Located in one of the greatest native bobwhite quail counties in Texas is the Rancho La Luna. As you enter the ranch, you will immediately understand why this ranch produces such great populations of quail and why the ranch’s guests hope to plan their next trip the moment they leave. With tremendous stands of dense bunch grasses among the scattered native brush, you can imagine the long days spent on the quail rig watching the dogs work the wind. Although the ranch is centered around quail hunting, the owners have built a wonderful population of exotic animals and whitetail deer to enjoy from a hunting and viewing perspective. From quail and dove to exotics and whitetail, this ranch has it all for high-end enjoyment and entertainment.
As you enter the ranch, you will understand why quail is king on this property. The ranch is located on the southwestern end of the South Texas sand sheet and has the soil for great populations of bobwhites. On a ranch this size, you could hunt the pastures on a weekly rotation throughout the season. Although the quail are paramount on this property, the current owner very much enjoys hunting safari style and has breeding populations of excellent exotic species. The ranch supports healthy numbers of eland, wildebeest, gemsbok, scimitar, blesbok, blackbuck, addax, warthog, fallow, axis, nilgai, zebra, bison and sable. With this mix of species, you could hunt them commercially for a source of revenue, trap and sell live animals, or utilize them for recreational hunting. Combining all the above is possible with the bonus of photo and viewing safaris. The deer population on the ranch is of high-quality genetics and is kept at a low density to support larger antler growth.
For further ranch recreation, the ranch has a very healthy population of turkey and other native game species, such as javelina and predators. Dove hunting around the food plots and water holes is fantastic on this ranch. Each year, dove and big game plots are planted to rotate fields and have exceptional dove hunting.
The compound on Rancho La Luna was built to entertain larger groups of guests who like to enjoy the camp life after a long day of hunting. The four living structures in the compound are built with a hacienda-style adobe/stucco exteriors. The main home is a three bedroom/two bath with a larger kitchen to cook for the compound. The Tejas Casita is a master suite structure with two private master suites with kitchens in each. South Casita #1 is a two-bedroom/one-bath casita with a kitchen and master bath, while South Casita #2 is a one-bedroom/one-bath master Casita with a kitchen. Lastly, the “Barn” is a unique central entertainment area built for dining, games, and camaraderie. The compound has two main fire pit areas that all the hunters enjoy after a long day of chasing quail and big game. There is another area of the compound that has been set up as an electric supply hub for future expansion.
