Hunting South Texas

Hunting at the ranch is done from South Texas style, top-driven, "high rack" trucks.  A typical day of hunting may also involve hunting in elevated blinds near feeders, rattling in bucks during the rut, spot and stalk, as well as occassionally hunting from ground blinds or brush blind set-ups. 

The style of hunting can be directed by the hunter in consultation with the guide.  All of our guides are experienced brush country deer hunters, a few of whom have hunted these ranches continuously now for over 20 years.  Our experience, and our knowledge of the area we hunt in, allow us to continue building on a near 100% shot opportunity success rate.  

Morning and afternoon hunts are the norm.  After breakfast hunters will ride with their guide on one of our high rack trucks to a hunting area, typically situated on one of the many senderos (long ranch roads).  Our guides are passionate about deer hunting, and will have already spent time tracking the movement of mature trophy deer in several parts of the ranch before your arrival. 

All of our hunting is low fenced and fair chase, so we do not guarantee a Boone & Crockett score for the deer you will harvest.  But our experienced guides are sure to put you on an impressive, mature South Texas buck, and even more importantly, we will help you create lasting memories from a truly thrilling hunt.  We want you to enjoy your South Texas brush country hunting experience, and we take great pride in making sure that you do! 



Other Game Animals

Between the morning and afternoon deer hunts, or after you take your trophy deer, hunters can arrange to hunt the variety of other native game that call the Briscoe Gates ranches home.   It is not uncommon to see javelinas along the senderos.    Also known as "collared peccaries," javelinas are a unique game animal native to South Texas, and present a challenging and exhilarating spot and stalk hunt on foot with either a bow or a rifle/handgun.  Also seen quite often on the ranch are quail, dove, wild hogs, and various predators such as coyotes, bobcats and badgers.
