While our guides will teach you everything you need to know about the land for your hunt, it is always helpful to be prepared, so here’s a little information about whitetail deer hunting:


About Whitetail Deer

 Whitetail deer are native to Canada, the United States, Mexico, and South America as far south as Peru. The population of deer here in the Golden Triangle of Texas is plentiful, so they are a popular species for hunters. Mature whitetail bucks in South Texas have larger antlers and tend to weigh above average, reaching about 230 pounds, while mature does are closer to 120 lbs.

Deer tend to be wary of humans, which is why hunters have to take care to be quiet and control their scent. When they’re frightened, they can run as fast as 45 miles and hour and jump almost nine feet, allowing them to escape quickly, so you may only have one chance to take a shot at any given instance.
