The Lone Star state is home to not only the largest Axis deer population in the country, it has the most exotic game animals by far compared to any other state. The last statewide survey in 1996 found about 190,000 exotic animals varying among 76 different species, but estimates today range in the millions. Landowners and hunters are therefore tasked with the responsibility of managing these exotic populations, thereby facilitating outstanding exotic hunting opportunities.
BespokeHunts affiliated ranches rely heavily on hunting to manage their exotic populations; a management practice that offers our clientele a unique opportunity to hunt trophy caliber exotic game. Whether you’re looking for additional excitement on your whitetail or turkey hunt, in search of a unique corporate event, or simply after a specific trophy caliber exotic to add to your trophy room, BespokeHunts can customize a hunt that will excite even the most traveled hunter. BespokeHunts offers premier, fully guided exotic game hunts on several highly exclusive, intensively managed, private ranches in south Texas and the Texas hill country.
The majority of our exotic hunting is conducted in coordination with our whitetail and turkey hunts but we do offer several hunts each year exclusively for our exotic hunters. Given the highly elusive nature of our exotics, we often employ several hunting methods, including the use of ground and tower blinds, spot and stalk, and safari style hunts.
Hunting exotics in Texas can be done year around, with no season restrictions or bag limits with the exception of Aoudad sheep in the Palo Duro Canyon area (8 counties in the Texas panhandle). Another factor that makes exotic hunting in Texas so attractive to our hunters is the fact that non-resident exotic hunting licenses are very inexpensive and unlimited (5 day license only costs $48).

Given the incredible whitetail and turkey populations on our affiliated ranches, our hunters often harvest their trophies early in the hunt. If you wish to add some additional excitement to your trip, consider adding any of our exotic species to your package.
With consideration of the management requirements of the thriving exotic populations on our affiliated ranches, all of our hunters have the opportunity to pursue multiple exotic species during their hunt.
