We require a deposit equivalent to 1/2 of the total amount due for the hunt. This deposit may be made by check and is due at the time of booking the hunt. This deposit is non-refundable within 90 days of the hunt. The remainder of the total amount due must be paid by date indicated by contract and before arrival in cash, money order, or company check. No personal checks will be accepted. We will do our best to work with you if something unexpected happens causing you not to be able to make a scheduled hunt.

Smoking is allowed outside of the hunting lodge area.

A copy of this simple written contract is available upon request.All hunters are required to possess a valid Texas hunting license including any required stamps (archery, turkey, migratory waterfowl, etc.). All hunters born after September 1, 1971 must have successfully completed a Hunter's Education Training Course. Exception: Hunters age 16 and under can legally hunt without HETC if they are accompanied by a licensed hunter age 17 or older. There are not many places to purchase licenses in our service area.

Why should you book your hunt with Mesquite Country Outfitters?
First, our hunting property is among the best in Texas. This nine county area holds good numbers of mature animals that have had little or no hunting pressure. We have implemented intensive game management on the Pitchfork Ranch and some of the other properties we manage.
Our guides spend hundreds of hours in the field each year. They are skilled in bowhunting as well as hunting with a rifle. They will make your hunt one to remember. Whether you are a trophy hunter or a hunter who simply likes to see lots of wildlife, you will be impressed with their professionalism. They will structure your hunt to fit your request (stand hunting, stalking, hunt all day, hunt only early and late, etc.). Be sure to bring your camera!
Finally, we are totally committed to providing you with an outstanding outdoors experience. Our meals are excellent and accommodations are comfortable. We are a family oriented business and we will gladly do our best to accommodate your friends or family should they come along. Non-hunting guests are welcome and may stay at the lodge with meals included for $200 per person per day. We welcome handicapped hunters and, although we have no handicapped facilities yet, we will do our darndest to make their hunt enjoyable.
Our hunters are happy with the warm and courteous atmosphere provided. We listen to what our guests say and do our best to implement any reasonable suggestion. We will gladly provide references if you desire.
