Best Addax Hunting in Texas

Priced per day | Trophy fee extra | Meals and Lodging Included

Hunting in Texas is some of the best in the country, if not the world.

Texas has a terrific diversity of both species and terrain. The state has long been known as a premier destination for whitetail hunts, but — among other things — there are also elk, buffalo, pronghorn and almost seventy different species of exotics available to hunt, as well.

When you hunt in Texas, you hunt on private ranches. It’s my job as an outfitter to choose the best ones for hunting and acquire the rights to hunt on those ranches. In my twenty years in the business, I’ve acquired half a million acres of prime hunting land in Texas, plus another half million in the Sierra del Carmen of northern Mexico.

That huge coverage gives me access to every conceivable species and just about every hunting environment — open range, low fence, and high fence; from flat to rugged.

It also means that I can give you the best opportunity to bring home a trophy.

Quality Versus Quantity

A long time ago, I decided to build my business around a limited number of quality hunts each year. I haven’t built it around quantity. I don’t use a bunch of guides so that I can run a dozen hunts at the same time.

​That means three things:

First, it means that I limit the number of hunts on any particular ranch so that it doesn’t get over-hunted. Game is allowed to mature, which increases the number of high-quality trophy opportunities you’ll have.

Second, it means that you’ll have exclusive access to the ranch that we’re hunting. You won’t share your camp with a bunch of strangers.

And third, it means that I’ll be hunting with you. I don’t hand you off to a guide. I’ve got staff to run the camp for things like cooking, but when you go out to hunt, you go out with me.

Planning Your Texas Hunt

Because there's no closed season on exotics here in Texas, you can hunt twelve months a year. Practically speaking, however, there are definitely different times in the year that are better for particular kinds of hunts.

I have a rough schedule I follow year after year, based on the best time and place for my most popular hunts. If you'd like to hunt something that's not on that schedule, just get in touch, and we can figure something out.

Please note that some of these hunts fill up quickly, and I can be booked a year or more in advance, so get in touch with me to book as soon as you know what you want to do.

Base Price is for the daily fee only per hunter per night. Trophy fee is additional.

Texas Addax Hunts – Packing List

If you are packing for a fall aoudad hunt plan on the weather being warm to hot. I wear a lightweight, long sleeve, tall collar shirt all the time. While riding in the buggy to/from the areas we’ll be hunting I wear a jacket or coat as necessary. The sun in West Texas is brutal, so it’s best to stay covered up all the time.

If you are packing for a spring Texas aoudad hunt, plan on cool to cold weather. We may get lucky and have some nice warm sunny days, but the mornings and afternoon in the buggy will be cold.

I prefer to wear wool when hunting in the mountains, but if you like synthetic that will work also. “Cotton kills” in the mountains, so leave the cotton at home unless you plan to wear it around camp.

Here’s my suggested packing list:

  • Backpack – a water bladder in your pack is extremely helpful. Not mandatory, but extremely helpful
  • Good binoculars
  • Rifle & Ammo
  • Valid Texas hunting license
  • Rain gear – more necessary in the spring than fall, but double-check the weather
  • Comfortable hiking boots – make sure they are broken in, and not brand new
  • Camp shoes
  • Jeans or Pants
  • Several Long Sleeve Shirts – lightweight shirts for fall hunts and wool or synthetic Long-Sleeve shirts for spring hunts
  • Jacket/Coat – for the ride in the buggy in the mornings/afternoons
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Chapstick
  • Insect repellant Sawyer Permethrin
  • Uninsulated & Insulated underwear (insulated for Spring hunts)
  • Kuiu Socks and Darn tough Hiker Micro Crew Cushion socks are my favorite. They last close to forever!
  • Personal Toiletries & Medicines
