The ranch lies in this 9 county area. The ranch has been a consistent producer over the last 19 years of 140-180+ class free range deer and has been a consistent winner of the South Texas big buck contests multiple years, winning both typical and non-typical categories.

When looking for a quailty, free range trophy whitetail hunt, consider this:

  • Anybody with 100 acres can advertise a trophy whitetail hunt. You need thousands of acres to produce high-quality free range deer every year. We have it.
  • This is your hard-earned money and vacation. Don't blow it on a mistake while trying to save a couple thousand dollars, just to go home without what you came to Texas for. Travel time and cost, licenses, fuel, hotels, airlines, shipping meat and horns, etc. Pay a little more for a high quality experience on a ranch that produces 140-180+ class free range deer every year.

Please read below to see the facts of why you should book your hunt with us.

The Ranch

35,000 + acres, part of a 91,000 acre contiguous ranch. One of the largest contiguous ranches remaining in South Texas. Clients hunt approx. 35,000+ acres.

The ranch, located in the heart of the South Texas Brush Country, has been under an intensive management program for the last 20+ years. The management program, combined with excellent habitat, has made our ranch a sportsman’s paradise for whitetail deer and Quail. A large scale protein feeding program, selective culling, and habitat enhancement have resulted in some of the finest FREE RANGE whitetail and quail habitat in South Texas.

The lodge is nice 3 bedroom ranch house with beds and linens and pillows is provided. A cook is provided and all meals are prepared for our guests.

Our staff gives 100 percent to our hunters during their stay and while we don’t guarantee harvest of a trophy animal, we are proud of our high success rate. More importantly, we guarantee a great hunt and a memorable experience. We are hunting in brush country, where savannah like grass pastures, prickly pear cactus and mesquite trees stretch across low rolling sandy terrain.

The majority of whitetail on our trophy hunts harvested during the last 20+ seasons gross scored between 135-180 Boone & Crockett or better.

Our standard trophy hunt is Thursday noon-Sunday noon. We primarily hunt from stands, but if conditions permit, we also rattle, stalk, and still-hunt from on foot and from 4-wheel drive hunting vehicles.

All hunts are fully guided and the guide determines to the maturity of the deer. We define a mature trophy class buck as one that is 5.5 + years old or older.
