Last week, I was fortunate to hunt with some new friends at Laguna Vista Ranch in Pearsall, TX. I have wanted to hunt Laguna Vista's property for some time now, and I will be the first to say that it was worth the wait....and I cannot wait to return for another trip!

Our group had a very successful trip....taking 7 trophy animals over the course of 4 days. Laguna Vista is one of a select few properties in the U.S. that holds a federal CITES permit for hunting Red Lechwe. The ranch has a substantial amount of wetland areas, that provides ample natural habitat for their breeding Lechwe herd. I have wanted a Lechwe for a long time, and was finally able to cross it off my bucket list! I shot a nice old bull off the sticks at 180 yards after a day and a half of unsuccessful stalks.

I also managed to get a great OLD Blackbuck ram with 4 curls....which I just couldn't pass up. The other guys took several animals including Blackbuck, Axis, Pure European Mouflon, Scimitar Oryx, and Bison. The ranch hosts quite a few species of game, but does not utilize feeders like most ranches do. Instead, they have several hundred acres of irrigated fields which provide year-round nutrition for the animals on the ranch....and also provide a much more natural and challenging hunting experience.

I hope you guys enjoy the photos...

Wow that is a nice Lechwe, I've wanted to take one myself for many years. He will make an incredible mount. Thank you for sharing your excellent photos with us. I'm just now planning a trip for this summer with a few folks so and I'll research Laguna Vista. Well done sir!! Baker
