HOW WE HUNT

Safety and fun is the name of the game.  All of our hunts provide one on one attention, with a seasoned ranch employee guide helping you get the best hunting experience possible.

Most hunts are done by stalking deer through the brush using a variety of techniques, such as rattling antlers or sitting on senderos.

Your hunt is a "wild hunt", meaning the deer you see roam throughout large pastures with little to no contact with humans.  We do not feed protein and avoid using deer feeders entirely.  Deer are raised on 100% natural forage within their natural habitat.  We want your hunt to be a unique and special experience that lives up to the spirit of true hunting.

Want to enjoy your harvest at the end of the day? Not a problem. Just let us know, and we will prepare your game for lunch or dinner.

A TROPHY BUCK

A trophy buck is considered to be mature (5.5+ years of age) with 140 Boone and Crocket points or more.  Bucks with more than 172 Boone and Crocket points have a higher price range (please inquire).

A MANAGEMENT BUCK

A management buck is considered to be mature (4.5+ years of age) with 140 Boone and Crocket points or less.  Any split tine or drop tine bucks are not considered Management Bucks.

THE LODGE

McAllen Ranch's El Indio Lodge provides luxury in the South Texas brush country.  Filled with multiple spacious rooms, El Indio lodge can accommodate up to 10 hunters at one time. The lodge is complete with a swimming pool and a bass fishing pond within walking distance from the front door.  After your hunt, lie back and relax while we prepare your meal, serving authentic South Texas cuisine.

NOT A HUNTER OR SHOOTER?

Not a problem!  McAllen Ranch offers many other activities.  Our guests can also enjoy horseback riding, birding, and historical sight seeing.  Or simply enjoy the peace and serenity of the brush country and relax amid the luxury amenities of El Indio Lodge.

OUR PHILOSOPHY:

The wildlife on McAllen Ranch is a very precious resource.  We hunt very conservatively, and pay close attention to wildlife health and growth throughout the year. Preserving nature and our wildlife is not only our duty as landowners, but it also ensures there will be a ranching business for future generations.
