Overview of Texas Precision Shooting School
A safari and precision shooting school designed to improve your shooting skills with instruction from former and active Marine special-ops instructors who are experienced hunters as well! At this lodge you can choose to spend your time strictly shooting with the instructors or you can combine shooting instruction with hunting. As to the hunting aspect, species such as whitetail, Markhor, Nubian Ibex, Black buck, Axis and more are born on the ranch and live wild on 12,000 rugged and mountainous acres!
For our clients that plan to hunt in Africa, New Zealand, Alaska, South America and other destinations we highly recommend that they visit this precision shooting school combined with their safari shooting instruction. This is particularly beneficial for destinations where shooting sticks are used or natural shooting rests are used.
When considering trips that involve dangerous game animals, this is a must for preparation. Lodges all over the globe have a policy that if game animals are wounded, the rest of your hunt will surround finding this animal for a merciful hunt. If the animal is not found, you will still be responsible for paying the trophy fees. As you are aware, many of these hunts are quite expensive and you are willing to purchase the finest equipment for the hunt. It makes sense that along with purchasing the best equipment that you would also take the time to prepare with an excellent shooting school.
For groups of 8 or more, the ranch will be exclusive to your group.
Precision Shooting School:
Instructors will help you improve your shooting and/or hunting skills in realistic situations out to 500 yards. You will learn the effects that ballistics and the environment (elevation, wind, and temperature) have on your weapons and ammunition and how to compensate for those effects on our shooting ranges from 100 – 500 yards. Ranges are situated throughout the ranch and simulate the types of pressures and environments that may be encountered on a variety of hunts throughout the world.
Expect to spend a great deal of time in many challenging shooting scenarios and positions, adjusting for environmental conditions and surroundings to know when you can and more importantly cannot make the shot. You will become adept at observing your immediate surroundings and utilizing items in those surroundings to support your body position while getting ready to make a shot – old stumps, rocks, and tree limbs can be quite useful.
These courses are perfect for rifle calibers ranging from .223 to .338. Each 4-Day course fee includes five nights and four days of lodging, meals and beverages
4 Day Precision Intense Course
4 Day Precision Level II
4 day Precision and Hunt Combo

Exotic and Whitetail Hunting:
You will hunt from blinds, safari style in vehicles or on foot depending on weather, animal movements and hunter preferences. Most of the guide team grew up in the region and possess an intimate knowledge of the animals’ behaviors and habits. They recommend rifle calibers between .270 and .300 for all species on the Ranch.
The lodge has 11 very comfortable private cabins with in-suite baths, satellite television, Wi-Fi internet, and laundry facilities. Complete linen and towels are provided for you. Your meals are home cooked and hearty.
The main living area features a fully stocked bar, two flat screen TV’s, game table and numerous trophies.
The ranch is situated on over 12,000 acres of rugged hills and valleys, which are covered by a variety of oak trees, junipers and mountain laurel. Cactus blooms red and gold in the spring among an assortment of wildflowers – a breathtaking landscape, perfect for challenging hunts. The Ranch offers a wonderful retreat for corporate groups, families or individuals looking for a first class, quiet, welcoming place to hunt and relax.
The ranch provides an ideal habitat for trophy-class whitetail and wild, exotic species to thrive and grow as they would in their indigenous environments. Many of the introduced, exotic species may no longer be hunted in their native lands, and they strive to foster strong, healthy herds. The dedication to each animal’s wellbeing will be immediately evident upon observing them as they freely roam the hillsides and valleys. The Ranch’s management plan utilizes hunting as a means of conservation, and thus quotas and self-imposed limits are enforced. The lodge recommends anything between .270 and .300 caliber for all species on the ranch.
