Pheasant hunting with the Korkow FamilyA RANCH OPPORTUNITY
Message regarding COVID-19
August 17,2020 – The COVID-19 virus makes all of us tighten the spur straps and buckle up. Here at the Korkow Ranch, we take our responsibility seriously and will be striving to protect all our hunting guests and our Families during this upcoming season. We don’t know at this point all the safety measures we will have in place—-but we are working to ensure your safety while at the Ranch. As the Fall progresses, I will add to this section on our Home Page.
See you this Fall during Hunting!

Buying the Ranch
In the late 20’s our father and his family moved to this area – purchased a part of the place in the early 30’s – lost it to taxes in the mid 30’s and our father started buying it back in the late 30’s. Since then, the following pieces have been added; Minnie Nelson ranch, Gould pasture, Nye pasture, Curtis place and the Graf Ranch
