hunts are guided and fair chase. At Heart of the Lonestar
Ranch we incorporate 3 basic styles of hunting: Stalking,
Blind hunting, and/or Safari Style. You can expect shots out
to 200 yards. Heart of the Lonestar Ranch has 23 entries in
the Trophy Game Records of the World.
In terms of equipment, Rifles of .243 caliber and larger are
recommended for deer and antelope. Some varieties of our animals
require larger calibers than others. If you have a question,
feel free to contact the ranch foreman for recommendations.
All turkeys are hunted with shotguns.
From mid-November through the end of February very cold weather
is possible, so pack accordingly. Spring, summer and fall
temperatures range from pleasant to quite warm. Good boots,
camouflage, and quality binoculars will increase your effectiveness.
Texas hunting license (not included) is required for native
game. Native game can only be hunted at certain times of the
year, contact the ranch foreman for current seasons on native
animals. Exotic hoofstock do not require a hunting license
and may be hunted any time of the year.
Please be aware that Texas State law requires all hunters
born on or after September 2, 1971 to have completed a Hunter
Education Training Course (unless you are under 12 years of
age in which you must be accompanied by someone who has completed
the course, or who is exempt – born before 9/2/71).
If you were born on or after 9/2/71 you have two options:
1. complete the Hunter Education Training Course or purchase
a hunter education deferral and be accompanied with someone
who has taken the course or is exempt from taking such.
your arrival to ranch headquarters and before any hunting
activities occur you will be required to sign a general release
and indemnity agreement.
