Located in Zavala County, The Vaughn Whitetail Ranch is 95% South Texas brush, providing a natural habitat for our Whitetail deer herd. This location known as “The Golden Triangle” is a unique combination of high protein vegetation grown in red sandy loam soils. These two ingredients produce an incredible variety of forage for all wildlife, but especially big trophy bucks.
We have combined proven deer management practices and abundant water resources, with genetics from some of South Texas’ top breeders to build on our “Golden Triangle” DNA. The results are incredible and getting better with each passing season, due to our limited harvest. On any given hunt you will see 10-15 Whitetails of all ages and sizes, along with a variety of wildlife from Javelinas, Turkey, Quail, Coyotes, Bobcats, even an occasional Badger.
The Vaughn Whitetail Ranch has numerous ponds stocked with Florida Hybrid Black Bass and Yellow Catfish, so you can either relax between hunts or take in some fishing.
Our Waterfowl and Bird population is impressive due to the abundant water and supplemental feeding programs. Don’t forget you camera!
Our Ranch House and Hunter’s Lodge is modest in size, but professionally appointed to offer first class comfort and convenience to each limited group of hunters. You’ll find our hunting blinds, equipment, and buildings to be meticulously maintained to ensure a quality hunting experience. There is excellent cellular phone service, satellite TV, and a wood burning fireplace in the Hunter’s Lodge. Our Hilltop Pavilion offers a great gathering point to share a drink and the stories of that day’s hunt.
