Prather Ranch UPDATE 04-24-24

As much as it pains me to say this, John R. was right. I went up to the Prather Ranch again on Tuesday 04-25-24 and tried to hunt Squirrels. It was terrible, maybe 50 shots fired. I drove around and was able to find a ranch worker who informed me that they poisoned the alfalfa fields where the squirrels were. This was due to lack of hunters, and an overpopulation of squirrels.

She did tell me that they do occasionally poison some areas but this year it was exceptionally bad this year, so they had to really put a hit on them.

Sorry for the bad news but there are still the Alturas Ranches up in Alturas in Modoc county that allows public hunting.
