Hear what people say after a guided hunt at Plainview Ranch:

I just wanted to say thank you to Gene and Darlene for the Best Daddy Daughter Trip ever! My oldest Daughter Trinity is a Senior this year and will be attending LSU next year and studying Pre Vetenary Med. For my graduation present to her I purchased her a trophy deer hunt at Plainview Ranch. The experience more than exceeded our expectations. The time spent in the deer stand with my daughter was priceless. It brought us closer together. Oh, and by the way she killed her best buck ever and a mature doe. The accommodations and meals are first class and you are treated like royalty from the time you get there until the time you leave. There is even a couples suite in a separate house with a king size bed and private bath. I enjoyed it so much that I will be bringing my Wife next year! Thanks Gene and Darlene for a great trip!

The whole Hunt was Great!!!! The accommodations and food were just like home. Deer were everywhere and did not seem pressured. Gene and Darlene are fantastic Host, very courteous and friendly. They make you feel like Family! Looking forward to coming back next year with my other two Son-in-Laws.

From the homecooked meals to the precise placement of each hunter in the right stand, Gene & Darlene do whatever it takes to make sure your stay and hunt is a pleasurable experience. I’ve hunted Plainview Ranch 2 years in a row now and left both times looking forward to the next year. Beautiful country and great experiences.

This was our third year to hunt at Plainview Ranch and as in the past, we not only had a great hunt but had a great time. Hunted this year with my dad and son. Hospitality is second to none. Gene and Darlene are great host.  Gene does excellent job in managing the game on the ranch. Looking forward to next years hunt.

What a great successful hunt at Plainview Ranch. All of the accommodations were great. Everything was nice and clean. Great food, great service, from getting us to and from our stands, to cleaning our deer and packing them. The ranch is a beautiful place. We have been hunting for years and I can tell you these animals on the property have had no pressure on them. Thanks again Gene and Darlene for your Hospitality!

— Happy Hunter


Plainview ranch is a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of the real world. With excellent amenities and awesome hunting it is truly a hidden gem. Great setups for bow hunters! I would highly recommend this as a great hunting opportunity or just to get out into the hill country of Texas and see animals.
