Why hunt the Faith Ranch?
Bucks in Texas
Since 1980, Dimmit County ranks number 2 in the
United States in the number of Boone & Crockett record book
whitetails (23 bucks). Webb County ranks number 4 with 21
bucks. Maverick County, home of the number one Texas typical
(the McCullough buck) has over 11 records since 1980. Those
top producing counties intersect at only one place: THE FAITH
and a commitment to wildlife research
Nature provides the Faith Ranch with the ingredients
to produce large white-tailed deer. Our primary job is to not
screw up what nature has provided. We do that by very conservative
harvest practices: we DO NOT allow immature bucks to be
killed and we limit the number of each buck class—gold, silver,
and bronze—our hunters take. To paraphrase a tired cliché, “we
will harvest no buck before its time.”
Top quality guides
As those who have hunted with other outfitters know well,
the quality of the guides is a critical ingredient to the success
of the hunt and one's overall hunting experience. Faith Ranch
prides itself on the quality of our deer hunting guides. They
know deer behavior; they can judge antlers; they understand
how to age whitetails; and they know how to take care of their
hunters. We are confident that you will find the guides at the
Faith Ranch second-to-none.
You will see lots of bucks
Why does Faith
produce big bucks?
Faith has four ingredients that has allowed it to produce large
white-tailed bucks: (1) a large ranch itself (40,000 acres),
it is surrounded by large ranches; (2) the ranch is remote—located
far away from any population center; (3) its soils are diverse
with a sandy belt called the Carrizo sand that runs through
the ranch; and (4) the low rainfall the ranch receives, paradoxically,
produces big bucks by keeping the population well within the
carrying capacity of the land.
