Welcome to Buena Vista Ranch! We are an authentic Mexican ranch, family-owned and operated for over 4 generations. The ranch covers over 100,000 acres in hunting property and is located 150 miles into Mexico south west from Eagle Pass, TX. You can choose to hunt with a rifle or a bow, and we’ll provide you with your own guide. Hunting can be done by spot and stock, high-rack, or horseback. We offer many all-inclusive hunting packages that will give you a hunt of a lifetime.
Rancho Buena Vista will provide you with 3 meals per day, snacks and beverages for the hunting trip. After the day of hunting, you’ll come back to the lodge where you can sit by the warm fireplace and share your hunting stories with your family, buddy or your new friends at the ranch.
Rancho Buena Vista's Lodge can provide hospitality up to 3 hunters and companions. Lodge provides a living room, dining room, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. The owner of the ranch will be on the premises at all times to personally assure you the finest possible hunt.
Ranch Buena Vista's Hunting Information
We currently offer Big Game hunts on the ranch including: Crooki Mule Deer, Carmen Mountain white-tail deer, and American
Bison all which are free-range. We currently have the #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7 and #8 ranked non-typical carmen white-tail deer on the
books for SCI, as well as the # 5, #6, #8 and #10 typical carmen mtn whitetail, and #1 ranked typical with bow.l
Elevation on Rancho Buena Vista starts at 4,600 feet and temperatures range from the high 20's to mid 80's. Buena Vista Ranch
is divided into three different types of habitat: low grasslands, desert, and mountainous regions. Bison are most often found
grazing on grasslands or on desert type areas which makes them a challenge to hunt. Crooki mule deer are most often found
in desert region, and the carmen mtn white-tail deer are found on mountaineos region.
Ground transportation to the ranch, from the Eagle Pass, TX border is included in the hunting package fee. We also offer air
service in a single engine cessna from Piedras Negras, Coahuila (Eagle Pass's border) to the ranch round-trip. Only two
passengers may travel at a time per-trip on the cessna.
We will also take care and provide all necessary mexican hunting licenses, as well as paperwork for weapon transportation if desired. Our main concern is to provide a hassle free experience, and a hunt of a life-time on Buena Vista Ranch.
Hunting package includes:
Rancho Buena Vista has had a management program since 1996. The management program consisted of harvesting no more than 10 trophy bucks per-year on 70,000 acres, which consisted of 5 trophy crooki mule deer, and 5 carmen mountain whitetail deer. This management program has been enforced until present with some slight modifications.
The ranch is currently being managed by a wildlife and fisheries biologist from Texas A&M University, who is working full-time on the ranch. He is in charge of predator control, habitat restoration, water management, wildlife management, and he is also in charge of the hunting business. He'll transport the hunters to the ranch, guide them to a trophy buck, and make sure they have a hunt of a lifetime.
