Texas deer hunt

I've been thinking about going to Texas this year on a deer hunt and have been looking at a few guided hunts. So far I've looked seriously at Vinson Ranches and Jason Stillwell's Adventure Outdoors. Does anyone have any experience with either or have suggestions on other places to look into?

I'd also considered going on a turkey hunt this spring as well. So if I could work out a deal if I go on both hunts that would be great as well.

Thanks in advance.

Texas deer hunt

Are you looking at any part of the state in particular? Vinson Ranches is in North Central Texas just west of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. As far as big bucks go that is probably the #2 area in the state and there are a lot of huge deer taken there. You probably get the best chance at a big buck for a somewhat reasonable price in this part of the state.

South Texas is probably the most famous area in the state and country for that matter for producing huge bucks. However, if you're going after a big buck on a good ranch down there you have to be ready to fork out a lot of cash. You can get a management hunt on some of these ranches and still have a shot at getting a 140" deer and experiencing a South Texas deer hunt.

The Central Texas Hill Country has the largest population in the state and the prettiest scenery but the odds of getting a real huge deer aren't that high.

I guess it kind of depends on what kind of deer/hunt you're looking for, what your budget is etc.

I didn't have any luck getting any ranches in Texas to call or email me back so I booked a mule deer and elk hunt in NM instead.

Good luck! That sounds like a lot more fun anyway.
