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 & Devils River Photos Here.
The Consuelo Ranch is located just south of Ozona Texas in Val Verde county which is 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.
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 Mule deer are on the Ranch along with a healthy population of Javelina, Quail, and of course Predators. Rams upwards of 33" and Mule Deer in the 140" to 160"range have regularly been harvested off this Texas Hunting Ranch. A 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 (when it has water) nearby to camp and who knows you may even see an Elk or Oryx passing through. This Hunting Ranch contains a fair road system although a high clearance vehicle with good tires is a must, 4x4 is highly recommended with a Jeep being best to get into the most remote areas.The East side of the ranch is primitive with the only roads being 2 tracks up washes/drainage's and steeper hills. A good pair of walking boots, a jeep, or even a horse is your best means of transportation. Self-guided hunters need to bring a chainsaw to cut down some wood for the fire pit, and always leave more than you use please. Hunters can fly into El Paso and rent a vehicle, meet us in Van Horn, or airport pick up is available for a small fee. The ranch is an easy 3-hour drive from El Paso international airport.
We will offer guided, semi guided, and self-guided Hunts on this Ranch. Driving and long distance glassing will be done to locate animals along with a combination of hiking, hunting over or near corn/protein feeders and near water. Hunters must be in good physical condition or be very patient and watch trails or hunt near feed. Shots upwards of 400 plus yards can be expected on larger game. We will free choice feed year round and have several watering areas in place. The Ranch is available to lease for mule deer rifle season for a medium sized group. Only mature animals may be harvested and the deer population is on the rebound so this is a true trophy lease and not a "shooters" lease. We are able to offer self-guided hunts for that very reason.
W.T.H.O. has access to several properties across the west and central part of the state. Due to the various ranches it is sometimes hard to keep everything up to date and current on our website and social media. If a ranch description is not given please give us a call and I will gladly give you the details of the property. Also combined with the various properties we do hunt not all hunts are listed or possible packages, if you do not see something your looking for just ask and if we do not offer it we will gladly point you in the right direction.
There is no lodging available onsite for the 4D South ranch but less than 30 minutes away is Lajitas Resort to the east and Presidio 25 minutes to the west. Very limited controlled hunting is done in the State Park making the ranch an ideal location for quality hunting. Nearest airport would be El Paso or Midland. Due to the short Texas Mule Deer season we do offer a season lease on this property rather than guided hunts. There is a healthy Mule Deer & Javelina population for the area. Property size is roughly 1,500 acres for mule deer & javelina hunts.
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. Please call us to talk about the specifics for each one of these ranches.
The Hueco property is located in the furthest western part of Texas in the Hueco mountains 1 hour east of El Paso in Hudspeth county. It is a large property totaling over 100 sections of land with varied terrain containing high desert mountains over a mile high in elevation to the lower flat lands and sand dune country. There is a healthy population of Mule Deer, Aoudad, and Javelina on the property. On occasion we also offer Blue's & Gambles Quail hunts.

Terrain includes larger mountains with 2500ft to 3000ft elevation changes, broken hills and large Greasewood flats. There are 2 lodging locations on the property roughly 20 miles apart to rotate areas hunted on the ranch. The road system is excellent throughout the ranch with hundreds of miles of roads in place allowing for lots of area to be glassed. There are also plenty of areas to hike into off the beaten path which is best for the Aoudad hunting on this property.
The ranch is on the Managed Lands Deer Program allowing for an extended season which gives us the opportunity to hunt Mule deer during the rut. There is a great population of deer on the ranch with multiple year round water and feed locations in place. Aoudad flourish in the higher country with good numbers of Javelina living in the arroyos. Single hunters or groups are welcome if available for all of these hunts.

We will only be hunting a handful of Mule Deer & Aoudad on this ranch. All other game is Protected under the specific and unique ranch rules. An established primitive campsite is in place or hunters can stay offsite on the 4D N. house for a fee. This is a physically challenging property and hunters must be in good physical condition.

The 4D North Ranch is located along the Rio Grande river south of Van Horn Texas and the Indio mountains totaling nearly 30,000 acres. Constant improvements are being done to the ranch house with new added WiFi recently and more water and feed locations. The ranch has various terrain from large flats, fallow fields, high desert hills and small mountains with large bluffs going down to the river. There is a great Aoudad population, Wild Hogs, Javelina, Excellent Quail numbers and we are working on improving the Mule deer herd. Semi guided and fully guided hunts are offered on this ranch. Location is roughly 2hrs and 45minutes from the El Paso airport. The ranch house will sleep 10 comfortably. In the near future our hunters on the Indio ranch will be able to add lodging to there hunt and stay here as these properties border each other.
Most hunts our clients will have the properties to themselves with no other hunters unless booking 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.
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 so choose to do. 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 for the latest ranches and specifics on each one.
Due to the large area the property encompasses most hunts will be done safari style meaning driving in ranch vehicles and glassing the hillsides for game. Some hiking may be required more so on the Aoudad hunts. Year round protein feed is fed on the property with multiple water guzzlers stationed throughout the ranch providing water year round including in dryer conditions. Typically only 2 Trophy Mule Deer hunts are offered and only a handful of Management Buck hunts. Combo hunts are available for Mule Deer & Aoudad. Plan on hunting all day while on most hunts weather permitting.
