Pursue big bucks

Ghost Apache Ranch offers a world-class opportunity to enjoy the big bucks of South Texas. Few habitats offer the abundance of wild game found only in the brush country of South Texas.  

In the bush

You will definitely know you are “in the bush” once you arrive in this wild semi-desert thorn bush country that resembles the African wilderness. Big deer thrive on the high-protein brush native to an area known as the Golden Triangle. This area is famous for the quality and quantity of record book whitetail grown in North America.  Be sure to ask about our large African plains game.

A one-of-a-kind adventure

Come experience a unique adventure, with over 9,000 acres of high fence including 4 miles of Nueces River frontage bottomland. Ghost Apache is in a class of its own even in South Texas, with a majority of the ranch consisting of old native brush and considered “unimproved”, in cattle production terminology. The land provides a diverse high-protein diet exceeding 20% in the winter and summer seasons. This native year-round high-protein forage is why South Texas is famous for big-antlered deer.
