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.
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.
