Additional Information

Overview:

This Hill Country Ranch, near Brady, lies on 32,000 acres (that's over 50 square miles) of gentle rolling brush country.

Our history of Trophy Whitetail Bucks dates back to 1892 and the famed 78-point "Brady Buck", also called the "Benson Buck" by some. Our Whitetail Herd Management Program is designed to enhance these tremendous genetics for trophy racks.

Our mature Bucks average 17 and 18 inch spreads and field dress average 108 lbs. Our hunting program is designed for success. If we want to harvest 100 bucks we book 100 hunters. Our average success rate is 97%.

WE DO NOT OVER BOOK OR OVER HUNT

You must call after dark to catch us at home.  If you leave a message we can only return your calls after dark.  Sorry for the inconvenience, but there are not enough hours of daylight.

Each Guide has his own country. No one hunts in it but his hunters. He has 2 hunters per hunt. So he has to divide his time equally.  ALL Guides know their Country and know how BEST to hunt it. You will have a Quality hunt, and a memorable experience.

On ALL Hunts, Hunters arrive Friday afternoon, in time to use the gun range.  Hunters Hunt Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, and are allowed to stay till Tuesday morning.

Guides field dress, skin, and quarter all deer, placing the meat in clear plastic bags, and keeping them in a cooler kept at 34 degrees. Hunters must bring their own ice chest.

A guide is insulted if he receives less than $300 per Trophy Buck killed for the weekend hunt. Many times a guide will receive $400-$500 per Trophy Buck for a weekend hunt. If you feel your guide does not deserve a tip, take the issue up with Ranch Manger Forrest Armke.
