MCLEAN  BOWMAN RANCH is a historic ranch having been in the continuous operation by the same family since the 1930’s. Here you can step back in time and enjoy the decades old tradition of hunting the South Texas mesquite thickets and river bottoms that are so vast and mysterious that even the guides don’t always know what to expect.


We are a hunting organization specializing in hunts for experienced hunters looking for large, free roaming bucks on large acreage. We cater to groups of eight hunters or individuals. We are located in Dimmit County, which is one of the best counties in the Golden Triangle of South Texas for large whitetail bucks. This year we will be offering to discerning hunters desiring excellent accommodations, food and camaraderie, the MCLEAN BOWMAN RANCH WHITETAIL HUNT PACKAGE.

The 2010 whitetail hunt package will be a 4 day hunt for $3,150.00, which includes a buck scoring up to 135 gross B&C score, and a second buck, guides choice. Hunters wishing to go over the 135 gross B&C score will have TROPHY FEES by the INCH added to the BASE PRICE of their hunt. Two does, two hogs and one javelina are included in this package. There may also be a chance at a third buck from our shoot off the list prices if available.

The MCLEAN BOWMAN RANCH has been under an intense management program for over 25 years. We have also been under a LEVEL 3 MLD PERMIT for the last 7 years. This means we tag all deer taken on the ranch with MLD PERMITS. You do not need to use your tags from your hunting license, just have a valid hunting license when you show up at the ranch. We specialize in-group hunting of up to (8) hunters at one time, for people who would like to hunt together.

All hunts include food, lodging, guiding and all animal capeing,skinning and quartering. There will be 2 hunters per guide on rifle hunts, unless other arrangements are made before the hunt to be one on one. There is an extra charge of $150.00 a day for this option. A rifle and bow hunter will have one guide, but two bow hunters will have to take the one on one option and split up with two guides with the extra $150.00 a day for the extra guide. Another unique feature we offer on a limited basis is by paying the extra fee for one on one guiding ($150.00 a day) a hunter may bring with them on their hunt one of their children  (between 8 and 15 years of age) at no additional charge to their package.The youth is encouraged to hunt the low-end buck but not the trophy buck.

In regard to the judging of score, hunters may request opinions from the guides, but in general a hunter is expected to pay for what he shot. A wounded buck (blood, bone, or meat) is considered to be a dead buck and will be charged accordingly as though it was harvested. The guides will determine the score. Although the outcome of a hunt is always unknown, especially on a large property like Mclean Bowman Ranch, we have managed to produce a 100% harvest rate for all hunters who have shot or passed up their bucks, throughout the 20 years we have operating a commercial hunting business.

MCLEAN BOWMAN RANCH adheres to the following reasonable rules and policies. If the hunter passes on a buck in his or her category and does not find another buck, then the passed up buck becomes the package hunt buck. In regard to the judging of score, hunters may request opinions from the guides, but in general a hunter is expected to pay for what he shot. A wounded buck ( blood, bone, or meat ) is considered to be a dead buck and will be charged accordingly as though it was harvested. The guides will determine the score. All decisions related to the hunt are made by the guide are final.
We take the aging of bucks very seriously, meaning that a buck has to be first judged by the guide to be eligible.
