On the brushlands of South Texas, more and more ranches are opening their gates to hunters. Whatever your game of preference, whatever your weapon of choice, you can find specialized hunting services here. Guide services, comfortable lodging, family and group hunts—there’s much more than just a deer lease! Vaughn Whitetail Ranch close to Batesville boasts a staff geared to personalize each party’s needs and abilities. Circle T Hunting Ranch near Carizzo Springs offers a father-son or father-daughter special. Your child will be able to take a spike, doe (when available), and a hog during a three-day/two-night package. Y Bar Ranch west of Tilden is a family-owned-and-operated working cattle ranch. Hunts are carried out as they used to be—no game fences, so all hunting is fair chase.
