Hunting

Personal attention, experienced dogs, and top-notch professional Texas guides you can expect all of these things and more when you hunt or fish at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort. Deer, Turkey, Quail, Chukar and Pheasant abound on our 11,000 of acres of prime hunting land, making Rough Creek one of Texas’ premier hunting destinations. We now offer exotics—including Axis Deer, Blackbuck Antelope, Fallow Deer, Aoudad Sheep, Corsican Rams, Black Hawaiian Rams and wild hogs.

Due to a change in Texas Parks and Wildlife policy, we no longer have the capability to sell hunting licenses on premises. Therefore, you must acquire a Texas Hunting License prior to your arrival. If you already have a license please make sure that it has not expired. All licenses expire on August 31, of the current year.
