We are very for chant to be allowed to hold field trials on the Z Bar.To hold trials on true prairie on wild birds only Quail is hard to find nowdays.The ranch is managed for all wildlife prairie dogs owls Eagles deer bats and birds.This year after the drought quail have returned in great numbers.Rains have the water cover and all needed in this semi-short grass region.The ranch have now provided accommodations for first rate trials We have plans to hold them.We need to have 6 one hour courses instead of three. Surely with 43000 acres to work with this will be done soon.
We do have a good bunch of regular guys trying to put on the best trial in the country.We want the very best of judges and believe me you will get a fair shake out here.When you run on the Z Bar its like going back in the late 50es and all through the 60es.It don't get any better than that.We should have a trial in Feb.
