Texas African Game Hunts


Kudu are also known as the Grey Ghost of Africa. Our population of Kudu numbers over a 100. We estimate roughly 50 bulls inhabiting 8,000 acres. That number is growing as we release approximately 15-20 each year from our breeding areas. Primarily a browser, you will usually find them lurking in the brush. Though they will way up to 1,000 pounds, their primary defense is hiding. If spooked, you will hear a loud roar. Star S Ranch is home to 2 of the top 3 Kudu in North America which measured over 60”.

Our hunting styles vary as to method of take and time of year. Most of our guides are not only experienced hunting in Texas, but have international hunting experience as well. We primarily hunt safari style, glassing hill sides and valleys. When they are deep in the brush, we will stalk ridges and glass. For those who are bow hunting, it is just a matter of sitting and waiting. Kudu are as wary as any whitetail so it takes patience.

With one what may be the largest herd of Kudu in Texas, you will have plenty to see. We limit our hunting, only taking a few mature bulls per year. We are not going to hunt a bull until he has reached his maximum size. Because of our management and breeding success, Star S Ranch offers many larger bulls than you will likely see in Africa at a price that we would be happy to have you compare.

You will be staying in our new 7,000 foot Hunter’s Lodge which was complete the summer of 2014. The main lodge includes 32 foot ceilings with black walnut walls covered with trophies from around the world. A granite bar top and service area is perfect for relaxing and telling hunting stories. The back porch overlooks a lake where it is not uncommon to see Sable Antelope, Kudu, Axis Deer, and Whitetail Deer drinking water. There are 4 casitas with 2 queen sized beds and a private living room. One room and the lodge and surroundings are wheel chair accessible so all can enjoy the facilities and outdoors. Additionally, you can fly your plane into our 5,000 foot paved Star S Airport which is located in the middle of the ranch. At Star S Ranch, you will find all the amenities needed for a Corporate Retreat built around the wildlife and hunting loved by the avid hunter.

If you are looking for a true Trophy Kudu hunting experience with world record quality kudu, privacy, tremendous facilities, an experienced friendly staff, and among the simplest, fairest pricing in the industry, the 14,000 acre Star S Ranch should be on your short list.
