What To Expect
Our Mexico hunts are all conducted over a 5-day period with lodging and meals included. Hunters can expect to be in the field all day with a break for lunch at midday. Our preferred hunting method and the tactic proven effective for this terrain is spot and stalk. However, with many water sources, we do have the ability to hunt from a ground blind, should that be the preference.
Be prepared to see roughly 30 bucks a day with 4-5 of them being at least 100” long. Average size of our bucks is between 100” – 110” with a few exceeding 120” each year. While in the field, we will be using 4-wheel drive trucks with plenty of room for guests and equipment to fit comfortably in. With a large road system and great maintenance, we can easily accommodate for all levels of hunters and all levels of fitness. Moreover, our expert guides will be there to assist along your hunting excursion, aiming to make your trip nothing less than extraordinary.

COMMON MEXICO QUESTIONS
- Cost of Tags, Permits, or Government fees?
The cost of the tags and gun permits are included in the cost ofthe hunt.
- Are locals friendly and accommodating to hunters?
The locals have been great to us. We are only on the mexico highway for about 45 min until we start out of town on dirt roads to the ranch.
- Any issues with getting trucks and trailer across the border, any permits needed.
There are no issues getting your vehicle and trailers into Mexico. You will want to have mexico insurance for your vehicle. Your insurance provider should be ableto help you.
- Can a handgun be brought into Mexico to shoot?
Handguns are not permitted. Only rifles and shotguns can be permitted to carry into Mexico
- Any challenges with getting guns back and forth?
The only issue with getting the guns back and forth is in the event there is a clerical error with the serial numbers. So make sure and triple check the serial numbers on the rifles when you send us those numbers. If the serial numbers don’t match the paper work when we get to the border then those rifles wont be able to enter.
- What’s needed to bring hides and horns back?
For the antlers and capes. We will have all of the US fish and wildlife declarations to
import the hunting trophies. We will also help you cross the border at US customs
with the trophies. The paper work is very straight forward. The only real thing that they are looking for are ticks on the capes. We clean the capes before leaving the ranch and we do have replacement capes in the event a cape does not clear inspection.
- Anything special needed to bring meat back across the border?
Frozen meat can be transported acorss the border without permits or inspection. We de-bone the meat when we are on the ranch and freeze it at the ranch house. You can take it with you or we can bring it back here, process and ship it to you after the hunt
