Frequently Asked Questions


There are certain questions that come up a lot, so I've collected the questions and the answers on this 'Frequently Asked Questions' page.


Be sure to carefully read the questions about booking and payments, because those are key to getting your hunt set up. 

If you have any questions about your hunt, please contact me. You can reach me through the contact form on this site or by phone. I look forward to hearing from you.


There are a couple of documents you'll need to sign in order to schedule your hunt. One of them is my standard contract, the other is a waiver.


If you'd like to review those documents in advance, you can request copies from me here on the site.


The actual documents will be delivered to you electronically, via DocuSign, and you'll sign them electronically.


  • Once I get your deposit you go on my calendar, and I’ll send you a contract and release via DocuSign.


    You sign the documents electronically and you'll be emailed an executed copy of the contract.

  • Unfortunately, no.  I’m not able to hold dates for anyone without a deposit

  • Sure! Just fill out this request form, and I’ll get you a copy of all the documents you need to sign, so you can review them before you send your deposit.

  • Once you receive your signed contract, your hunt is booked and you’re on my calendar.  Unless you have questions and call or text me, you won’t hear much from me until a few weeks/days before your hunt. 


    As your hunt gets closer, I’ll decide what ranch we will be hunting and will drop a pin on a map and text it to you.  That pin will take you right to the gate.  I’ll either meet you at the gate or I’ll give you the combo and tell you where to meet me.

  • For all of my hunts that have trophy fees, those fees are due prior to departing the ranch and can be paid in cash, cashier check, money order, Venmo, Cash App, PayPal or wire transfer. No personal checks are accepted for trophy fees unless approved prior to arrival.

    For all of my flat rate hunts, the final payment is due prior to arrival. You can send your final payment via wire, Venmo, Cash App, PayPal, cashier check, money order, or personal check.


    Final payments for my Spring Aoudad and Javelina hunts, as well as my Spring Turkey hunts, are due Feb 1. Final payments for my Fall Aoudad, Javelina, and Pronghorn hunts are due Aug 1. Final payments for my Winter Aoudad and Mule Deer hunts are due Nov 15.

  • All deposits are non-refundable.  If something comes up and you’re not able to make your hunt, and I’m able to re-book your hunt, the re-booking fee is 20% of the total cost of your hunt.  If I’m not able to re-book your hunt your deposit is forfeit. 


    For that reason, I strongly suggest purchasing travel insurance and will send you a link to Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance.


  • You can mail a check, Venmo, PayPal or wire transfer.  Please contact me directly for specific instructions on sending your deposit.

  • Yes credit cards are accepted, but all the prices listed are CASH prices. Any/all service fees added for any transaction, typically about 4% for credit cards, will be added to the total cost of the hunt.


  • I’m not a ranch owner. I’m a Texas-based hunting outfitter, and I have multiple ranches in South Texas, the Hill Country, and West Texas. I’ve also got a big ranch in Northern Coahuila Mexico, just South of Big Bend National Park.

    I have been doing this since 2005 and have a wide network of ranches that I work with. When you book a hunt with me, you and your group will have exclusive rights to the ranch for the duration of your hunt.  I’ve got some of the best private ranches in Texas.

  • In West Texas, I’ve got over 500,000 acres.  


    In the Hill Country, my ranches vary in size but the smallest high fence ranch I regularly hunt is 3,600 acres.


    In Mexico, I’ve got 500,000 contiguous acres.

  • I’ve got both.  All of my country in West Texas and Mexico is free-range. The majority of my exotics, except free-range aoudad, are high fence.

  • I’ve got free-range aoudadpronghorndesert mule deerjavelinasome elk and a few Carmen Mountain whitetail and desert bighorn in West Texas. 


    Most of my exotic hunts (30-40 species) are in the Hill Country. 


    My turkey hunts and whitetail hunts are in the Hill Country & South Texas. 


    In Mexico, I’ve got Carmen Mountain whitetail, some desert mule deer and desert bighorn.


  • All of my hunts start at 1:30 on the first day of your hunt and end after the morning hunt on the last day of your hunt (unless previous arrangements have been made).

  • For hunts in West Texas, fly into Midland/Odessa or El Paso, rent a car. It’s about a 3-hour drive to any of my ranches.  If you’re driving, head towards Alpine, Texas.

    For Texas hunts in the Hill Country, fly into San Antonio and rent a car. It’s about a 2-hour drive to any of my ranches.  If you’re driving, head toward Kerrville, Texas.

    For hunts in Mexico, fly or drive into Del Rio and we will get to the ranch from there.

  • All of my hunts are fully guided, except my turkey hunts.  


    All meals, lodging, guide, transportation around the ranch and field care of your trophy are included. 

    My turkey hunts are semi-guided allowing you to call/hunt as you wish.

  • Transportation to and from the ranch, skinning/caping/quartering your animal(s), transporting your animal to the taxidermist/processor, shipping of hide/horns/meat, and CITES paperwork are not included in your hunt.


    Also not included are drinks, other than coffee and water. Please make arrangements to bring your own.
