RESERVE RANCH with its one-of-a-kind Hacienda sitting on the high bank of the Nueces River, is a magnificent hunting area encompassing five square miles.



Encompassing five square miles of some of the best habitat in South Texas, the Reserve Ranch is bordered by two and a half miles of one of the best stretches on the Nueces River. Protected for decades the river with its deep, Gin clear pools of water rippling over river-washed stones is home to largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, Guadalupe Bass, along with a variety of panfish such as redbreast sunfish, rock bass, green sunfish, and Rio Grande perch. Additionally, Channel and Blue Catfish are found in the river as well. Fishermen will clamor to this destination as it offers untouched fishing for both fly and Spincast sportsmen.

About RESERVE RANCH

]John Ed Stepan

Owner – Reserve Ranch
As an avid sportsman and Adventurer, I have hunted 33 countries on five continents including a Shikar to Nepal for Blue Sheep and a twenty-day trek into China’s Inner Mongolia for Gansu Argali. That coupled with over 800 days spent on the African Continent comprising of 35 Safaris, I bring my 36 years of experience in International Hunting to the Reserve Ranch. I have learned from every Expedition and honed the edge of what clients want and expect. The vast experiences I have been Blessed with allow me to bring the ultimate adventure to my clients who visit the Reserve Ranch.
I look forward to sharing my stories and experiences with you at the ranch. See you by the fire!

Wingshooting

Reserve-Ranch-12.jpg


At the RESERVE RANCH, we offer a variety of wing shooting opportunities to consider.
Our Dove hunting takes place at flyways along the Nueces River, alongside of ponds and adjacent to planted fields. We can accommodate groups of up to twenty on a typical day.
South Texas has been known for outstanding Bobwhite Quail hunting, and the Reserve Ranch is no exception.

Upland Game Bird Shooting

In addition to the Bobwhite Quail, we offer hunts for Pheasant and Chukar. The hunts will take place in various locations across the ranch where the native brush has been sculpted for grasses to flourish.
Each hunting rig will have trained pointers and handlers to provide the hunters with a most enjoyable experience shooting for Bobwhite Quail.

Rio Grande Wild Turkey

The turkey hunts take place during the mating season (Spring) while the gobblers are in search of hens. The Reserve Ranch has over 2.5 miles of Nueces River frontage and this riparian area is an ideal habitat for the Wild Turkey. This is an exciting hunt that takes place in a beautiful time of year as the pastures come back to life from Winter.

Might I suggest to get your website link set up in the signature line to make things easier. Maybe run an AH special to get a hunting report going (me,me,me) :ROFLMAO:.

Thanks @buck wild, the signature line with photos and logo is a live link, just click on it and it will take you to my website.

We're still getting our feet on the ground but there will be some specials coming. Its just too early this year but maybe an AH Quail hunt next year around DSC might be an option.

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex
