Texas has the largest population of whitetail deer in the United States and is estimated at over 4.5 million. The Lone Star State is known for producing some of the largest trophy whitetail bucks in the country. Whitetail deer hunting is the heart and soul of Brinlee Ranch Hunts…we have been hunting this area for more than 25 years and have been offering quality guided and outfitted whitetail deer hunts since 1997. If you are looking for a great Texas whitetail deer hunt you have come to the right place. This is Texas deer hunting at its finest!
Our semi-guided whitetail deer hunts are conducted under low fence only on our 46,000 acre ranch located in Terrell County Texas. This free range whitetail hunting ranch produces trophy texas whitetail deer year after year. The ranch is courently and has been for 16 years working with Texas parks and Wildlifes leval 3 MLDP (Managed Lands Deer Permit) program. The Managed Land Deer Permit (MLDP) program allows landowners involved in a formal management program to have the state’s most flexible seasons and increased harvest opportunities. This program is incentive based and habitat focused.
We do not charge any kill, trophy or replacement fees of any kind. We have structured our packages to keep our hunts very affordable and simple. There are NO hidden fees. Over 70% of our hunters are repeat clients!
During the 2009-2010 Texas whitetail deer season our hunters once again experienced great success on free range whitetail bucks scoring anywhere from 110-150+ B&C. Many of our bigger bucks are passed over each year because of broken tines incurred during the intense Texas rut, saving themselves for yet another hunting season. Having a front row seat in a Texas deer blind while watching rutting whitetail bucks chasing hot does is truly something to experience! It is not uncommon for our hunters to see as many as 10-20 different whitetail bucks per day in addition to rio grande turkeys, javelinas and the occasional gray fox or bobcat.
