Welcome to Plaska Lodge

Premiere Texas Hunting Ranch

We have 10,000 acres of intensely managed land at your disposal. 2000 acres of fenced and 8000 open range. Our ranch is located 80 miles southeast of Amarillo, near Memphis, Texas; and only 4.5 hours from the Dallas- Fort Worth Metropolitan Area.

The terrain is as diverse as the animals we have – from deep canyons and cedar breaks to thick, brushy, rolling hills in the bottomland. Cottonwood lined creeks and prickly pear flats provide a sanctuary for wild game. The rich red clay soil and mineral deposits near the river, combined with high protein food plots grow massive antlers and body weights, unmatched by other parts of the world. There is a variety of game, extensively fed and managed. Our guided Whitetail hunts are world class. Our ranch is also blessed with a healthy Dessert Mule Deer population. Enjoy chasing gigantic wild boar or a variety of exotic animals. The wild Bobwhite quail numbers are second to none, and our Wild turkey population is a close second, all of these excursion packages can be customized to fit your needs.

Plaska Lodge Texas Hunting Ranch

Plaska Lodge is a historic 100 year-old-general store. Enjoy a rustic old west setting, heated by wood burning stoves, filled with antiques and memorabilia from the early 1900’s. You will stay in your own private bedroom, and dine on Texas style home cooking.

I want to thank all at Plaska Lodge for being there for many of the most memorable hunting experiences of my lifetime. Oren Don Molloy and his guide, Evan King are number one in my book. Ten years of chasing whitetails, mule deer and even Aoudad across the Texas Panhandle with you guys has put a bunch of trophies on my wall. I have been fortunate to have hunted all over the U.S. and Canada but the hunt that I need to book every year is Plaska Lodge. I very much look forward to my grandkids getting to learn North Texas Hunting in the next several years with Plaska Lodge. As I say every year when we part ways, “book me again at this same time for next year.”

Kevin Schmidt, Minnesota

Over the past sixteen year, I have been to Plaska Lodge at least twice if not three times per year. Hunting all over the country, I have not found a place that I enjoy more. The Molloy’s make everyone feel like family and go out of their way to ensure a safe enjoyable trip. the lodge is amazing! It is all fair chase and i can honestly say that the time, effort, and expense that Oren Don puts into his properties is like no other. Currently, I am deployed on a combat tour and will miss the entire fall/winter. I ask the Good Lord to allow me to return to Plaska Lodge after my current deployment.

Chad H. Smith, COL, AV, Arizona

Our group (roughly 6 people) has been traveling to Plaska Lodge for over 15 years and the service provided by Oren Don and his teams continue to impress. We always enjoy great hunting, an incredibly unique and comfortable lodge, great food, and great friendships. We look forward to coming back to plaska every year!

The Sparks Family, Denver, CO

I first started hunting at Plaska Lodge over 10 years ago. I was immediately impressed with the hospitality and professionalism that was shown to each and every client. Oren Don and his crew always work hard to make their clients hunting experiences successful and enjoyable. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to hunt and harvest many of the species they have to offer. It is always a pleasure to return to this comfortably well-kept lodge and enjoy the down home cooking and relaxed atmosphere.

Hunting Ranches Are the Ultimate Choice for the Outdoorsman


This is more than a sport or a pastime for many people. It is a time-honored tradition that has been passed down from one generation to the next. People across the United States and around the world pursue game animals for food, sport and for the enjoyment of being outdoors. They will often do so on public land, private land, or state-owned land but the benefits of using a private Texas ranch makes it well worth considering. Here are a few of those benefits you can experience when visiting Plaska Lodge:


Most people would consider the cost to be prohibitive when using private ranches but the fact of the matter is, they can often save you money in the long run.  Lets use a lease for example;  consider not only the dollar amount you may spend on a lease, but also the time it will cost you.  You will have fuel expenses to drive back and forth, feed costs to fill feeders, not to mention the countless hours of scouting.  Only to fall short at the end of the season if you do not harvest the deer of your dreams.  As opposed to a ranch;  you will only have expenses to travel to the land but in most cases, the fees that you pay for the trip are going to cover everything once you land at the airport. This will include your lodging, meals, a guide and perhaps some amenities that you had not even consider before. Not to mention the opportunity to seek a variety of game such as whitetail doe, Rio Grande Turkey, Texas Aoudad sheep, wild hog, Texas Panhandle Mule Deer, and some exotic species.


Although the success you experience is not the most important factor to keep in mind, it certainly can go a long way in helping you to have a memorable experience. How many times did you spend days on state-owned land and never even saw so much as a tail waving in the breeze? When you go with our professional guides, they will go out of their way to ensure you see plenty of game in the field and that you go home with the best trophy animal we can offer. After all, our reputation is wound up in your success, so we will do what it takes to make you successful, and ensure that you have the best experience if we can.


Any successful trip is going to be memorable but when you are able to bring the trophy home, it is going to make the trip well worth the effort. When you scour the area on public or state-owned property, the herd is not typically maintained. That is not the case with our property. We manage our ranch extensively. On our ranch, we ensure that all of the needs of the animals are met in order to grow mature, healthy animals that will make a fine trophy. In addition, we keep a close eye on the herd to keep them from declining in numbers. This will ensure that every trip to Plaska Lodge will yield the greatest Trophy Whitetail deer, Or Exotic Trophy animals.


When you are with a professional guide, you will have all of the advice necessary to make your excursion top-notch. This could include everything from where and when to be out in the land to the weaponry that you take with you in the field. Keep in mind that a professional guide service is not only there during the time that you are in the field but they can also advise you as to what to bring with you before you arrive. Any and all questions can be answered before you arrive so that we can make sure you have everything you need to make your trip the best.

Respect for the Environment:

One other reason to visit our private ranch is that we tend to take care of the environment, as it means our livelihood. We will follow a certain code of conduct and are committed to preserving both the animals and the area where they live.

When booking with us, you will get all of these amenities and more! The new Plaska Lodge high fence hunting area will guarantee bragging rights to your friends! Our animals have been fed, managed, and taken care of for over 23 years. Contact us today and see which trophy package works for you! (940)585-1008
