Has anyone been recently to a low fence ranch and killed a 150" class deer? Would you recommend going back? I'm looking for a low fence ranch, where I can take a 150" deer.

Thanks for your help

I've not hunted either ranch but have heard great things about both. On the Killam hunts you have to stay in one of the Laredo hotels/motels. Charco Marrano has lodging on the ranch.

In my opinion, most of Texas is the the best place in the United States to have highest opportunity at a 120-135" deer free range. You can go to Kansas and Illinois for lower opportunity at a 120-135", but higher opportunity at a 150"+ than Texas.

Ranches like King Ranch and what fouzman mention are exceptions for opportunity and high quality, but you pay for it.

I believe the best place to get opportunity, high quality, and reasonable cost is Canada.

I have put a bunch of time analyzing it and hunted Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Illinois extensively. Haven't hunted Canada yet, but trust the people I've talked to.

I REALLY appreciate this fouzman. I have been looking around for higher end free range ranches like this for awhile. I've known about King Ranch, but their rates 30-40% higher than these.

I may be wrong, but I think Callaghan runs their package hunts inside their high-fenced pastures. All the low-fence pastures are leased to groups, I think but I could be wrong.

You might check with some of the ranches around Albany like: Nail Ranch, Collins Creek Ranch, and Stasney's Cook Ranch.
