The Schneider Ranch offers some of the best whitetail deer, turkey and feral hog hunting in Central Texas. The ranch is located in the scenic Texas Hill Country and is bordered on the South by the San Saba River. This part of the river has a limestone base and is spring fed.
The ranch is under a Level 3 Wildlife Management Plan with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and has been under intense management for whitetail deer for ten years. This has included select harvesting of animals and year round corn and free choice protein feeding. Also, the ranch is part of the San Saba Wildlife Management Association, which includes 25 landowners and 40,000 acres. This has resulted in a tremendous increase in the age, size and quality of the whitetail deer herd. Numerous bucks have been harvested the past four years that grossed between 120-170 B & C. Some of these bucks are included in the photo gallery, as digital cameras have been strategically placed at each feeder. Pictures of several this years bucks can be seen in the photo gallery.
We offer rifle or bow hunting for trophy whitetail deer, management bucks, does, turkeys and feral hogs. Twelve rifle blinds and six bow blinds have been strategically placed on the ranch.
This is a unique hunting opportunity, as the Schneider Ranch has not been offered for any type of commercial hunting for eleven years.
"At Schneider Ranch you are treated like you are the only hunter there, and the accommodations, food, guides and total experience is excellent. Oh yes, the hunting. Below is a picture of one of the four Pope & Young bucks that I have taken from Schneider Ranch in the past three years."
"We have been to the Schneider Ranch the last two years and have had a great time and lots of success. The hunting was only matched by the accommodations and hospitality of Bill and his staff."
