Gray Fox (part of Bag-A-Nut company) recently took a trip to the Ox Hunting Ranch, located in Uvalde, Texas. It was such a fun experience for both hunter and non-hunter. On the first day, we arrived in the afternoon and had lunch, served by their award winning chef. Next, we met our guide, who was with us for our entire stay. Ox Hunting Ranch is an all inclusive experience, so meals, snacks, and drinks are provided for you! The ranch boasts a farm-to-table experience, so wild game is on the menu. If you are hunting during your stay, your guide will help you with any activities you want to do on the ranch, and of course is your exclusive hunting guide around the massive 18,000 acre property
The property has beautiful rocky hills and valleys with over 60 species of exotic, free range animals, including deer. The historic cabins for lodging have been relocated from Kentucky and rebuilt on site. They have been updated with all the modern day amenities. There are also cabins along a beautiful lake next to activities suited for family entertainment, such as a playground, putt putt golf, and kayaks. There is no lack of activity for those who are not there to hunt. You can go hiking, cave exploring, fishing, feed giraffes, and swim in their resort style pool.
We spent most of our time riding around the outfitted jeep with our guide, hunting the beautiful hills. During our hunt, we decided to try for a Catalina goat with archery equipment. The guides advised it would be tough to get close enough for a bow shot, but the guys were determined to try. Our guide got us in sight of several goats, but in the end, stalking goats up rocky hillsides proved to be too difficult for our 2 day stay. Not to worry though, we didn’t get completely skunked! We did some night hunting for pigs out of a blind that was an experience in itself. It is equipped with real time game cameras and night vision scopes. This was a blind set up like no other, with drinks, snacks, and a poker table available while you wait for the game to come feed.
Although we didn’t leave with our trophy this time, we're already planning to go back. The guys are determined to try again with their bows. We like a challenge! We highly recommend Ox Hunting Ranch! Check it out here and start planning your trip today! https://www.oxhuntingranch.com
