Default Del rio questions

Hey guys I just got on a lease with a buddy. 600 acres 3 guns it has a little camp house a few ponds and a live creek....ive never hunted out that way so I’m just wondering what to expect as far as deer. How bad are the snakes? Where is the best place to buy protein? Any good restaurants? Any input you guys have is greatly appreciated! I’d love to see some pics of deer too. You can post them here or shoot me a text 281-731-4872 thanks guys!

Del Rio Feed & Supply sells corn and protein. You could also stop at Oasis in Uvalde, Mummes or Lyssy & Echel in Hondo. Not sure about the deer quality, a good buck could be anything from 130's-170's depending on neighbors and management.

Del Rio feed will meet your feed needs, fair on feed price. Usually eat at camp, so don't know much on the dining but there are a lot of options. Deer quality is hit or miss depending on neighbors and we were hit pretty hard with anthrax this past summer, so numbers are down, on my lease anyway.

Being on the border the Mexican food is surprisingly bad. Julio's chips factory is the best but it's nothing to write home about. The small pools of water for cattle and wildlife are called "tanks".

This for sure.

I wore snake boots at all times when I hunted out that way on the advice of lease mates but I never saw a snake. That country has the potential to produce some really nice deer but a lot depends on neighbors since you just have 1 section. In my experience, the hunting didn't get really good until the last two weeks of the season. You may come across exotics and or aoudad out that way. Also as stated above, the area can be anthrax prone so I would ask whether they got hit this year. Good luck. It is neat country for sure.

Did y'all verify that your place wasn't affected by anthrax this year?
My buddy's lease near Del Rio was decimated by anthrax last summer.

My buddy leases 16K acres north of Del Rio about 30 minutes and has great hunting. He has managed it and fed it alot but they are seeing some really great deer and killing some really great deer. He also has some Axis on his place. Definitely will depend on your neighbors on 600 acres but it can be done.

I go through del rio a lot on the way to my place. Del Rio Feed is a great bet butttttt make sure your trip works with their hours. Once you get out there if they are not open there is not many options for corn at a decent price. HEB across the street is your best bet but its still more expensive.

I stick with ole Whataburger when Im out that way.

The snakes are there. We always find them around feeders and in the shade. IF you have a wood pile they are in there. We place each log about 4 inches apart from each other so its not so much of a pile.

I was reading another thread on here where people were reporting the hogs had moved in that way. Im much further west so I don't see um.... yet.

You're a funny guy. I have worked and had offices in border towns for 30 years. RGV, Laredo, Del Rio. Eagle Pass, El Paso. I used to eat the food on both sides of the border when it was safe. Del Rio and Eagle Pass is easily the worst mexican food on the border. Been to the two you mentioned numerous times. These are not just my thoughts but our techs and supervisors that traveled to all towns. The best in that area used to be Ma Crosby's in Acuna.

I drive through there every lease trip. DON'T eat at Julios. It's horrible. As other have said, the Mexican food is terrible for a border town. I buy corn at Oasis in Uvalde. They've been cheaper than everyone else, about $6.79/50. The Blue Oasis on the west side of town on US 90 has good food.

If you just need to fill a hole, Sirloin Stockade is there as well.

Like said above the deer quality can be pretty good, should have good numbers as well if not had anthrax run through. Also a big factor is going to be neighbors and management. Something I’ve noticed the last couple years is bigger property being broken up and sold or leased out turning into a similar situation that rock springs is in.

Everything out there will stick, sting, or bite. It’s not bad though as long as you just pay attention and don’t run into some cholla cactus or spiny hackberry. Snakes, there’s rattlers obviously but I wouldn’t worry too much about them.

Feed there is del rio feed and supply, decent place. As mentioned oasis in uvalde and Lyssey and eckle in hondo.

El patio and Julio’s is about the best food there, don marcelinos are all terrible. Sirloin stockade is okay as well.

Don’t forget the wild game dinner at the convention center in December as well as fishing at amistad.

Buddy of mine hunts in Del Rio and he still hasn't been able to eat the three deer he killed this year. It is a CWD county and TPWL still haven't posted his numbers online as safe to consume yet. He had to turn over the heads for tissue sample and wait.

I would say the average for that county buck size is 115-120” but like everyone else has mentioned it depends on how things are managed around you... we averaged around 145” this year but are place is 13,000 acres so we control the pressure pretty well. I’m a believer of protein only during the off season and then we kick on our corn feeders come mid to late September... it seems to make them crazy when the corn hits the ground

The early season hunting seems to depend on how dry it is going into October. For Bowhunting mid to late November seemed to be the best then the rut was good for the rifle hunters.

Whataburger is probably the best restaurant in town or at least that’s all we eat when in town. I enjoy the hell out of the area, it definitely can be a bow hunting paradise.

Is your place off 90 or 277?

The last Amistad deer I had tested at the Del Rio station took every bit of 4 weeks to get result. The first Amistad deer I had tested I took it to the Hondo station and it was maybe 1.5 weeks. That was before the mandatory hit for the Del Rio area though. Neither of them kept the heads, they simply took a sample from each.

Before anthrax we killed some studs on low fence but I’d say average mature trophy is around 135” with the opportunity to grow them to book deer. Really fun country to hunt and I’ve enjoyed it last 6 years. See maybe one or two rattlers every off season but rarely during deer season, they are there though. Never know when you will see an exotic which is a plus, I killed a random 32” axis one year and have had all kind of random ones on camera. I usually BBQ at camp so not much help on restaurants. Del Rio feed is great, I hit oasis feed coming from San Antonio.
Like others said it’s an anthrax area and any year you could be screwed. This summer hit us very very very hard.

