Rates

All of our whitetail, exotic deer and sheep are free roaming animals. These animals were born and raised in the wild. Since our ranch encompasses 10,500 acres, under game fence, our deer have the ability to establish territories as well as travel long distances. None of our deer are pen raised or hunted in small sections. In other words, this hunt is in the true sense of the word, “fair chase.”

Our hunting guides have years of hunting experience in Texas and know the ranch very well. In advance of your scheduled hunting date, we scout in order to give you the best opportunity to harvest your animal. However, we must stress that we cannot control Mother Nature or any other conditions that might impede your success. The West Kerr Ranch offers you superb deer habitat, an adequate population of whitetail & exotic species to hunt, a knowledgeable guide, and the opportunity to harvest a trophy animal.

Whitetail Hunts


West Division Over a decade, we've been enhancing our management program by offering free choice supplement feeding on the West Division of the ranch. Protein is very important for overall body growth and required for successful growth, antler development, and reproduction. These bucks will produce heavier mass, longer tine length and wider spreads than average Hill Country bucks. We've seen huge improvements in the overall quality of the deer on 3,500 acres. This particular package offer hunters the opportunity to harvest a super charged whitetail buck. This hunt is guided on the West Division. You are welcome to select any mature buck of your choosing as long as the deer is 6.5 years or older.

Management Buck Hunt:

The West Kerr Ranch participates in a selective culling program in order to remove genetic inferiorities or abnormalities from our buck herd. Because we have had great success with this program, we can only book a handful of these type hunts each year. Your guide will sit in the blind with you in order to determine which buck qualifies as a management deer, but the following criteria serve as guidelines:

  • 1. A mature buck with six, seven or eight points.
  • 2. A buck that is missing one or both eye guards.
  • 3. The buck must meet at least one of the above factors.

The management buck is a mountable deer that would make a good first buck for adult or child alike.

Exotic Hunting

Because each exotic species behaves differently in the wild, we offer a number of hunting methods. We have “blinds or stands” with automatic feeders nearby. Depending on weather and habitat conditions at the time of your hunt, you may be hunting from these locations. The second style of hunting is “safari”. Exotics sometimes run in herds, and with much territory to cover, vehicles are often used to locate the animals. The third style of hunt is known as “spot and stalk.” Once the herd is located, your guide may advise a short hike in order to successfully harvest your trophy. He or she may also incorporate any combination of these hunting styles, always keeping your success and safety foremost in our mind. The only hunting method used during whitetail season is blind hunting. We don’t safari style or spot & stalk during the months of October, November & December.

Exotics can be hunted year around. They have no specific season as specified by the State of Texas. However, certain species are better hunted in certain months of the year. Our booking agent will suggest the optimum time to hunt each type of exotic.

Rio Grande Turkey Hunts

Our Turkey Hunt is semi-guided, allowing each hunter the opportunity to harvest two mature gobblers. We don’t allow the harvest of Jakes. The hunt will begin at noon and end at noon. Each hunter will be assigned a large amount of acreage to hunt, allowing everyone to move around freely. We have numerous roosts located throughout the ranch. Upon arrival, we will get you settled in and then head out for the evening hunt. Your guide will drop you off a couple hundred yards from the roost and pick you up 30 minutes before sunset.

Turkeys have the same basic habitat requirements as other wildlife species in that they require food, cover, and water. We provide food the entire fall and continue to feed milo and corn during the spring. There are water tanks located throughout the ranch. If calling becomes discouraging, you are welcome to set up a pop-up-blind or build a small brush blind near a feeder or water tank.

Disturbances such as increased human encroachment or hunting in the roost sites can cause turkeys to abandon the site, so we don’t allow turkeys to be shot of the roost. We only allow shot gun or bows to be used; sorry, no rifles. Lodging is provided on the ranch where you can cook your own meals. The climate can be warm during the spring, so we suggest bringing some kind of snake protection. We tend to have a high success rate on our turkey hunts, but, of course, each year can vary.
