Your adventure begins with your arrival at 1 PM on check-in day. After a brief orientation, the action begins. You will be taken to areas of the ranch where our guides have located your game. You and your hunting party will be given additional instructions by your guide, and your spot and stalk hunting will commence.
You will be tracking your game in native pecan bottoms, ancient oak forests, and miles of
majestic mesquites. Much of your game will be hiding in our deep native grasslands. You must always be prepared, as it is common to get within 5-10 feet of a pack of hogs hiding in the grass. Many hunters have brought back stories of walking up on 10-20 hogs and being so startled, they never raised their gun!
After dinner at sundown, your guide will take you back into the interior of the ranch for a night of hair-raising action! Most nights are greeted by the sounds of howling coyotes from every possible direction. Bring your rifles, bring your pistols, and if all else fails, have your Bowie knife ready! During your night hunt, be prepared to be surrounded by big mean wild Texas hogs. The big boars only move under the cover of night. You will want to move your spotlights on the edge of the forests, as this is where the cats are prowling. Call them in, and take a trophy of a lifetime. They are always there, and they are always watching you! On a quiet, windless night,the forest is as loud with wild game as a busy city street. More than a few hunters have lost their nerve to hunt the wilds of our moonlit wilderness! The record this year for lost nerve at night is but a short 20 minutes.
Reveille is about an hour before sunrise. This will give you time for breakfast and time to trade stories of your previous night's adventure with your fellow hunters. By sunrise, you will be back in our game- laden fields tracking your game. Early mornings are greeted with the bugling of the elk, or the distant sounds of our trophy rams butting heads for dominance. During your morning adventure, you will encounter many species of trophy game, such as majestic axis and fallow deer, huge red stags, and graceful Texas blackbuck, just to name a few.
At this point, your hunt is only half-way through! If you think the first half of your hunt was awesome, wait until your second night! If you survived the first night, you may be ready for what awaits you down in the "badlands" !
For those that have survived up to the last morning, there is yet more to experience for those that want more. Ask your guide about " dead man's hunt " , and he will tell you the tale. For those that must leave, checkout is before 11 AM on the third day, but for those that can stay, the next adventure is just over the next ridge!
