Hunting in west Texas is considered by some to be a sportsman's dream. The variety of big game that can be hunted makes it a perfect location to buy one of a few west Texas hunting ranches for sale. With your own piece of land, being able to hunt no longer depends on finding a landowner willing to rent out their land. This allows you to take aim at these four creatures you will rarely find back east:
Also known as the Barbary Sheep, this introduced longhorn is an animal that is rarely seen in the U.S. outside of the Southwest and can grow to over 300 lbs. Getting the chance to hunt one is something few hunters in North America get to do, but you may get lucky and have a few stroll across your land.
Unlike the more common whitetail deer, the mule deer has long antlers and a much more limited natural range. Even so, they are fairly plentiful in west Texas, making it likely that you would get the chance to take one at some point in the season.
Many hunters dream of taking an elk in their lifetime, but few actually get the chance to do it. Since their range is so limited, a significant amount of travel is often required to even try bagging one of the largest mammals in North America. With your own piece of west Texas ranch land, you will have a decent shot at having elk come to you.
Known primarily as a nuisance throughout the West and South, you can take wild hogs at any point in the year with any type of firearm you choose. Though wild hogs used to not be a problem in west Texas, every year their numbers grow to the point where the state has a no-limit policy on the number you can take, provided you have a hunting license.
