Van Horn/Barrow Hunting Ranch
Van Horn/Barrow Hunting Ranch is located 1-hour Southwest of Van Horn Texas in northern Presidio County and this Texas Hunting Ranch has it all. High desert hills, larger arroyos, small chalk hills, and even Rio Grande River frontage. There are a few natural springs located throughout the ranch drawing in and holding wildlife. This property is 15,000 acres where both self-guided and guided hunts will be offered on a limited basis. More Photos of this ranch Here.
Van Horn Ranch
To find this ranch on a Texas map, you start by looking at Valentine Texas and draw a line straight West until you hit the Rio Grande then go a little North and that is roughly the center of the Ranch. A fair amount of Aoudad and recovering yet strictly managed Mule deer herd are on the Ranch along with a healthy population of Javelina and Quail. Rams upwards of 34" and Mule Deer in the 130" to 160"range have regularly been harvested off this property. An ever-growing population of Hogs inhabit the river area and offer a challenging hunt along the thick brush near the river. Hunts on this ranch are very affordable and we can accommodate larger groups for most hunts. There is also some great cat fishing in the river nearby to camp. The property contains a fair road system although a high clearance vehicle with good tires is a must, a 4x4 is needed.
There is a campsite with lights, running water and firepit included to use on all hunts or a simple rustic cabin available for a fee. An additional cabin is also available near the main headquarters for parties of 1 to 2 people, maybe 3 for a fee. Meals can be added to ANY hunt, POR.
Sierra Blanca Ranch
The Sierra Blanca ranch is nearly 300,000 acres, yes almost 470 square miles of land to hunt! Located in far west Texas about 1 hour east of the El Paso airport to the main ranch gate. There are some of the highest peaks in Texas on the property and a great road system throughout the entire ranch. It is a managed ranch for all wildlife, and it is on the MLD program giving us an extended season for Mule Deer allowing us to hunt them in the rut.
This is a great property to host a variety of group hunts with several lodging locations allowing us to cater to your specific needs. Of course, single hunters are always welcome.
Sierra Blanca Hunt Info
Aoudad are hunted up in the high peaks and mountains on the ranch, so you still need to be in good physical shape for this ranch. Mule deer are hunted in the flat lands and hills mostly by covering lots of ground with vehicles and glassing to locate a mature trophy quality buck. We also offer Javelina and predator hunts on this property and occasionally hunts for quail.
As a bonus you can add on an hour (or several) of target and predator shooting via the onsite helicopter for an additional fee. You can find more pictures of the ranch under the link under the 4D North ranch page, I have combined most of them being they are all very similar properties in close proximity to one another.
Van Horn Lower Hunting Ranch
This ranch borders the Sawyer on its south side and is roughly 3,500 acres in size. It does also border the Rio Grande where we will offer a few limited Hog & Javelina hunts. If you walked in, fishing is included on all our hunts here. There is a jeep trail that will get you well into the interior of the ranch and several feed or water sites that we maintain year-round.
There is a huntable population of Aoudad and a recovering mule deer population here along with excellent numbers of Quail. Javelina & Hogs are in good numbers near the river part of the property.
Camping is allowed at the designated site although it is primitive at this time so, please come well prepared.
Cornudas Ranch *New*
Located 1 hour east of El Paso and right along the New Mexico border this 70,000-acre ranch has a vast mix of terrain. From near vertical peaks, small mountains and rolling hills down to creosote flats. The property is well watered with nearly 100 miles of water lines, dirt tanks and water troughs scattered throughout the property. There is a good road system throughout. Elevations range anywhere from 4,000 ft up to 5,600 ft on the property.
A healthy population of Aoudad, Pronghorn Antelope, Mule Deer, and some Gemsbok Oryx call the ranch home. Limited hunts are offered for Pronghorn and Gemsbok will be on a trophy fee basis until further notice. Combo hunts are a possibility.
Trophy Quality will be just as good as any of our other ranches and the Pronghorn will be of great quality as well. Mule deer hunts may be offered in the future. More Photos of the ranch HERE.
This ranch is best suited for those able & willing to hike and put on the miles due to the very limited road accessibility. It borders the Van Horn Ranch to the south & VH Lower to the north. Property size is approximately 7,500 acres with Rio Grande River frontage. Aoudad hunters must be ready to hunt entirely on foot. It is located 50 minutes south of Van Horn. There is no lodging onsite currently or any amenities, but we are working to provide that to our hunters soon. We will also offer a very limited number of Mule deer hunts each season if the population allows. New water and feed stations are in place on the property. Mule deer hunts will be DIY option or a general season lease.

