Hey, it's time to move those VO cattle to Abilene! Starting May 17, 2012, Thursday evening, we plan on being organized and in camp. Check in at Bundy Ranch, Riverside, NV 80 miles NE of Las Vegas, Exit 112 off I-15, 3 miles, cross Virgin River, turn right and follow Bundy Melon signs 2 miles to ranch home.
Many of you have asked and offered your help this past month. US BLM attempted to seize my cattle. The emergency is over. Thanks for your support and efforts.
Now it's time to gather cattle under a normal ranch operation. You are invited to help. Bring one or more horse, your tack, bedroll, water canteen, water for your dogs, and two way radios. VO Ranch will supply feed (alfalfa and rye grass hay), grain and water for horses, replace horse shoes, repair tires, fuel, and supply all camp grub. Bring shade if you have some.
We need to be good stewards on this land. No off-roading. Be sure and leave a clean camp. Let's please have no alcohol.
We have a tuff job to do. The cattle are fat and fast, country is rough and warming up. You are responsible for your horse, dogs, and self. VO Ranch has no time to babysit. Help each other. Our desire is to have an exciting good time, get the job done, and enjoy access to Clark County public land.
Plan to start at Gold Butte head quarters on Friday, May 18th, move cattle toward Lake Mead, follow shore line north to Fishing Wash, then up toward Virgin Mountains. The trip could take over a week. I know most of you cannot stay full time. Come do what you can, leave when you need to. We will need help with camps, feed, corrals, fences, trucking, and water.
Bring some help -
COWBOY UP , SEE YA'LL ON THE RANGE AND DONT FORGET YOUR SPURS!!!
