Due to the size of the ranch is it HF or LF? I figure as big as that ranch is HF isn't necessary to keep the animals around.


"King Ranch is the premier hunting destination for whitetail deer, nilgai, turkey, feral hog, javelina, and other game. King Ranch conducts its hunts in a free-range, low-fence, fair-chase environment, offering great opportunities for both experienced and novice hunters."

Good luck! Be there in August for the 8th year in a row!

Just a heads up - apparently they spent a bunch of money cleaning up the water holes. There were some that were to over grown to hunt.

Tell Oscar Longoria hello for me if he is guiding you.
