Whitetail Management Strategy


We follow a simple strategy to fulfill our Whitetail management goals. Meat hunts and Management hunts before the rut, and trophy hunts during and after the rut.  (Usually somewhere between November 18 – December 7.) Doing so will keep management bucks from breeding, allow our trophy bucks to breed, and avoid hunters killing females bred by those deer.

**The above rules are strictly enforced at the Stamford Ranch, while the Fort Mckavett ranch is a little more lenient due to its massive size and population.**

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 your comfort ability for a higher chance at success any day of the week!

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 shit load 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. While we will still have spots available, scheduling well in advance ensures your preferred hunt dates. Because of property size, Whitetail hunts at the Stamford ranch are less abundant and go much faster.
