MLD Deer Season Starts October 1!
MLD Deer Season Starts October 1!
By remaining true to our values of family, tradition, and stewardship, we are able to offer every hunter the opportunity to experience an unforgettable whitetail deer hunt.
Roy and Pam have spent their lives making Hindes Ranch the epitome of a working & hunting ranch in South Texas. They have passed their knowledge and hard work onto their son and son-in-law so that they can spend their time enjoying the fruits of their labor.
Roy used to guide hunts on the ranch, but he now prefers to spend his time tracking deer across Texas with his deer tracking dogs.
When you book the Whitetail Deer Hunting Package, Pam will be on site to make sure everyone is well fed and ready for the next day.
When you stay with us, you are one of us.
Pam and Roy Hindes
Hindes Ranch is a family business. Your guides aren’t just locals, they are family. Literally.
Cuatro grew up on the ranch, learning from his father and grandfather how to work with not only the animals but also the land. As the co-manager of the ranch, he has applied the lessons of stewardship, animal management, and respect for all God’s creatures to create the amazing Hindes Ranch whitetail herd.
While he had always been an avid South Texas hunter, John also managed his uncle’s ranch in Carrizo Springs until he joined the Hindes family in 2003. Since then he has been on the ranch working with both the cattle and whitetail deer herds. Knowledgeable and resourceful, John knows how to make your hunt successful and memorable.
"The Hindes' were pioneers, understanding before most the need to protect their deer herd with a high fence so their deer could live to their full potential back in the 70’s." - D. Richards
This land has been in the Hindes family for 7 generations. Since 1924, The Hindes Ranch has been a working cattle ranch, sprawling almost 9,000 acres.
"Big" Roy Hindes had always been ahead of his time. He noticed that some of his dogs were more attuned to tracking wounded deer than others. By selectively breeding his more talented dogs, he created the current strain used by the Hindes family to track deer across Texas, 13 generations strong.
In 1973, "Big" Roy Hindes was one of the early adopters of high-fence ranching. He knew this meant that the deer population on the land would either need to be removed or managed. He chose to start an intense management program and raise deer for hunting on the ranch.
A true pioneer in both ranching and hunting, "Big" Roy Hindes' legacy lives on in his dogs, the land he loved, and his family.

Our first hunter was Billy Patterson from Mississippi in 1978.
Here he is with "Big" Roy Hindes on the ranch on one of his early hunts. Billy hunted with us for 32 years.
Start a tradition with us by joining us on Hindes Ranch for an authentic whitetail deer hunting experience in South Texas.
A pillar of our business is stewardship of the land and the animals that live on it. We strongly believe that when we take care of the land our animals graze and live on, we are taking care of our business, our guests, and our legacy.
We use a combination of rotational grazing, high-fenced pasture control, high protein feed supplementation, removing poor genetic strains, and controlled burning. We also consult and collaborate with wildlife biologists to keep the land thriving with bio-diversity, both plant and animal.
Not only do whitetail deer thrive on the ranch, but also Wild Rio Grande Turkey.
Hindes Ranch differentiates itself from other South Texas hunting ranches in that all of our whitetail deer are born and raised on the ranch. This makes them TRUE native whitetail deer.
By continuing our tradition of animal and land management we are able to offer superior whitetail deer hunts and memorable experiences to every hunter.
Are you looking to improve the genetics of your herd on your property? Some years we have partnered with landowners through the TTT Program and the TPWD.
Hindes Ranch is a perfect place to host your next exclusive workshop. Whether you are photographing wildlife, landscapes, or plants, our ranch has an abundance of beauty waiting to be captured on camera.
