My son Gabriel is 8 Yrs old and was born with spinal-bifida. He
has had 18 major brain, spine, and orthopedic surgeries in the last 8
yrs. He is paralyzed from the waist down and is very limited to what he
can do physically. Needless to say, there are so many activities that
Gabe has to “set in the sidelines” and watch.
All that said Gabe has a great outlook on life and brings joy to
everyone that he is around. So when Gabe started asking about going
hunting with me about 2 Yrs ago, I tried everything I could do to make
his desire come true. But because of his surgeries and other health
conditions it has never been possible. For 2 Yrs while Gabe was in the
hospital not able to leave his bed or couldn’t do normal activities
with other children, he would daydream of shooting a big deer or seeing
huge hogs or other animals.
Then this year I was driving by “ The Wildlife Ranch “ game
ranch and thought it would be neat for Gabe to go out there and see all
their animals and maybe shoot one. I called the number on the gate and
was able to reach a fantastic lady. I explained the situation, Gabe’s
disabilities, and his dream to see the animals and to go hunting. We
scheduled our trip with assurances that Gabe would have the time of his
We arrived at the ranch to meet out guide. This man couldn’t
have been any nicer or more genuine, if he had been a member of our
family. He took the time to show Gabe every animal he could find and
answer every question we had. Gabe has never been happier, and they were
right he had the time of his life.
Its hard to see your child want to run and ride a bike, an not be
able to. It’s hard to see your child in the hospital bed and not be
able to help him. The worst of it is to see a child so strong mentally
and spiritually, not be able to make his bodywork. Because of this I try
to make the things Gabe can do very special for him.
Thanks to The Wildlife Ranch, this trip was very special
experience Gabe has had. Now the only thing I am hearing is “ When can
I go back, and shoot something with horns?” So we will be coming back
to Mason soon, to visit our new friends and shoot something, maybe with
Thank you, The Wildlife Ranch, you have made a small boy’s
dream come true, and opened a whole new world for him to enjoy.
I am just sending you a short note to say thanks for an enjoyable
hunt. My son in law and I both enjoyed our Ram hunts. Our Guide was very
helpful and patient with us. I
also enjoyed getting a hog after the ram hunt. We are trying to decide
when we will be back, this time for a blackbuck or some other exotic.
Thanks for an enjoyable weekend that will make my friends jealous.
I am unsure if you got a copy of the pictures our
rams so I thought I would send them to you for your trophy room.
I just wanted to say thank you all for the hunt this past
weekend. My son loved it. He asked on the way home when we were going to
go do it again. Thank you for helping guide and encourage him with the
Catalina hunt. Thank you for taking care of having his name in the gold
list for 2005 as well.
If you could let me know how I can purchase the book
when it comes out next year would be greatly appreciated.
I have added some pics of the hunt so you can add it
to your web page
again for the great hunt!
Just a note to say hi and let you know what a great
time I had at The Wildlife Ranch.
Ya’ll run a top-notch facility and I was very
pleased to be a part of such a wonderful event. You made me feel very
comfortable and right at home while I was down there. I didn’t know
what to expect having never hunted a ranch before, but you treated me
like family and I’m still glowing thinking of my adventures down
there. The Red Deer was a tasty treat last night on the BBQ. I’ll be
back next year to your 1st class hunting grounds.
to just take the time out to thank you for your hospitality and for
taking my dad and I out to hunt this past Sunday. Enjoyed having to work
a little to get the Fallow. Although my dad didn’t shoot anything, we
both had a great time. Will defiantly come out again. Probably will want
to get some type of antelope or hard antlered Axis in late spring before
it gets to hot and give my dad a chance to take one. Will DEFINITELY
want to book either trophy or managements whitetail buck hunt this fall
each. Please advise when you will start booking either one of these
whitetail hunts. Will also refer your ranch to any of our hunting
friends and acquaintances that aren’t to whooped and still allowed to
I just wanted to send an email thanking each of you for our
recent hunt. Not only did we get to meet some extremely nice people but
also had an excellent hunt. The facilities were good and just what was
needed after a day of driving and hunting. We had an excellent guide
that worked hard for us during our hunt. The office Staff was great.
