summer and early fall months. The Antelope Valley Ranch offers a variety of summer feed combining creek and spring fed meadows along with annual rangeland grasses. The cattle here have typically been turned out in the hills and high country early in the season to utilize the spring and summer feed while the large irrigated meadow is allowed to grow late into the season. This lush meadow grass is then cut and piled in the field providing feed for the cattle as they are gathered and staged for shipping in the fall.
The Antelope Valley Ranch is an exceptional buck hunting ranch. With nearly 9,000 private acres of natural habitat consisting of high elevation mixed conifer forest and lower juniper cover at hills. Water, feed and cover is abundant at all elevations.
The ranch is designated as a winter migration area for deer. On typical years, 6 landowner tags are given to the owner per deer season. Careful management has been implemented and the property has not been over hunted.
Drew’s Reservoir is accessable by ranch roads that connect the headquartes to the spot pictured below. There are remnants of an old boat dock at this location inspiring memory-making opportunities with friends and family on the water. This is an excellent place to unwind and enjoy nearly 2 miles of private shoreline.
In addition to Drew’s reservoir, there are a total of seven small reservoirs on the ranch. These are all registered and mapped.
The main source of irrigation waters are from La Seur and Fish Creeks. These waters are diverted into a ditch and applied by flood irrigation in the meadow. Willow Creek and two small springs located south and east of the main meadow are also certified for irrigation.
Along with the streams and reservoirs are several domestic wells that are in service throughout the ranch.
