Just got back from my Richards Ranch trip. It was awesome! We didn't land one of the many 125-160 Deer showing up on cam during shooting hours last week, but I did get an 18" inside 9 point. Beautiful mature 5.5+ year Deer, just had broken right G2 and overall short tines. Brent is great, made me feel at home on his 100+ year family ranch. My guide Shannon (same guide as Cliff Lee) did everything right, he had to work hard. The hidden secret may be the food! It was first class. My cabin was nice queen bed, heat/AC, kitchenette, shower, and cable TV. The lodge is cozy to sip a single malt or Lonestar
in front of the fire bench hunting with the guys.
The hunting is low fence on 15k acres. It is true fair chase, but with management tags you can hunt rifle in October or this week like I did. This is the place to go if looking for a solid (most typicals) 125-150 Whitetail. They have a pretty high opportunity rate for this. For example, Tommy Hunter took one, but Cliff Lee decided to pass on a few looking for something bigger and ended up not taking one. I wouldn't expect to shoot a 160+ Deer, but they do have them and they have been shot in the past. This is just a good reliable place to get a 125-150, a doe, and a hog all part of the package.
They also do a bunch of business for just hogs, turkey, and upland.
