The place is called Chupadero Ranch. It came to The Hunting Report's attention thanks to an enthusiastic Hunt Report filed by subscriber Scott Chapman. Chapman was at Chupadero this past December hunting Texas whitetails and raved about his experience. He said the place is a good ranch to take at least two deer species and a javelina on the same trip. He reports seeing more than 20 deer a day that would score from 120 to 170 and says he took a 12-point buck with a six-inch droptine that scored 150 SCI. He plans to return.
Chupadero Ranch is located in northern Coahuila, about 96 kilometers (60 miles) from Del Rio, Texas. The property encompasses over 70,000 acres and is about 32 kilometers long by eight kilometers wide (20 x 5 miles). Its configuration causes the ranch to overlap the habitats preferred by the different deer species of Northern Coahuila. On the far eastern end of Chupadero, the country is mostly flat and open, giving way to big rolling hills. This is desert mule deer country. Towards the center, Chupadero Ranch features the smaller hill country preferred by Texas whitetails. On the western end of the property lie the tall Sierra del Burro Mountains, where the Carmen Mountain whitetails are found. Based from the main ranch house, hunters at Chupadero Ranch are able to hunt all three deer during one trip to Coahuila. The farthest drive from the house is only about 1½ hours.
