Premiere Texas Hunting Ranch
Plaska Lodge High Fence Story
I began to make plans for something I thought I would never do. The following summer my 2 very young sons and I set out to conquer Goliath, build a high fence in some of the roughest most rugged canyon country in the county. 4 long hot summers later we shut the gate on some of the best genetics in Texas. The very next summer we began again on a totally different piece of our property. The 3 of us had pounded every post and tied every wire and had endured every grueling second of it to protect the wildlife and nothing more. No animal inside these enclosures would ever have its life cut short by human hands again. Every buck would live to see its full genetic potential.
Plaska Lodge has had a portion of our property high fenced now for 13 years. The gene pool is the same as it was in 1997 and we are able to give them the proper nutrition and age needed to produce world class trophies. There are no cross fences or pens. This is not a canned hunt. We do not release them to be shot. There is absolutely no difference in hunting inside or outside. The deer are wild and untamed, and there is no guarantee. We have 2 separate ranches under high fence. One is rough, rugged, breaks and canyons that is home to Whitetail, Mule Deer, Aoudad Sheep and Elk, while the other is thick bottom land full of cactus ﬂats and mesquite that provide a sanctuary for Whitetail, Mule Deer and 6 different species of rams. There is a total of just under 2000 acres game fenced.
If you would still rather hunt open range, the trophy whitetail genetics are still there as well. We have the exact same management plan in place as we had 20 years ago. There are 8000 acres to hunt and the deer are free to roam wherever they desire. Please just remember, although there are some monster bucks out there we have no control over our neighbors.
Wildlife is OUR life. This is all we do. Plaska Lodge is blessed by God to take care of a small little portion of some of his beauty. We take pride in that. We do everything in our power to make sure it’s done right, so that when you come see us you take back home unforgettable memories.
