For the discriminating Whitetail, Elk or Exotic hunter DEA Ranch is a virtual paradise. We specialize in Whitetail, Exotic, and Elk hunts with exceptional and personalized service.
Whitetail deer hunting at DEA Ranch is an experience every serious hunter should explore. Quality whitetail hunting is the main objective of the management program at the DEA Ranch. We continue to improve our natural genetic pool with regular releases of additional trophy genetics to take our trophy potential to the next level for hunting clients.
DEA Ranch also offers trophy exotic and elk hunting for our hunting clients. Year round hunts for axis blackbucks and several species of trophy rams are available.
Dove hunting can be exceptional offering fast and enjoyable shooting for our clients. We are surrounded by thousands of acres of grain fields which provide plenty of food for doves in our area. The many lakes located on the ranch draw large numbers of birds onto the property for water and the large trees surrounding the lakes provide the perfect roosting area. This combination of food, water and roost areas can support fast shooting and easy limits.
Spring turkey hunting is exciting and consistent with the large numbers of birds which inhabit our ranch. We work hard improving the turkey population and limit the number of hunts offered to continue improving the turkey trophy potential.
All hunts are conducted by using box blinds; pop up blinds, rattling, spot and stalk and safari style. We will employ any technique which will ensure our clients a successful hunt. While hunting at DEA Ranch you will have the opportunity to enjoy the hunting lodge which is the perfect place to entertain clients, show appreciation to loyal employees or combine a company meeting with a hunt of a lifetime.

****Gratuity for your Guide is recommended. Our guides spend countless hours during the summer helping prepare the ranch for the hunting season and scouting our animals during antler growing season to ensure you a great opportunity in a successful hunt.
***We get asked what a tip should be and the best way we can describe it is like a Resturant. Folks usually give 10% – 15% for great service for a couple hours at dinner, our guides will be taking care of you during the hunt for 2 or 3 days to show you a great time. That are very thankful for anything put their way.
**If you do not harvest the trophy you are after during your hunt you will be refunded the trophy fee minus the Ranch Fee.
* Any animal that a shot has been taken at is Hit, presumed hit by guide or hunter then that animals is then yours. If Hair, Bone, Blood, or Stomach Matter (if any animal is NOT retrieved and is found at a later date dead, you will be charged the fee cost of the animal and we will ship the antlers or horns to you) drawn then that animals is your animal. We will do everything in our power to try and retrieve that animal from the field and the score will be determined by the guide and discussed with the ranch manager for approval. We do have contacts with extremely well trained blood tracking dogs that the hunter must pay to have come and try to locate the wounded animal if all other efforts have failed. That deer dog fee is usually between $400 and $500 depending on the tracker and the time of year and weekday or weekend and time of day or night. These trackers are good and usually recover the deer.
This fee is paid directly to the tracker by the hunter.
We are now booking corporate skeet shoot and business meetings along with large events and weddings in our brand new 14,000 sq ft event / dance hall
Exceptional Animals may be offered at a higher price when available.
