  1. This year was my second ( successful)hunt with Carol and Donnie on this magnificent ranch. Wonderful hospitality and attention to detail. This year my wife came with me to photograph the animals and scenery. After getting our elk the first day, Jessie spent the next day with us exploring the entire, extensive ranch so Natasha could get great photos. Clearly going above and beyond!
    I’m already looking forward to next year.

    I have made a lot of great memories through the years at Red Canyon Ranch! Most of all are the friends I have made in Carol, Donnie, Robert and Jessie! Outstanding ranch to hunt great food and lodge. Once again thank you for a great time and a great bull. Feel free to call me at 903-987-5231 or email

  3. Tim Holley

    Our stay and hunt here at Red Canyon ranch was wonderful. When you arrive you feel like family. We made memories of a life time during our stay and the hunt words do not express the trill we experianced during my husbands hunt. Accomadations are out of this world.

  4. Darrell Blackstone

    My first time to really hunt elk and what a time, the best of guides, the best of lodge, and the staff and owners are just like family. I was able to take my first bull ever, and promise it was a thrill of lifetime. I will be back and look forward to the trip again.

  5. George Moore

    The best place in the West to hunt trophy elk be spoiled by super guides and stay in a 5 star lodge. This is my 10th year in I have taken my 10th bull with Donnie and Carol Ansley and guided by Robert Ansley. If you want the trip of lifetime this is the place. None better and more game than you will ever imagine. Bulls up to over 400″ and plenty of bulls in the 300′ plus range. I’ll be back next year and the year after.

  6. Mike Tucker

    After 8 years, 6 bulls and 3 antelope it just keeps getting better! Carol and Donnie are the best host and friends you could ask for. The food is real home cooking and the lodge is second to none! Robert put me on a great antelope and Jesse continued my hunt and a 395″ bull. Great job guys. Once again thanks!!! Feel free to call me. 903-987-5231

    After Joe, Daniel and Freddie completed their cow elk hunts they were off to track down some Aoudad. With the wind perfect, set up perfect they all three shot at the same time each taking an animal. If you have ever hunted these animals you understand what a remarkable feat this was. Thank you to a great group from Mississippi!

  9. Freddie Joseph

    I had an unbelievable experience at Red Canyon Ranch. The whole staff was first class and my party can’t wait to make another trip. We had an awesome trip that made memories for a lifetime. I would recommend this hunting experience to anyone that enjoys great food, hospitality, and hunting

  10. Joe Force

    The Red Canyon Ranch is an experience I will never forget. The lodge, food and staff are incredible. The quality of hunting is fantastic and our whole party was extremely pleased. We made memories that we will never forget and are looking forward to coming back.

    I have hunted in many places all over the country over many years. And I can honestly say that my Red Canyon Ranch hunt is at the top of the list. The quality of the hunt the game, the accommodations, the guides, and most especially Carol and Donnie Ansley are top notch. I harvested an Elk of a lifetime and had one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Thanks so much Carol and Donnie. Bo Gossett

  16. Frank Ashby

    Wonderfull facility, staff, and fellowship. This is NOT a “Canned Hunt” and you will need to be in great shape to fulfill your hunt of a lifetime, but at the end of the hunt, you’ll be ecstatic about you and the guides success and cherish each moment at Red Canyon Ranch!

  17. Dave Williamson

    My first real elk hunt. Unbelievable! The hospitality, the guides, the facilities, the total experience completely exceeded my expectations. This is the real deal. For those of you that think this will be an easy hunt, you’re going to be disappointed. The land and animals here are wild and perfect for the ultimate experience. Be prepared to hunt! I could not be more excited that this was my first, and probably only elk hunt of my life. I’d be happy to share my experience with you via email or phone. or cell 361 537-7819.

  18. Fred Pierson

    Carol – we had a great time! You certainly gave out group 5 star service! And the size of the elk on your ranch are “huge”! The first evening scouting, we saw more 400 class bulls than bulls under 400″. It sure was a great experience for us. We truely feel like part of your extended family. Thanks for a great hunt! Fred

  19. Bobby Masterson

    Carol and Don, thank you for a great elk hunt at Red Canyon Ranch. I had a great time. Your hospitality and the guide service was outstanding. Thank you again.

  20. David Thorfinnson

    I just finished a fantastic hunt with great friends. I cannot comment enough about the world class accomodations and an excellant hunting experience. Our guide was world class and his help did not end with my harvest. The handling and processing my elk was beyond expectations. After the day of hunting I was greeted with fantastic meals and a lodge atmosphere that would rival any 5 star resort. The lodge is as nice a place can be and the people are even nicer. I would recommend Red Canyon Ranch to everyone if you want to experience the best Elk hunt possible. You can fell free to contact me for additional comments at

    Red Canyon Ranch has provided excellent Elk hunts for our family and hunting friends year after year. Carol and Donnie go out of their way to treat you like family. Robert and Jessie have worked very hard to get me within bow range of trophy bulls. The Red canyon elks are exceptionally healthy and the terrain is beautiful while chasing these majestic animals. One the hunt is over, Miss Carol makes sure you have five star meals. Trophy bulls and world class accommodations!!

  22. Paul Winborn

    As a retired pharmacist I always look forward to hunting season and coming back to Red Canyon Ranch to elk hunt. Donnie, Carol, Robert and Jesse make this fall event a pleasure. Food is great, rooms very nice, five star for the total event. This is my fourth year to travel from NW Arkansas and I hope to return in 2017. Nice to have good friends in NM the elk hunt is a bonus for an ole man like me. Jesse makes it happen. Great people and good times.
