2 1/2 Day Dove Hunt

Ranger Creek Ranch

The historic ranch is a place where people come to get away from their fast paced lives and settle down for a few days of relaxation, incredible meals and thrilling activities. Here at Ranger Creek Ranch, we offer all of the modern day lodging amenities while keeping the rustic and nostalgic feel of ranch life.

In order to extend the farming and ranching operation and as a means to introduce the public to this exquisite region of the state of Texas, Ranger Creek Ranch was founded in 1990 by Joyce and Gaylon Scott and their daughter Ranell Scott. Ranger Creek Ranch’s roots are as deep as the mesquite trees that grow upon it. Parts of the ranch have been in the family since 1900.

In the beginning, the ranch was made available for private and corporate hunting leases and day Hunts, as well as private parties and corporate retreats. The operation ran from the office and often the kitchen table in the old ranch house.

In 1998, as a result of increasing demand, the family decided to renovate and rebuild a rustic old barn in grand Texas style. The resulting structure is now a fine example of grand Texas hunting style and purpose. Ranger Creek Ranch is happy to share this fine lodge and the surrounding land with discriminating guests from all parts of the world.

Ranger Creek Ranch is one of the most diversified ranches in Texas for Texas Hunts & Adventures. Almost any outdoor activity is possible within the borders of the ranch. Today and going forward, Ranger Creek Ranch offers some of the best Waterfowl Hunting and Dove Hunting in the United States. Further, the canyons, cedar breaks, and mesquite flats offer Wild Hog Hunting, Whitetail Deer Hunting and free range Aoudad Sheep.

Even Further, Ranger Creek Ranch offers some of the best outdoor adventures in the nation. Ranger Creek Ranchoffers walking and riding trails through endless miles of scenic canyons, beautiful spring fed creeks, and acres of grass land. On these trails, our guests have the opportunity to see exquisite and elusive wildlife, incredible landscapes, beautiful foliage, and breath taking star filled nights.

Our family invites you to join us. Come out, hunt, break a sweat and cool off in a spring fed pond, relax on the balcony watch the sun go down, breathe the fresh air and settle in to a slower paced life.

Ranger Creek Ranch is one of the few ranches in Texas that actually has a year round habitat management program specifically for the benefit of the dove population. With good management, cooperative weather and planted crops of milo, wheat, and sunflowers we have created a haven for migrating dove colonies and our dove harvest numbers prove it. The majority of these Dove Hunts don’t last long. With statistics like that you have to come out and see it for yourself! We will let the birds speak for us.
