Welcome to Winterhawk Outfitters!
Winterhawk Outfitters is located in Central Texas as offers Trophy Free-Ranging Whitetail Deer hunting, Rio Grande Turkey hunts and excellent Hog hunting.
Winterhawk Outfitters has around hunting split up on several pristine properties around Central Texas, that are used to hunt a variety of wild game, including free-ranging trophy whitetail deer, hogs and trophy boars and Rio Grande Turkey. For deer season, we have an 1100 acre of leased land in Shackleford County near Albany, Texas in North Central Texas. Albany is 34 miles northeast of Abilene, Texas and 150 miles West of Dallas north of Interstate 20. It is low fence acreage with large hills covered in mesquite trees and large oak trees. There is a creek running thru the ranch and provides good roosting areas for Rio Grande turkey.
The 1100 acres we lease borders another 1100 acre tract that is not hunted. It also borders 2 other large ranches that have very little hunting pressure. Shackleford County is noted for producing large high scoring trophy whitetail deer. The ranch has approximately 80 acres of winter wheat with additional plots planted with oats and other winter forage.
At Winterhawk Outfitters you will have a true fair chase hunt for native or exotic wildlife found on several pristine ranches around Central Texas. This is not the high fence hunting you find in other parts of Texas, but true fair chase exciting hunts. All whitetail deer hunting will be done at our Albany, TX location.
We will soon start booking for the 2016 whitetail deer hunting season. As usual, that season will open the first Saturday in November and go through the months of November and December 2016.
The Winterhawk Outfitters whitetail deer herd has been managed as an 8 points or better standard for the last 8 years, which has resulted in a good population of Trophy Whitetail Bucks. Additionally, there are many Trophy Gobblers and managed Wild Hogs. Check out our photo galleries for examples of animals you find on the Ranches.
Not only do we provide some of the best hunting opportunities found in Texas, but we also provide a great outdoors and wildlife photography opportunity for the non-hunters who want to come out and observe the animals in their natural environment.
Winterhawk Outfitters was established in 2001 and the name comes from the fact that the owners used to watch the hawks fly when hunting on ranches in Central Texas. Whenever you hunt with Winterhawk Outfitters and you see a hawk flying above, that is a sign of good luck. Come give it a try!
