There are deer in the surrounding mountains. During recent years more than one third of the deer harvest in Nevada occurred in Elko County. There are also antelope and elk. The Pilot mountains are one of Nevada’s elk ranges and elk have become numerous in recent years. (Much of the land that Tecoma Valley Land Company has for sale is located at the foot of the Pilot Range). Game Birds are found in the area and some fishing is available by prior arrangement with land owners at small reservoirs located north of Tecoma Valley.
