ABOUT THE LAND & LODGE

Property description:
Independence Ranch is located in scenic South Central Texas, 75 miles southeast of Austin. South Texas hog hunts are unique. Mesquite trees, varied game, wild swamps, amazing big blue skys. And lets not forget the Hogs! They are runnin' amuck down here. We need your help! Hunting in Texas at Independence Ranch puts you deep in the heart of Texas. The Alamo, San Antonio Riverwalk and historic Gonzales are all nearby to visit. Hunting Environment Part of the Post Oak Savanna forest area, early settlers called this area "Cross-Timbers" which was a cross of oak forest and prairie grassland. Mesquite Trees dominate the ranch and provide food and cover for wildlife including quail, dove, raven, turkey, mallard duck, white-tail and mule deer, ground squirrel, prairie dog, cottontail, jackrabbit, skunk, peccary (javelina), coyote, feral hogs and Mexican raccoon. Our Ranch Animals Our ranch homes a wide variety of different exotic animals including Whitetail Deer, Ram, Axis Deer, Elk, Red Stag, Ibex, Sika Deer, Fallow Buck, Black Buck, and more! Not all the animals at the ranch are available for hunting.
Lodging Description:
Everything you need to relax before and after a good hunt! Hunting trips in Texas can be tough on even experienced hunters. Boar hunting trips take a lot of energy. After a full day & long night of hog hunting, sit back, relax at our amazing hunting lodge with comfortable chairs, cable tv, and delicious meals and desserts. Our lodge is open 24 hours. Free drinks, pool, table games and our gift shop is always available. The Hunting Lodge: Lazy Boy Recliners Big Screen TVs Pool Tables Coffee & Free Drinks Gift Shop Delicious Meals When checking into your Hog Hunt you have the option to upgrade to a private cabin. All rooms come with single bunk beds, heating and air conditioning. Most have porches and railings, we made ourselves, from locally sourced wood. We have a full service bath house with warm water for private showers and bathroom stalls. There is a wood burning stove available for those colder winter nights. Our main lodge comes with ample dining chairs and tables, lazy boy chairs, cable tv, pool, foosball, and an air hockey table. Coffee is made available in the morning with a variety of creamers and sweeteners. Drinks provided range from ice & water, Lemonade, Ice tea, Sweet tea, and gatorade. We have a full service kitchen, bbq and full-time chef to attend to your needs. For the lady hunters, we have private bathrooms and shower facilities. Throughout your stay at Independence Ranch expect to see a myriad of different wildlife including Red Stag Elk, Blackbuck, Axis Deer and even a big ole' Water Buffalo. Don't try to pet that animal. He's getting grumpy in his old age. We also have various hog hunt dogs roaming around looking for love and attention and a kitty cat aptly named "kitty".
