Expert Wildlife Management for Excellent Hunting and Fishing

Medicine Mounds Ranch offers a wide variety of wildlife for hunting and fishing. Guided hunts can be set up for large species such as whitetail deer and mule deer, as well as for birds, including dove, quail, sandhill crane, and several species of ducks. In addition, eight tanks are stocked with various fish, including Tiger Bass.

Wildlife management is an important part of Medicine Mounds Ranch. We work with Texas Parks and Wildlife in the Land Management Assistance program, which provides technical guidance "to support management and stewardship of native wildlife and wildlife habitats on private lands in Texas." This program is voluntary but crucial to the habitat management and conservation of indigenous species. For more, see the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

For information about scheduling a hunt or stay at the ranch, please contact us. Medicine Mounds Ranch has lodgings to fit every need, including beautifully-appointed historic downtown building loft conversions, a new construction bunkhouse at the heart of the ranch headquarters, and more secluded bunkhouse accommodations. Capacities range from five to fifteen in each location. Managed hunts include trophy buck, dove, turkey, sandhill crane, mule deer (doe), and more. We also can accommodate those exploring the beauty and history that Hardeman County has to offer. Contact us for more detailed information.
