The 2014 Oregon Cattlemen's Association Meeting was the event's 100th anniversary and attended by a great group of people. The couple days were filled with work shops, conversation and laughs. A little business got settled also but I can say when you get a room full of cowboys together with music, casino night gambling, and some beverages, you're going to see some folks have a good time!
Wow! Here we are, mid-October already, and that means elk are bugling. The weather is changing, we are getting rain, and there’s frost in the mornings. Everyone’s running around gathering their fire wood, filling their freezers with wild game before winter sets in and singing jingle bells! Here on Eastern Oregon hunting properties, folks are really enjoying the great outdoors and hunting opportunities that are readily available. Deer season just ended and looks successful, with quite a few locals getting some nice bucks. Elk season promises the chance to bag some really big elk this year.

Oregon ranches offer some of the most diverse recreational and agricultural investment opportunities. Here are seven reasons to consider an Oregon ranch for sale.
1. Diversity of fishing environments
Oregon has a border on the Pacific Ocean and offers incredible steelhead and salmon fishing that you won’t find in Montana, Wyoming or Colorado. Oregon’s wide selection of rivers, lakes, and streams also deliver a variety of trout, bass, and carp to anglers’ lines. In some locations, Oregon fish are larger than those generally found in other western mountain states and numbers of anglers in an area can be far fewer than those encountered in other states.
2. Access to big game hunting.
Oregon Ranch Broker, Rob Ezell, reluctantly crawled from beneath the down quilt looking to find a pair of something to put on - his feet already cold from touching the wood floor which feels more like an ice rink. After the coffee pot is warm, three cups of delicious brew chased by a smoothie will tide him over until lunch.
This is a great time of year to be on the Gutierrez Cattle Ranch in Oregon. With the days still warm and sunny and the nights cooling off, the rancher's seasons are in transition. One of the most telling signs is the sound of bull elk bugling across the hills, more worried about that pretty cow elk on the other side of the meadow than the cowboy on his horse bringing the cattle home from the high country. There is still fall work to be done on the ranch but for most of the folks in this part of Oregon, this type of work is not a four letter word.
Last Saturday night, while fishing a beautiful Central Oregon ranch for catfish, my oldest daughter, Emma, (far left in photo) hooked the 7 lb carp in this picture. I wanted to let everyone know that not all trophy ranch brokers are just about fly fishing and chasing trout, steelhead, and exotic species of fish. She was using the traditional worm fly and was able to land this fish on 4 lb test. Many ranch and farm properties have irrigation ponds which are great places to take young kids so they are catching and not just fishing.
