535 Independence Creek Road | Dryden, Texas | 78851


The Chandler Ranch is located in the heart of the Pecos Trail Region and is prime West Texas country, home to herds of whitetail deer. With the Pecos River’s and Independence Creek’s waters flowing through the ranch, animals are extremely abundant. There’s plenty of untrammeled land on the Chandler Ranch to go around. You have full admission to virtually all its undisturbed wilderness: a refreshing creek, two ponds, woodlands, rugged terrains, and flattop mountains.

This is the first year Chandler Ranch has offered hunting packages to the public. We recently enlisted a rigorous game management program to ensure that our whitetail deer obtain the highest amount of antler and body growth. By working with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, we are working towards a uniform deer age structure with an ideal 2:1 doe-to-buck ratio. You can expect to see a countless number of healthy mature deer. The ranch is known to have free-range whitetail bucks score 110 – 130+ B&C.

4-Day Semi-Guided Fair Chase Whitetail Deer Hunt

Hunters’ Package | $2750

Non-hunters’ Cost per Day | $150

We offer four-day semi-guided fair chase hunts during November – January. All meals, accommodations, transportation while at the ranch, activities outside of hunting, preparation of game, and a chance to harvest one white-tail buck, two does, and one Rio Grande turkey all of your choice are included in the package. As an added benefit, we also include an “extra shot” to harvest a bobcat, feral hog, or mountain lion.


Three hardy meals with refreshments (non-alcoholic only) are served each day of the hunt. An on-site country cooks prepare feasts. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks with you. Cabins are furnished with mini refrigerators.


After a long hunt, relax in our spacious, newly renovated cabins. Each lodge features rustic, southern style décor with luxurious bedding and modern amenities.


Our guides transport each hunter to and from the deer blinds each morning and evening. We have six blinds across the ranch with deer feeders and game cameras.


Roam the ranch on foot or use our motorized “mules” and head out hiking, wildlife-scouting or simply fish in one of our local ponds or the Pecos River. Hunters and non-hunters gain access to all Adventures amenities the ranch offers.

Preparation of Game

We include field dressing, quartering, and cold storage of your game. Each hunter must furnish a cooler. If needed, taxidermy services are available.

"Extra Shot”

We are a fair chase, free-range game hunting ranch. You may harvest a bobcat, feral hog, or mountain lion at no-charge.

Not surprisingly, wildlife outnumbers the human population on the ranch. Animals as raccoons, skunks, armadillos, rabbits, beavers, possums, and porcupines are never hunted, but to be observed and protected in their natural habitat.


Reserve the ranch for your group’s exclusive use with at least six to maximum of 14 people. No more than five hunters are permitted to hunt per week. Non-hunters are welcome to join hunters for the weekend. The exclusive group access includes accommodation in all three cabins. The Café Cabin can lodge up to six guests and the two Bunkhouse Cabins can house four guests each. Please inquire for more details.


We require a 50% deposit per hunter and non-hunter. Hunting reservations are not permitted without a deposit. Your deposit is non-refundable; however, dates may be substituted. Your deposit is applied to your total balance. Final payments are due at check-in. We accept cash and credit. Dates are offered on a first come/first served basis.


Your hunting license must be purchased before arrival to the ranch. Non-resident general hunting licenses cost $315 plus a $7 for an upland game bird stamp. All hunters are guaranteed a license over the counter. Pick up your license at your local Bass Pro Shop or Academy Sports Store.

Every hunter (including out-of-state hunters) born on or after Sept. 2, 1971, must successfully complete a Hunter Education Training Course. Proof of certification is required to be on the hunter while hunting. Visit TPWD.Texas.gov/Education/Hunter-Education for more information.
