4D Ranch

 Lodging Now Available
 
 
Aden Lasseter & Lance Clawson with 2 nice rams  33+ inches 10/17/09
 
We have gained access to this very special ranch in Presidio county Texas which borders  Big Bend State Park. It has not been hunted in over 10 years prior to this year (2009) and there are many trophy aoudad and  a few trophy mule deer on the property. Very limmitted bookings will be taken each year.

This ranch is a no fenced  100% free ranging hunt. Hunters must be in good physical shape for aoudad hunts although we can make arrangements for anyone wanting to come out. Aoudad live on the highest of ridges and rim rock where they feel safe. To get to those points on the mountains can take 3 to 4 hours of hiking at a time so expect a full day of hunting.

There is plenty of information available on aoudad sheep hunting in west Texas available on the internet. Feel free to ask me any questions and I can point you in the right direction or a simple internet search will turn up plenty of information. Each month has its advantages to hunting aoudad.
 
October/Early November is the rut and seeing large numbers of aoudad is typical although the weather can be warm making hiking a bit tougher. This is your best bet at a record breaker.
 
December/January offers cold weather keeping herds moving and split up making them easier to stalk and hiking is much easier. Aoudad are also grazing more as everything is dry making them easier to spot.
 
February and early March ewes are birthing bringing herds down lower on the mountain  making it a much easier hunt physically. Now winds can pick up this time of year so long shots can not be easily made.
 
 
 
Non Hunting Guests are $60 per day on guided hunts.
 

 
4D Ranch (6 Miles East of Redford Texas)
 
Bookings are very limitted. Please email me for available dates.
 

Keith Jamison and His Ewe Above

 
 The 4D ranch has many miles of pristine west Texas landscape surrounded by Big Bend State Park on 3 sides and 1 large private ranch on the other. Gently rolling hills and washes are on the lower part of the ranch while the upper part of the ranch is comprised of very large hills (small mountains), 200 to 1,000 foot rock faces, and rim rock where aoudad sheep flourish.
If you book a guided hunt with us please expect to "rough it", very nice lodging is now available for a bit extra. We set up a spike camp (tent and shade) with either solar lights/lanterns, campfire cooked meals and will be sleeping in the great outdoors! Many hunters agree that this only adds to the experience of the hunt.
 
 
Big Aoudad Taking A Nap

Strict management on our mule deer herd is improving genetics and the over all herd size year to year. Check back with us for updated pictures and information.
