JAG Ranch offers hunting for trophy and management whitetail deer three day hunts in South Texas , in County, Texas. We are located approximately 12 miles north of Beeville. The ranch is 1,600 acres high-fenced and protein fed, year round. We have approximately twelve blinds spaced out 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile form each other. It takes genetics, nutrition and age to grow trophy whitetail bucks and we were blessed to start with excellent South Texas trophy genetics. These mature native bucks have pre-rut body weights in excess of 250 pounds and can produce racks exceeding 180 inches. We have supplemented these native genetics with superior genetics – deer that have an excellent cross of Northern, Midwestern and South Texas trophy genetics for improved antler growth and body weight. Aldo Leopold, the father of modern wildlife management, wrote that the whitetail can be well-managed through the “same tools which have heretofore destroyed it – axe, cow, plow, fire and gun….management is their purposeful and continuing alignment.” At the JAG Ranch, we continue to apply all of these techniques and have developed the perfect balance to maintain a healthy ecosystem and we believe the best possible whitetail habitat in the State of Texas. We supplement this awesome whitetail habitat with year-round supplemental protein feeding that is available to the deer through numerous properly placed free-choice feeders. At the JAG Ranch, we allow the bucks to reach their full potential by strictly prohibiting the harvest of any trophy quality buck before the age of six years old.
Our Trophy Hunts are typically booked for a Thursday evening arrival and Sunday departure, after the morning hunt resulting in 3 nights and 2 1/2 hunting days. The fee is $2,500.00 per person and if you do not harvest your buck, this is all you pay. We will hunt for your desired buck and total cost depends upon gross Boone and Crockett score of your buck.

We offer hunts for management bucks (*up to 130 gross B&C ) for $2,500.00. The management hunter will also be able to shoot one doe, hogs and coyotes. *Some Managment Bucks will score higher than 130, and still be considered a “Management” Buck because of age and/or antler configuration, as selected by your guide.
JAG Ranch is well known for producing Trophy Boar Hogs with exceptional cutters. Trophy Boars with cutters can be harvested at an additional expense.
