OX Ranch is the finest hunting ranch I've ever seen! Truly a bowhunters heaven! I thought I had died and gone to bowhunting heaven. We didn’t see hundreds of deer on the Ox Ranch, we saw thousands of deer! Expand
The Ox Ranch (oxhuntingranch.com) is literally indescribable, but this old Michiganiac guitar abusing bowhunter will do my best to describe it, waxing poetic the breathtaking vision of Brent Oxley and his master ranch manager Tony Harden where the rolling Hill Country meets South Texas .
We didn’t see hundreds of deer on the Ox Ranch, we saw thousands of deer. I’m telling you this premier south Texas habitat is proof positive that God is real, and His miraculous touch obliterates the so-called “Big Bang” theory. And my big bang ain’t no theory, it’s real!
Mountains, valleys, deserts, rockscapes, cliffs, cactus, cedars, pinyon pines, live oak forests, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and every imaginable natural, indigenous, ultimate deer nutrition vegetation that a deer lover could hope for as far as the eyes can see make for a wildlife dreamland.
I thought I had died and gone to bowhunting heaven, and I do believe I am indeed well beyond just the thought process. I lived it.
With the clever and successful Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Managed Land Deer Permit program in place for more than twenty years, private landowners, which control more than 90 percent of the Texas land mass, determine the optimal harvest rates for our own property.
The simple science of habitat carrying capacity and whitetail deer population dynamics being well established, this private “we the people” control has the Texas deer herd healthier or more productive than ever before, and that translates into more fun deer hunting than anywhere else I can imagine.
At the Ox Ranch, as an army of dedicated workers remained busy on the construction of a huge, palatial lodge and custom cabins and chalets, Kris and I spent every morning and every afternoon in treestands and popup blinds surrounded by deer and other wildlife.
We saw herds of zebra, Oryx, wildebeest, African red lechwe, Asiatic buffalo, American bison, blackbuck antelope, axis deer, sika deer, fallow deer, Pere David deer, never ending flocks of Rio Grande turkeys, rafts of waterfowl on all the waterways, every imaginable songbird, and of course unbelievable numbers of the mighty whitetails.
Hidden up in the thick scrub covered hillsides were growing, breeding herds of African Aoudad sheep, Iranian Red sheep, African eland, kudu, waterbuck, addax, and wild hogs galore.
Tony Harden and master guide Raice Davidson gave us tours of the endless terrain, and set us up in some killer ambush locations for great hunting every day.
Having never been commercially hunted yet, the game was always in sight and rather relaxed compared to the Midwest deer I have been tortured by in Michigan all my life. Here at the Ox Ranch the deer didn’t actually give it to me, but my ultra-stealth approach did pay off with some wonderful arrows on some great mature whitetail bucks and does for upcoming killer Spirit of the Wild TV on Outdoor Channel.
I should clearly point out right here and now that nobody could possibly appreciate such a bowhunting dream like the Ox Ranch more than this old bowhunter, and quite honestly, I remained bug-eyed and totally gaga during my entire, incredible experience there.
For a guy growing up in the shadow of Fred Bear, trying to figure out how to kill maniac spooky Michigan whitetails with my yew wood longbow back in the 1950s and 60s, I thought my heart was about to slam out of my chest every minute I was on stand at this place.
Do not underestimate the increased joys, challenge, sport, meat and trophies that await dedicated deer hunters at the Ox Ranch. When the deer season wraps up where you live, I would encourage you to join the many deer hunting families from around the country that extend their deer hunting fun and excitement in Texas.
There are many opportunities throughout the Lone Star state that you have to experience to believe the level of enjoyment and quality of hunting that is available.
I started my own Sunrize Safaris guiding, booking and outfitting business many years ago to assist new and veteran hunters to find the best quality places to hunt, and as of this recent trip, I put the Ox Ranch right up at the top of the heap.”
I like to be free and that’s the feeling I get when I hunt at the Ox Ranch. It’s just a wonderful place for the hunter and the photographer. It’s the closest thing to Africa I have seen. It’s freedom. ExpandHunting Celebrity
I like to be free and that’s the feeling I get when I hunt at the Ox Ranch. There are thousands of acres to walk, glass and enjoy. There are miles of clear streams and lakes to fish, swim and relax by. On the flats, you can see herds of blackbuck, scimitar and many other species. In the trees and brush, whitetails, fallow, sika and axis duck in and out – the next buck always seeming bigger than the one before. In the hills, there are majestic aoudad sheep, Armenian rams and so many others.
