Why Hunt with Riata?

Todd Hughes, 189BC

Knowledge, knowledge, knowledge. Location, location, location.

We are an outfitter for Whitetail, Mule Deer and wingshooting inTexas and an accredited booking agent for all other hunts in North America and Internationally. In the 2012 year we facilitated over 150 Whitetail buck guided package hunts, and over 150 Mule Deer guided package hunts on several million acres. Additionally, we facilitated over 200 clients for other species of big game and wingshooting throughout North America and 11 other countries abroad.

Our team of professional hunters and consultants have over 100 years combined experience in commercial hunting.


South Texas, or the "wild horse desert" 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.

The "Golden Triangle" of Texas as it has been coined was made up of original Spanish land grants in the early 1800's primarily for cattle production.  Mexican cowboys or "Vaqueros" drove cattle from south Texas north to Fort Worth and the Kansas railhead to be shipped to markets in the northeast.  Later it became famous for it's riches in oil and gas production.  Today, it is famous for hunting.

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.

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 record book mule deer.

These deer have not been pressured.  Recently, muleys exceeding 220BC and weighing over 300 pounds have been harvested - most unpublicized.  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 100,000 acres where the annual mule deer quota may not exceed 10 animals.  The area can resemble Alberta, Canada.

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.

These hunts are in the greatest demand and booking early is recommended. Be among the select few to experience this once in a lifetime, unique opportunity. Call us for rates at (512) 261-2400.


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.

The ranches are big and have not been subdivided.  They are enormous and can exceed 20,000 acres on one ranch.  This is grassland prairie with heavy, brushy draws and timber river bottoms lined with winter wheat fields resembling Alberta, Canada.

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.

This is a hunt which can include staying in moderate ranch cabins.  The food is home cooked and unique to the North Texas culture.  In some cases, the client may be able to combine his whitetail hunt with a trophy mule deer in applicable areas.

Booking Agency & Outfitter


Riata Worldwide Hunting & Fishing, LLC. is dedicated to providing our clients the most complete, accurate, and up to date hunting reports each month.

Each month we will include client successes, specials, updates, cancellation hunts, and promotions. We will have a limited number of joint marketing television opportunities each year that can include our members participation. These will be hunting shows  where our clients are the featured hunters.

We do not sell our hunts based on price. We sell them on quality of experience. We offer hunts with ranches that have trophy quality wildlife, excellent food, lodging and staff at reasonable market based prices. We will have monthly  "auction hunts" where members may bid on specific hunts that are a result of client cancellations, landowner partner specials, and agreements we make with ranches that are far below market pricing due to over-inventory. Some ranches may have a great product, but are opening up their hunting for the first time to the public and are offering excellent  pricing. These "auction hunts" will be very limited on a "highest bidder/immediate deposit" basis.

Two things that set Riata apart from it's competition:  

  1. We listen to our clients needs, wants and dreams. You talk- we listen.
  2. Our knowledge, plain and simple. With over 50 years combined experience in the brush country of Texas and hunting throughout the U.S. we offer you everything we have learned about the wildlife, destinations, lodges, outfitters, and client successes and failures along the way.

Over the last 25 years some of our staff has had access to over 500,000 Texas acres consisting of different ranches with all scopes of landscapes, ecology, wildlife, landowner and operator personalities. We offer Texas trophy whitetail, high volume dove hunts for corporations, Bobwhite quail over dogs, Rio Grande Turkey hunting in the spring, and the much sought after Texas Mule Deer.

Additionally, we have either booked, consulted with or personally hunted some of the top 10% outfitter destinations in the U.S. and abroad  including: North America, South and Central America, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Africa, and Australia.

Our portfolio of hunting destinations includes many of the top 10% of outfitters abroad featuring: Mule Deer, Antelope, Bear, Cougar, Wing shooting, Elk, Moose, Caribou, Sheep, Goat,  Whitetails, Couses Deer, Turkey, African Dangerous and Plains game.


We have over 100 years of combined experience in South Texas and Panhandle hunting, cattle  and horses.  We were raised here in the brush.  It's in our blood.  We offer high quality wildlife, excellent meals, clean comfortable lodging, and an experienced staff.

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.
