Texas Deer Hunting
Texas is probably best known for its incredible Whitetail Deer Hunting with a population of over 4 million animals, diverse habitat and huge trophies; look no further than All Seasons Guide Service for Texas Hunting.
Our diverse terrain of over 65,000 acres of privately owned and managed land offer some amazing Texas Whitetail hunting opportunities. These properties are located from the South Texas Brush Country to the Hill Country of Texas. We offer hunts on low fenced ranches of over 30,000 acres to completely high fenced ranches under intense feeding and genetic programs that can produce incredible Texas Whitetails. Our hunting success at close to 99% is a result of hunting properties that are strictly managed and never over hunted. We never overbook or take more trophies than a property can support and we keep our hunting groups small. Our properties get better every year with proper management and selective harvest.
It is not possible to list every property we hunt or to go in to enough detail to describe all on our web-site, few are detailed below: if you have any questions or would like to hear about additional property not listed please give us a call at (361) 920-2825. The properties listed are good representatives of what to expect from ASGS.
The E4 Ranch consists of 3,000 low fenced acres of prime Whitetail hunting paradise, located near the small town of McFaddin, about 20 miles south of Victoria, Texas. This South Texas Ranch has a variety of terrain, from thick brush covered draws, to rolling terrain covered with Mesquite and Live Oak trees; it provides a well-balanced wildlife habitat. A hunter has the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife, as this property is home to an incredible amount of Whitetail Deer, Rio Grande Turkeys, feral Hogs, and great Dove Hunting.
The E4 Ranch has been expertly managed to produce Trophy Whitetail Deer with the guidance of a State appointed Wildlife Biologist. It operates under Level 3 Managed Land Deer Permits issued by the Texas Parks and Wildlife. These MLD Permits allow for an extended Deer Season, which usually starts the first part of October and runs through February. This allows extra time to remove the inferior genetics from the herds, and the ability to be very selective of the deer harvested.
Other management practices include year round supplement feeding, planting of food plots, subscribed vegetation burns, aerial brush control, and rotation of domestic livestock grazing. This ranch has been managed and groomed to create a haven for wildlife.
The main ranch house at the E4 Ranch has been transformed with the sole purpose of entertaining our guest. The 4 Bedroom 2 Bath House sleeps 9 and with the adjacent bunk house we can accommodate 8 more guest comfortably. Before and after dinner we have two large outside fire pits at the main house and large outside porches that offer plenty of room to unwind and talk about the day’s events. No one wants to miss their favorite team play so for those must see football games we have satellite television. Delicious home cooked meals are served at E4 including our famous mesquite grilled rib eye steaks and baby back ribs; we guarantee no loss of weight on this trip. For additional entertainment we have a regulation lighted skeet range which is great for sharpening shooting skills or just friendly competition.
The E4 is home to an incredible amount of whitetail deer, and it’s common to see 10-15 bucks a day usually many more. The ranch consistently produces trophy class bucks that gross score 130-150 B&C. Once you have harvested your buck you may continue your hunt by taking a doe and as many hogs as you would like to take home. Most of the hunting is done from comfortable tower blinds.
All hunts are full service with meals, lodging and guided 1 on 1.

Willacy County Ranch
A 30,000 acre, low fenced wildlife sanctuary, is the only way to describe this ranch near Ramondville, Texas. This truly unbelievable piece of property is located on the coastal plains of South Texas and is home to an abundant amount of Free Roaming Whitetail Deer, Nilgai Antelope, and Rio Grande Turkeys. We have been conducting our Nilgai Hunts here since 1998 but it was not until 2008 that we were given permission to harvest a limited number of Trophy Whitetail Bucks.
There are many reasons this hunt is so unique and special. The one that is most apparent is the Whitetail Deer on this ranch have virtually not been hunted in over 100 years. You can actually see how Whitetails have evolved from human pressure since of the turn century, and how Native Americans hunted them with such primitive weapons. The other unique feature is there are no permanent blinds or feeders on the ranch, pretty unique for Texas.
Our rifle hunts are conducted Safari Style out of high racked trucks. Rattling bucks in during early December is a very effective method and on exceptional days 50 or more bucks can be rattled in. To say this hunt is exciting is an understatement. If you are tired of Hunting Whitetail Deer out of a stand: get out Of the Box this hunt is as good as it gets.
