I just wanted to let you guys know that I found a ranch (just hunted it Friday, as a matter of fact) that is sort of unusual for a ram hunt.
Most hunts are "livestock" that are released periodically or before a scheduled hunt (put and take) but after weeks of researching nearly every ranch in Texas, I found a place that is out of the norm.
The Whiterock Trophy Ranch was built 3 years ago and a heard of rams was put together. These rams have only been hunted half a dozen times since then so they are not your average rams. I would consider them native to the property at this point. After a 5 hour spot and stalk, I finally got one!
As of Friday there were 2 black Hawaiians that were just spectacular and some very large Dalls and corsican as well as one nice Painted Desert.
My guide Jeff is a fine Christian man as is the owner Mike.
A true family run operation.

Throughout the day several chocolate fallow, blackbuck, and whitetail were seen as well.
The 1 hr drive to the ranch was nice. My current hunting spots are in Nacogdoches/Nachitoches and Cherokee, TX so being close to DFW was a huge draw for me to choose this location. With prices equal to, if not cheaper than most ranches in the hill country so I saved money on both ends.

I hope it didn't cost more than $1.85/lb. That thing doesn't look to be even a year old.

The hunt was $200 plus a $50 guide fee which I thought was very reasonable.
The guide/owner gutted, skinned and quartered then got him in the walk-in cooler to cool while we ran into town for lunch with no additional charges for those services.
Not sure how much the ram weighed or its age. Neither were factors in my decision making process.

This fat boy was plum wore out. It was 73 deg when we started walking and 93 deg when we loaded up to go eat. I felt all 20 degrees! Ain't walked that much in a long time. Sure was glad to see that Polaris roll up.
This was no "drive up and shoot" affair although now I see why some choose that style of hunt...my feet hurt!

Classic Rocks- thanks for allowing me the honor and pleasure of wearing you out to get your ram. LOL! I had a great time as your guide and I look forward to hunting with you in the future. I think a lot of folks on here have hit the nail on the head. It is the experience of the hunt that counts. For each person that looks different. White Rock Trophy Ranch and me personally, aim to understand each hunters' needs; so that they achieve the experience expected within their budgetary limits. Thank you again for your business.