It’s just a wonderful place for the hunter and the photographer. It’s the closest thing to Africa I have seen. It’s freedom.
My visit to Ox Hunting Ranch was nothing short of outstanding and that's not a word I throw around lightly. From my the property to the hunt to the food and accommodations everything was beyond first class...It was outstanding. I cannot wait to return there again! - Gayne C. Young, Outdoor Writer
I have personally been to Ox Ranch three times over the past two years or so. It's an amazing place with a ton of different things to do. ExpandCEO, Help.com
You can feed a giraffe, go swimming in spring fed water, and ride in a tank all on the same day and still have plenty more to do. The staff is extremely friendly and works hard to ensure you’re enjoying yourself. I’ve enjoyed Ox Ranch so much that I am planning on having a company offsite at the ranch in the near future. The team is already very excited and I know we will all have a great time.
Holding our corporate retreat at OX Ranch was an experience like no other. ExpandCEO, Realty.com
It was so much fun to shoot big guns, feed freshly picked carrots to the giraffes, and drive the jet skis a little too fast. Our team is more tightly knit team now… which could be from sharing such close quarters inside that tank. Since our visit, we’ve implemented a number of initiatives that were developed and fleshed out during our visit. Thanks to everyone at Ox Ranch for making us feel like family. Say hi to Bacon for me! We’ll be back soon.
If you’re looking to see what Texas is all about, I advise you to check out Ox Hunting Ranch. Our company Ecig.com had the pleasure of having our annual directors meeting at the Ox, and we couldn't have been more impressed! ExpandCEO, ECIG.com
The day started with our chartered plane conveniently landing on their 5,800 foot runway. We then proceeded to receive a tour of the property with our guide Tony Harden. He was awesome! He allowed us to hand feed giraffes, zebras, Watusis, and a hundred other animals of which I’ve unfortunately forgotten the names of!
After the tour, we were taken to a firing range and shot their 50 caliber Barrett. This was the most powerful gun any of us had ever shot. It was so powerful that it shook the table and everything around it! Mr. Oxley, the ranch owner, was kind enough to come down and greet us as well as thank us for our business.
After a delicious lunch catered by their in-house chef Eric, our team headed off to jet ski and swim around one of their waterfalls. To finish off the evening our tour guide Tony took us hog hunting with night vision goggles. Let me tell you, if you’ve never done this, you’re in for a big treat! I had no idea what was in store for us! With a totally blacked out truck, we raced up and down mountains with only our goggles to guide us vision wise! We ended up netting 4 big Texas-sized hogs that night.
It was the best corporate retreat I’ve ever been on, and we’ll be sure to be back next year. Our thanks to Mr. Oxley and the whole team at Ox Ranch for their kindness and hospitality.
As a professional broker who specializes in large Texas ranches, I wholeheartedly believe that there is nothing as incredibly impressive as this property within the entire state of Texas. ExpandHood Real Estate Inc.
Located where West and South Texas meet the Edward’s Plateau, the 17,132+ acres of the Ox Ranch embody attributes of all three regions. The ranch is one of the most beautiful properties in the state of Texas as evidenced by the Piñon Pine, Guajillo, Blackbrush, Live Oak, and Pecan trees outlining the banks of the ranch’s private water source, Live Oak Creek. Seven miles of this majestic running water flows through the center of the property, leaving both banks within the ranch’s high fence. As a professional broker who specializes in large Texas ranches, I wholeheartedly believe that there is nothing as incredibly impressive as this property within the entire state of Texas.
OMG what a great time we had! Your entire crew treated every one of us like long lost friends. I can only imagine what the ranch will be like when the lodge and housing are all done. I was in awe at every turn while we were out riding and the introduction to large caliber auto weaponry and night vision. The list goes on! ExpandFather of the groom
There is NO place in CT that we could ever see any of this (it’s hard enough to carry a handgun). I can’t thank you enough for making this weekend especially perfect for the groom, Chris. I wish I was there for the kill just to see his face. I think he has had a grin on all week! I don’t doubt that you will see at least 6 of us in the future. I know that YOU and your ranch will be a part of our conversation for a long, long time. Thank you again.
