Elk Hunting in Texas

Elk Hunting in Texas

Elk Hunting Season:There are no seasonal restrictions on Elk in Texas, however any time after August is the best time of year because they are out of velvet.  

  • Origin: North America 
  • Weight: 800-1,200 pounds
  • Lonesome Bull Ranch Population:40+

Elk here on the Lonesome Bull Ranch are reasonably priced but we are not harvesting 400+ inch elk like a few years back. We take 4 hunters at the spelling of the season on the (presidential hunt), for $3950 after that they are $2950. The Elk on the Lonesome Bull Ranch are so reasonably priced we sell out each year. We recommend early booking for your Elk hunt.

Interesting Elk Hunting Information

Elk and Red Deer (or Red stag) are part of the same family. They do cross breed. Elk have a pair of ivory teeth that is a big part of the hunter’s trophy that people make jewelry out of. The bull elk during mating season here on the Lonesome Bull Ranch tend to keep us up at night bungling. Elk can be dangerous during breeding season and act crazy. I guess if we only got to breed once a year, we would be crazy also.
