I have hunted ranches in the Texas Hill Country, Wisconsin, Montana, Kentucky and my home state of Georgia. In my opinion, Lonesome Coyote is the best Whitetail and Predator hunting that I have ever experienced. The ranch has not imported deer or implemented programs to improve genetics. The deer that you will see and hunt are all native Texas deer. Amazing antler production is achieved through year-round supplemental feeding and careful management of the existing herd. During my times in the blind I saw an abundance of bucks in the 3-6 year old range, most sporting typical framed antlers in the 150-190 inch range. There was no issue with having opportunities to take deer at reasonable distances {under 100 yards) or for more experienced hunters to take them at longer ranges (up to 700 yards). THESE DEER ARE NOT PEN RAISED. The high fence is thousands of acres in size as is the low fence portion, you may elect to target a particular deer caught on trail cam but there are no guarantees that you will see them, particularly during the period of the rut. The buck to doe ratio seems to be managed at about one buck to two does, assuring competition for breeding. I witnessed several amazing buck battles during my hunt. In the interest of full disclosure, I didn't book a deer hunt for this trip. My desire for this trip was to accompany my older brother on his hunt for a 180 class deer and to aid in his success by sitting stands and scouting for him, therefore I booked a predator hunt. I had never hunted predator in Texas before and had heard legendary stories of the shooting opportunities. Our third brother also hunted predators. We had opportunities to shoot coyotes, javelinas, hogs and raccoons. Believe me, we had more opportunities to shoot {particularly hogs) than I ever imagined. "Die, piggy die" was my brother's war cry when exiting the lodge before each hunt and he always came back smiling. As stated earlier, the goal of my hunt was to scout and reconnoiter for my deer hunting brother. After assisting him on his hunt, I took the opportunity to predator hunt and explore the exotics on the ranch. I saw both Axis and Fallow deer in abundance and several that tempted my to add an exotic to my hunt. My guide was a college graduate in wildlife management from Texas A&M who had interned on the ranch and elected to return post-graduation. Kayla was well-versed in the ranch's wildlife and shared my enthusiasm for both hunting and wildlife viewing. We had an amazing time and I saw several species of birds and animals that I had never encountered. She tailored our hunts to meet my goals for each outing. I can honestly say that this was my best hunting experience ever. We were treated like family by everyone. The food was so good that I insisted on getting one of the cookbooks that the ranch owner has compiled over the years for preparing the ranch meals. The ranch manager, Jerry, is the son-in-law of the ranch owners and is fiercely committed to the ranch success as well as the success of each guest. The Lodge is amazing and extremely accommodating. I cannot think of a hunt or a location that was better than my experience at Lonesome Coyote. If I am blessed with another dream hunt, I want it to be at Lonesome Coyote.
