Scott, Ruby and Crew

We arrived safely home to Soldotna last night. The roads were great until we got a few miles from home. We had clear skies all the way to Palmer. We saw a fox, caribou and a wolf between Delta and Glenallen.

Can’t thank you enough for such a great experience. The day we spent with you just went by too fast. We would have loved to ride around and enjoy your beautiful land, the Buffalo and Elk all day. We learned so much too. (Not only about Buffalo, but Sewing Applique as well. Thanks Ruby!) The fantastic lunch wasn’t expected, but very welcome. Thanks for helping us set up the meat processer and taxidermist. Thanks also for taking great pictures for us!

Looking forward to doing business with you again.

Dear Hollembaek Family: Ruby, Buckley, Russell, and Dave (master baker), Crystal and the grandkids:   My wife Claudia and I want to THANK EACH AND EVERYONE ONE OF YOU for all the help and assistance each of you provided us during our recent bison hunt at your ranch!!!!!! We had a REALLY, REALLY good time and throughly enjoyed our time with all of you!!!!! We learned a lot during our brief stay with you. Buckley, Russell and Dave are natural teachers and they each took the time to explain the hunt as well as answer all our questions. It was fun learning about the ranch and getting to know each of you. Claudia especially enjoyed the opportunity to meet and visit with you Ruby and the grandchildren!!!! We found your ranch SO very interesting and understand now, how much work is involved to keep it operational. You certainly have a first class operation and it’s evident you all work really hard to keep it that way. Your hospitality was fabulous and everyone worked so hard to help me get a buffalo. We still feel bad the boys had to take time off from work to help us on Monday. But we CERTAINLY appreciated everyone’s help and assistance and genuine desire to make our visit so enjoyable!!!!!  I want to Thank each of you for your help and assistance you each made in making my life long dream of getting a bison possible!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t ever remember having such a good time hunting as we had with you folks. THANK YOU EVER SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!

Take care Scott and Ruby, see ya in 2013 :)

I just want to say that this was a wonderful experience for me provided by Scott, Ruby, family and hands.  I have never killed an animal before and have started hunting with my husband at age 60. 

From sighting in my gun, to the final kill and on to the professional skinning process plus hanging of the meat, it was the best experience of a lifetime.

I never felt rushed or pushed and very secure when the time came to pull the trigger.  I do have a State of Alaska Wild Bison Permit and will now be able to go out again hunting with confidence after my experience on the Alaska Interior Game Ranch.

Thanks again to Scott, Ruby, Buckley, (who repaired my scope on my gun) Eric, Dave and even the grandkids who gave me moral support.  What an awesome experience.

My wife read a small article in the paper this morning and brought up your web site.  Nicely done I must say.  I see I pretty much get to your place, shoot the animal and then you all skin and quarte it.  My job is to kill it and bring it home to process it.  I am an archery hunter.  Last fall I hunted Africa, next month I am headed to Kansas.  I have shot several Animals and would like to know if you allow me to shoot a bison with my bow.  70# draw weight is what I use..........  I know it will hit a Blue wildebeast behind the front shoulder and come out through the hind quarter at 30 yards.  That animal went 75 yards......  Thanks for your time and from what I see it is cheaper for me to come to your ranch, harvest a meat animal than to go out to Afognak.

I had a trip planned to go to Prince of Wales but things fell through. What an experience it would be, see Alaska and harvest a buffalo at the same time! Well one day i'm sure it will happen. Great website and awesome pictures! Godd Luck, Richard Brooks

I would like to take my family to visit your place someday. We live above the arctic circle in Kotzebue. I am also interested in buying some of your processed meat. I see you are sold out of the ground meat for now. Please let me know what you may have available. Thank you for sharing. It looks like you have a wonderful place.

I imagine Tom was in his late sixties then. Do you have mounted buffalo heads for sale? We would like to get one. Would you know if someone is still operating Toms Inn. Woody

My Dad was the local Alaska State Trooper and I remember visiting one of my friends from school at the Hollembaek farm just down the road. It was interesting to run into your web site and rediscover friends from my very early childhood. Ken

Am a friend of your brother Ron. Saw your mosaic bison skull at his therapy facility and am very interested in having one. Couldn't find a price list on your website, as I am something of a computer idiot, and get lost in all the jargon. Would you please e-mail a price list? We plan a trip to Alaska next year and would love to visit your ranch.

Your website is very interesting. I think Rubies narrative about your Alaskan home and regular routine is very interesting. I raise both Angus cattle and bison on our family farm here in E.Tennessee. Since I was born in Colorado, I'm fortunate that I live near the Great Smoky Mountains here in Tennessee and western North Carolina. God bless your family and keep enjoying life. My wife and daughter and I have been to Hawaii twice and plan to go back next year. I can see why you and your husband enjoy it so much. Although I have never been to Alaska, maybe I'll make it there soon. Since my M.S. is in wildlife and fisheries, I know that if I ever got to Alaska, I probably wouldn't want to return to the lower 48 ! Doug Harned.3/25

Hey Scott & Ruby! What a great website! For aguy who doesn't keep in touch like he should, it was a real treat to catch up on what you guys have been up to. "A day in the life" is pretty informative. Scott wrote most that stuff didn't he? Yeah right. . . Good job Ruby. Didn't know about Russels accident. He was up at Tangles this fall and didn't say anything about it. He did tell me that the Sharptails are back and I really wanted to get up there before winter but. . . Next year for sure though. Scott, you should have come over this year, I closed the joint up in July and had it pretty much to ourselves. Got a lot of fishing and hunting in. Well anyway, I'm not even sure how I stumbled across your website but it was sure good to read about everything. Talk to you soon. Rich
