Whether you prefer to spot and stalk, glassing from a ridgeline, rattling, bow hunting, or sitting in the comfort of one of our blinds, our experienced guides tailor your hunt to what you enjoy doing most and provide you with the best opportunity to harvest your trophy.


Low Fence Hunts take place on land not surrounded by game proof fences.  The game is free range and can often take more legwork to find and kill, but some hunters relish in the extra chase required to take home their trophy.


McCrea Outdoors offers some of the best Texas spring turkey hunts because we pride ourselves on delivering a high quality and memorable hunting experience.  Along with countless acres of territory, our guides have the knowledge and experience to help your hunt be a success.


Across four separate ranches in Central Texas, here at McCrea Outdoors we offer 27 different species of exotics including Axis Deer, Aoudad Rams, Blackbuck Antelope and Quail.


McCrea Outdoors was started by Kenny McCrea in the summer of 1989. He started out with 8,000 acres in prime whitetail deer habitat in the San Angelo and Mertzon, Texas area.

McCrea Outdoors has expanded over the years and now hunts on over 75,000 acres. McCrea Outdoors offers some of the best low fence, free-ranging, fair-chase Texas whitetail hunts in the area.

We also offer excellent Rio Grande turkey hunting as well as 27 species of the most popular exotics. Some of our exotic ranches do offer 200″+ whitetail bucks upon request. These bucks are not low fence, but they certainly are beautiful trophies.

“Arise, Shine, for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.”

Isaiah 60:1


McCrea Outdoors works closely with the Texas Parks and Wildlife department in managing the deer herds on our ranches maintaining a buck to doe ratio of 1 to 1.5. We also keep the herd within the carrying capacity of the land that they live on. In our area of the state that is about one deer per 12-15 acres. That means there are a lot of deer and more importantly, a lot of bucks to choose from on any given Texas whitetail hunt.

McCrea Outdoors conducts helicopter surveys every year to determine the number of animals that need to be harvested to keep the herd healthy. Year in and year out we have been able to maintain a high percentage of mature deer in our buck population which stays in the 35-40% mature range.

We strive to kill only mature bucks after they have reached 5.5 years old or older. This allows them to reach their full antler growth potential and to live out a normal life span.
