Dos Plumas Hunting Ranch Frequently Asked Questions
What supplies do I need to bring with me when I hunt at your ranch?
You’ll need to bring your weapon of choice and bug repellant depending on the time of the year. It’s also a good idea to bring brush pants for spotting and stalking. You’ll also need trash bags and coolers for transporting your meat, and you may want to bring drinking water. You’ll need to bring your own food and spices. We have a full kitchen available for your use but we do ask that you wash the dishes before you leave. We also provide towels and linens for our guests.
How much land does the ranch have to hunt?
The hog hunting ranch holds 625 acres of prime Texas hog hunting property. The ranch has elevation to it and is where we hunt the wild hogs and rams. We have other properties for our whitetail deer and turkey hunts. Our properties are not contiguous so we don’t have to pressure the animals.
Are there any trophy fees or additional costs that I’m not seeing on your website?
Absolutely not. We pride ourselves on not having any trophy or kill fees and NO SURPRISE COSTS. The last thing we want going through the hunter’s mind when they pull the trigger is, “How much is this going to cost me?” We want you to have a great hunt at a fair price.
