"Best damn hunt I have ever been on! Norris was a great guide and I will be back. I came to this hunt not knowing exactly what to expect as I have never been on a guided hunt before and have heard and read horror stories about these kinds of hunts. The previous statement COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG, I went to shoot a female elk and got much more. I had Norris for a guide, who upon my arrival ... see full review

"I had a lot of fun. The guides were very nice & funny. They also taught me how to skin my first deer. And I guarantee you'll have a lot of fun too."
Aidan Ganchan, Houston TX
"Brought my entire family (kids 9,7,4) and my wife for her first hunting trip. Nice accommodations. Our guide provided a great environment for my son to shoot his first deer while the whole family witnessed. Most of the staff we met (Fred, Dee & Frank) were great. Shot several other high fenced ranches across Texas with mixed opportunities. This ranch is on our 'to visit list' for next year! Highly recommended for families with small kids. On a negative note, didn't like how the other guide left Dee with 2 hunting groups-that was tacky."
Michael Ganchan, Houston TX
"Shot this Gold Medal Addax with my bow at under 40 yards, and there were over 100 to choose from. Our group shot 3 Addax and all were Gold Medal and in great health."
Randy Harrell, Corpus Christi TX

Vince Haigood, Corpus Christi TX
"Great time at the ranch. Guide was very helpful on putting us on some good choice animals. There were so many Addax that the hardest part was not getting 2 in 1 shot! Good place to go hunting for everyone."
Adrian Buentello, Alice TX
"Thanks for a great experience! The Capitol team had a great time and harvested some trophy animals. Norris and his guide team were helpful and patient on some of our novice hunters. Cheers, The Capitol Team"

"Great personal relationships and camaraderie. Lots of effort to please us. Look forward to returning and very pleased. Its always easy to critique and less common to show gratification these days. I'm very happy with the service & staff at Lonesome Bull."

Ronnie Bunch, Houston Texas
"I brought my daughter, son, and girlfriend here and we all shot something. We came on a $2950 hunt (up to 150 B&C) and I got a NICE 150" whitetail. My girlfriend shot a nice whitetail, my daughter and son each shot a fallow. We had the entire lodge to ourselves and we saw zebras, oryx, buffalo, elk, nyala, sitatunga, red deer, wildebeest, and many more. Fred and Norris were great hosts and made us feel at home."
Lance Walston, Hemphill Texas
"Fantastic Time! Guides are very knowledgeable of animals and where they are at. Entire staff is very courteous, friendly and hospitable. I will definitely come back and recommend to my friends."
David Lehman, Houston, TX
"Came to hunt several 150 class whitetails. Fred worked with us and we upgraded for 2 wonderful deer of a lifetime. All of our guests had a great time. This is our 3rd year and not our last."
L.V. Reyes, Baytown Texas
"Saw a number of good shooter bucks. The ranch is a great place to take friends and customers. I will definitely come back"
Roger Strickland, Robstown Texas
"I shot this whitetail buck on the Lonesome Bull Ranch during the rut. There were 15-20 deer at the feeder I hunted at. Have no complaints on the quality of animals or service we received."
"I hunt Lonesome Bull Ranch every year with family and clients, and always kill many quality animals. Here is a 39" gemsbok from a late 2012 hunt."
"We took this buffalo on a meat hunt for a very reasonable price. Filled my freezer and then some. We were treated very well. There are thousands of animals all over the ranch and it felt like we were on an African Safari. I have heard of a couple people who are writing bad reviews all over the web, and I'm sure the ranch can't please everyone, but we had a great time and will be back!"
"I shot this whitetail on Lonesome Bull Ranch next to the big lake in the middle of the ranch. This ranch is full of huge quality whitetails, and if your looking for a huge trophy, this is the place to go."
"This giant trophy watusi was taken off the Lonesome Bull Ranch, and guided by the boys at Helluva Hunt. Great ranch with top quality animals!"
"We hunt on the Lonesome Bull Ranch every year, and the deer just keep getting bigger. Can't wait till next season. Fred, the Ranch Manager, and Marc, the Hunting Guide, have always been good to us"
"Here is another deer I took this season that was about 30" wide. I just love this ranch. There are 2600 acres full of thousands of animals. I would hate to pay the feed bill!"
"I finally got to take an animal at the Lonesome Bull Ranch. Just wanted to show y'all the quality of animals they have here!"
"I take a large group to Lonesome Bull Ranch every year, and we hunt everything from whitetails, to exotics, to meat hunts and have never had a problem with this ranch. I have read some bad reviews written on some hunting forums and know that not every hunt can go well, but I think some inexperienced hunters go in with high expectations, and do not put in the effort for a hunt and expect to take home a trophy. We have a great time at the ranch and always cook for the guides and the ranch manager and his family. We have hunted along side of hunters from all over the world at Lonesome Bull Ranch, and there was never a problem when I've been there. I think some of the people posting bad reviews are just jealous, or the outfitters that have been run out of the ranch. Please use my full name."
"I shot this Gemsbok on the Lonesome Bull Ranch while riding on the Critter Gitter. We had a large corporate hunting group from Dos XX and everyone had a great time. The guides and ranch staff were very helpful and friendly."
"My name is Craig Sparks and I shot this buck at the Lonesome Bull Ranch. It is the biggest deer I have ever harvested. There was many to choose from. If you put in some time and effort, and don't go cheap, you will harvest a great deer. Best regards to all of the LBR staff."
