I have hunted on a RFW tag about 5 years ago. I hunted on the a ranch north of Craig and was VERYdisappointed to say the least. I have only the one experience with RFW, but I will never waste anymore points on one of those tags. We were allowed on the ranch to hunt after all the guided hunts were over and all the elk were pushed off the ranch and onto the NF. Our hunting started the same day as one of the regular seasons for elk on the NF. Hunted hard for 2 days and never saw an elk. On the 3rd day I shot a 5x5 and my hunting pard got a cow. Found out later that out of the 15 elk hunters on the ranch we were the only ones to get any animals. There were also about 20 RFW deer hunters on the ranch at the same time. IMHO it was a complete waste of 8 points!
I can't answer anything about other RFW ranches and how they run the program, but think hard about it. If you are able to get names of other hunters who have hunted on this ranch, get them and find out their experience.
