Let one of us know when ever your ready. I still think back to the first trip I went down over 20yrs ago and there is nothing I enjoy better than taking others down for their first Trip and see them Get Hooked just like I did.

It depends on what you compare it against. If you compare it against south tx, it's much cheaper!

Both.. It all comes down to what you are looking for. You can Find Trophy package hunts, Management Hunts, or a lease. Most of the Time The Lease is Cheaper but, You could go yrs on some places and never see a 150 class deer. It all depends what you are looking for.

How did we get On six pointers? O what the Hell I love them all

We had put out a hit on this dude for 3yrs before he messed up and walked out in front of Tracy and she had a bullet Left. He was 7.5yrs old shot on Jan 20th and he still pushed 240lbs live weight. He was a toad

Man I love those Old Mexico Line up Pictures. What was the Name of the Ranch?

Yeah D a buddy of Mine Finaly killed him on the second to last day of season that yr. He had broke both G2s, a whole Browtine, and the end of his beam off and still went around 120. We hunted him the whole season.

Yeah that is pretty Much what everyone did Before. For Some reason It was always a good feeling to walk on a new ranch every yr. It must have been a pretty good ranch because I still see deer that come off of it every now and then. Thanks for Posting

Here are some great deer taken from a few years back. They came from a couple of different ranches we hunted near Guerrero, Coahuila. I really miss hunting down there...

Good Lord those was some 8pts. I remember the 192 with Beto and the other 200 form the El Coyote. That 192 with Beto came out of Nuevo Leon off the Los Vibras.

Yes sir, that 8 was awesome. He came from the Reserva (2500 acre hf part of the Macho / Coyote), so did the 200.

The other pic with Beto came off the Macho and that buck won Los Cazadores in 99, here's a better pic with my buddy that killed him. We leased all of the Macho and Coyote for a couple of years.

The 192 came off the Vivores which borders the Macho, not the hf Vibores on the pipeline. Lot's of great deer on that fenceline. That is a friend of mines brother who shot that buck. He's in the pic with him lying on the ground. That buck is incredible.

Yep, we hunted in Mexico together for several years. That buck is one of my favorites. He's a maineframe 12 with double rows of points - 17 total, real heavy. The mount is awesome.

I have only been hunting there one time, but I can see were it would get in your soul. I had a great experience and feeling while spending time down there. I look to make more trips in the future.

On a side note, just bring plenty of beer and don't make a run to town to get more. Lesson learned
