Carmen Mountain Whitetail and Crooki Mule Deer

Since 1972

This has been called "The Jewel of Old Mexico Hunting Lodges" and "Unexpected luxury in the mountains for the most discriminating of hunters."

The hunting operations cover 100,000 acres. The sprawling ranch is located in the mountains 100 miles South West of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, and in line with the famed Big Bend National Park area of West Texas. In November of 1995, we reopened this beautiful ranch for the first hunting season since noted flyer Charles Lindbergh hunted the ranch in 1928.

Lodging is offered in a fabulous, huge 7,000 sq. ft. adobe mansion with the most authentic southwest atmosphere. This magnificent lodge will host only 4 hunters at a time, and the owner will be there on the premises at all times to personally assure you the finest possible hunt.

Hunting Gear and Important Information

The elevation of the ranch is 4,900 feet and temperatures are normally from the high 30's to high 70's, but changing weather patterns often cause temperature ranges from as low as 20’s to as high as 80’s.

Ground transportation from the Eagle Pass, Texas to the ranch is included in the hunting package fee.  We require arrival at the border a day early, in order to depart early in the morning and arrive at the ranch at lunch time.

As an option we offer air service in a single engine aircraft to the ranch, we strongly recommend that hunters travel as light as possible. Only one deer rifle with a soft case is allowed and an extra 35 lbs. of clothing and gear. Maximum two hunters per trip, see air fare on our list price.

We will take care of and provide all necessary paperwork needed to hunt in Mexico. Our operation there are licensed and registered Mexico outfitters. Our guarantee to you is a hassle free hunt in Mexico along with easy border crossing.
