Double G Ranch is located in Lavaca County, Texas, approximately 2-1/2 hours
from Houston Hobby or Houston Intercontinental airport. The ranch consists
of approximately 2,660 acres under a high fence, which was constructed in
1984. The ranch has been under a management program since 1984, including
a wildlife biologist. High protein pellets are fed on demand from gravity
feeders. There are a total of 27 protein feeders or
1 per 100 acres.
hunts have been available since 1991. After the first 4 years of trophy
hunts, we have had several repeat hunters who have harvested deer scoring in
the 160's. Wanting to ensure these and all of our hunters the opportunity
to exceed the 160's, we met with our biologist and were informed that if we
increased the age of a deer to be harvested from 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 years of age
and added food plots with Tecomate Lab Lab, we would soon be harvesting deer
in the 190's to 200's. We immediately implemented both programs and have
since added more Lab Lab food plots and increased the harvest age of the
trophy deer to 6-1/2. The highest scoring deer harvested to
date was a 19 point buck that scored 193-6/8 B and C. The widest deer was
25-1/2". The longest drop tine was 7".
Hunting is done both safari
style from a Jeep and from Box
Feeders and/or Oat Patches during the Primary rut which usually extends
from as early as October 1st. through as late as Thanksgiving. We are in
a Special program with Texas Parks & Wildlife that enables us to hunt
with a rifle
October 1st.. Another benefit to the hunter is they do not have to use a
from their Hunting License. Only a special
tag from us which requires only the Hunting license number is required.
Each hunter has a guide whose duty it is to determine the age of the
deer. All guides are versed in scoring deer.