They not only booked our hunt but also let us know what to expect and if
any questions came up they were there to answer them for us. I am
looking forward to my next visit, as my son wants to come down and go on
a Ram hunt also. Which also means I will be hunting again. In closing I
just want to say THANKS for the effort in insuring we had a successful
hunt and a great
had a great time. With an excellent guide and very informative, we will
you very much for the pictures. They are good; I will be looking at the
web page to see if they show up. We enjoyed the time spent in Mason and
the hunts were great. We all said we would do it again. Our Guides were
wonderful and did there jobs great. They made us feel at home and were
willing to assist with anything we needed. Thanks again for a great hunt
and experience we will forever remember.
I’m not interested in you advertised hunt at this time, but,
thanks for sending me an email letting me know about it. I greatly
appreciate it. I will however, be seeing you all in March when my son
and I return for another hunt. It will be my son and I only this time;
my wife and daughter will be staying home. It’ll be neat adventure for
my son and I to travel across the country, just the two of us. We’ll
be seeing you all soon!
for a wonderful time my cousins and I had. I will send a picture of the
mounts of our Rams. Will book another hunt soon!
care and have a great day!
had a great time with ya’ll and our guide did a great job putting us
on the game. I am sure we will be back in the years to come.
thought I would drop you a line and tell you all about the good times we
had over there. The guys have not stopped talking about your place. They
have already started talking about next year. We are bringing more guys
also. It was the little touches that set your operation apart from the
others. Such as going for the videotape when you didn’t have to or the
pictures you had given us of our animals. We enjoyed hunting with your
group and we will be back for more of the same.
I think I have my wife talked into going with me.
to you soon
wanted to thank you for a superb weekend of hunting. Had a great time
and is looking forward to another weekend on your place. I had the most
memorable time of my life. I enjoyed the beauty of the place and seeing
so many different animals. We truly thank you for your time and patience
in showing us a wonderful time.
& B. M.
for the great time. The time spent with my son and you guys was great.
Please take care.
want to say “Thanks” for all the effort you put into helping me
collect my Texas Dall. He is a Great sheep and I am very pleased. I hope
to be back for my Mouflon. I have enclosed a few pictures. Hope you
you for another great Ram. I appreciate your dedication and hard work
more than you know. I am so pleased to have been able to fill my Texas
Slam with all gold metal Rams. Without your help this would never have
happened. Please express my sincere gratitude to all the fine people at
The Wildlife Ranch. You folks run a first class operation. I would not
dream of hunting anywhere else. Any money spent with you is money well
spent. My guide locate me a big Catalina! I will be back at the first
hint of cool weather. I will also bring Jeff and Chris for a Ram each.
Until then, Best wishes
I had so much fun at your ranch hunting wild boar, Thank you
very much indeed!! My guide is a super fellow!! He was awesome. He made
my visit very enjoyable. Thank
you once again. I flew down from Ontario, Canada & had an absolute
Blast (Literally) I look forward to once again coming down to Mason
& Hunt with my friends! Our hunts were exciting & FUN!! All you
can ask for from an outfitter…
I would like to take a quick moment to sincerely say thank you for an
awesome weekend. The lady in the office was more than helpful and very
friendly. Our Guide was also very down to earth and full of
patience while taking my 9 year old step-son on his first official hunt
for himself. My step-son got to harvest a big mature 4 horn ram.
To see the joy and excitement on his face made everything worthwhile.
I think I was just as excited or maybe more. Bragged to everyone,
shown pictures and the video to everyone he knows. I was also with
the nice animal that I was able to take with a bow. The whole weekend
was great as accommodations. We are already planning to come back
in a few months for my step-sons 10th birthday. After seeing
literature, pictures we took, and the video, grandpa said he is coming
to hunt with us as well.
