The hunts being offered include a trophy whitetail hunt in South Texas brush country on the Caiman Ranch; 10 hunts for whitetails on the Chaparral Wildlife Management Area and several popular Texas ranches; an alligator hunt in J.D. Murphree Wildlife Management Area; a hunt on a former exotics ranch that is now a wildlife management area and offers hunting for African game, including sable; plus a waterfowl hunt for four; an upland bird and turkey hunt; and lastly what's called a Texas Grand Slam. The "Slam" is considered the hunting package of a lifetime, as it offers four separate hunts for indigenous Texas game. The package includes a whitetail deer, pronghorn antelope, desert mule deer and a desert bighorn sheep. Lodging, meals, guide service and taxidermy is included for all four hunts.
