Welcome to the world of hunting and the outdoors. For a first time hunt and getting to learn some basics, I think you are smart looking to go with an outfitter on a local ranch. I don't know of any place personally to recommend, but think that this is a good start. Some things to ask for when booking the hunt is what it includes. Some are just taking you out onto the land, others include a place to stay, feeding you, and cleaning the animal for you after you shoot it. I think being shown how to gut and skin an animal is where a lot of new people get discouraged, so having a pro show you how is almost worth the price of the hunt.
For a summer hunt, it's hard to beat Axis deer. There are a lot of them out there, they are beautiful, they are one of the very best tasting animals, and the best time to hunt them is just beginning.
I suggest creating a list of as many guides as you can before committing to one. The more you talk to personally on the phone, the more you will learn about who offers what. Some will have small pieces of land, others will hunt ranches several thousand acres in size. Some will want a lot of money for a deposit, others will be more reasonable.
After you have your list, google their names and their business names. Sadly, some of the most friendly guys on the phone turn out to be the biggest crooks out there.
