Texas Deer Hunting
With over 2000 acres of diverse topography, deer hunting in Texas doesn’t get any better than at Squaw Mountain Ranch. Texas deer hunts can be exciting and with the trophy bucks at Squaw Mountain Ranch, hunters come from all over the world to hunt deer in Texas. From hills, to rocky slopes, to flat grasslands, the terrain is so varied that you will simply love the property. We have ponds and all sorts of different landscapes to make your hunt one of the best around. Your guided deer hunt can be on foot or we can drive to other parts of the property and then hike in. It is all up to you and what experience you are looking for.
Texas deer hunting is some of the best hunting in the world. With an average yearly temperature of 70 degrees F, whitetail deer thrive in the state. There are also less predators than in other states, helping the deer thrive in this environment. Our ranch prides itself in responsible wildlife management, so the deer hunted are healthy and vibrant. Our deer can range in size from 139 points to well over 350 points!
While hunting is something that can be learned and practices, you will find every hunter has their favorite techniques and tips. Here, we will go over a few deer hunting tips that will make hunting deer in Texas that much more fun.
- Deer have noses and can smell you. Don’t use perfumes or scented products the day of your hunt. Some hunters tell us that they prefer to smell “gamey” on the day of their hunt. Rest assured, after a long, fun day of deer hunting, you can clean up in our well-appointed cabins before meeting at the lodge for bragging, drinks and dinner!
- Deer have ears. They can hear you. When hunting deer in Texas, you should expect to sit quietly for periods of time. Bringing that friend who won’t be quiet could cost you your trophy buck! Choose your friends carefully for your trip.
- The big deer are smart. That’s why they are big. They have avoided being taken year over year. That makes hunting them even more challenging but rewarding. Knowing how to hunt is as important as how to shoot so hone up on your tracking and hunting skills.
