    Hi, guys - I am considering a trip to the above ranch for trophy Axis, Blackbuck,Mouflon and wonder if any of you have any experience of the place? I am travelling from the UK this summer, and would welcome any information or indeed if there is an alternative ranch you would recommend? Thanks, Bill.

    It's a easy hunt. All the animals are separated in pens

    Squa mountain ranch in Jacksboro is good also.
     
  8. There is not many fair hunts for any of those species. There non native and all on high fence ranches, no high fence hunt is fair imo.

    Many thanks guys - I accept it is not exactly a fair hunt so to speak ( unless I went to India etc) I just want them to be in a large ranch where they are what you would consider semi wild) I have had a look at the 777 ranch, and that is defo not for me with so many exotics and the fence so obvious and tame animals) Timing is important as I want to harvest the above animals in prime condition for mounting.

    I wouldn't say they are all behind high fences. There are thousands of axis, fallow, blackbuck sika etc... behind low fence in Texas. We have axis on our place that come and go. I live about 50 minutes from the Wildlife ranch in Mason, TX. I would stay away from the wildlife Ranch they have tons of bad reviews. If you need help finding a place to hunt shoot me a PM I will point you in the right direction.

    The West Kerr ranch, near Mountain Home is a good place to try, in my opinion. It is around 11,000 acres. High fenced, as most of the Hill country is, but the animals there are from a self reproducing population, and are quite wild. You could definitely go there and not get your Axis, as it is not a sure thing. I have hunted there half a dozen times over the past 17 years, and have always had a good experience.
