CA Bull Elk Ranch is not your ordinary farm or ranch! We are a working elk ranch We also have some of the usual farm animals (chickens, geese, and of course the family dogs & cats). CA Bull Elk Ranch is 800 acres located in beautiful Richfield ID.

CA Bull Elk Ranch began as a dream. Calvin & I (Gail) both came from farming and ranching backgrounds and have always wanted a ranch of our own. Of course we didn’t want just an ordinary ranch we wanted an ELK ranch. After many years of working toward that goal We purchased 160 acres that was in need of much tender loving care. Rolling up our sleeves, and with the help of our two sons (and a great bunch of friends), we began making the transformation. The ranch began in 2002 with only 20 bred cows and one good bull. This became known as CA Bull Elk Ranch.

In 2007 we began hunting pheasants. In 2010 we added bobwhite quail and 2011 we added courtnix quail. The spring of 2012 we added chukar to the bird mix. I (Gail) am ranch owner/manager (which really means I is the hands on day to day feeder, waterer, fence builder, bookkeeper, salesperson, and all around help). Calvin worked on the road as an equipment operator to fund the ranch as it was getting started (it isn’t cheap to raise elk).
