Texas Deer Hunting Ranches
Central Texas Ranch Info
Our Winters ranch in Central Texas is approximately 2,800 acres. We have several miles of running creek throughout the property, along with ponds and active water wells. Along with over 800 acres of wheat fields and food plots, there is an abundance of bedding areas, food, and water. Wild hogs are in mass abundance here and are included in our Texas deer hunts at no extra cost. Accommodations are available in town about 10 minutes from the property, and there are several restaurants to choose from as well.
Whitetail Management Strategy
We follow a simple strategy to fulfill our Whitetail management goals. Don’t shoot young deer, and provide the best habitat possible. This ranch produces larger than average deer because of it’s long-term management systems, and it will continue to do so for years to come.
Food plots, protein, sweet feed, corn, mineral blocks, and cattle cubes are all used throughout specific times of year at both ranches to maximize the potential of our Texas deer hunting.
Deer Hunting Method
Prone Outfitters Whitetail deer hunts are all still-hunts. To control the amount of pressure throughout the season, we do not allow spot and stalk. While we do use the blind/feeder method, mature Whitetail bucks aren’t stupid.
When we feel it necessary, we will stray from the blinds and begin using home-made brush blinds, tripods, and pop-up blinds. If we can get you on a deer from a comfortable blind, that’s great! But we will sacrifice comfort for a higher chance at your success any day of the week!
A “semi-guided” hunt means your guide will be at the ranch to drop you off at your blind, pick you up, help skin/quarter game, and answer any questions throughout your stay. While we're not physically there with you, rest assured we've spent plenty of time preparing your designated hunting area.
what time of year should you
Hunt Deer in Texas?
Almost everyone wants to hunt Texas Whitetail in the rut, and while it is a fantastic time to be in the field, it is not necessarily the BEST time of year for everything.
In our opinion, the pre-rut is the easiest time to deer hunt in Texas. Because they are comfortable, their patterns are much easier to follow and the amount of time you have to shoot is typically longer as well.
On the other hand, once the rut hits you’re going to see a ton of deer! Which deer you see will be up to the Deer Gods, as they’ll be running around everywhere with their brains in the gutter. If a buck is on a hot doe, he may only show himself for a few seconds. If you’re playing thumbsies with yourself instead of paying attention, we’ll both have a rough week.
Late season, or the post-rut, is a similar combination of both. While we do have a second rut, it’s often short and deer are back to a fairly consistent schedule. By this time of year deer are more alert, and hunting blinds becomes less and less common. This is when pop-ups and home-made ground blinds become most useful, as long as the weather permits.
when should you book your
Texas Deer Hunt?
We recommend booking your Texas Deer hunt a year in advance due to limited availability. It may seem like a lot of ground, but we harvest very few deer off this ranch to ensure continued stability.
