APRIL 2009 UPDATE: Hunting pressure is light on our Ranch, so there is always a lot of game. This year we have a brand new furnished cabin in place for the enjoyment of our hunters. We completed the 5 hunts we wished to take for Nov-Dec 2008, and conducted 2 other hunts in January 2009. Everyone had good success this season, and all went away happy with their hunt. We do still have availability of exotic hunts, spring turkey hunts, and meat and exotic hunts for Axis, Aoudad, and Wild Hogs. Exotic hunts may take place any month of the year outside regular seasons. Unique to our WT packages is the fact that we allow substitution of axis does for whitetails at no extra cost, thereby increasing hunting opportunity during regular WT season. There are always a few nice trophy WT bucks. Axis, aoudad and feral hogs also may be taken in addition to any regular season packages. One exception is that axis does may not be taken from February 1 through June 30th in an effort to somewhat avoid the major axis fawn season. Fine record book aoudad rams with 28" to over 30" horns come to the mountain feeders on a daily basis, ranging freely in and out of our ranch, since there are no high fences and feeding continues year-round. Rio Grande turkeys roost in the pecan trees along the river, and large flocks come to the feeders. Beautiful record book size Axis bucks in "hard horn" are observed throughout the year, but mostly in spring and summer, which is the major axis breeding season. Unlike native whitetail, some axis bucks in hard horn are observed all during the year. The loud "braying" of axis bucks resounds through the river bottom and valley when they are in rut, and they do sound gigantic! Hogs, ranging in size from piglets to trophies over 200 pounds, are seen regularly; free hogs come with every booked hunt, and you more than likely will get a chance at one. WE ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT OVER-HUNT OUR PLACE WITH EXCESSIVE BOOKINGS, SO CALL SOON IF YOU WANT TO OBTAIN ONE OF THE LIMITED NUMBERS OF HUNTS.
Call 512-756-1918 to inquire about hunts, ask for John or Linda.

Bring your rifle or your bow (and your camera) and come hunt with us! We have year-round hunting packages available, whether you are interested in native whitetails, turkeys, or exotics such as Axis deer, Aoudad Sheep or wild hogs. J&L's Nooney Paw-Paw Mountain Ranch is remotely located in the beautiful Southwest Texas Hill Country, not far from Rocksprings, TX in Edwards County. The country is rugged and beautiful, with steep canyons in the "breaks" of the Edwards Plateau, where the rivers begin their flow southward to the Gulf of Mexico.

The property is bordered on the east by the clear, cool waters of the East Prong of the Nueces River and a heavily wooded pecan bottom. Because of the unique location in a sharp bend of the river, wild game of all varieties naturally gathers here, drawn by the abundant forage and social opportunities. Nooney Paw-Paw Mountain forms the west boundary, overshadowing the river bottom. Wild game frequently seen includes native whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkeys, wild hogs (Russian and feral),as well as exotic Axis deer, and Aoudad sheep. Several record book Axis bucks have been taken recently. Aoudad sheep also grow to record book sizes on the mountain side of the Ranch. There are no high fences, thereby providing a fair chase hunt. We maintain feeders and blinds to provide better chances of success. As participants in a Wildlife Management Plan with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, we do not run livestock and strive to keep the habitat as favorable to wildlife as possible. Because the environment is fragile and we want to provide maximum protection, we do not allow the use of ATV's or four-wheelers on the Ranch. We also limit hunting to only a few hunts per year, never "over hunting" the land.

As a hunter at the Ranch, you will be pretty much on your own, though we will provide assistance if requested. You will be staying in a nice new, well-equipped cabin near the house. We will show you to the blinds, provide information as to feeder times, and give advice. We always have recent videos of what we've seen at the various hunting blinds for your viewing enjoyment. Given all that, your relative skill as a hunter will largely determine your success. Because we are not a high fence ranch, we cannot guarantee a kill, but your chances should be excellent.