A LOT depends on whether you are north or south of town too... I had a place south of town for 31 years... Loved it... Farther South you go, bigger the deer get... Our best was a 203 B&C. South of town, has heavier illegal traffic... no lake to slow 'em down...
There are still some big ranches north of town toward and along the Dolen Creek Ranch Road... They grow some big deer in that area too... With only 600 acres, you won't have any control over management. Might as well shoot whatever you see that trips your trigger. We allowed 600 acres per man on our 10K acres, and felt like we were a bit too crowded... Lot of that country is pretty open other than the draws and valleys...



As far as restaurants, for once I TOTALLY agree with BoB regarding mesican food... Once asked a guy in town that used to do a lot of work for us... Where do you go to get good mesican food round here Johnny? He thought a minute, then said, "home"... Pretty much sums up Del Rio's mesican food... There was 4 Don Marcellino's at one time in Del Rio and they were all terrible, Still Are! If you like Chinese/Thai food, there's a little place on the right as you come into town on HWY 90 called Jitra... It used to be a Dairy Queen... That is some of the BEST authentic Chinese/Thai food on the planet! Manuel's Steak House in the middle of town is also OK, a bit over priced, but OK. Frankly, especially on Friday nights (fish special) The Sirloin Stockade is pretty dang good. We used the boys at Del Rio Feed and Supply for about everything we needed. We weren't far South of town and often had them deliver. If you have exotics (espeically axis and/or elk), you'll want to keep alfalfa hay feeders going for them... They love it better'n corn.


Russell True Value hardware has a pretty decent gun/hunting section in their store, but they're not open on Sundays. If you bring the wives and such, it's petty cool to go into old Downtown and tour the winery too...


We loved our place. Like I said, we had it for 31 years... The movie series Lonesome Dove was filmed there, but then Mr. Moody died and the family sold the ranch... It has since sold 3 more times... I understand the current owner is looking to lease it out for hunting... There's no way in hell I'd ever hunt there again and have to contend with all the dang border patrol, USDA ag guys, Homeland Security, illegals/drug runners and such again!! But we sure had fun there for a long time, but that was a long time ago too... We used to duck hunt the Rio Grande... best duck hunting on the planet. Guaranteed limits if you had enough shells... ducks were always there... But again, that was a different time... Probably no bueno to do that now...


Good luck with your lease. Hope you shootabiggun!

Hunted same ranch as James for 6 years, and what he said is spot on. I got off right before the Anthrax hit this year only because I was tired of the 5 hour drive (One Way). Great country to hunt and the Low Fence ranch there was awesome. I was lucky enough to kill 4 of my biggest Bow bucks there. 154, 152, 146, and 144 James is right that mid 30's buck is was more prevalent where we were hunting, but there were a few 150+'s killed each year. As most have said 600 acres in that country could be tough to manage for alot of high quality if everyone around you isn't applying those same mgmnt practices. Justin at Del Rio Feed along with the rest of the staff are good people. Here are pics of the 4 I mounted from there. The middle 8 pt was killed on my new lease this year

Ma Crosby's closed years ago as many businesses did due to lack of tourism. The nachos there were other worldly. A chunk of medium rare beef on each chip with cheddar cheese and a spoonful of fresh guacamole.

That's what I remember. Also eat lots of Quail and something called Botanna over there in restaurant close by. Botanna was beef strips with onion and other veges. Too many years ago to remember.

We hunt Comstock....awesome ranch. Del Rio feed has it all...Justin is good people. I prefer the Mummes in Llano because of the scent but I often get feed and cottonseed at DFS too. There were some good deer killed on our place this year. Very low hunting pressure. Good luck on your new place, always fun setting up for new place.

Salas Better Burger down on Ogden next to baseball park.
Don Marcelino's, don't believe the haters they are just ordering the wrong thing. Get the guisado burritos, add green sauce.

Yea they can't call 'em "carne" cuisado's because there's no guarantee WHAT's in 'em... All the Don Marcellino's are nasty too... Only decent one used to be the original DM #2 that was diagonally across the intersection from HEB... It was in an old gas station, but the Health Dept, finally shut it down... The cook however moved to Poncho's Mexican Restaurant. It's on the corner of 6th St. and Ave G. It's just OK, but it's the best mesican food in Del Rio.


There also is a pretty good local burger shop in the edge of old downtown on Ogden St. called Salas Better burger... We used to get them to go from there pretty regular as it's sort of on the way to/from Del Rio Feed, and back in the day when Producer's Wool and Mohair was the best place to get corn... It's only a couple blocks away from there. Salas is "across the tracks from the main drag so you have to go into downtown and cross the RR tracks to get to it or take the 277 South exit and circle around...

There were some good deer killed on our place this year. Very low hunting pressure. Good luck on your new place, always fun setting up for new place.

I like Marcelinno’s. Maybe I don’t have a discerning enough taste buds, lol.

Mexico Tipico has good food on las vacas street. All thought, I heard the cook just moved on so who knows now. Breakfast and lunch only. The Brown Bag also has very good food. Limited hours on his place also.

Question for those of you out on hunting leases: what the H are you guys doing eating in town and not cooking camp food??
