Texas African Game Hunts


Sable Antelope are among Africa’s most prized trophies. Our population of Sable number over a 100 making it the largest herd outside of Africa. 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. As a grazer, Sable are primarily grass eaters though you will usually see them skirting the edge of the brush. Bulls will weigh 750 pounds and have very few enemies. Even lions view them as a food source of last resort. Bad tempered and extremely territorial, older bulls seldom move from their home area. You will see younger bachelor groups of as many as 15 feeding together though. There range spans from East Africa to Southern Africa. Angola was once home to the Giant Sable which had horns that were commonly over 50”. But in the rest of Africa, you would never pass up a bull over 40”. As you can see from the photos, we commonly harvest 40”+ bulls.

Our hunting styles vary as to method of take and time of year. Most of our guides not only have local hunting experience, but 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. Though Sable are usually pretty stand offish, finding old bulls in 8,000 acres can require a lot of hunting. 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 Sable hunting experience with record quality sable, 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.
