About the ranch

When on the lookout for hunting ranches in south Texas, this ranch is the premiere choice for exotic plains game, whitetail deer hunting, and wingshooting. Given its prime whitetail hunting location in the “Golden Triangle of Texas,” it distinguishes itself among Texas deer hunting ranches for its convenience and wide range of amenities. The ranch is located southwest of Uvalde, Texas, and it operates year-round (excluding major holidays). In addition to its function as a working Texas cattle ranch, its hunting concessions total over 30,000 acres in Maverick, Uvalde and Zavala counties. Over the years, the hunting operation has become nationally recognized for its trophy whitetail deer, exotic plains game, and wingshooting offerings.

The town of Uvalde, with a population of over 16,000, is remote enough for seclusion but only twenty minutes away from a private airport, county regional hospital, sporting goods suppliers, golf course, swimming, banks, restaurants, movie theaters, and taxidermy and other centers for processing game. The land abounds with trophy white-tailed deer, exotic plains game, doves, bobwhite and blue quail, Rio Grande turkeys, coyotes and bobcats. San Antonio International Airport is only ninety minutes away from the ranch. With first class accommodations, you can rest assured that your stay will be an experience different from any other South Texas hunting ranch. The staff is dedicated to going above and beyond for you to experience a Best-in-Class hunt. The lodge provides hunters with plenty of space, so you can easily arrange for a corporate outing or other large-scale events at the ranch.  Among Texas deer hunting ranches, it prides itself on the quality of every aspect of its operation: from the very lodgings you stay in to the enthusiastic guides who help you during your hunt.

Texas Whitetail Hunts

In Texas, whitetail hunts can be enjoyed not just by hunting enthusiasts but by outdoorsmen as well. Compared to other Texas whitetail hunting ranches, it provides more opportunities and first class accommodations that are sure to please, whether you are entertaining corporate clients or simply taking some days off for the experience.

Fact: Hunts take place over 25,000 acres in the “Golden Triangle Texas.” According to recent studies, throughout the entire state of Texas, over 70% of all typical and 45% of all non-typical Boone & Crockett whitetail entries come from a thirteen county area. This is known as the “Golden Triangle of Texas.” The pastures of the ranch feature game managed by professionals and are lightly hunted. Clients typically see an average of 20-40 bucks per day, including several that will get your attention! Consider this: the 2008 deer hunting season produced fifteen of the 200 bucks listed in the South Texas “Los Cazadores Big Buck Deer Contest.”

Throughout your hunt, you will enjoy fine Southwestern cuisine and wild game dishes, clean and comfortable accommodations, and your group will be accompanied by one of the most experienced and enthusiastic professional guides in Texas. There are a number of different packages available for you to enjoy for memorable Texas whitetail hunts. Those who visit will also will enjoy hunting for other species in the bush,

Texas-Style Bird Hunting

Doves over grain fields, wild bobwhite, blue quail, or Rio Grande gobblers…no matter your passion, our ranches offer thousands of acres of prime habitat in South Texas. If it’s dove hunting or any other game you’re interested in, we can accommodate it. From September through May, there is rarely a week in Texas when bird hunting aficionados will ever run short of options. For corporate groups, fathers and sons, families or friends, there is no better way to spend a weekend in Texas, with bird hunting packages that provide prime locations for enthusiasts.

Package South Texas Dove Hunts

For the Dove wingshooter, the grainfields of milo, corn, sesame, and sunflower that surround the Pearsall, Dilley, Hondo and Uvalde areas hold the largest concentrations of Whitewing and Mourning Doves found in North America (excluding Mexico). In our little slice of South Texas, dove hunting becomes an unforgettable experience, with brush providing great nesting cover, and water ponds scattered throughout that provide world class pond shoots. If you’re ever in Texas, this bird hunting package just might be that challenge you’re looking for.

We have had days of over 30 coveys! Quail hunts include hunting over bird dog pointers, meals, lodging, guide, cold beverages, birds processed and packaged.
