During the 2016-2017 Texas Whitetail Deer Hunting 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.
Any wounded game may or will be considered the shooter's animal. Total effort will be used to find wounded game, we provide trained tracking dogs to perform a thorough search to try and recover wounded game. Our dogs consist of our expert game tracker “Ringo” and his new sidekick “Tine” which will be available for use to recover any wounded game. Our dogs are part of the Brinlee Ranch Staff, which means they also work for tips. If game is shot at and presumed missed, a thorough search will be performed before hunting is resumed. If blood is drawn on a game animal, and all search efforts have been exhausted, and no animal has been retrieved, then it will be considered a kill.
Field dressing, quartering, and cold storage of game is included. Deer will be caped and horns packaged for return on plane. Hunter must furnish cooler. Taxidermy services are available. Our guides are experienced in proper caping techniques essential for high quality taxidermy. Guides will skin and quarter harvested game in their skinning shed. The skinning shed is a good place to congregate after hunts and congratulate hunters on their successes. Guides will handle all your game services such as field dressing, skinning, quartering and shoulder caping your deer. Our guides amaze hunters with their speed skinning skills to ensure maximum return on venison. If you are interested in high quality taxidermy work you may leave your trophies at the ranch to be picked up by our world class taxidermist.
Our Texas Land Management produces great results for Whitetail Deer Hunts, because the ranch is currently, and has been for 20 years, working with Texas Parks and Wildlifes level 3 MLDP (Managed Lands Deer Program). The MLDP 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. Brinlee Ranch Hunts has an intensive deer management program in place to insure that our whitetail deer obtain the highest amount of antler and body growth. By working in cooperation with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Technical Guidance Biologists we have developed a uniform deer age structure with an ideal 2:1 doe-to-buck ratio. With a density of around 1 deer per 12 acres, you can expect to see countless numbers of healthy mature whitetail bucks. This will ensure you of your best chance to get that trophy buck on your wall. We harvest only 1 whitetail buck per 650 acres, ensuring everyone an opportunity to harvest a mature whitetail buck year after year. Our number one goal is to make sure our West Texas deer hunts are an exciting, memorable, and successful experience for our clients. West Texas deer hunting is something to truly behold.