A beautiful 30,000-acre ranch located roughly 30 minutes south of Alpine Texas near Elephant Mountain WMA. There is a great road system throughout the ranch allowing for better accessibility and easier hiking. There are rougher terrain areas to hike into as well, so this ranch is good for anyone. Easy access right off the highway. As of current we will only be offering Aoudad hunts on this ranch with a maximum of 2 hunters at a time unless otherwise discussed.
Other game you may see on the ranch are Mule Deer, Elk, Javelina and Predators. Guests are welcome for a daily fee. For pictures of the ranch click HERE. This is a fairly new ranch so we will be adding more pictures as we get them.

The Consuelo Ranch is just south of Ozona Texas in Val Verde County, known for big Trophy Aoudad just as Presidio County is. Val Verde county also offers great Trophy Whitetail Deer Hunts, Turkey, and Exotic hunting. Rancho Consuelo has a good road system, multiple protein feeders that Aoudad and Whitetail feed at frequently and a comfortable newly built lodge with satellite TV and Wi-Fi. There is even an ice machine to keep your ice chests topped off for cold beverages and to keep your trophies cool while transporting home.
Consuelo Hunting Season
We will hunt here from September through early March for Aoudad and Whitetail during the regular general season. Hog hunts are available year-round. A combo hunt is a possibility if available. Terrain on the ranch varies from deep canyons, big valley floors, and small mesas which is an Aoudad and Deer paradise. Plant life consists of varying Cacti, Cedar, Oaks, Mesquite and Grass. The Brush and Cactus on the ranch make for good stalking conditions although they also make it hard to spot the Aoudad at times. The floor is very rocky and most of it is loose; a good walking stick will do you some good out here. Consuelo Ranch Photos Here.
Consuelo Hunting Trips
Most hunts our clients will have the properties to themselves with no other hunters unless they book with your group. These Hunting Trips will only be offered as guided packages. Group-style hunts still offer very high success rates (nearly 100%) and the ranch is large enough to support a group of up to 6 hunters easily. Rancho Consuelo totals over 8,000 acres and with all the big canyons, hills, and valleys and it hunts like a ranch twice its size. Rancho Consuelo is a great choice for the hunter wanting to hike or sit in a stand.
Devils River Properties
As of current we have 3 properties along the Devils River located a short drive from Comstock Tx. 1 offers easy access right off the highway while the other 2 are a 45-minute trek in. These properties are specifically hunted for Aoudad only for WTHO and the numbers in this area are excellent. You will typically see 30 to 50+ a day on these ranches. This is canyon country with broken semi open terrain with elevation changes of 400ft to 700ft on average. There is a good road system on these properties, and they are very similar in quality. The Consuelo Lodge can be utilized if hunting the Devils River #2 property.
For those needing a milder terrain hunt (still a challenge) this is the ideal area to look into. There are no Javelina included on these hunts but there are a few feral hogs which if seen are included in your hunt. These will be guided hunts with an occasional semi-guided hunt offered for small to medium-sized groups.

Directions to Consuelo and Devils River
These properties are located right outside Juno Texas (small dot on a Texas map) about 45 minutes to Ozona. Hunters can fly into San Angelo and rent a vehicle, or you can meet us near the Ranch. From San Angelo you can expect about a 2-hour drive to the ranch. Airport pick up is available for a small fee. You can also fly into San Antonio which is roughly 3-hours from the ranches in this area. We do have a Taxidermist available in Sonora who can pick up your Trophy from the ranch directly if you choose to do so. I also have multiple ranches on the Devils River which are a short drive from the Rancho Consuelo that also offer great Aoudad hunting opportunities. Please inquire about the latest ranches and specifics on each one.

There are stands and feeders in place to Javelina & Hog hunt over. The Aoudad like to live in the rough country so expect a physical challenge on this property. On occasion we offer a Mule deer hunt or two here and although the population is not high the potential trophy quality is for those that are patient.
Agua Fria Ranch
Agua Fria is located 45 minutes south of Alpine Tx to the ranch turn off and borders Big Bend State Park on one side. This is a very scenic yet rugged area.

There is some great hunting on the ranch and it is only improving with our year round feed program in place along with predator control. Call me anytime for more information about the ranch.
