Texas Outfitting:
South Texas

Todd Hughes, 189BC

South Texas, or the "Golden Triangle" has been described by experts as one of the most diverse and rich wildlife ecosystems in the world. That's no surprise as South Texas ranks high in the Boone & Crockett Record Books for whitetail deer, is the #1 destination in the lower 48 for high volume dove hunting, and is the last place on Earth where wild quail still thrive in large numbers.

Much of south Texas has been broken up into smaller, high fenced ranches and of late, deer breeding operations and introduced whitetail genetics. However, millions of acres of south Texas remain a wild, untamed wilderness built up of a very large, private, open low fenced, free range ranchland.

Here at Riata Worldwide Hunting & Fishing, we specialize in open free range, fair chase hunting. We offer hunts in south Texas on over 500,000 private acres.

Get back to basics. Get back to pure, free range, fair chase hunting and wild bird wingshooting at affordable prices.  We offer knowledge, experience and results.

We believe there are 5 factors in a good quality Texas hunting experience:

  • Quality, abundant trophy class wildlife
  • Quality staff
  • Nice, comfortable, clean accommodations
  • Good food and drink

Mule Deer

The word is out on this new "honey hole" for trophy mule deer. Many North Texas counties formerly closed to mule deer hunting have recently been opened, some for the first time in history. This has created a unique opportunity for the discerning trophy hunter in search of 150-180 class book mule deer.

Antler spreads range 26"-33" and heavy mass is common with deep forks. The state record came from this sand hills region. The ranches are very large, many exceeding 10,000 acres where the annual mule deer quota may be minimal.

Hunting is conducted by patiently glassing large areas, including wheat fields and prairie grassland river and heavy timber breaks. "Spot & stalk" is the preferred method of harvest. Shots can be long. In some cases the client may be able to combine his hunt with a trophy whitetail in applicable areas.

Whitetails

The Panhandle of extreme North Texas has come on in recent years as the new "hotspot" for huge Kansas strain whitetails. These bruisers can easily exceed 265 pounds, rivaling Canadian whitetails without the extreme weather and international travle. Many Boone & Crockett bucks exceeding 200BC have been taken recently in the Red and Canadian River breaks - most unpublicized.

Hunting is conducted by patiently glassing large areas and using "spot & stalk" methods. Shots can be long. These deer are not pressured providing the trophy hunter a unique opportunity.
